CTU relished CHED’s announcement on the former’s being one of a few grantees of the “Fostering World Class Philippine Universities Project.”
OIC Director for Internationalization and ASEAN Integration Ronald Galindo relayed the news to CTU President Rosein Ancheta Jr. following the agency’s confirmation via email dated June 4 of such a prestigious evaluation hopefully leading to the university’s attainment of Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) stars.
“We will be submitting the signed proposal on June 6, 2019 and also comply with the other requirements for this grant, ” said Dr. Galindo of the primary requirement CHED awaits for the process to commence.
QS, established by Nunzio Quacquarelli in 1989, creates a mechanism for leading institutions all over the world especially the academe to be audited in terms of research, employability, teaching, facilities,internationalization, innovation, engagement, and culture among others.
Benefits of QS (as per proposal) most assuredly point to “recognition of the university’s excellence across many areas, increased web presence, and highlighting institution not traditionally well placed in the rankings.”
Proposal for QS Stars has a contract value of $ 26, 845, which implies that CTU’s rallying cry should be to overcome the pressure and successfully go through the process at CHED’s expense. UICP
