The aquaculture building in CTU Carmen had its first major rehabilitation since the 1950s, in compliance with recommendations by the Commission on Higher Education-Regional Quality Assessment Team (CHED-RQAT) and the Accrediting Agency of Chartered Colleges and Universities in the Philippines (AACCUP).
Campus Director Hector Abdon utilized the special trust fund for the project that started in January to cope with the level-3 status the Fisheries Department needs to uphold at present.
Despite existing alternative work arrangements that limit working hours due to Covid-19, workers met the deadline so the facility could initially serve as a quarantine area for 11 hospitality management interns from Thailand.
However, said individuals were not able to actually stay at the new building since they were accommodated in accredited hotels as soon as they landed the country in June.
Apart from the aforesaid reasons, Dr. Abdon said in a statement that the recent development, which features new walls, fish tank roof, and comfort rooms, among others, has now given students a better venue for learning. Jihan Comeros/ICPA Carmen
