Commission on Higher Education Negros Island Region (CHED-NIR) assessed Negros Oriental State University (NORSU) for performance and compliance of mandated student services this academic school year 2016-2017.
CHED-NIR Director Freddie T. Bernal issued a memorandum evaluating the performance of State Universities and Colleges (SUCs) and Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs), and monitoring the plans, policies and guidelines promulgated by CHED prompting NORSU to follow.
As per se, NORSU needs to enforce healthy sanitation in the university canteen and food stalls in partnership with the Department of Health (DOH).
Accordingly, the university is also obliged to inspect the buildings and facilities to defeat risks during earthquake, typhoon and other natural disasters.
“Kinahanglan gud ni siyang ma-comply within the year because this will provide security to students and it is for strict compliance of CHED. Hopefully, students will cooperate and enjoy their university life,” University Security Management Office (USMO) Director Rosalinda Abellon said.
Throughout June, Abellon disclosed orientation on human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and seminar on teenage pregnancy and sexual harassment were already complied by the University.
“Ni-request mi sa Philippine National Police (PNP) to monitor Kagawasan Avenue para dili maggubot and to prevent danger,” Abellon added.
Accordingly, the regional office advised the university to comply with these measures and directives.
