SSC sets 4-year policy directions
Sorsogon City (2 December) — Looking forward for the next four years as Sorsogon State College (SSC) president, Dr. Antonio E. Fuentes has laid down the directional policies he will pursue in his term commencing Tuesday (November 24) this year.
Fuentes averred that his proposed policies will feature among others the strengthening of faculty development guidelines for fellowship and faculty exchange program, search for outstanding faculty and employee of the year award system, acquisition of at least 10 hectares additional site for the Sorsogon campus, design of incentive package for faculty extensionists, and simplification of procurement process.
“My administration also looks forward to seeing the revision of Omnibus Rules in Rentals and of the SSC Code,” he said.
Still according to Fuentes, he will also further stress quality and specialization as he takes into account the recent years’ exponential growth in the number of scholars and research incentives in school.
“The growing number of board passers realized during his term is seen as an indication of the high morale by both students and teachers,” he added.
These new policy directions were proposed side by side with the directives by the SSC president to the school officials as per Memorandum No. 49, series of 2009 to submit monthly accomplishment updates and all fund balances in order to keep track of and get a holistic view of the school’s trajectory.
The President has also expressed his vision of further incentivizing student winners in contests through a package. This is in recognition of the significant students’ contribution to the institution as shown during accreditation and in the past years. (SSC/PIA Sorsogon)
