During the current academic year, the new acting Dean of the College of Arts, Sciences and Education, together with the two program heads of each program continues to nurture the students through their guidance and support.
This academic year brought in a new set of students and teachers that joined the College of Arts, Sciences and Education. Along with the significant changes that were made, the department welcomed a new acting dean who is a proud alumna from CASE. Dr. Jan-Dolly Grace Deita was an education graduate of batch 1999. She has been teaching in Colegio San Agustin-Bacolod for quite some time and she is now a hardworking leader and an inspiring mentor who made a great contribution to the growth of her students. CASE may seem small in numbers but the students grew up to be diligent and competitive with the guidance and encouragement of their beloved acting dean.
Two programs under the department also continued to strive for academic excellence throughout the years and this was made possible with the help of two women. First, is Dr. Ana Roberta Guanco who is the area head of the Arts and Sciences Program. She has been producing board exam top-notchers and successful mental health professionals in her years of teaching. She is considered to be the mother of the Psychology students who looked up to her as their inspiration in pursuing their dreams to be mental health professionals. One of the significant achievements of the Arts and Sciences is its growth in numbers. This posed a challenge for the teachers of the said program but nevertheless, the quality of education and the training given to the students has become even more higher.
CASE’s Education program also performed well under the leadership of Dr. Lanie Campillanos. She has been working in CSA-B as a Physical Education teacher while leading the program to produce well-rounded and innovative Augustinian educators. She kept the standard that the school has as the top performing Teacher Education school in Bacolod City. From the students’ satisfactory academic performance to their co-curricular achievements, Ms. Campillanos has been supporting the students in their pursuit for excellence. Indeed, it can be said that the education students have been trained well under her guidance and are expected to graduate as well-rounded and intelligent individuals. Under the challenges that the students faced due to the limitations in the online setting, they were nurtured by the best set of leaders that gave them hope for a better future. These women who stood in the face of adversity managed to rise and also lift their students up. CASE has grown to be productive during this time and it will continue to do so. It is clear that the perseverance and dedication of these women has inspired the students to do their best in everything they do. These women also had set their heart and mind in doing their best to produce globally competitive psychologists and educators for years to come.
