|Among other things, President Editha L. Magallanes |
sought to build on the strength of the community
in order to accomplish the vision and mission of the University.
In the past school year, the Capiz State University administration under the leadership of President Editha Magallanes led the tour of the ten (10) campuses to deliver a number of tasks. President Editha L. Magallanes made sure to brief the campus administrators, faculty and staff on the latest budget scheme as per the normative funding. In so doing, the administration sought to reinforce and encourage the teaching-learning effectiveness while identifying the strengths and weaknesses of the University to improve instruction.
And throughout the year, President Editha L. Magallanes deemed it wise to conduct monitoring and evaluation of accomplishments of the ten campus administrators to ensure that teaching and learning activities are made favorable to the students and the faculty.
Through the efforts of the administration, Capiz State University accomplished the NBC 461 4th Cycle evaluation of the faculty members. And to date, under Dr. Magallanes, the CapSU administration submitted for NBC 461 5th Cycle Evaluation to the Zonal Center for professional growth of the faculty. To keep them abreast with the needs of the times, the administration facilitated the attendance and participation of faculty members in seminars, trainings workshops and similar other activities designed to equip and enhance their competence and performance.
In July 2010, Dr. Magallanes also took the initiative to host a one-day seminar for all faculty and staff on health care. This was done to give everyone proper guidance and tips on how to maintain good health and become healthy individuals both in mind and body. Dr. Romeo F. Baron, both a doctor and a nutritionist, made waves in the CapSU community when he presented to debunk old myths on health and nutrition. The whole-day lecture and forum that rather shook some people from their comfort zones and old-school expertise wowed and drew favorable criticism and appreciation from the faculty and staff from all the ten campuses.
Recognizing the importance of information campaigns on vital issues affecting its constituents, Capiz State University hosted the Seminar on the Implementing Rules and Regulations of Republic Act No. 9184, otherwise known as the Act Providing for the Modernization, Standardization and Regulation of the Procurement Activities of the Government and for other Purposes. Then, to provide support for all employees on their compensation, the University also hosted a conference on Retirement Plans and Benefits under the Government Service Insurance System (GSIS).
Inspired to learn skills on how to deliver prompt performance and thereby render efficient management, the University faculty and staff attended the Performance Management System Office Performance Evaluation System, the so-called PMS-OPES headed by Director Cynthia P. Gellegani of the Civil Service Commission, Provincial Office.
To update the faculty and staff on the legal implications of students and personnel matters particularly in public schools, President Magallanes sought the expertise of Atty. Ulpiano P Sarmiento III, representative of the A Teacher party list in the 14th Congress. The initiative was well lauded by the participants across the ten campuses.
|With confidence in their competence and commitment, President Editha L. Magallanes|
considers the best for the CapSU faculty—thus she fully supports personnel movement,
if only to reward their efforts and daily sacrifices.
And effective January 13, 2010, Capiz State University officially became Civil Service Accredited, while its implementation took effect on October 1, 2010.
The CapSU Board of Regents likewise facilitated the submission of Resolution for the Construction of the Two-storey Administration Building through the efforts of Cong. Eulogio R. Magsaysay, representative of the Alliance of Volunteer Educators (AVE) Party List whose scholarships also benefited the poor but deserving CapSU students.
In her best effort to provide conducive working environment to the Central Administration personnel and staff, President Editha L. Magallanes promptly moved for the renovation and construction of the offices of the Internal Audit Section, Budget Section, Accounting Section, Human Resource Division (HRD), Bids and Awards Committee (BAC) and Supply and Property.
Moreover, the central administration personnel particularly the human resource department submitted the supplemental plantilla and other DBM requirements for the release of Allotment for the re-classification of positions. The administration also had the service records of faculty and staff encoded and emailed to the GSIS database and portal and also facilitated the reclassification of 18 non-teaching personnel.
