Cebu Normal University (CNU) conducted a 2019 Year-End Performance Evaluation to examine its achievements and developments in the entire year.
The event was spearheaded by the Planning and Development Office and was attended by administrative council members and unit heads. It was held last December 13, 2019 at the Well Hotel.
The evaluation aimed to review the objectives and deliverables of the University as well as to give an update on CNU’s plans and projects relative to the University’s strategic directions, namely: Sustaining Quality and Relevance; Enhancing Research, Development, and Innovation; Expanding Community Engagement and Linkages; Digitization and Automation of Operations; and Maximizing Resource Generation and Utilization.
Presidential Assistant for Planning and Development Dr. Floriza Laplap said that aside from the mid-year and year-end performance review and planning, a performance monitoring is also done to evaluate the Programs, Activities, and Projects (PAPs) of unit heads.
The strategic directions were formulated at the onset of Dr. Filomena Dayagbil’s presidency and are used as bases for making and monitoring the PAPs and a guide for the operational plans of colleges, and others.
“Nice man gud kung naa tay mga performance evaluation to keep track ba kung asa nata (It is nice to have performance evaluations to keep track of where we are),” she said.
National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) VII Senior Economic Development Specialist Ednie Casiller also graced the year-end performance evaluation and discussed how the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) can be applied in State Universities and Colleges (SUCs).
Dr. Laplap said that CNU has already made initiatives to include the SGDs in the curriculum. She said that based from her discussions with Dr. Dayagbil, it is initially discussed that the 2017-2021 strategic plan will be revised or enhanced to incorporate more (and give emphasis) to the SDGs.
She said that in every PAP, quality assurance is observed because “CNU does not settle for less. It always aims for the best.” (JDF)
