As approved by Cebu Normal University (CNU) Board of Regents through Board Resolution No. 21, s. 2020 last April 29, 2020, the university has now finalized its approach for the current and upcoming school year in response to the ongoing global pandemic.
The CNU Strategic Action was formulated based on existing data and realistic scenarios to guide the students, faculty, non-teaching staff, and external stakeholders amidst the global health crisis, having undergone a series of revisions taking into consideration the results of the survey conducted by the university and the Supreme Student Council (SSC).
The said approach addressed the concerns about the computation of grades for all students, provision of alternative activities for students on clinical internship and practice teaching within the second semester, cancellation of the recognition rites, graduation ceremonies and classes in the mid-semester (graduate school), and the rescheduling of the on-the-job training courses.
Furthermore, it advised students not to come to the university until further advisory. Should there be a need to go to the university for very essential reasons, contacting the Office of Student Affairs is required.
The general public shall enter the campus only if necessary. No mask, no entry policy will be strictly enforced, and temperature check at the university gates and physical distancing in all offices will be strictly observed.
In addition, the administration encouraged all to raise their unanswered questions by accessing the full text of the University’s Strategic Action in CNU’s official website, messaging the school’s Public Information Office (PIO) Facebook page or by texting the Student Communication Center (SCC) hotline number posted in the said page as well.
Hon. Neil Joseph Iyog, CNU-SSC President believed that the Strategic Action is beneficial to everyone, as it took “into consideration all the stakeholders of the university from the non-teaching staff, faculty, and to the students to ensure everyone is given a win-win situation”.
“It was all thanks to the cooperation of the students as stakeholders of this university to let their genuine voices be heard, and SSC will always serve as the bridge between the administration and students,” he added.
