Cebu Normal University (CNU) met, for the first time, with its new Chair in the Board of Regents, Commission on Higher Education (CHED) Commissioner Aldrin Darilag, to discuss the university’s readiness for face-to-face (F2F) classes for the academic year (AY) 2022-2023.

Darilag was designated as the new Chair of the CNU Board of Regents after its former Chair, Commissioner Perfecto Alibin retired from the Commission on February.

In his inspirational message, Darilag expressed his excitement to be working with CNU and vowed to support and enrich the University to make it a model institution in the country.

“I am humbled and excited to be opening up new doors to the future of our learners, our educators, and to CNU as a quality higher education institution.” Darilag said.

“I will relentlessly pursue the desired transformational development that this institution requires and eventually advance CNU as an archetype of higher education in the entire nation.” he added.

Darilag visited CNU on March 30, 2022, and met with its administrative officials for a roundtable discussion on the University’s readiness for F2F classes for the next AY.

Dr. Daisy R. Palompon, CNU Vice-President for Academic Affairs, presented the CNU Report on F2F Classes Readiness and highlighted the University’s efforts and initiatives which earned the LGU and the Commission’s go signal for limited F2F classes for both the College of Nursing (CN) and the College of Medicine (CoM).

The preparations done by the two colleges will become the prototype for the rest of the colleges to benchmark on for their own programs.

Darilag posed no objections for the opening of next AY’s classes in F2F but encouraged the University to take into consideration the opinions of its stakeholders in crafting its implementing guidelines.

After his CNU visit, Darilag convened the University’s Board of Regents for its 102nd meeting. (KFR)
