Adamson University held the annual General Assembly of all employees at the University Theatre last August 5. Administrators, faculty members, and co-academic staff opened the school year 2019-2020 with renewed vigor and commitment to the credo of continuing a tradition of excellence in education.

Fr. Franklin Pilario, CM, Dean of the St. Vincent School of Theology, presided the opening mass along with the Vincentian priests who are serving as administrators in the university.

The host of the general assembly is the College of Science led by Dean Liria Dacanay. In her opening remarks, she reminded the Adamsonian community of advocating a Vincentian Education with a heart amidst the transformation of education in the country.

Different offices presented their milestones last school year, highlighting outstanding achievements in various academic programs, improvements in facilities, relevant student engagements, improved financial performance and expanded international scholarships and exchanges among others. Intermission numbers such of songs and dances were also performed to provide a festive mood to the program.

Fr. Marcelo V. Manimtim, CM, the University President, delivered his message and echoed the assembly’s theme, Vincentian Education for the Nation’s Growth. Fr. Manimtim reiterated the university’s commitment to provide quality education along with the challenges brought by the implementation of free tuition fees among public schools. He underscored the importance of sustained engagements in research and encouraged the faculty members to pursue researches that promote social responsibility and involvement.

The event was capped by an oath-taking ceremony of the newly appointed and reappointed administrators which was officiated by Fr. Manimtim.
