A survey visit was conducted by the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (PAASCU) to the College of Performing and Visual Arts (COPVA) to accredit its Bachelor in music program last January 30-31.
“We did so many things, prepared everything that they recommended to us after their first visit,” said Dr. Elizabeth Susan Vista Suarez, Dean of COPVA.
The accrediting team was composed of the following: Fr. Generous Gonesto, Staff Chairperson and OSA- Human Resource Director of Colegio San Agustin-Biñan; Mr. Patrick August Anthony Soriano and Ms. Josefina Antonio.
The PAASCU preliminary visit took place last September 2016 where the team observed the music program and gave evaluations as well as recommendations to the faculty for future accreditation visits.
Accreditors conducted faculty and classroom observations, interviewed the faculty and examined an exhibit in the Multipurpose Hall. The accrediting team was then invited by COPVA to visit their extension program at West City Elementary School, Dumaguete City.
Dr. Suarez on the outcome of the survey-visit said: “We are very hopeful that we will pass the survey visit.”
As of now, the results of the accreditation has not yet been released. If the result of the survey-visit is successful, the music program will be granted the accreditation status of level one.
