La Salle schools define “Lasallianess” in tertiary education meet

How Lasallian are our schools?

The “Lasallianess” of district and supervised schools in the Philippines was the focal point during the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) convention titled “Lasallianization of Higher Education Institutions of the Philippine District” held last October 21 at the Angelo King International Center.

Brother Victor Franco, FSC, outgoing Lasallian Animation and Formation Team director, delivered a talk on “What is a Lasallian tertiary school?”. This was followed by the presentation of a self-assessment instrument to measure the “Lasallianess” of La Salle district and supervised higher education institutions. The presenters were Dr. Herminia Torres, DLSU-Dasmariñas EVP; Brother Narciso Erguiza, FSC, District Education Officer; Dr. Carmelita Quebengco, DLSU-Manila EVP; Dr. Eduardo Gonzales, DLSU-Health Science Campus EVP; Ronald Holmes, DLSU-College of Saint Benilde EVP; and Pablito Sarmiento, DLS Lipa Tertiary School dean.

Representatives from the different Lasallian schools also discussed the strengths and weaknesses of their respective schools based on Brother Vic’s talk. They also mapped out directions for their institutions in the light of the self-assessment instrument.

Administration, faculty, and student delegates came from the following district and supervised schools from all over the country, namely: DLSU-Manila, DLSU-College of Saint Benilde, DLSU-Professional Schools, Inc., DLSU-Dasmariñas, DLSU-Health Sciences Campus, De La Salle Lipa Unified School, University of St. La Salle-Affiliate College, La Salle College-Victorias, Children of Mary Immaculate College, La Salle College-Antipolo, Andres Soriano Memorial College, University of St. La Salle, ICC-La Salle, and Colegio de San Benildo.

The members of the TEC were Quebengco, Torres, Gonzalez, Holmes, Erguiza, La Salle College-Antipolo Dean Dr. Teodoro Geronimo, DLS Lipa Graduate School Dean Dr. Corazon Abansi, and Christopher Polanco, assistant to the District Education officer.
