AUN Founding Member
DLSU Henry Sy, Sr. Hall
Built on the concept of a habitable tree, the DLSU Henry Sy, Sr. Hall commemorates the University's centenary and illustrates its growing role in Philippine education as well as its commitment to environmental responsibility.
Designed by the renowned architectural firm Leandro V. Locsin Partners, Architects, the Henry Sy, Sr. Hall boasts of a green roof, solar panels, a rainwater collection system, and a water re-use system. It has pocket gardens and open areas that support creativity and engage learners to generate new ideas.
In an effort to push its standards to the international level, DLSU in 2008 opened its doors to the ASEAN University Network-Quality Assurance (AUN-QA) for an assessment of its Chemical Engineering and Economics programs. The Chemistry, Literature, and Psychology programsalso underwent the assessment in 2010, and the Applied Corporate Management, Physics, and Software Technology programs in 2011. The AUN-QA gave positive feedback and ratings based on the information provided in the University’s self-assessment report, on-site verification of the documents, and interviews with selected stakeholders including faculty, staff, students, alumni members, and employers.
