Patitin Lertnaikiat
AUN Programme Officer;

The ASEAN University Network Quality Assurance (AUN-QA) 284th Programme Assessment took place online with Lyceum of the Philippines University - Batangas on July 18 - July 22, 2022. Lyceum of the Philippines University-Batangas (LPU-B), a private tertiary educational institution, was established in 1966 by the late Senator, Dr. Sotero H. Laurel. This is the first Programme Assessment and the first online/remote site visit cooperation between AUN-QA and LPU-B. To commemorate the establishment of this new collaboration, AUN-QA would like to feature LPU-B President, Dr. Peter P. Laurel’s outstanding opening speech to the Programme Assessment.

“The challenges and opportunities we are all experiencing today make this virtual visit possible. We are grateful that despite the current situation, AUN-QA continues its advocacy to promote quality assurance in higher education institutions and to raise the bar of quality in the ASEAN region. LPU being one of the autonomous universities in the Philippines strives to maintain and enhance the quality and excellence of our programs and services. This assessment will be a learning opportunity for all of us as we elevate our standards to international benchmarks.”

Throughout the five-day Programme Assessment, AUN-QA will be assessing 4 Bachelor of Science programs, Business Administration, Medical Laboratory Science, Nursing, and Marine Transportation. The first AUN-QA Programme Assessment with Lyceum of the Philippines University - Batangas serves as one of the big stepping stones towards future collaborations for the coming years between AUN-QA and LPU-B.
