Highlights on the Academic Council Meeting for January 2017


On 11 January 2017, the Academic Council, the academic policy making body of the University composed of the Deans and the Academic Vice President, met at AVR 8 for its regular meeting. Representing the student body is Edison Lacea, President of XU-CSG.

Among others, the academic council discussed the new instrument for Faculty Evaluation by students. Last November, with the help of the XU-CSG Department of Academic Affairs, Dr Jovelyn Delosa (Chairman of Ad-hoc Committee on the Instrument for Faculty Evaluation by Students) conducted a consultation on the proposed new tool with students from six colleges. Dr Delosa presented the results of the consultation during the meeting, noting that students commented the new tool was lengthy and comprehensive. However, the students consulted also noted that as long as the value of the evaluation tool is made clear, then students should be able to answer the tool accurately.

The new instrument for Faculty Evaluation by students will have impact on the 360 evaluation of Faculty which will be implemented once all instruments have been finalized. Currently, student evaluations do not have impact on the overall evaluations of teachers, and is used primarily for ranking and promotion.

The Academic Council also tackled XU's prospective application for Institutional Accreditation to PAASCU. Fr Pabayo, new Quality Management Office Director, outlined the requirements for Institutional Accreditation and pointed out that XU is able to meet all requirements for the said accreditation.

There have also been talks on the new General Education Curriculum of XU following the K-12 Transition. Some courses have been identified to be part of the new GEC of XU, however discussions will still follow.

The Magna Carta of Students' Rights and Responsibilities empowers the XU-CSG to represent the student body to various administrative policy-making bodies, including the Academic Council.
