Muhi received the Golden Wheel Award for Supporting Education last Saturday, January 28, in the Annual Rotary Awards Ceremony. The event was organized by the Rotary Club of Cubao West, in collaboration with Imagine Rotary and the Quezon City Local Government.</p> <p>President Muhi is recognized for Pamantasang Bayan — Education on Wheels — his flagship extension program which aims to deliver the brand of PUP quality education to the doorstep of every Filipino family. EOW prioritizes out-of-school youth (OSY) in depressed urban and rural communities and its ingenious approach to higher education has been recognized and featured in various national public affairs programs.</p> <p>60 young and adult learners joined the EOW pilot run last August. Classes are divided between day and night to accommodate single parents and working students. The university collaborated with Sandiwaan Center for Learning, a non-government organization dedicated to providing basic and technical education to the poor, to identify the beneficiary community in the City of Manila. Century Peak Corporation donated the bus which serves as mobile classroom for EOW.</p> <p>Aside from EOW, President Muhi also spearheaded the Salin-Kaalaman Program, another priority extension program of the PUP System which provides short courses, seminars, and trainings to nearby communities. Capacity programs include livelihood, education and training, leadership, and community management.</p> <p>“I am grateful to receive this award on behalf of the University. Thank you, Rotary Club of Cubao West, for this honor, Rotary Club of Loyola Heights for the endorsement. This kind of recognition emphasizes our significant role as educators in our country. Together with the whole PUP community, I am more than motivated and committed to continuing the programs we have begun and encouraging everyone to join us these initiatives,” Dr. Muhi shared in a text message.</p> <p>Rotary Club Cubao West is a charity organization under the larger Rotary global network. Its over 800 chapters across the country are involved in various forms of community service.</p> <p><img alt="President Muhi receives Rotary Gold Wheel Award" class="image image-full" src="https://i.ibb.co/rZL8k1P/2023-01-30-president-muhi-receives-rotary-gold-wheel-award.jpg" /></p> <br/><a href="http://www.pup.edu.ph/news/?go=6tD5V9x7%2bZg%3d">View this article in PUPWebSite</a> Mon, 30 Jan 2023 15:24:00 GMT http://www.pup.edu.ph/news/?go=6tD5V9x7%2bZg%3d PUP Santa Maria partners with Philippine Coast Guard Emy Ruth Gianan, News, Communication Management Office <br/><p>PUP Santa Maria, Bulacan Campus signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Philippine Coast Guard — Coast Guard Education, Training, and Doctrine Command (CGETDC) last January 24.

She also believes that these out-of-school youth can still catch up to other kids and that there is a great future for them. She hoped that most of the children may receive scholarships and educational assistance so that other out-of-school kids would be motivated and encouraged to continue learning and attend school in the future.</p> <p>At the end of the activity, the beneficiaries performed a thanksgiving song and dance number to the organizers of the activity as a way of appreciating the efforts given by the volunteers.</p> <p>Prior to this, a donation drive was launched with the help of generous people who offered monetary donations that were used to bring smiles to 31 children who received gifts, food, and safety whistles from this initiative. PUP NSTP Director Dr. Rovelina B. Jacolbia and NSTP CWTS Chief Asst. Professor Joey T. Danting together with the Sandiwa Officers are among the facilitators of this on-site activity.</p> <p><img alt="NSTP brings ABAKADA sa Kalsada to OSYs" class="image image-full" src="https://i.ibb.co/MNLn1BC/2022-12-29-nstp-brings-abakada-sa-kalsada-to-osys-1.jpg" /><br /> <br /> <img alt="NSTP brings ABAKADA sa Kalsada to OSYs" class="image image-full" src="https://i.ibb.co/pKpFpT9/2022-12-29-nstp-brings-abakada-sa-kalsada-to-osys-2.jpg" /></p> <br/><a href="http://www.pup.edu.ph/news/?go=Sg8S9ufpAJo%3d">View this article in PUPWebSite</a> Thu, 29 Dec 2022 11:03:00 GMT http://www.pup.edu.ph/news/?go=Sg8S9ufpAJo%3d QAC holds inaugural quality assurance awards Melanie Jimenez, News, Communication Management Office <br/><p>To culminate the last five years of quality culture practice in the University, the Quality Assurance Center (QAC) recognized the performance of colleges, branches, and campuses in the 1st QAC awards held last December 15 at Claro M.
