BONTOC, Mountain Province, Mar. 30. The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) awarded here today three Certificates of Compliance (COPC) to Mountain Province State Polytechnic College (MPSPC) on the programs Bachelor in Secondary Education (BSEd), Bachelor in Elementary Education (BEEd), and Bachelor of Science in Office Administration (BSOA) effective Academic Year 2016 – 2017.
Quality assurance as mandated by CHED is the “alignment and consistency of the learning environment with the institution’s Vision, Mission, and Goals (VMGO) demonstrated by exceptional learning and service outcomes and the development of a culture of quality.” Thus, ensuring quality education at MPSPC, the College committed itself to achieve quality education involving all of its units and other stakeholders in the process. This is one of the ideals and commitment of the College as it is clearly summarized in its VMGO and thrusts (HERITAGE). This kind of commitment, then, is transformed into having a conviction for Quality Assurance by ensuring that all of its programs meet the minimum requirements set by CHED as indicated in the programs’ respective Policies, Standards and Guidelines (PSGs) through CHED Memorandum Orders (CMOs).
The on-going AACCUP accreditation has been intense and hard for the Mountain Province State Polytechnic College during the past days.
According to Dr. Gina Lacaben, one of the overall coordinators of the task force on the accreditation, it is the first time of the College to incorporate the new instrument also known as the Outcome Based Survey Instrument in its accreditation. Compared to the old instrument used where the accreditors only look for the Self Survey reports, the new instrument now demands also for the Program Performance Profile and the Compliance reports on recommendations of the last visit from the college. MPSPC is still adjusting on this new method and it is a great challenge for the task force to fill in and provide all the documents needed for the new instrument.
