DandanTHE COLLEGE of Education unveiled a marker on the façade of the Albertus Magnus Building last Aug. 29, boasting of the institution’s new status as a Center of Excellence (COE) in education.

Dean Clotilde Arcangel, Regent Fr. Romulo V. Rodriguez, O.P., and a crowd of professors and students in yellow shirts flocked to the building’s hallway after the college’s monthly mass celebration at the UST Chapel, after which Rodriguez and Arcangel unveiled the marker.

The silver plaque placed near the building’s entrance should serve as a reminder to students of the college’s responsibility in bearing a COE status, Arcangel told the Varsitarian.

“The marker should remind the students of what we are and what we should do,” Clotilde said. “It should inspire our students and professors to keep striving hard in every aspect to maintain this remarkable status as COE.”

Education was declared by the Commission on Higher Education as a Center of Excellence together with the teacher-education programs of De La Salle University, Philippine Normal University, and Centro Escolar University, until June 2, 2011.

After the brief program, Rodriguez suspended classes to celebrate the feat.

Meanwhile, a testimonial luncheon was held at the AMV College of Accountancy Multi-Purpose Hall for those who passed the August 2008 Nutrition board exam, led by topnotcher Frederich Christian Tan.

Other UST COEs are the College of Architecture, Faculty of Medicine and Surgery, College of Nursing, and the Conservatory of Music.
