THE EDUCATION High School topped the academic unit category for the overall total quality management (TQM) quality audit conducted by the Office for Planning and Development (OPD) for the academic year 2004-2005.

The overall winner was based on the three-quarter audit done by the OPD. The fourth quarter audit was not pursued due to time constraints.

The academic, administrative, and service offices were rated based on workplace management. A high score means that the workplace is conducive for the employees to be more productive.

The UST Graduate School and the College of Education ranked second and third, respectively.

Meanwhile, the Office of the Vice-Rector for finance topped in the non-academic units (with at least six personnel) category. The Human Resource Department ranked second, while the Office of the Vice-Rector for Academic Affairs placed third.

Among the non-academic units with a maximum of five personnel, the Center for Professional Development and Consultancy Services, Center for Research and Development, and Center for Educational Research and Development ranked first, second, and third respectively.

On the other hand, OPD also held an essay writing contest for Thomasians about TQM.

Winners were Master of Business Arts (non-thesis) student Gepte Muñez (graduate student category), Education senior John Henry Sagun (undergraduate student category), Faculty of Medicine and Surgery medical technologist Simonette De Vera (non-academic employee category), and College of Commerce and Accountancy professor Rogelio Delos Santos (faculty category).

According to OPD executive assistant Delfin Jacob, they are already preparing for the audit of the teaching methodology of the faculty. They also aim to rate the student organizations and building facilities. John Rheeno T. Cabangcalan
