May 22, 2015, 5:42 p.m. – THE UNIVERSITY’S Bachelor of
Science in Pharmacy program has been granted Level IV accredited status by the
Philippine Association of Colleges and Universities – Commission on
Accreditation (PACUCOA), the highest recognition given by the accrediting body.

PACUCOA  granted  the Level IV status last May 12 after the
pharmacy program satisfactorily met all the criteria, namely: excellent
outcomes in teaching and learning, research productivity as tool for
institutional effectiveness, community service, linkages and consortia, career
planning and development for students, and planning process.

According to PACUCOA, academic programs granted the coveted
Level IV status are highly respected in the country, with prestige and
authority comparable to similar programs in excellent foreign universities.

“Our PACUCOA accreditation for Level IV status is a
collaborative work among administrative officials of the college, faculty
members, and students who were motivated to achieve this goal for our program,”
Pharmacy Dean Ma. Elena Manansala told the Varsitarian. “It means a
high-quality standard, [and] national and international recognition of the
program in a prevailing culture of excellence.”

The pharmacy program will have full autonomy from government
regulators for the duration of its Level IV accredited status, valid until
April 2019. Bianca Kristin A. Taray
