THE UNIVERSITY has opened a new information and communications technology unit under the supervision of the Office of the Rector, and reshuffled three other offices, the Office of the Secretary General announced last June 24.

The new Office of Information and Communications Technology is headed by Fr. Winston Cabading, O.P.

Rector Fr. Herminio Dagohoy, O.P. said the new office was formed to “harmonize” the Educational Technology (EdTech) Center and Santo Tomas e-Service Providers (STePs) under one office.

“[W]e would like to use the EdTech an–d the STePs [to] come up with a more functional office that could address the technological requirements of the University,” Dagohoy told the Varsitarian.

The Office of Planning and Quality Management (OPQM) and Office of QS/THE Rankings, formerly under the Office of the Vice Rector for Academic Affairs, were transferred to the Office of the Rector.

Prof. Clarita Carillo will still lead the OPQM with the rank of assistant to the Rector, while Nestor Ong will still be the deputy director for the QS/THE Rankings.

The Center for Creative Writing and Literary Studies (CCWLS) was moved to the Office of the Vice Rector. It was formerly under the Office of the Rector.

Prof. Cristina Pantoja Hidalgo and Assoc. Prof. Ralph Galan remain the director and assistant director of CCWLS, respectively. CHARM RYANNE C. MAGPALI
