THE UNIVERSITY will shift to online classes on Friday, Aug. 25, the opening day of the FIBA Basketball World Cup set to be held in Bulacan, the Office of the Secretary General has announced.

Earlier, President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. suspended government work and classes at all levels in public schools in Metro Manila and Bulacan to ensure “the safe, orderly, and successful conduct” of the FIBA games.

In a memorandum dated Aug. 17, UST Secretary General Fr. Louie Coronel, O.P. said the University would utilize the “enriched virtual mode” of instruction on Aug. 25 “in consideration of some students and University staff who may, in one way or another be affected” by the class suspension.

Thomasians who are enrolled in internship, practicum, or on-the-job training courses must follow the work arrangements of their training facilities, Coronel said in the memo. 

Meanwhile, University support staff may be allowed to observe a work-from-home arrangement if their work can be done remotely.

Support staff who will be working from home must accomplish their task, deliverables, and deadlines (TDD) form on Aug. 25. 

Academic and administrative unit heads were asked to review the tasks of their support staff and decide their work arrangements, and supervise them should they work on-site.
