Riverside College recently hosted the expanded board meeting of the Philippine Association of Colleges and Universities (PACU).
PACU is composed of higher educational institutions (HEIs) with members nationwide.
The association aims to contribute to nation-building through transformative private higher education by mutual cooperation among the colleges and universities and strengthens its members’ capabilities, by advocating relevant and effective education policies.
According to Riverside College President Samuel Z. Lee, PACU advocates improvements in the quality of education for all in the Philippines especially in higher education which is also aligned with what Riverside College seeks to address.
Meanwhile, Riverside Planning and Data Privacy Officer Angela Erbite said this is the first time that the PACU Board Meeting was held in Bacolod City, hosted by the Riverside College.
The PACU Board of Trustees is composed of the presidents of different private colleges and universities from Greater Manila Area, Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.
