Colleges Establish New Names

Date Posted: Aug 2, 2010 at 01:13:52 AM


Two colleges in Adamson University have recently made changes to their names.

 

Pursuant to the memoranda issued separately, the College of Sciences will now be formally known as the College of Science while the College of Education and the College of Liberal Arts have merged into the College of Education and Liberal Arts (CELA).

 

In its memo released to the community on August 6, the College of Science dean Dr. Ma. Gladiola Santos gives a brief explanation on its change of name: “The word science is the general term referring to the entire field and system of study as well as the organized body of knowledge gained using that system. On the other hand, the term “sciences” is used when we are referring to the specific fields of science. (www.sciencemadesimple.com/science-definition)

 

Correspondingly, the college is the bigger body (the science) composing of the specific departments (the sciences).”

 

As for CELA, the two have long been separate but were under the helm of one man, Dr. Servillano Marquez Jr., for more than two years. Dr. Marquez stays on as CELA dean.

 

The changes were made under instructions from the Office of the Vice President of Academic Affairs and attested by the Academic Council. The Adamson University community is advised to use these new names “in all communication that contains reference to [these] colleges for the sake of correctness and consistency.” Yael Esperat
