AdU Partners with NFCPWD in ASL Program

Date Posted: Mar 2, 2009 at 05:58:21 AM

As part of the Academic Service Learning (ASL) Program of the University, AdU President Fr. Gregorio L. Banaga, Jr., C.M. signed a letter of understanding last February 09, 2009 with the National Federation of Cooperatives of Persons with Disabiity (NFCPWD), which was represented by its general manager, Mr. Johnny Lantion. With this tie-up, two courses will be tapped for ASL activities. These are the Ergonomics class of Industrial Engineering Department under the College of Engineering, and Marketing Department of the College of Business Administration. The signing was witnessed by Dr. Myra Anes, Assistant to the VPAA, Engr. Jesus Manalastas, Dean of the College of Engineering, Dr. Carl Miniano, Business Management Department Chairperson, Engr. Maida dela Cueva, IE Department Chairperson, and Engr. Noe Enriquez, IPPDO Director and ASL Program Officer-In-Charge.




NFCPWD is a federation of 12 primary cooperatives in the country–7 in Luzon, 2 in Visayas, and 3 in Mindanao. These cooperatives were established to produce facilities, particularly school chairs and desks. It was certified by the Cooperative Development Authority as the only secondary-level cooperative of Persons with Disability (PWD) engaged in manufacturing quality school desks and chairs.


Initial Implementation


As a starter for ASL activity, a group of Industrial Engineering students enrolled in Ergonomics class visited the NFCPWD manufacturing plant in Taytay, Rizal last March 12, 2009. Using their ergonomics equipments, the students gathered data including anthropometric measurement of workers, noise level, illumination or intensity of light, and other parameters of the different workstations. These data will be used to analyze the design of the workplace. Before the end of the semester, the recommendations to make the workplace safe and ergonomically designed will be presented.


AdU ASL Program


Adamson University started the adaption of ASL as one of the innovative teaching strategies three years ago. From then on, more faculty members were able to take note of its advantages and started to integrate it to their course syllabi. The main objective is to enable the University to make a significant contribution to the efforts of various universities to ensure that the graduates are engaged in community development and be more responsible citizens.
