Dr. Evelyn R. Campiseño, on her message, emphasized the readiness of JRMSU to embrace the challenges alongside the ASEAN Integration and the K+12 Curriculum implemented by the DepEd as a stepping stone for our educational system reform to walk along other ASEAN countries.
Dr. Balbuena also urged the students to work hard on their studies in order to compete with the other universities in ASEAN. Moreover, he also challenged the faculty to make their teaching coherent with that of the integration.
The said launching was originally scheduled on the morning of January 5, but due to the bad weather, it was rescheduled on Tuesday. -Rodavarg Vincent B. Gravador, TSC
