Reborn@28: Malabon U city takes global education to the next level

Malabon City University (CMU) celebrated its 28th anniversary with certifications and achievements that empower its students to become transformative leaders and innovative citizens of tomorrow.

Over the past few years, CMU has experienced phenomenal growth: improving its faculty, modernizing its facilities and infrastructure during the pandemic, and increasing course offerings – some with industry partnerships – that put them on par with best local universities in the country.

Allaiza Mae Alamo, a third-year student at CMU’s Teacher Training College, recalled what the school was like before: “We didn’t have the advanced facilities needed to improve our skills and be updated with the best practice. Now we have chemistry and computer labs, a podcast room, and a criminology lab, which houses a state-of-the-art polygraph machine.

Additionally, there is now a renovated student center building, which houses a canteen on the first floor, a student lounge and club offices on the second, and a media room on the third.

The university also held a breakthrough event for the construction of a 5-storey multi-purpose building to provide 10 additional classrooms for its business administration students.

CMU President Prof. Melissa Grace Sison-Oreta is proud of recent achievements as the school remains true to its vision of being “a home of Global Malabonians”: “Today, CMU is now ISO certified, [as the United Registrar of Systems Philippines granted an] ISO 9001:2015, which means that CMU’s quality management system complies with international standards. »

Earlier this year, the educational institution also added another distinction when nine of its programs were accredited by the Accrediting Commission of the Association of Local Colleges and Universities. The agency has recognized CMU’s accounting program with Level 1 accreditation; while early childhood education, public administration, journalism and managerial accounting have been granted “candidate status”. This makes CMU one of the leading accredited universities in the Caloocan, Malabon, Navotas and Valenzuela, or Camanava region.

Since CMU received a Certificate of Eligibility from the Commission on Higher Education, it can now enjoy the privileges specified under Republic Act 10931 or the Universal Access to Higher Education Act of quality. Since last year, CMU – with the help of the United Student Financial Assistance System for Tertiary Education, or UniFAST – has been very enthusiastic about complying with the requirements necessary to acquire said certification, so that all CMU students can access Free Education. This means learners like Alamo can gain knowledge, improve their skills, and prepare for the future, all while studying for free at CMU.

“As a student at CMU and witnessing all of these changes, I can attest that our institution’s annual development and innovation shapes us to be more capable leaders,” said Alamo.

Even amid the pandemic, the university has ensured its students can still get the education they deserve, launching a series of webinars on new technologies, while also providing free SIM cards with a stipend. monthly charge for data connection.

CMU’s 28th year is an opportunity to be reborn, with a renewed, stronger and bolder identity.

“I’m just one of more than 5,000 CMU students who have experienced this total improvement,” Alamo added. “I am now proud to announce to everyone that I am a student at CMU because I know that I could acquire here the quality global education that I need to succeed in life.”

It is said that the hope of a nation lies in its youth, and with its quality education, the future of the Malabon student is brighter and brighter than ever, thanks to CMU.
