CHED 6 director Raul C. Alvarez, Jr. presented the award to CAPSU vice president for administration and finance Dr. Wennie F. Legario.

Legario represented CAPSU president Dr. Editha C. Alfon in the event.

The University was recognized for its compliance with CHED Memorandum Order (CMO) No. 4, series of 2020 and CMO No. 6 series of 2022, which provide guidelines on the implementation of flexible learning and sustaining flexible learning in higher education, respectively. 

As provided under the CHED memo, flexible learning is a pedagogical technique that provides for time 

and location flexibility, uses both digital and non-digital technology, and covers both face-to-face and out-of-classroom learning or a combination of the two.

CAPSU Information Officer Christian George Acevedo noted that before the start of the Academic Year 2022-2023, CAPSU has made preparations for the limited face-to-face (FTF) implementation by retrofitting its classrooms to meet the standards set by the CHED, ensuring all these are compliant to the safety and hygiene guidelines.

Acevedo added that the University has invested in upgrading its facilities, with a particular focus on strengthening internet connectivity to safeguard access of at-home learners to the learning tools.

To date, CAPSU has enrolled 7,481 students from its nine existing campuses in the province for this school year 2022-2023. (AGP/PLF/PIA Capiz)
