“Let’s move forward towards the success and upliftment of WVCST…” Words of encouragement from Dr. Luis M. Sorolla,Jr., who recently gave a speech in the oath taking ceremony of the new WVCST-Dumangas Campus Administrator.
The College President said that we still have miles to go and that we should continue to move and cooperate for the advancement of the College especially with the expected implementation of the bill signed by Philippine President Benigno S. Aquino III, converting the College into a University. He gladly announced that WVCST has already completed and submitted the new requirements asked by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and that the board is just hoping that they will evaluate these documents soon for certification. According to him, as soon as the CHED gives their certification, the College can immediately implement the use of the new name – Iloilo Science and Technology University or ISAT-U. The old name Western Visayas College of Science and Technology or WVCST will be kept in the records of history and automatically the satellite campuses will also adopt the new name as ISAT-University, Dumangas, Barotac Nuevo, Leon and Miag-ao Campus respectively.
Dr. Sorolla further emphasized that even if we enjoy the present status, we have to remember that we have responsibilities to do as well as promises and duties to keep for the rest of our journey to be able realize our dream.
