by: L. Munalim | posted May 23, 2022

Undergraduate students from the four academic units of the Philippine Women’s University (PWU) will now see their professors and classmates physically hopefully starting this month of May 2022, following the successful ocular visit of the Manila Health Department on the readiness of PWU to conduct expanded face-to-face classes.

School of Pharmacy, School of Music, School of Fine Arts and Design, and Campus Life/Sports are set to conduct limited in-person classes within the ongoing third trimester of the academic year 2021-2022.

“The inspection for expanded F2F classes was a breeze. Dr. Laya shall issue the certification on Monday (May 22, 2022),” Mr. Sherwin Toriano heralded the good news to the PWU President, Chancellor/SVPAA, Deans, and Program Chairs.

Last February 2022, the School of Nursing and School of Medical Technology successfully piloted limited face-to-face classes, whose pilot conduct serves as the model for all of the units of the University.

As recalled, PWU held a stakeholders’ general assembly on May 12, 2022 at 2:00 p.m. via Google Meet and YouTube. Breakout sessions were also conducted for elaborate orientation on each of the Schools’ protocols.

All academic units of the University are likely to conduct limited in-person classes starting the first trimester of academic year 2022-2023 which commence in August 2022. The implementation will follow specific clustering of general education, professional, and practicum courses.

Heads of the Limited F2F Committee are Mr. Sherwin Toriano and Dr. Minerva De Ala.
