SPAMAST undertook a three-day Online Accreditation Survey Visit conducted by the Accrediting Agency of Chartered Colleges and Universities in the Philippines Inc. (AACCUP) from April 25 to 27, 2022. AACCUP is the accrediting body of curricular programs in the Philippines, particularly for state universities and colleges. SPAMAST aimed to pursue excellence and ensure quality assurance for the programs under survey through the orderly, systematic, comprehensive, and academically professional virtual assessment and evaluation by the respective AACCUP accreditors. Led by Dr. Arnel B. Millesca, the overall coordinator for the accreditors team, two graduate programs and three undergraduate programs were evaluated for Level III Phase 2: MS in Marine Biodiversity, MA in Education Major in Educational Management, BS in Agricultural Technology, BS in Agribusiness, and BS in Information Technology. During the exit conference held on April 27, 2022, Dr. Millesca gave his impression of SPAMAST’s evaluation process. He expressed commendation on the dedication of the institution in providing the necessary documents and other modes of verification (MOVs). SPAMAST President Dr. Ruth S. Lucero gave her statement of commitment and pledged that she will faithfully take the appropriate management actions based on the findings and recommendations of the accreditation board. She also recognized the efforts of the accreditors team and thanked them for being patient, understanding, reasonable, rational, and enduring during their collaboration with the different area leaders from SPAMAST for the accreditation. The online accreditation culminated with closing remarks from Dr. Lynette A. Bontia, the SPAMAST Chief Administrative Officer, where she expressed acceptance of whatever results of the final verdict on the accreditation board’s evaluation of the five programs under survey.
