New faculty members attend HRMU Orientation By Marjorie Moreno – Alforque
The newly hired full-time and part-time faculty members of the Mindanao University of Science and Technology (MUST) attended the University Orientation organized by the Human Resource Management Unit (HRMU) last July 29, 2013 at the ICT – AVR.
The program was formally opened by the Vice President for Administration and General Services, Mr. Romeo N. Naces, who received the faculty of the University with much enthusiasm. One of the highlights of the orientation program is the discussion of the HRMU functions and university’s mission and
peer-reviewed research journal published annually by the university. It publishes scientific and innovative researches in science and engineering disciplines covering the main areas of science and technology and other related studies. All manuscripts submitted undergo a double-blind review process wherein the identity of the authors is concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, lest the knowledge of authorship or concern about disapprobation from the author bias their review.
The Editorial Board, with the leadership of its editor Dr. Consorcio S. Namoco Jr., decides on the acceptability of the manuscript after evaluating the compliance of the author/s to the instructions and comments of the referees. A manuscript is accepted when it is endorsed for publication by at least two referees. The MJST “aims to promote original researches in science and technology (S&T) and S&T-related studies in the Philippines, particularly in Mindanao. Contributions from foreign authors are welcome. It also aims to disseminate researches, good practices and innovations in science and technology to their prime audience including educators, researches and industry practitioners and policy makers. It further aims to provide avenue where experts and scientists in the scientific and technological fields share and discuss their high quality and relevant researches.”
The newly hired faculty members listen intently as the Heads of different offices illustrate their functions and services.
By Marjorie Moreno – Alforque The Human Resource Management Unit (HRMU) opened the school year with an attitude for well-being and an accompanying bang when it led the launching of the “Hataw Na” sessions last July 10, 2013.
The “Hataw Na” activity which is regarded by the faculty and staff from the different divisions as a break in their sedentary routine is truly enjoyed with the mixture of modern dances and stretching sessions conducted by trainers Mr. Joel O. Abratiguin, dance instructor, and Mr. Leovigildo Palmones, the school fitness coordinator.
HRMU launches “Hataw Na” in MUST Sessions are to be held every Wednesday from 4 to 5 PM and every Friday from 5 to 6 PM at the University Gymnasium which would hopefully make this a sustainable activity the whole year round.
The HRMU initiated the one-hour fitness program to encourage employees of the University to start up and develop an attitude to seek wellness and to be fit and healthy. The HRM Unit believes that the employees’ wellness is important to maintain productivity and efficiency at work, which is an essential component of a dynamic institution like the MUST. Get on with it and be FIT! Hataw na!
Moderators’ Advisorship Capability Building held By Jo Mark M. Libre
The University thru the Student Affairs and Welfare Office (SAWO) conducted a CAPABILITY BUILDING ON MODERATORS’ ADVISORSHIP: THE TRANSFORMATIONAL LEADERSHIP with the theme “Effective Campus Advising for Sustainable Student Leadership Development” last July 22-23, 2013 at the MUST AVR 1, ITB Bldg. The Seminar-workshop aims to enhance campus mentorship that will widen, inspire, empower, and nurture the leadership of MUSTeans; instill the importance of responsible campus advisorship; and guide the moderators with their respective roles and responsibilities in accordance with University Policies. Through the seminar-workshop, more moderators are expected to become actively engaged and committed to bringing change in their respective organizations. Participants of the said activity are moderators from university-based student organizations.
The faculty and staff of MUST take a break from work as they enjoy the exercise routines during a “Hataw Na” session at the university gymnasium.
