MANILA–To formally signify their intention to establish linkage in the areas of teaching, research, and academics, officials of two Catholic Higher Eduation Institutions signed a Memorandum of Understanding on February 20, 2020.
De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde Chancellor Robert Tang and San Sebastian College-Recoletos de Cavite Vice President for Administration Fray Rommel L. Rubia, OAR put pen to paper at the Executive Lounge of the Andrew Cafe in Malate, Manila. Fray Rubia signed the MOU on behalf of SSC-R de Cavite School President Fray Rafael B. Pecson, OAR.
The said memorandum identified the coordinators for the interaction between the institutions, namely Mr. Mark Humphrey Mendoza, DLS-CSB Academic Linkages Office Director, and Mrs. Maria Soledad T. Tubay, Institutional Advancement, Parents and Alumni Relations Director.
Following the invocation, Mr. Tang welcomed guests to the signing ceremony and gave a short introduction, expressing DLS-CSB’s openness to helping other schools. “Thank you for trusting us with a partnership,” he said.
Ms. Manalili then presented an audiovisual presentation titled “Beat of Benilde” about the facilities of DLS-CSB’s three campuses. The presentation featured Benildeans from the Dance, Music Production, and Multimedia programs.
Mr. Tang and Fray Rubia signed the Memorandum of Understanding shortly thereafter.
