The Cebu Institute of Technology – University opened doors for the members of the Philippine Association of Colleges and Universities (PACU) as a proud co-host of the PACU General Assembly and National Conference 2023 on September 30th 2023. As the current President of PACU, CIT University is also the first university from the Visayas and Mindanao in the association’s 91-year history to lead this organization.

The event, held under the overarching theme “Reimagining Our Education Futures Together,” marked a significant milestone for PACU. While the main venue buzzed with intellectual fervor at the Makati Diamond Residences in Makati City, PACU members from across the country actively participated online via Zoom. The virtual corridors echoed with discussions and insights, thanks to the dedicated satellite venues at St. Paul University Philippines (SPUP) in Tuguegarao City, Cebu Institute of Technological – University in Cebu City, and Mapua Malayan Colleges Mindanao in Davao City.

The PACU General Assembly and National Conference 2023 offered a holistic experience, featuring workshops, a comprehensive business meeting, and an enlightening learning session facilitated by the esteemed international lecturer, Ms. Aileen Lim from the National University of Singapore. Ms. Lim, an authority in her field, guided attendees through the intricate landscape of active teaching and learning across diverse modalities. Her session illuminated pathways to innovative educational practices, inspiring all participants to embrace transformative approaches in their institutions.

For those present at CIT University, the event was not just a conference; it was a transformative learning experience. Attendees at our satellite venue engaged in spirited discussions, collaborated on novel ideas, and networked with peers and luminaries in the educational sphere. The conference served as a fertile ground for fruitful partnerships and collaborations, fostering a sense of unity and purpose among attendees.
