To keep pace with the bastion of change and make students abreast of the relevant information, guidelines and policies of Pangasinan State University, concerned academic officials from the teaching and non-teaching Divisions as well as student representatives, came together to present brainstormed ideas for the updated version of the Student Handbook.
The 2023 edition of the Student Handbook comes in handy as PSUnians navigate through their college life inside and outside the Campus. It serves as a guide to help them understand the many opportunities and services that are made available to assist them.
The Office of the Vice-President for Academic and Student Affairs headed by Dr. Manolito C. Manuel, said the revised edition presents articles, sections and subsections for easy references and are substantiated with appendices that specifically address the complexities of pandemic and post-pandemic mode of learning.
Focal persons for all the 15 Articles of the academic programs, preliminaries and appendices presented the revisions and suggestions to make the Handbook relevant to the times.
Prof. Celeste Mercado, the Director for Student and Alumni Affairs, said the original Handbook was published in 2016. Another group came up with a revision in 2019 but the pandemic stalled the publication. Thus, it was thoroughly updated for the 2023 publication.
The revised edition is expected to be out before the start of Academic Year 2023-2024.
