The Ateneo de Naga University brought home two national awards from the Search for Best Student Student Services Awarding Ceremony held last April 17, 2009 at the National Center for Public Administration and Governance Assembly Hall, University of the Philippines-Diliman, Quezon City.
Along with 13 other higher educational institutions, the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) recognized ADNU as one of the Philippines’ top schools and undisputedly Region 5’s best in the areas of student welfare, services and development programs. ADNU scored high ratings in the Search’s criteria: (1) National Relevance (vision, mission, goals of student services); (2) Student Welfare Program and Services, (3) Student Development Program and Services, and (4) Impact to Students.
The Ateneo Workshop on Ignatian leadership for Life (A-Will) was also awarded Best Student Leadership Program in the country. With Ignatian-rooted framework and program design for the formation and training of ADNU’s student organizations, this unique leadership program offers three parts throughout the school year: Summer A-Will which highlights basic leadership themes, Teambuilding for Student Leaders and Basic Facilitating Skills. The program has been considered by many student leaders and organizations as effective in equipping them with the necessary self-awareness, appropriate values, motivations and skills as they hurdle leadership and teambuilding challenges. The Office of Student Affairs (OSA) runs the program, with other Formation and Student Support Offices (FSSO) under the Deputy Academic Vice President for Formation (DAVPVF).
