Science reflects, recharges, retools
As the Term 1 of the calendar year 2015-2016 commences in August, the pool of faculty of the College of Science is made ready spiritually, physically, and intellectually. With the theme, “Reflect. Recharge. Retool.” the College held its 2015 Faculty Development at Greenery, Baliwag, Bulacan on August 6-8, 2015. Fr. Enrico Gonzales, O.P. who has been with the University of Santo Tomas for two decades and who held administrative positions served as the recollection speaker. He specifically emphasized the need to pause from one’s busy schedule and take time to reflect and focus on one’s spiritual life.
The president of the Faculty Association of the College of Science (FACS), Prof. Cristina A. Binag, Ph.D. took charge of the team building activities that aim at strengthening the camaraderie among the teachers who belong to the same team, the Team Science. Sr. Angelina M. Julom of the Psychology Department, the team building facilitator, allowed the participants to know themselves more, discover their strengths and weaknesses, and get to be acquainted with the personality of their colleagues. This was made possible through enneagram, a personality assessment tool administered among the participants. A group activity that tests unity among teammates followed, with Dr. John Donnie A. Ramos and Ms. Fritzie Cristina Diaz composing the “Eagle-Fly” two-member team getting the championship title. These team building activities completed the day which started with a morning prayer and the Zumba led by Asst. Prof. Cecil I. Banag, Ph.D. and Asst. Prof. Mae Lowe L. Diesmos, M.Sc., respectively.
