CvSU gears towards ISO certification
This 2018 marks the start of the University’s ISO journey in providing better services to its stakeholders as it establishes a Quality Management System (QMS) for instruction, research, extension, management and support services in its main campus in Indang, Cavite.
With consultancy services from the Development Academy of the Philippines, the University aims to enrich the CvSU community’s understanding and appreciation of principles and requirements of ISO 9001:2015 QMS; develop the capabilities of key officers and staff in preparing for and sustaining the ISO 9001:2015 certification; and prepare the documentation and implementation requirements for the certification of CvSU QMS and for maintaining and sustaining the established QMS.
Supervised by the University President, Dr. Hernando Robles, an ISO Core Team was created to lead the University in its goal of being ISO certified. The said core team includes: Dr. Leyma L. Cero, VP for Planning and Development; Dr. Camilo A. Polinga, VP for Academic Affairs; Dr. Henry O. Garcia, VP for Administrative and Support Services; Dr. Ruel M.
