Pointing towards attaining a higher level of accreditation, the University of San Agustin continues to thrive with its structural project plans and facilities as part of its strategic plans.

University President Rev. Fr. Frederick C. Comendador, O.S.A explained that the growing number of students each year enrolled in programs requiring laboratories and the need for additional

amenities must be prioritized for the institution to become presentable and conducive for learning.

“All the things that we do here are still grounded on the strategic plans of the University, (and) we want to be the best in the region and country,” said Comendador in an interview with The Augustinian.

Despite efforts to refurbish and restore, the university’s focus has temporarily shifted as a result of the COVID-19 epidemic. At a time when the school felt laboratories were sufficient, the matter was not given attention despite efforts to renovate and restore the buildings.

“But with the pandemic, we really shifted our focus to put more laboratories. Before the pandemic, there’s already a plan to put up a student center adjacent to the hotel. It was already approved by the board. When pandemic came, we have to shove that away as we have seen that it is not a priority,” said Comendador.
