National conference theme reiterated

For emphasis and gesture of commitment, AACCUP has reiterated the same theme as last year’s annual national conference. This time, the time element ’year 2’ is added, thereby making it,  "Internalizing Quality Assurance Systems in SUCs and Internationalizing the Accrediting Agency of Chartered Colleges and Universities in the Philippines (AACCUP), Inc.—Year 2". This only manifests AACCUP’s strong determination to pursue the implementation of the internalization of quality assurance system among SUCs and to further strengthen international linkages and partnerships with foreign quality assurance bodies.

For accessibility, AACCUP has also retained the same venue for this year’s conference. Century Park Hotel, in Malate, Manila provides easy access for the participants who will be coming from various locations all over the country.
