TAU celebrates 5th Charter Day
A virtual celebration with the theme Reimagining International Visibility through Sustainable Inclusive Partnerships marked the five years to the day since the former Tarlac College of Agriculture (TCA) was converted into Tarlac Agricultural University on May 10, 2016 by virtue of Republic Act No. 10800.
The celebration commenced at 8:30 AM with an Ecumenical Service which was immediately followed by the audio-visual presentation of TAU’s recent and major accomplishments in instruction, research, extension and internationalization. The said accomplishments include accomplishments in free-range chicken and sweet potato production and establishment of TAU Smart Agriculture Center for research; virtual inbound and outbound mobility programs for both faculty and students and project-based learning and immersion for instruction; initiatives like webinars and technical supports through various digital platforms for extension; and recognitions for internationalization.
TAU conducts cultural and wellness activities for int’l students
In this time of pandemic, many of our students are having a difficult time finding opportunities to be involved in activities that can help them improve not only their physical but also their mental health. This challenge is even more experienced by international students who are not only coping with homesickness but are also dealing with limitations in terms of resources, movement, and connections within the community.
International students play a vital role in building a diverse and more vibrant atmosphere in Tarlac Agricultural University as they bring cultural, political, and historical perspectives to students and faculty members in our campus community. In lieu of this, the Office of Student Services Development (OSSD), through its Student Welfare Unit and the Student Inclusion Services, conducted a series of workshops and activities for the entire month of February dedicated to the holistic development of our international students who are housed within the campus.
