Message to the Community
Malayan Colleges Mindanao (A Mapúa School) is continuously pursuant in its efforts of updating the community on its policies and precautionary measures concerning the recent viral pandemic that is the Coronavirus Disease 2019 or COVID-2019.
“To the community of the Mapua schools,
Amidst the torrent of issuances, advisories and social media posts about COVID-19, I wish to send a singular message of oneness amongst ourselves and with the larger communities of which we are a part – the Filipino people and indeed humanity. It could have happened under better circumstances, but the current situation has made us acutely feel this sense of belongingness as, perhaps, never before.
We are now in the thick of a very global and yet very local public health battle that can be won only with common resolve and unified action. As in any battle, drastic or even draconian actions may have to be taken to stem the tide against the adversary. Such actions will inevitably involve much difficulty and even sacrifice on our part. But our part we must do.
In the unaccustomed distance between each of us that we now find ourselves in, we have to find new ways to continue to operate to achieve our customary tasks. We are fortunate perhaps that we have earlier put in place the online tools that can dispel such distance. We must now maximize its use for the academic and administrative tasks that need to be carried out. This attempt to carry on despite the circumstances – keeping a part, small though it may be, of the socio-economic life of our nation humming – constitutes a major contribution to the fight.
I wish to thank our students, faculty members, administrative staff, alumni, officers and trustees who are doing their best to help our Mapua schools cope with the situation.
I wish that we can all pull together, as one Mapua community, to make the personal situation of each and everyone of us as safe, and as less fraught with difficulties, as possible.
I wish that we can continue to support the bigger effort to win this battle against a global pandemic whose face we have now seen up close. Together, we shall overcome!
Ingat po tayong lahat!”
— Dr. Reynaldo B. Vea, President & CEO of Mapúa University and Malayan Colleges Mindanao
“We are in a crisis! Now more than ever, our paramount concern is the well-being of our students and personnel. We have taken unprecedented measures to protect our students and personnel while upholding academic continuity during this novel, worldwide crisis. We are privileged enough of having the foundation to do remote work and learning, and both the capability and the will to upscale these to a level that would allow us to continue to fulfill our mission as a learning institution despite the situation.
We ask for your continued patience and understanding as we tread our way away from this crisis. I encourage everyone to foster solidarity and demonstrate empathy by constantly helping one another and by aiming for the greater good. Our communication lines will remain open for all the members of the MCM community who are in need of assistance.
I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to our students, the parents, our faculty, and staff for being one with us in taking steps to prevent the spread of these corona virus disease. May we continue to rely on each other for support in this time of crisis and in navigating the difficult circumstances.
Let us keep on working hand in hand towards overcoming the threat of COVID-19.”
— Engr. Dodjie S. Maestrecampo, EVP-COO of Malayan Colleges Mindanao
