As part of its 12th year anniversary celebration as a University, TUA is launching “TUGON TRINITIAN”, a university-wide relief campaign for the benefit of the families who were adversely affected by the recent Typhoon Ompong. In particular, the said relief campaign will focus on providing assistance to the communities of the four (4) dioceses of the Episcopal Church in the northern part of Luzon.
Through this relief program, TUA hopes to collect voluntary donations, in cash or in kind from the administrators, faculty, staff and students. The collection period shall run from September 20-26, 2018. All donations to be collected shall then be turned over to the National Office of the Episcopal Church on September 28, 2018.
In this connection, we appeal to your generous hearts to share whatever cash and/or goods you can give for this relief campaign.
Please channel your donation of goods (preferably rice, canned goods, cup noodles, blankets, mats, clothing items, toiletries, etc. ) to the Community Development Section (c/o Ms. Caroline L. Balmes, RSW). For cash donations, please fill up the attached form for proper monitoring/accounting purposes. (Source: Part of the Memo from TUA-OP)
Advancing its mission to embrace Whole-Person Education (WPE), top administrators of Trinity University of Asia (TUA) signified its intention to partner with Development Action for Women Network (DAWN).
DAWN was established in 1996 to help distressed Filipina workers in Japan and their Filipino-Japanese children in the promotion and protection of their welfare and rights.
A meeting between the two institutions was held last Aug. 22 at the Executive Conference Room to discuss the possibility of hosting Service-Learning activities for TUA students and joint activities with TUA’s partner universities in Japan.
Service-learning is a teaching pedagogy where students render services to partner communities and institutions to gain experiential learning, which is central to WPE.
Students taking up Psychology, Communication and Broadcasting, Information Technology, and Business are expected to benefit from the partnership, once sealed.
The university decided to steer its direction to WPE starting the current school year. – Trinity Observer
