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

Trinity University of Asia is ISO 9001:2015 certified effective July 4, 2018. The recertification comes after Trinity was audited by SGS Philippines and was recommended for certification. Trinity has been ISO 9001 certified since 2009 and has since transitioned to the ISO 9001: 2015 standards. The certification covers the provisions of basic, tertiary and graduate education. The transition to the new management system standards refocused the QMS of Trinity and further enhanced its capabilities in providing educational services of distinct quality.
Audits conducted prior to the certification aimed to validate the actions taken by the University in the maintenance and implementation of a Quality Management System (QMS). The university transitioned to the use of the new management system standard before the deadline set in September 2018. In preparation for this, Top management scheduled all the retooling and training requirements for the faculty, staff, and administrators. The training includes; ISO 9001:2015 Transition Course, Risk-Based Thinking Awareness Course, and Internal Audit Course.
