Educative Goals of the College
Home Economics goes far beyond the mere teaching of how to do things. It examines the very reasons why things are the way they are, why these need to be transformed and how the restructuring can be done. The “how to” remains a hallmark of home economics. It is not to be minimized but instead emphasized based on a better understanding of the why’s and wherefore’s and alongside the development of new knowledge and improved skills and technologies.
Academic programs of CHE seek to mold the studentry towards academic excellence based on sound human values, imbue them with a deep sense of social responsibility and challenge them to help strengthen the foundation of the nation and transform our country into a better place to live in. To this end, the following educative goals were identified and unanimously approved by the faculty on April 22, 1992 and later validated by its student body. These educative goals were recently reviewed and expounded and approved on April 2016 to more concretely guide the college constituents of their implementation.
- Love of God
- Love of Country
- Belief in the Integral Role of the Family
- Ethical Behavior
Commitment to the effective and efficient use of human and non-human resources in the attainment of goals. It is the consistent disposition to apply effective planning, leadership, organizational, and controlling strategies on available resources to achieve objectives.
Management-mindedness is nurtured by actively seeking ways to maximize resources and promote sustainable consumption. It is demonstrated in the creative application of management strategies and techniques in one’s area of specialization and in daily life. Management-mindedness includes initiatives such as designing economical processes, conservation of resources, and exploring all possible alternatives for achieving goals.
- Pursuit of Excellence
Commitment to fulfil responsibilities to the best of one’s ability, setting increasingly challenging goals based on sound values and high standards. It involves the use of critical and creative thinking skills in performing academic and non-academic functions. Pursuit of excellence is promoted through exhibiting passion for life-long learning, demonstrating perseverance in overcoming challenges, and delivering exceptional outputs in accomplishing one’s activities, duties, and responsibilities.
- Social Responsibility
Dedication to serve one’s fellowmen, with preference for promoting the welfare of at-risk and/or vulnerable groups while advancing the common good. Social responsibility begins with the recognition of a community beyond self, kin and profession; and the understanding that one’s actions affect others. This goal is promoted through advocacies and community engagement that support individual, family, and societal development. It involves encouraging sustainable use of resources and safeguarding the environment. It is manifested by participating competently in finding solutions to societal problems. It is further demonstrated through proper planning and implementation of activities, duties and responsibilities, contributing positive outcomes to the social and natural environment.
