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
Devotion to a Supreme Being who governs the universe of which we are a part. It is characterized by truth, righteousness, respect, and concern for the well-being of one’s fellowmen and the rest of creation.  It is lived by honoring God, demonstrating compassion towards others, and caring for nature.
  • Love of Country
Devotion to one’s country. It is the purposeful demonstration of love for one’s people and land. This devotion is advanced through deliberate efforts to learn about the country, respect for and pride in its socio-cultural heritage, and understanding its present state. It is manifested through concern for the welfare of others, development of one’s expertise in service of the country, and involvement in endeavors that support sustainable national and global development.
  • Belief in the Integral Role of the Family
Recognition of the essential function of the family in the holistic development of individuals and in the sustainable growth of the country.  It involves continuing dedication to nurturing family members, strengthening their solidarity and empowering them to be effective contributors to the community. This belief is promoted by advocating for the preservation and protection of the family and its role in satisfying material and relational needs, in building character and transmitting culture and values.
  • Ethical Behavior
Conducting oneself in accordance to values and standards consistent with moral principles to live a virtuous life. It involves the demonstration of fair and honest practices in personal, academic, and professional activities. Ethical behavior is developed by relentlessly pursuing fairness and respecting equal rights of individuals. It is expressed in obeying codes of conduct in the home, in school, at work and in the community. It is instrumental in uplifting the morale of individuals and promoting effective teamwork.
  • Management-Mindedness

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.
