The 44th year of life and mission of the Divine Word College of Urdaneta witnessed the culmination of the Silver Jubilee Celebration of the founding of the Diocese under the Most Rev. Jacinto A. Jose, DD. The Diocese of Urdaneta is the local church of which this institution finds its locus of mission. In one of the visits of the bishop this year he expressed his deep gratitude to the DWCU academic community as he gave emphasis on the role of this only Catholic institution of higher learning in Eastern Pangasinan being Witness to the Word and vanguard of Catholic faith and her teachings. The DWCU contributed much to the formation of the youth and molding the present and future leaders of Eastern Pangasinan and its neighboring places.
As the DWCU closes the academic year 2010-2011 and the triennium 2008-2011 the administrators prepared this Annual Executive report on the highlights and accomplishments of the different offices and functions of the institution. The administrators followed the same format that we started in 2008. The executive reports then covering the triennium will be bound into one as a precedence of the following terms hereafter.
Closing this term, I wish to express my deep appreciation and gratitude to the Board of Trustees and the SVD-PHN confreres for giving me the privilege of serving the DWCU for the last three years. The same gratitude goes to all the members of the Administrative and the Campus Pastoral Councils for their full support to the programs making the plans and the dreams come into reality. The roster list of faculty and non-academic personnel made the DWCU reach the place where she is now amidst trials and challenges. The very supportive PTA executive officers with the commendable impetus that the Alumni Association’s Officers displayed through the years inspired me and the whole academic community to pursue the positive development that this institution is undergoing. To: all Divinians, our friends and benefactors …my heartfelt gratitude for the honor and privilege of journeying with you through these past memorable, fruitful and meaningful three years.
Indeed, you made a difference in my life and mission and I am forever grateful.
Gratefully in the Divine Word,
Fr. Dominador O. Ramos, SVD
