New college dean meets criticisms from students
NAME WITHHELD

I am a nursing student in one of the universities here in La Trinidad, Benguet. Two weeks ago, a new dean was appointed because the previous dean is retiring. A lot of us were surprised because we didn’t think he’s supposed to be the next dean.

He became the dean, as the clinical instructors voted him upon. It is sad that the person with the best credentials to be dean was outnumbered by the supposed “lousy” instructors. I think there is something wrong in the system of appointing a new dean.

Was credentials ignored in the selection process? Does the school president have a say on this matter, or even the students?

Our college is being run by a dean who does not know how to teach and burden the students with lots of researches. Also, the new clinical coordinator does not know what she’s doing compared to the previous coordinator, who regularly coordinates with students concerned through social media for us to complete our requirements.

With the new dean at helm, the non-performing instructors are outnumbering some of our best instructors while one of them is reportedly transferring to another institution.

We hope that the school management will review the appointment of the new dean.
