CHED LIFTS MORATORIUM ON FIELD TRIPS, OFF-CAMPUS ACTIVITIES

 All Higher education institutions (HEIs) can once again send students out on field trips or other off-campus activities  following the lifting of its moratorium  the Commission on Higher Education (CHED).

 

In line with this, CHED Commissioner Prospero de Vera emphasized that higher education institutions should make sure  that they are accountable  when they send their students outside the university of colleges and that  “there should be  faculty or persons in charge that will monitor what the students are doing”.

 

On top of this,  students must also have their parents’ consent and must be medically cleared before going on an off-campus activity.

 

CHED’s lifting of the moratorium is good news to all departments in ICC which have subjects that require fieldtrips or off-campus activities.  And, with the Ecology class of Dr. Ray Vincent Araña already given the go signal, other departments will surely follow suit.
