For education in the midst of a pandemic, we believe nobody should be left behind.

We have worked for months to prepare to make “flexible learning” happen for the new school year. As we open a new semester, we would like everyone to be oriented with everything we are doing in the new normal.

Because of this, we invite the faculty and staff of the Visayas State University system to participate in this series of onboarding activities.

Most of these events will be live-streamed on our major platforms, and we will inform you ahead of time.

We are also building a centralized web page where you can find this information. For our students who chose the offline mode, the same materials will be available in print in the form of flyers and brochures.

Viscans, please block your schedule for these days in August. We look forward to seeing you in the Faculty and Student Onboarding events.
