CENTRAL LUZON STATE U STUDENT COUNCIL APPEALS FOR ACADEMIC ADJUSTMENTS
THE SUPREME Student Council of Central Luzon State University is calling for academic adjustments to accommodate students affected by Typhoon Ulysses.
In a letter addressed to the school administration, the body noted the high number of students whose families were ‘drastically affected’ by the typhoon after being evacuated from their homes.
Student Council President Edgar Orden said as a student leader, it is important to ensure the safety of his fellow students in times of crisis.
In lieu of this, the student body requested the adjustment of deadlines for all academic requirements, reschedule midterms, postponement of academic requirements and activities, and extension of deadlines.
While the group understands the university’s goal to give quality education, students at the same time, cannot ‘compromise their physical and mental health’.
The student body is asking for consideration given the current situation.
“We all are casualties of this typhoon and current pandemic. We are trying our best to live on the new normal. As a student leader, we are to amplify the students’ voices at the same time as understanding both sides, and hope the best for everyone,” said Orden in a letter.
CLSU hasn’t responded yet on the concern as of posting time.
