Manila – Adamson University, hailed as the 5th Top Philippine Universities by QS Asia University Rankings 2024, will celebrate its 92nd Foundation Anniversary with weeklong festivities revolving around the theme of “Vincentian Education in the Age of Artificial Intelligence” from February 11-17, 2024.
Aligning with the National Roadmap for Artificial Intelligence (AI), Adamson University is embracing the rapid changes in Higher Education, most specially the need to increase AI competencies of faculty and to update curricula to include AI courses, as well as developing an AI policy as an educational institution.
“As the pioneer in technical and industrial education in the country, we want our students to be work-ready when they enter the workforce,” declares Dean Ruben Nayve of the Adamson University College of Business Administration, who heads the Foundation Week Committee.
“Starting the conversation right now on AI through some of the activities such as the Field Demo, On-the-Spot Writing Contest, and the Cluster Booth Activities will make AI accessible and not intimidating,” continues Dean Nayve. Other activities lined up throughout the week will be the 1st Vincentian Quiz Bee, Research Colloquium Poster and Paper Presentation, Canticle Choralfest, Araw ng Parangal and the Grand Alumni Homecoming.
Founded in 1932, Adamson University has served as one of the gateways of Philippine
Industrialization, providing world-class Catholic Education at an affordable price. “It has been said that Education is a great equalizer because it is the best way out of poverty,” exclaims newlyinstalled Adamson University President Daniel Franklin E. Pilario, CM. “Artificial Intelligence can also be seen as a levelling force in society because through the proper use of this technological advancement, the world will finally be able to solve the problems of poverty, homelessness, and hunger,” declares Fr. Pilario.
The Adamson Foundation Week will also be an opportunity to celebrate the “Klasmeyt Culture,” which is distinctly unique to AdU. Inspired by the teachings of St. Vincent De Paul, it embodies the spirit of charity and inclusivity, creating a sense of belonging to students, faculty, staff, and everyone
whose lives have been touched by someone connected to Adamson University. For more information about Adamson University’s 92nd Anniversary Foundation Week Activities, QS Asia Ranking 2024, and its unique Klasmeyt Culture, please visit https://www.adamson.edu.ph/
