TAU honors Graduating Class 2020 with virtual celebration amid the pandemic
As the academic sector was in compromise when the pandemic paralyzed the world’s economy last mid-March, the Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) nationwide remain resilient as they honor this year’s batch of graduates amid the crisis.
With this year’s theme, “Leading Sustainable Development in the New Normal,” the Tarlac Agricultural University’s 74th Commencement Exercises celebrated the success of 932 graduates through a simultaneous livestreaming via TAU Facebook page and TAU official website at 6 PM of August 7.
When the national and local government units suspended the face-to-face classes in the middle of the second semester due to the implementation of the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) in Central Luzon, the TAU’s academic community raised the issues and predicaments they encountered amidst the crisis. With the strong call from the students regarding their lack of resources and capability in engaging to online classes, the TAU Academic Council released guidelines in adjusting the online classes to flexible learning so students could still complete their remaining requirements for the semester.
