Message from the President Emeritus
TODAY is a NEW DAY for PCCR.
The focus on academic excellence has started with the creation of the College of Criminal Justice. Our vision is to offer more allied courses related to Criminology, like the Bachelors in Forensic Science and the Bachelors in Industrial Security Management.
We will not be limited to the Criminology discipline only. We will branch out and offer other fields of study. Expect more courses in the coming years.
Our student-centered approach will be evident in the reorganization of our Student Affairs department. Matters affecting student discipline and behavior are now within the ambit of Student Affairs and Services. Their goal is to improve students’ lives and student retention.
Strengthening our alumni relations will be the objective of the newly created Office of Alumni Affairs and Industry Linkages.
Management of our school operations will now be under the Office of the Executive Vice President, whose department shall be instrumental in guiding the different units and managing the day-to-day operations of our institution.
A vibrant, involved, and active Executive Committee members are our Board of Trustees, who will work together and focus on decision-making, policy-making, and long-term goals– a first in the history of PCCR.
Our success depends on what we will do every day. But the road ahead will not be easy. Everyone wants change, but real change needs to come from every one of us. Let’s work towards our mission of bringing change and global competitiveness to PCCR.
Let us move as one unit. With a singular goal. With one mission. To bring back the glory that was rightfully ours. The Philippine College of Criminology: The Pioneer and Leader in Criminal Justice.
Our faith in the Lord that He will watch over us and protect us during this pandemic shall guide us towards the achievement of our mission.
Let us work as One Team.
Go Team PCCR!
Teamwork Makes the Dream Work!
Mr. Rodolfo Valentino F. Bautista
President Emeritus, PCCR
Message from the Executive Vice President
The Philippine College of Criminology today is at an important crossroads in its rich history of quality criminology education. A new leadership welcomed 2021 and it lit the fire of hope that change is on its way.
Indeed, change is on its way with Innovation and Transformation as the main drivers of the new PCCR.
The Digital Transformation of the new PCCR is another innovation spearheaded by the Executive Committee. Dubbed as Project New Day, the digital transformation of PCCR is a project that is expected to bring efficiencies in service delivery to students and employees.
New enrollment and financial application systems are expected to be in place before the start of the new school year. This system will allow for fast, accurate, and efficient enrollment and payment transactions, anytime, anywhere from any device.
Content digitization and a new Learning Management System will be in place this coming semester. These projects will improve instructional delivery and create an exciting learning environment for students and teachers. Engaged and participative learning will be its major learning goal.
The Digital Educators Training is seen as an important step in ensuring the faculty are prepared for this learning transformation. Faculty training starts this May and will be conducted by learning experts.
An HR Information System is also part of Project New Day. A highly interactive and intelligent system that will allow for efficient employee transactions from payroll, leave management, and other HR-related activities.
The ERP system will run the financial side of Project New Day. This part ensures that we can stay on top of our financial activities and allows us to make critical financial decisions with accurate and relevant information.
Aside from the Project New Day, all Organizational Heads are also preparing their plans to improve the effectiveness of student and employee services, improve board performance, be a center of excellence in criminology, improve our graduates’ employability and create a vibrant and thriving alumni community.
Expect new college courses and new SHS Tracks and Strands starting the school year 2022-2023 as PCCR expands its products and services.
The excitement, the energy, and the passion are all around us as we prepare for the new PCCR.
Let us all work together and move forward with a new PCCR.
Karim L. Bangcola
Executive Vice President
Motivating people to accomplish a common goal is not enough to be a great leader. We strive to be transformational leaders who must be inspiring and encouraging while leading by example.
There is a fine line between achieving good and achieving greatness. Excellence is declaring that mediocrity is not satisfying enough and that being the best in everything is always the goal, no matter what it takes.
Taking ownership for one’s actions and decisions is never easy but is a courageous act of taking responsibility despite what the consequences may be.
Is simply doing what you normally do not want or like to do but you do it anyway to the best of your abilities because it is called for.
The ability to emotionally understand what other people feel, see things from their point of view, and imagine yourself in their place. Not being quick to judge but to think first of the other person and what they are going through.
Showing honor and care about another’s thoughts and feelings. It is the acceptance and understanding of another person’s views and decisions and co-existing peacefully with those differences despite disagreements.
Recognizing that others may have needs and making oneself available to service those needs even when it is not expected or expressed. The service is given free will and nothing is expected in return.
Openness to correction, acceptance, and an unboastful countenance as we relate with others around us. It is a self awareness that others may know more than us and we can learn from them.
Comes from the root word “integer” which means one. Integrity means you are one and the same person in any situation and will make the same decisions even when no one else sees you. It is honesty and moral uprightness at any time and in any situation.
Unwavering desire to achieve a purpose or objective and not giving up until the goal is achieved finding creative and out of the box solutions to reaching the finish line.
