Welcome Message from the ETEEAP Director

Dear ETEEAP Students,

Warmest welcome to the academic year 2021-2022! 

It is an honor and with great pleasure that I welcome you to the ETEEAP of San Sebastian College- Recoletos, Manila for the academic year 2021-2022.

The SSC-R Manila campus is open for virtual and onsite business transactions but face-to-face classes are still not permitted. Amidst this pandemic, the whole SSC-R community is ever-ready to welcome all students for this academic year. The SSC-R Manila ETEEAP family is here to support you every step of way in your academic journey and career development. We remain focused on empowering and inspiring you to achieve excellence and to continuously provide you the pathways for academic success. This academic year 2021-2022, fully take advantage of every opportunity to develop yourself and fulfill your dream to earn a college degree. This includes the lined-up virtual academic, spiritual, religious, outreach development programs, and services available to you our dear ETEEAP students.

For this academic year, the ETEEAP Center is guided by the theme: “Valuing Every ETEEAP Moment, the Recollect Sebastinian Way.” Indeed, nothing should stop you from achieving success in any way you choose to define it. We always treasure and value your every start to finish endeavors, sweat, beating deadlines, submission of outputs, rigorous research works, etc. Since the SSC-R Manila ETEEAP’s foundation in 2012, I always keep my head high to you that while studying in the ETEEAP you are raising your own family and working full-time in the top and middle management positions of your company. 

The COVID-19 pandemic is top of our mind at SSC-R Manila. Rest assured that we are monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely and have constantly updated our policies and procedures to fit the ETEEAP online teaching-learning process and the implementation of the different programs and services. The health and safety of our administrators, faculty experts, staff members, and students are also our top priority. We strongly encourage all of you and your family members to receive the COVID-19 vaccine and to stay safe and healthy as the best ways to protect ourselves and other members of the community.

I look forward to meeting you during our regular virtual consultations and sessions, where you will have the opportunity to share feedback and ideas about your ETEEAP experience at SSC-R Manila.  My personal goal is to journey with you the Recollect and Sebastinian way of “treasuring and valuing your every moment” with ETEEAP students, faculty experts, panel of assessors, editors, staff members, and school Administrators.
