Office of Student Affairs

Office of Student Affairs

The Office of Student Affairs is directly under the Office of the President. As an effective partner of the academic units in the learning process of students, it shall guide the latter and their organizations in pursuing endeavors enhancing their physical, social/ recreational, cultural, literacy and educational growth and development, and shall formulate policies and guidelines on non-academic matters to student services and student related activities consistent with law, the school’s goals/objectives and policies, but subject to the approval of the President and in appropriate cases, of the Board of Regents of the University.

Objectives and Functions

Towards these ends, the OSA shall perform the following functions:

  • To maintain an effective coordinating mechanism with both the academic and non-academic offices/ units of the University.
  • To promulgate such rules and regulations as may be necessary to carry out the objective and policies of the University on co-curricular programs and on student organizations in campus.
  • To supervise the elections of the Cultural Student Government and various council officers.
  • To encourage the formation of student groups that pursue clearly the common objectives, as well as assist them in enhancing their personal well-being.
  • To ensure that the objective and activities of the various organizations are in accord with University goals and existing rules and regulations.
  • Develop the human potentials and resources of the students in managing themselves as individuals or as members of groups/organizations.

Plans and Tentative Programs

A vital factor that determines the relative success and achievements of an academic institution is its students. If an institution must aspire for a position of prominence in the field of education, it is imperative upon itself to turn out quality students who are, in effect, the living advertisement of the kind of institution that it is. But quality students mean quality service-both in the academic and non-academic components of a student’s life. While the academic is the school’s primordial concern, a student’s full educational development could not be without the non-academic.

In schools, the direction and supervision of the non-academic activities and services fall squarely on the Office of the Student Affairs. Hence, the office, as an effective partner of the academic units in the learning process of students, shall guide the latter and their organizations in pursuing endeavors that shall enhance their physical, social/recreational, cultural, literacy and educational well-being.

The Library of the Manuel L. Quezon University had its beginning in the law library that was organized by Nicias Mendoza, a third year law student, under the able guidance of Dr. Augusto Iturralde, one of the law professors who established the MLQ School of Law on November 1, 1947.

The very impressive records of the new law school in the bar examinations shortly after its establishment resulted in the tremendous increase in its enrollment. Clearly, there was a need to expand its facilities and this was realized in 1948 when the school, including the library, was transferred to the Rita Legarda Building on R. Hidalgo St. in Quiapo. In 1966, the School of Law occupied its own building in a compound along Arlegui St., also in Quiapo.

To provide an extensive research and reading room for the school's growing population, the Library was organized when the first and second floors of a proposed four-storey building was completed. These two floors originally housed the Filipiniana, Reference, Periodicals and the Technical Sections. It was renamed the Justice Arsenio P. Dizon Research Center in February 19, 1992 in honor of the University's second president.

Aimed at providing its constituents with a state-of-the-art research facilities, the building has been renovated starting with restoration of the third floor, redesigning of the facade, construction of a Multimedia Room and repainting of the interior portion.

Today, all the services of the library is centralized in this building. It has sections for the Circulation, Reserve, Filipiniana, Reference, Periodicals, Rare Books collection, and the Technical Services. The University Memorabilia and Archives are also maintained in the center. A special area is assigned to serve as laboratory for library science classes.

The Multimedia Center is equipped with software designed to supplement classroom learning. Workstations are available for full access to CD-ROMs with readers, printers, and scanners. Internet facilities are open to researchers who may wish to surf the World Wide Web, download files or communicate through e-mail. Books and other library materials are regularly updated and enriched, either in printed or electronic formats. A Library Committee has been created to evaluate all publications and electronic sources before they are approved for purchased.

Campus Ministry belongs to one of the sectors of the Ministry for Youth Affairs (MYA), a ministry that aims to develop the young people to come the heart and mind of God in the world.

Initially, its purpose was to bring to educational institutions the vision and values of Christian living. Recently, as we move on to the Third Millennium and in line with the changing context of our Filipino society, Campus Ministry opts to take an active role in the transformation of our society through the building of faith-communities on campus.
