A five-member delegation from the Abra State Institute of Sciences and Technology (ASIST) had a trip to Taiwan on February 17 – 22, 2019 for bench-marking purposes. The group visited the National Dong Hwa University (NDHU), the Chung Yuan Christian University (CYCU), and the National Kaohsiung University of Science and Technology(NKUST). And the delegation had a meeting with officials of the said universities. The meetings resulted in series of initial talks regarding possible collaborative researches, exchange of students, scholarships for both faculty and students, among others. It was agreed with the Taiwan university officials that they would just wait for correspondence and communications for possible agreements.

“What a great way to end 2018, and a great way to welcome 2019,” exclaimed the College President, Dr. Gregorio T. Turqueza, Jr. in his Closing Remarks of the Closing Program of the ISO 9001:2015 Stage 2 Certification Audit last December 27, 2018. The President’s expression came after Mr. Eugene B. Herradura, the Management System Auditor from the AJA Registrars, Inc., revealed that he will recommend the certification of the three frontline services of the ASIST, namely: the Guidance Office, the Library, and the Registrar’s Office.

Celebrating 110th years of educational excellence with its unique self-paced, ASIST has added another year of quality and holistic education with the theme ‘’Intensifying Program Quality through Enhanced Processes and Procedures towards ASIST University hood.’’  And what better way can we show our gratitude for the eleven decades of academic success than celebrating a thanksgiving mass attended by the ASISTians and led by no other than the Bishop of the Diocese of Bangued, Most Reverend Leopoldo C.  Jaucian SVD, D.D last December 18, 2018 hosted this year by the Bangued Campus.
