In a remarkable moment of pride for Abra State Institute of Sciences and Technology (ASIST), the institution has been honored with the prestigious accolade of a Top 201-300 University Ranking at the World's Universities with Real Impact (WURI) Awards. This recognition was bestowed by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) in a spectacular event held at the Philippine International Convention Center in Pasay City on October 6, 2023. The award was received by ASIST's esteemed Quality Assurance Director, Dr. Christopher John R. Llanda, who stood as a symbol of excellence in higher education.

The pursuit of excellence in higher education is an endeavor that requires unwavering dedication and constant self-assessment. From September 25 to September 29, 2023, Abra State Institute of Sciences and Technology (ASIST) took a significant step in this journey, as it subjected nine of its academic programs to rigorous evaluation by the Accrediting Agency of Chartered Colleges and Universities in the Philippines (AACCUP). The results of this accreditation visit serve as a testament to ASIST's commitment to providing high-quality education to its students.
