Stakeholders’ Level of Awareness and Acceptability of the College’s Objectives and the University’s Mission and Vision
The study aimed to document the level of awareness and acceptability of the stakeholders to the vision and mission of the university and the objectives of the College of Computer Studies (CCS). This study has 320 stakeholders from three programs of the CCS who responded to the adapted survey questionnaire distributed conveniently via Google Forms and distributed through emails and social media platforms like Facebook Messenger. The basic statistical tools, Spearman rho, and Wilcoxon signed rank test were used to interpret and analyze the data gathered. The results found that the students and alumni of the three programs are fully aware of and accept the university's vision, mission, and college objectives, while parents and administrators are not. Also, the respondents' demographic profiles have no significant relationship to the level of awareness of the university’s vision, mission, and college objectives. Furthermore, in terms of stakeholder acceptability, CCS students accept the university's vision, mission, and college objectives across all programs. According to the relationship between the types of respondents on acceptance of the mission, vision, and objectives, BSIS and BSCS are the programs that have a significant relationship in terms of acceptance of the mission, vision, and objectives. It is concluded that it is important to involve all the students in drafting and revising the mission, vision, and objectives. The administrator should continue developing strategies for the awareness of the parents and administrators of the Mission, Vision, and Objectives to improve their acceptance. Furthermore, it is recommended to dig deeper into determining the relationship between awareness and acceptance of VMGO by college students.
