Our Philosophy

The University is fully committed to efficient time management skills which are critical for students and lecturers alike in teaching and learning processes. Allocating realistic amount of time means effective learning for student and effective teaching for lecturers. How an institution defines time expectations for student, lectures, administrations, and other professional staff can establish the basis for high performances for all. Time on task will be a principle that applies to all person within, and all components of, an institution. The university will therefore consider student time on task (learning), lecturer time on task (teaching), and institutional time on task (devoted to teaching and learning). Student typically will have heavy course-hour requirement, and the University will expect a tremendous amount of work outside class in preparation for each hour.
