The selection of student delegates is based on their qualifications, performance and interview.
The SO, in cooperation with the Guidance Services Unit, sponsors leadership and skill enhancement trainings for faculty advisers and leaders in school campus organization advising, organizational development, planning and implementation of the different activities of student organizations toward the attainment of the University goals in particular and the community in general.
