A professor from the College of Education of the Catanduanes State University (CatSU) won the three-corner contest to the presidency of the Universityโ€™s Federated Faculty Union (FFU) held on August 27, 2021 at the University gymnasium. Dr. Rosanna S. Abundo was elected President of the FFU, replacing former BOR member, Prof. Serelino Tasarra whose term has already been served. Dr. Abundo was formerly designated Dean of the Universityโ€™s College of Education. She was chosen by majority vote over her rivals, Prof. Arthur I. Tabirara from the College of Arts and Sciences, and Dr. Jimmy T. Masagca of the same College.
 
In winning the post, Dr. Abundo qualifies a seat representing the faculty and employees in the Universityโ€™s Board of Regents (BOR), its highest policy making body. With Dr. Abundo were the following elected officers as well composed of Engr. Ronnie B. Santelices, Vice-President; Prof. Ma. Luz A. Floralde, Secretary; Ma. Sofia M. Llaguno, Treasurer; Carlito Gelito, Auditor; Dr. Maria Isabel L. de la Hostria, as Mass Media Officer;  and Prof. Gregorio V. Angeles Jr., Busand Prof. Ramon S. Idanan, Business Managers.
 
Dr. Patrick Alain T. Azanza, SUC President III, inducted the newly elected officers at the CatSU Conference Room last August 30, 2021. The new set of officers is expectedly the voice of the faculty and employeesโ€™ ranks in the Board. โ€œI am so glad that the faculty just concluded a clean and honest electoral process that shall provide them independent and democratic representation in the University,โ€ the President was quoted as saying just after the elections. Dr. Azanza added that the result of the elections is necessary in stepping up on-going institutional reforms in the University under his leadership. He said that the new officers under Dr. Abundoโ€™s fold in the FFU, is expected to consult their constituents from time to time in order to safeguard their own interests and welfare as government workers. โ€œI hope that they shall always consult and listen to their constituents so that we can be assured that the faculty and staff are heard and are truly represented this time around", Dr. Azanza said. The President likewise expressed hopes that the new FFU leadership under Dr. Abundo would be partners in โ€œtrumping out the desperate remnants of the (alleged) corrupt few who lorded over the University, and brought it to a dismal state.โ€
 
Consistent with the CatSU presidentโ€™s policy for Shared Governance, the new Faculty Regent and FFU Officers shall be provided a Faculty and Employeeโ€™s Desk (FED) inside the Office of the President, similar to the Studentsโ€™ Desk (SD) earlier provided to the Student Sector by CatSU Pres. Azanza. This means that the faculty, employees and students can readily secure CatSU information, financial records, and have direct access to the President and all offices in the University, as the current administration espouses Transparency, Integrity and Accountability.
 
โ€œAn sakuyang PAGLAOM (my hope) is that the democratic election of this new set of FFU officers shall serve as the coup de grace that will give a final blow to the corrupt practices, the creeping lies, misinformation, and selfish interests that have plagued the University,โ€ Dr. Azanza said. โ€œNo longer shall it be allowed under my administration, as the ballots have spoken and clearly sent a message to the University community: Enough!โ€ as the President reiterated. #ESV
