Learning of human being goes on in accordance with the laws of life. Improvement in teaching and learning can scarcely be made without a careful recognition of principles upon which to base any valuable program for betterment of students.
An academic program is an attempt to state the more fundamental conditions favorable to the learning process. The program is designed to make learning a continuous process of development when properly handled and controlled. It should function effectively as a handmade of education that is aimed at the development of the whole person.
The program on academic consultation functions as an organized school activity closely related to the general education program in any subject such as English, Mathematics, Sciences and other courses. The program must disclose students’ academic needs and possibilities. It is the premise of the program to assist student to decide where he wants to go, what he wants to do, how he can best accomplish his purpose and to assist him solve his difficulties that arise from his academic life.
Nature of the Program
While education may be learned through direct instruction, it is believed that it can be more effectively become meaningful if it is given direct emphasis. Education can be an integral part on the life of students if it is done with concern and direct guidance of responsible professionals.
The program Academic Consultation is an intensive service that paves the way for the realization of long-sought goal of the CLAS department. The program is one of the immediate responses to the needs of the students. It serves as a springboard for the planning of other assistance programs which facilitate the growing academic needs of students.
Since one prominent movement in education is the attempt to meet, as often as possible, the interests, abilities, and needs of every student, therefore, the program deals not only to students with academic difficulties but also those students who have above average/average performance.
To assist students in their academic difficulties and/ or progress in all areas of learning.
To provide additional learning tools to meet the specific learning needs of students in relation to their difficulties or in any subject area.
To strengthen positive learning relationship between the student and the teacher.
To minimize student failures and drop - outs.
The teacher must keep in mind that every student should be directed and guided in any variety of learning situations; therefore, the target clientele are all students who have academic difficulties in different subject areas. It includes those students who have difficulties in the use of sentence and grammatical patterns in writing their thesis. Student-athletes who have problem in submitting the requirements assigned by their teachers and those who are doing well/ progressing academically but need academic consultation are also considered.
The program starts on the third week after the opening of classes and ends a week before the final examination. Each faculty has his own specific time of schedule. It will be during his free time; however, the faculty has to consider the availability of students for consultation.
The Conference Room at the CLAS faculty room is the venues for the implementation of the program. The faculty can provide hisown venue as long as it is within the school premises.

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences offers a total of 11 programs, not to mention its provision of curricular service to the collegiate departments’ general education course requirements in information technology, mathematics, physical education, psychology, the “hard” sciences, the social sciences, as well as the Civil Welfare Service-National Service Training Program.
At a closer look we can say, with modesty besides, that able and competent faculty members in the CLAS are in the frontline of the cornerstones of a higher educational institution like the Colegio de San Juan de Letran in Intramuros, Manila; and that they are ever present in the academic life of all the students.
For an HEI like CSJL, we all work hard to fulfill our obligations in instruction, research, and community service. Therefore, the CLAS faculty members are in constant professional and personal development – some have earned post-graduate and graduate degrees while many are currently enrolled in programs aligned with their areas of assignment or fields of expertise.
Moreover, some of them have research loads in that aside from their classroom duties they conduct studies, which are relevant to their areas or institutes, and these include instructional manuals or modules for the use of both faculty and the students in their course work. They are supported, including financially, by the Letran Research Center, which offers attractive packages for research endeavors.
True to its beginnings as a school set up for orphans, and respecting a tradition of social responsibility, CSJL has partnered with secondary schools, among others, for community service learning. These partner-communities are served by the CLAS, each according to its needs, such as computer literacy, physical fitness, and the like.
Back at the home-front, so to speak, the curricula of the 11 programs (which now include Food Technology and Nutrition and Dietetics) are updated regularly while the syllabi of all courses are likewise reorganized on a semester basis, after a thorough review which involves also faculty members and alumni, and provided to the students for their academic guidance subsequently – all this through the guidance of the Academic Affairs department and, ultimately, the Rector and President.
We always have the students’ interests in mind; hence we provide them with what we believe they can use of when they graduate and seek employment or start their own businesses. As we often tell them when they are yet first year students, “we may not be your first choice, but we are your best choice.”
