MPSPC probe unveils as prexy bats for dialogue
by Harley Palangchao

A five-man team started its investigation on concerned officials, faculty staff members  and students and why various issues and concerns are hounding the operation and management of the Mountain Province State Polytechnic College (MPSPC). 
The team, led by former Commission on Higher Education Cordillera Director Freddie Bernal, stayed in the capital town of Bontoc from Wednesday to Thursday for validation of the complaints against the college president. 

The team likewise validated the complaints hurled by the school administration against the students and faculty members. It was not immediately known if the alleged politicking against MPSPC president Dr. Nieves Dacyon was part of the investigation. 

A source from MPSPC said the other members of the investigation or validation team were Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (PAASCU) representatives Edwin Fernandez, Marife Flores of CHED Regional Affairs Office, Florenda Cawaing and Arturo Bahuyan. 

The source added Dacyon was first in the list of concerned persons interviewed by the team. 

Blaine Bilalat, head of the MPSPC student grievance committee and one of those interviewed, said in a phone interview Friday that the investigation team asked him for documents, including possible pieces of evidence to substantiate the allegations against the MPSPC president. 

Other sources at MPSPC also revealed that no formal classes are being held at MPSPC since the start of the mass protest calling for the resignation of Dacyon last July 1.  

The MPSPC Board of Trustees did not accept Dacyon’s resignation. She earlier told reporters that  various issues were hurled against her since she assumed the presidency in 2005, but she said these have already been answered and clarified. 

In an apparent display of civility, Dacyon earlier asked the different sectors to allow her to meet them in a dialogue to explain the real situation, saying those against her presidency are just misinformed and a dialogue for her to clarify the allegations will settle the problems. 

The complaint accused Dacyon of being grossly insensitive to faculty benefits; unfair to personnel and delegates flawed work assignments; gross partiality or favoritism; harassment of personnel; utter lack of transparency, unfair procurement and inequitable distribution of supplies and office equipment and the alleged questionable designation of Dr. Nena Perez as Vice President for Academic Affairs. 

Latest information reaching journalists, meanwhile, revealed that Norberto Cue Sr., a member of the MPSPC Board of Trustees, filed his resignation in wake of the mass protests.
