Our enthusiasm to continuously provide quality Marist education had been put to test many times, and one of our greatest distress this season was the quick shift of face to face classes to online learning. We have uncertainties, but we are never in doubt that we will survive. Indeed, we survived and are still surviving.
This pandemic taught us to be resilient and courageous. As Andre Gile said, “A man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.” We swam in the ocean of uncertainties and found an opportunity to discover strategic ways to supplement the learnings of the students.
We are delighted that our leaders, headed by then University President Br. Paterno S. Corpus, FMS, remained calm but determined to achieve the University’s goals and objectives despite the changes brought by the pandemic. NDDU community is more than grateful for his relentless service, thorough guidance and bravery that gave us the will to continue.
Making headway to welcome another school year, we are also blissful to open another chapter in the history of NDDU as we welcome our new president, Br. Manuel V. De Leon, FMS, an equally capable servant-leader who keeps an eye on his people crossing the ocean of apprehensions – a significant leap to a boundless maneuver!
WELCOME TO YOUR HOME, BR. MANUEL V. DE LEON, FMS.
WELCOME TO NDDU!
