A Culture of Innovation
By Enderun Colleges’ Student Government President Joey Tuason
At Enderun we’ve been having a nagging problem, building unity among our students, across programs, across years. The previous Student Government came up with a novel idea, a day and overnight festivity, with fun and games and great eats all throughout. We called it Camp Us.
From many perspectives, it was a success and a fairly good solution to creating a Student Life where unity, fraternity and bonding can thrive. For we could see that students across all batches engaged with each other and made friends. For one entire night, Enderun felt incredibly united.
However, we can’t have Camp Us every night. And although events like Camp Us and Titans Week help bring the school together, the truth of the matter is, events alone will not solve the root problem. Events should showcase that we are united, they should not be the stepping stone of the Student Body to get there.
Here’s what I want to propose on behalf of the Student Government: we are united, it is just hard to see. It is difficult to see how our actions, words, ideas, talents, and skills affect one another.
This fact is what we would like to continuously reveal to everyone, and implementing a system that makes this visible is what we are looking to create.
Simply put, we want to create a culture of innovation, and this will unfold as we empower students to become problem solvers themselves.
Turning problems in and out of school into opportunities for projects, events, products, and more, while tapping into our talents and skills, will transform the identity of the Enderun Student.
By the time our term ends, we want Enderun to be known as the most innovative school in the country. And the most beautiful part of that vision, is that everyone will be involved, and everyone will see their role in making this possible.
