This study aims to evaluate the programs of the Religious Studies Department, and two units within De La Salle University, the Campus Ministry, and the Center for Social Concern and Action (COSCA) based on the University's Mission Statement. The descriptive-evaluative approach of analysis uses Stufflebeam's mode of evaluation, namely: Context Evaluation, Input Evaluation, Process Evaluation, and Product Evaluation. Using the random cluster sampling procedure, 244 students graduating in the first term of SY 1990-1991, and 403 freshmen students during the same term, responded to the questionnaire developed by the author dealing with Program Aims, Program Methods, and Information on Lasallian values. In addition, 23 students involved in the Peer Ministry and Volunteer Formation Program were likewise included among the respondents. All members of the faculty and administrators of the three programs, numbering to 25, were also included in the survey, but only 19 responded.
The results of the study revealed the following: 1) The aims of the three programs under evaluation conform to the University's Mission Statement. 2) The aims of the three programs conform to the perceived notions of the respondents as to what the three programs should aim at. 3) Aside from the stated aims of the three programs, respondents mention other objectives that the three programs should include in its stated aims. 4) Respondents consider their faculty as having mastery of the subject matter, confidence in their teaching ability, willingness to help in molding the character of their students, and are approachable. 5) However, respondents consider the following as desirable traits that the faculty should have: ability to inspire, flexibility to adopt non-traditional teaching methods, objectivity or fairness in dealing with students, and sensitivity to the feelings of their students. 6) Among the problems faced by the Religious Studies programs, the inadequate use of audiovisuals in instruction stands out. For the Campus Ministry, they consider their lack of manpower to provide retreat or recollection to every student as a serious problem. For COSCA, its concern focuses on its lack of communication channels with the students. 7) The assimilation of Lasallian values is more pronounced among the graduating students than among the freshmen, especially those concerning respect for human life, caring for the needy, and asserting the rights of the poor. However, freshmen students are found to be more receptive to assimilating religious values, such as belief in one God and in Jesus Christ, in the Bible, and in Church teachings, as compared to graduating students. The study concludes with a list of recommendations to improve the three programs, foremost of which is to consolidate the three into one major unit or Institute under one director, for greater efficiency and effectiveness.
