UST Office of Alumni Relations rolled out a reconstructed Alumni Information
System (AIS) website with new features to serve its stakeholders better during
the COVID-19 pandemic.
goal behind this project is to encourage all Thomasian alumni to reconnect with
the university through sharing relevant and updated information regarding their
professional background and accomplishments," said the OAR Director Asst. Prof.
Fredeswindo R. Medina, MACHs.
AIS is a website where alumni could update its university records such as their
married name, contact numbers, addresses, etc. It is a database that allows the
university to keep track and determine the attainment of graduate outcomes
after completion of degree from the institution. The extracted data has been
utilized for the past international accreditation and licensing.
2019, OAR conducted a survey to all AIS registrants concerning the improvement
of the website. Suggestions and comments from the alumni community were all
taken to consideration by the office in upgrading the system. After a year of
revisions and test runs, OAR with the assistance of Santo Tomas e-Service
Providers (STePS) deployed the reconstructed website on soft launch to cater
the Class of 2020. Two new modules respectively for announcements and online
transactions were opened. The first module will let the alumni view
interests-related announcements directly from their accounts posted by OAR. The
latter mentioned module will direct the users to Thomasian Alumni Card
applications and yearbook delivery service.
OAR aims to open the
service to all batches by the start of the third quarter of 2021. This move
will hopefully strengthen the community network and the number of registered
alumni in the system.
Upgraded gateway page of the Alumni
Thomasian alumni are highly encouraged to register and update their information
in the Alumni Information System. This will give positive contributions to the
programs and projects of the university particularly in tracking their alumni
to properly recognize their achievements. This would also help in providing
essential information on local and international accreditations that would
maintain and even upgrade the status of the university as a premier and
world-class Higher Educational Institution," stated by Asst. Prof. Medina as a
call to his fellow alumni.
Currently, the class of
2000 to recent may register through the AIS website (https://ais.ust.edu.ph)Older batches may
register at https://bit.ly/USTALUMNI. Extracted data from the
link will be manually verified by OAR and transferred to the system to be
accessed by the registrant.
