Welcome to the Student and Welfare Development Board (SWDB)!
The SWDB under the supervision of the Office for Student Affairs provides services, programs, and facilities that gears toward students' success and future positive contributions to the society.
The University of Santo Tomas is responsible for the students' holistic development with emphasis on moral and character-building through the SWDB office.
To inculcate these ideals, the Student and Welfare Development Coordinator (SWDC) ensures strict compliance with the proper norm of conduct and discipline; as well as to provide students the support systems necessary to reach their full potentials while addressing their needs.
The Student Welfare and Development Board (SWDB) is a collegial body, tasked to formulate and recommend to the Assistant to the Rector for Student Affairs policies affecting student welfare and student discipline; and for purposes of achieving uniformity in sanctions imposed in disciplinary cases, review and modify the sanctions imposed by the College.
The SWDB collaborates with the Assistant to the Rector for Student Affairs in the mobilization of students for university wide activities aimed at promoting Thomasian culture and identity.
The SWDB is composed of the Student Welfare and Development Committee (SWDC) coordinators of the nineteen colleges and faculties of the University. The Assistant Dean of the college serves as the ex- officio head of the SWDC. In colleges where there is no Assistant Dean, a faculty member is appointed to serve as the Coordinator of the Committee. The SWDC of each College is composed of at least three faculty members with the primary function of investigating and recommending to the Dean and Regent of the College the appropriate actions in disciplinary cases.
