Abstract
The study aimed to determine the status of organizational quality and excellence of Batangas State University and to address prospects and opportunities for sustainable development, thus, making BatStateU a university of choice. This is derived from the perceived level of organizational quality and excellence by the 550 research participants composed of university administrators, faculty members, and students from the eight campuses under BatStateU Proper using the quality management dimensions such as governance and management, management of resources, community relations, student support services, quality of teaching and research, customer-focus, process management, and workforce focus. The study used the descriptive method of research and utilized a crossbred of eight components gathered from various quality assurance models. The statistical treatments used to analyze the data include weighted mean, analysis of variance, multiple linear regression and correlation analysis, and factor analysis. The assessment made revealed that BatStateU is evidently moving toward the highest level of organizational quality and excellence for sustainable development in the context of total quality management. The new constructs for organizational quality and excellence such as investment on people, leadership and administration, societal relations, and student career development were determined through factor analysis. These new constructs will help the University to develop culture of excellence and make BatStateU as an institution of higher education dedicated to the pursuit and dissemination of knowledge, study and clarification of values, formation of a vibrant and productive academic community, and the advancement of the society it serves.
