Media and communication students, faculty, scholars, professionals, and enthusiasts from various parts of the country are set to gather at the annual Philippine College Radio Congress, happening on November 26-28, 2019 at the University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman.

Experts from the University of the Philippines on Friday called on lawmakers to reexamine a bill against fake news filed by Senator Vicente Sotto III. Faculty members and researchers from the College of Mass Communication said Senate Bill No. 9 assumes ‘fake news’ is a problem which only thrives on social media platforms.

With just a few days to go before voters troop to the polling stations for the 2019 midterm elections, several units of the University of the Philippines are busy publishing insights, fact check pieces and other materials aimed at aiding voters in their choice of candidates for the different positions in government.
