UP officials met today, 05 February, at the PNP National Headquarters in Camp Crame, Quezon City, with officials of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) and the Philippine National Police (PNP) to discuss the 1992 agreement between UP and the DILG.

A joint resolution crafted by the three sectoral UP regents, which upholds UP as a “safe space for free thought and expression”, has not been denied by the BOR and is instead undergoing refinement by a technical working group.
