The inauguration of the new Philippine Genome Center Visayas, which will pursue research for fisheries and aquatics, agriculture and medicine, is “UP Visayas at its best”, according to UPV Chancellor Camposano.

Today, we mourn the passing of Dr. Nora Cruz Quebral, one of the greatest pioneers the University of the Philippines has produced. At the same time, we honor and celebrate the life she lived and the immense legacy she leaves behind.

DANILO L. CONCEPCION

Dear members of the UP community: I would like to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation to you all for your amazing response to this crisis—a global situation the likes of which we have not seen in our lifetimes. We have been forced to suspend classes, work and all other campus activities, and to stay inside our homes and practice social distancing, all to contain the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and to keep our healthcare system from being dangerously overwhelmed. For some of us, the effects of these measures on our finances, work, and social lives, and on our mental and physical health, have been devastating.

University of the Philippines President Danilo L. Concepcion signs a proclamation declaring September 21 as UP Day of Remembrance this morning in the UP Board of Regents Room, Quezon Hall, Diliman, Quezon City. The proclamation was issued in honor of UP’s contributions to the fight against dictatorship and despotism, UP having stood at the forefront of the resistance to martial law.
