In January 1983, then University President, Dr. Pablo T. Mateo, expanded the Office of Media and Community Relations into the University Public Relations Office. Corollary to this, the University Publications Office (UPO) initially served as an advisory/supervisory office for student publications, particularly the defunct The New Businessman, renamed The Catalyst (official newspaper of PUP students), and the Memorabilia (official yearbook of graduating students), and other student publications. The UPO was relieved of this function in 1987 when the Student Publications Office was created. Nevertheless, the UPO continued to provide technical assistance and advice to other campus publications, such as newsletters and other periodicals being
published by various campus organizations, both faculty and student.
The UPO was in charge of organization and publication of various scholarly journals, as well as the preparation of annual accomplishments and other significant reports of the University. It also provided immediate supervision in the production of some other printed materials connected with the University activities, such as graduations, anniversaries, special celebrations, seminars and the like.
With the assumption to the presidency of Dr. Ofelia M. Carague in the biggest state university in the country, a change in the University organizational structure became a priority.
Placed directly under the Office of the President was the Public Affairs Office. The Publications Office was transferred to the newly formed Office of the Vice President for Research and Development where it has been attached up to this date.
