The event, which was divided into three ceremonies, hosted graduates from undergraduate programs from the main campus, its branches and satellite campuses, Diploma Courses, Open University System, and Graduate School.</p> <p><strong>Finding courage in life seasons and struggles</strong><br /> Valedictorians from each of the three clusters represented the class of 2022, where they inspired their fellow graduates with stories of persistence, struggles, failures, and breakthroughs.</p> <p>Carlo James Reyes, a Summa Cum Laude from the Bachelor of Arts in Broadcasting, shared the principle that guided him when he entered Sintang Paaralan: “Everything happens for a reason.” He believes that this mantra has given him the courage and strength to try, venture, keep going and fight for where he is right now.</p> <p>John Edison Recto of PUP-Taguig talked about the “remarkable things” that he has learned along his college journey, one of which is the realizations about the uncertainty of life.</p> <p>“Life is full of choices, we have to open to the unexpected as life opens so many surprises. Expect the unexpected.”</p> <p>Recto, a Summa Cum Laude of Bachelor of Education Major in English who represented the graduates from the branches and satellite campuses, also emphasized the idea of perfect timing. According to him, everyone has their own perfect season for everything, pointing out the importance of preparedness.</p> <p>Dr. Michelle Lasundin, a graduate of Doctor in Business Administration also delivered a valedictory speech that focuses on her life experiences and the lessons she has learned.</p> <p><strong>Congressional leaders, DPWH USec are Tanglaw ng Bayan awardees</strong><br /> Alongside the three-part graduation ceremony, the university also bestowed the Tanglaw ng Bayan Award to this year’s commencement speakers: Senate President (SP) Juan Miguel Zubiri, House Speaker and Leyte 1st District Representative, Ferdinand Martin Romualdez, and Maria Catalina Cabral, Undersecretary for Planning and Public-Private Partnership Services of the Department of Public Works and Highways.</p> <p>In their keynote address, Zubiri, Romualdez and Cabral expressed their gratitude and appreciation towards the University for the award they have received. The Tanglaw ng Bayan Award is awarded to individuals in celebration of their achievements and in acknowledgement of their contribution to the development of the country and its people.</p> <p>In his message, SP Zubiri commends the graduating students which he described as the “survivors of a grueling intellectual marathon” which has a “punishing 85% fail rate.” Zubiri recognized the contribution that PUP and its graduates have made to the community, especially during challenging times. He also highlighted the issues that the country is facing today, in particular the economic and societal impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.</p> <p><img alt="PUP holds virtual conferment of degrees" class="image image-full" src="https://i.ibb.co/zQ0LxFX/2022-09-22-pup-holds-virtual-conferment-of-degrees.jpg" /></p> <br/><a href="http://www.pup.edu.ph/news/?go=aUK9sG4mF74%3d">View this article in PUPWebSite</a> Thu, 22 Sep 2022 15:18:00 GMT http://www.pup.edu.ph/news/?go=aUK9sG4mF74%3d GAD, EMO advocate gender-related extension programs Dr. Edna Tormon-Bernabe, News, Extension Management Office <br/><p>The Office of the Vice President for Research and Development (OVPREPD), through the Gender and Development Office (GADO) and the Extension Management Office (EMO) , conducted a two-day training workshop titled: Gender in Extension Programs last September 1-2, 2022 via Zoom.</p> <p>With the primary objective of capacitating the participants on the formulation and conduct of gender-related extension programs and projects, the capability-building activity was attended by approximately 280 participants from the different units, offices, branches and campuses of the university. The guest speaker was Dr. Presley V. De Vera, Gender and Development Coordinator of the Open University Systems of Pangasinan State University, Lingayen Campus.</p> <p>Prof. De Vera delivered insightful and motivating topics on key Gender Concepts and Basic Gender Analysis, Data and Materials for Gender Analysis, Gender and Analysis Framework where Harvard Analytic Framework and Moser Frameworks were emphasized. Dr. De Vera also stressed the role of CHED Memorandum Order No. 01, series of 2015, where the conduct of Gender Responsive Extension Programs is highly encouraged in higher education institutions. She mentioned that the priority areas of GREP, which are technology transfer, livelihood programs, technical assistance, advocacies, linkages are some of the essential attributes for a successful and impactful extension project.</p> <p>Dr. De Vera also provided additional insights on the Harmonized Gender and Development Guidelines (HGDG) for Project Development, Implementation, Monitoring and Evaluation –a comprehensive discussion on guiding the project leaders and members in the conduct of GAD-related programs and projects. She discussed the salient points in the guidelines and provided practical tips and examples of best practices in the conduct of gender-related extension initiatives.</p> <p>Representatives from the different clusters presented their extension project proposals. The clusters were represented by the different colleges, branches and campuses and noteworthy proposals were evaluated by the resource speaker.</p> <p>A total of 15 proposals were formulated during the workshop which aim to address various themes such as upcycling, day-care development, spiritual wellness, health communication, mushroom production, arts for peace and equality, early reading performance, career development, women’s capacity improvement, and women’s livelihood programs.</p> <p><img alt="GAD, EMO advocate gender-related extension programs" class="image image-full" src="https://i.ibb.co/q7xNCtT/2022-09-22-gad-emo-advocate-gender-related-extension-programs.jpg" /></p> <br/><a href="http://www.pup.edu.ph/news/?go=Y6MXnxL54n0%3d">View this article in PUPWebSite</a> Thu, 22 Sep 2022 14:30:00 GMT http://www.pup.edu.ph/news/?go=Y6MXnxL54n0%3d Computer Science, Statistics students nab top spots in ASEAN DSE National Finals Emy Ruth Gianan, Angelo Acedera, News, Communication Management Office <br/><p>Two separate teams comprised of PUP students nab top spots in the ASEAN Data Science Explorers 2022 National Finals, as announced in a virtual ceremony last August 28. Prince Jewel Federe, a fourth year Computer Science student, is the other half of Team Paradocs, champions of this year’s competition. Bea Jane Lazona and John Adrian Adona, both fourth year Statistics students, secured the 2nd runner-up spot in the national finals.</p> <p>Every year, the ASEAN-DSE competition invites students from a variety of ASEAN member states who compete to present solutions to problems confronting our nations. Among other winners for the ASEAN-DSE 2022 are students from the University of the Philippines and Ateneo De Manila University. The winners were chosen based on their capacity to develop the most comprehensive solution that solves the socio-economic issues facing ASEAN and is informed by data insights.</p> <p><strong>Solving the world’s biggest development challenges</strong><br /> Students are asked to develop data-driven solutions to challenges that hinder the Southeast Asian region from achieving the 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs). Federe’s Team Paradocs centered their winning concept on establishing vermiculture hubs and community gardens to produce sustainable food.</p> <p>“Vermiculture hubs: these hubs will house worms, who will take care of leftover food and other organic waste in the community. When feeding those worms, they will produce vermicast. If you don’t know, vermicast is the best alternative to our fertilizer, arguably even better than compost. So, the community garden will feed the people, and their leftovers will be processed by worms, and the vermicast they produce will be returned to the community garden as fertilizer alternatives,” Federe explained in an email interview.</p> <p>For Lazona and Adona’s Team Facts and Stats, it is vital to address plastic pollution because it continues to threaten the marine ecosystem and human health. They developed Plasticoon, a plastic waste management app which helps people earn money by recycling plastic waste without the hassle.</p> <p>“[Our project] aims to raise awareness of plastic pollution in the oceans via remodeling their perspective on the idea of plastic as another source of income by donating plastic waste for the sake of recycling,” Lazona expounded in an email interview.</p> <p>Both projects are currently in beta phase.</p> <p><strong>Joining competitions and finding value in data</strong><br /> Both teams underwent crucial preparation to claim a coveted spot in the national finals. When Bea Jane and John Adrian of Facts and Stats cleared the initial phase of the competition, they took every opportunity to scrutinize and re-evaluate their storyboard.</p> <p>“We let our friends critique it and asked for help from the PH Ambassador for tips on presenting our storyboard. After gaining confidence from our output, my partner and I practiced presenting several times and tried to answer the possible questions that judges might ask,” Lazona shared, adding that their coach, Prof. Kenneth Nuguid of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, carefully assisted their team through valuable insights to improve their storyboard.</p> <p>Prince also shared his experience for the competition: “When formulating our plan, we had two things in our mind: it has to be sustainable and attainable. It won’t work if we’re just thinking of grand solutions—we had to ask ourselves: ‘can it be done?’”</p> <p>Our award-winning students believe in the hard-earned value of competition. They see these as platforms to empower young thinkers and cultivate a culture of learning among peers and experts. They also shared that data is a powerful tool to make significant and positive changes in human lives and our societies today.</p> <p>“Don’t be afraid to learn and try new things. So please join the competition and see where it leads you. And hey! Data is beautiful because that’s how our world communicates to us in a language we understand. It tells us why things are the way they are. Knowing them will make us appreciate the world better. It’s also all about what you will do with that information. Will you let it stagnate in your head? Or will you go out there and change the world?” Federe exclaimed.</p> <p>For Bea Jane: “You don’t need to be in the field of statistics like us to join this competition. All you need is curiosity, creativity, and determination for you to create an innovative and sustainable solution for the current ASEAN region’s social issues. Lastly, have fun and enjoy the process.”</p> <p>Team Paradocs is qualified to compete in the regional finals, which will be held in Phnom Penh, Cambodia on October 10-12, 2022.</p> <p><img alt="Computer Science, Statistics students nab top spots in ASEAN DSE National Finals" class="image image-full" src="https://i.ibb.co/tqzn5XG/2022-09-13-computer-science-statistics-students-nab-top-spots-in-asean-dse-national-finals.jpg" /></p> <br/><a href="http://www.pup.edu.ph/news/?go=xqJ6CnTFLAs%3d">View this article in PUPWebSite</a> Tue, 13 Sep 2022 08:55:00 GMT http://www.pup.edu.ph/news/?go=xqJ6CnTFLAs%3d PUP begins construction of new 9-storey main building Melanie Jimenez, News, Communication Management Office <br/><p>With the help of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP) begins its largest construction project so far: the improvement of the North Wing - Main Academic Building.</p> <p>In a groundbreaking ceremony held on September 8, President Manuel M. Muhi states that this project is one of the highlights of a re-engineered university as he continues to bid for a National Polytechnic University status.</p> <p>“Since my appointment as a president last 2020, infrastructure projects is my focus. I started lobbying for budget to address the long-standing issues about poor facilities in our university,” said President Muhi. He also mentioned other construction projects that are taking place alongside the construction of main building, such as the improvement of the lagoon, sports facilities, laboratories, classrooms, and research buildings.</p> <p>“Years from now, I believe that our future students will be filled with gratitude for they have finally been provided with the sufficient learning facilities that they so richly deserve. We will continue to foster an atmosphere that allows our employees, students, and faculty members to thrive while providing a quality education for our PUPian in a safe, secure, and supportive environment,” he added.</p> <p>The demolition of the north wing building will begin in the middle of October, according to President Muhi. The project, which will be executed in three phases, is expected to be completed by the end of 2024 or the beginning of 2025.</p> <p>“The DPWH already assured and approved of the allotted budget for the phase 2 and even the phase 3. <em>Kung tuloy-tuloy ang</em> support <em>nila</em>, we can complete the project by 2024 or early quarter of 2025,” he said.</p> <p>Pres. Muhi added that the design of the new main academic building not only takes into account the academic needs of the students, but all engineers and architects also ensured that it is disaster-resilient, especially given the environmental risks in the area, such as the Pasig River, which may cause frequent flooding.</p> <p>With this consideration, there will be more open ground floors, which will serve as student centers. The main building will also have larger classroom sizes, elevators, and air-conditioned multi-purpose rooms.</p> <p>As the university ramps up its effort to improve facilities, the university president urged all Iskolar ng bayan to take care of all the facilities and take full advantage of them once the classes start.</p> <p>“<em>Sa mga mahal naming estudyante para sa inyo ito</em>. <em>Lahat ng</em> facilities <em>natin ay ginawa para mayroon kayong magamit na maayos</em>. <em>Suklian natin ng pagmamahal at alagaan natin ang ating mga pasilidad</em>,” he said.</p> <p><img alt="PUP begins construction of new 9-storey main building" class="image image-full" src="https://i.ibb.co/jDc4TQV/2022-09-09-pup-begins-construction-of-new-9-storey-main-building.jpg" /></p> <br/><a href="http://www.pup.edu.ph/news/?go=ZHf%2f3R5LTLY%3d">View this article in PUPWebSite</a> Fri, 09 Sep 2022 11:43:00 GMT http://www.pup.edu.ph/news/?go=ZHf%2f3R5LTLY%3d CAL lecturer receives best faculty award at 4th IARE 2022 Melanie Jimenez, News, Communication Management Office <br/><p>Assoc.

This is part of its ongoing efforts to ensure the safety of the PUP community and in support of the national government’s push to ramp up COVID-19 vaccination through the ‘PinasLakas’ Campaign.</p> <p>Experts from the Metro Manila Center for Health Development (MMCHD), Manila Health Department (MHD), and DOH, together with some officials from the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) graced the community vaccination program at the PUP Gymnasium where nearly 600 people were inoculated.</p> <p>MMCHD Assistant Regional Director Alelie Grace Sudiacal said that the government is now more than ready to combat the pandemic with a multi-sectoral approach. Meanwhile, PUP President Manuel Muhi encouraged students and employees to get their booster shots as the community prepares for the Ligtas Balik Iskuwela in October. “Magpabakuna para ma-secure natin ang mga kasama natin. Alam naman antin na tumataas pa rin ang percentage ng tinatamaan ng COVID kaya kailangan talagang suportahan ang programa ng gobyerno na PinasLakas (Get vaccinated to secure our colleagues and students. Many people are getting infected by COVID-19, which is why we support this government initiative, PinasLakas),” he shared.</p> <p>PUP started its community vaccination initiatives in 2021 in collaboration with the local government of Manila. Booster jabs will help prevent the vulnerable population from getting severe diseases aggravated by COVID-19. However, DOH reiterates that stern compliance with the minimum health standards is the best way to avoid the spread of the virus and keep hospitalization rates low across the country. PinasLakas will continue to work with different stakeholders in bringing vaccination efforts in schools, plazas, markets, malls, places of worship, and workplaces.</p> <p>For more details, kindly contact Mr. Angelo G.
