UE President Receives Award of Highest Honor from Japanese University

U E P r e s i d e nt a n d C h i e f Academic Officer Ester Albano Garcia was honored by Soka University (SU) with the Soka Women’s College Award of Highest Honor in the morning of March 21, 2012, during the President’s visit to Tokyo, Japan, with UE Caloocan Chancellor Zosimo M. Battad on March 19 to 23. President Garcia was conferred with this award by no less than SU President Hideo Yamamoto. The award is in recognition of her achievements in the field of education, being former Vice President for Academic Affairs of the University of the Philippines, former Commissioner and Chairperson of the Commission on Higher Education, and now UE President, and for promoting peace among the nations of the world. The President received a gold medallion and a citation, and the award is a fitting recognition of a great woman-educator of the Philippines. It also comes in perfectly, at a time when all the women of the world should be recognized, as March is known

internationally as Women’s Month. The awarding came right after President Garcia signed a memorandum of understanding on behalf of UE with SU, as represented by President Yamamoto that morning. In the afternoon of the same day, President Garcia was the guest of honor at the Soka University g r a d u a t i o n ceremony at the Ikeda Auditorium. Chancellor Battad delivered the graduation message in front of roughly 3,000 graduates of both Soka University and Soka Women’s College and an audience of 11,000. The Philippine delegation was joined by officials of Bataan Peninsula State University, led by President

Outstanding Law Alumnus Donates 650 Volumes of Supreme Court Reports Commissioner Heidi Mendoza at the UE Conference Hall

Famed ‘Whistleblower’ Turned COA Commissioner Talks of Social Responsibility and Good Governance The UE Graduate School, in cooperation with the UE College of Law, conducted its fourth lecture—on Social Responsibility and Good Governance—in the afternoon of March 13, 2012, at Conference Hall in UE Manila. The Conference Hall was packed with students, professors from the different Colleges and guests from different institutions. Honorable Commissioner Heidi L. Mendoza of the Commission on Audit was the Guest of Honor and Speaker of the UE lecture. Commissioner Mendoza became renowned in 2011 as a “whistleblower” of financial anomalies involving the Armed Forces of the Philippines. She was later appointed by President Benigno Aquino III to become COA Commissioner when the position became vacant in 2011. The UE program started with an invocation led by Dr. Elisa G. Puzon, followed by the singing of the National Anthem led by Prof. Wilison Reyes. In her opening remarks, UE Manila Chancellor Linda P. Santiago described the Guest Speaker as a truly outstandiung Filipino. Graduate School Dean Avelina A. De La Rea did the honors of introducing the Guest of Honor and Speaker.


March 2012 • Vol. 2, No. 1

Commissioner Mendoza vividly narrated her own experience as an Auditor in the COA up until her being the Commissioner of COA. She said that to be in her government post while being an advocate of social responsibility and governance continues to be a struggle. She added that her COA position is more challenging than her work in the Asian Development Bank, her employer before becoming COA Commissioner. Commissioner Mendoza stressed that she accepted the position of COA Commissioner because she wants her fellow Filipinos to know that “not all government employees are thieves, not all Filipinos are afraid to speak out against corruption.” Social responsibility, Commissioner Mendoza said, means going above and beyond what is called for by law, and that it entails being proactive toward a problem rather than being reactive. Social responsibility, she added, means eliminating corrupt, irresponsible or unethical behavior that might bring harm to the community, its people, or the environment before the behavior happens. Mendoza also talked about the building blocks for good governance,

citing honesty, accountability and transparency as the behavior a public official should possess to attain the good governance an official aims for the people. She ended her speech by saying, “Hindi puwedeng mangarap ng malinis na pamahalaan na walang iaambag.” Following the lecture was an open forum headed by Dr. Salvador I. Sibayan, College Secretary of the Graduate School. Questions from students, professors and guests were answered by the Honorable Speaker. After an intermission number by Prof. Reyes, the closing remarks of Dean Amado D. Valdez of the UE College of Law were read by Dean Rogelio V. Paglomutan of the College of Business AdministrationCaloocan. The closing remarks were an expression of gratitude to the honorable commissioner for sharing her wisdom with the University, an extension of praise for her having turned her back on comfort to do what’s best for the greater good, and a means to challenge the UE constituency to contribute to nationbuilding, by quoting Mahatma Gandhi: “Be the change you want to see in the world.”

Reports Annotated (SCRA) from Atty. Jose Agaton R. Sibal, one of its accomplished alumni. The formal turnover was made on February 10, 2012, at the College of Law Library. The SCRA is a compilation of Philippine Supreme Court decisions from many years back to the present, with a month’s worth of Supreme Court decisions often compiled into three volumes of SCRA. A single volume of the SCRA is worth P1,000. Atty. Sibal, a 1973 UE Bachelor of Laws graduate and a member of the 2011 Dean of the UE College of Law Alumni Honor Roll, is the Chairman and CEO of Central Book Supply, the publisher of the SCRA. The donation started as a pledge through the initiative of UE College of Law Dean Amado D. Valdez during the awarding ceremonies of the 2011 Dean of the College of Law Alumni Honor Roll last September. Atty. Sibal then vowed to donate SCRA volumes to the UE College of Law Library. The donation was then delivered to the UE Law Library last January 20. At the turnover—organized by the UE College of Law and the Department of Libraries and graced by UE President Ester A. Garcia and UE Manila Chancellor Linda P. Santiago— Atty. Sibal further promised to donate new volumes of SCRA to the UE Law Library. His gesture was received with a thunderous applause courtesy of the law students present. In honor of Atty. Sibal’s donation, a portion of the UE Law Library has been renamed the Sibal Corner, which will house the donated SCRA volumes.—With a report by Alan Joyce B. Aggabao, Office Assistant, UE College of Law


UE-NSTP Marks 10th Anniversary with ‘Genuine Service and Renewed Commitment’ The UE National Service and Training Program (UE-NSTP) celebrated its 10th Anniversary this March 2012 with a series of relevant first-time projects to commemorate its successful implementation both as an extension program for the institution and a practical course for the students. The anniversary’s theme was “A Decade of Genuine Service and Renewed Commitment towards a Sustainable and Empowered Community.” In line with the celebration, the UE-NSTP constituency produced a series of relevant projects. First was the Research Consortium, which was represented by faculty members from the different community teams. (The research project ran in SY 2011-2012, from the first up to the second semesters). It was aimed at assessing the impact of community projects and programs being instituted in various barangays to ensure their implementation and

effective operations. The other projects were the Coffeetable Book Launching, Quiz Bee, Coffeetable Book Cover Design, and Essay-Writing Competitions which delved on the theme “UE-NSTP a Decade Hence: Serving People, Community and Institutions—A Pride of True Legacy.” The competitions were held on March 3 at the UE Conference Hall, with NSTP students of UE Manila and UE Caloocan participating. The Coffeetable Book Cover Design Competition featured 20 participants who interpreted the theme “Volunteerism and Environmentalism: Lasting Expressions of Rizal’s Love for the Country” into vivid, colorful images. The winners were Gabriel P. Napilot of UE Caloocan, 1st Place; Triccia Camille C. Millares of UE Manila, 2nd Place; and Annie Ruth A. Suficencia, 3rd Place. The Coffeetable Book will feature selected narrative reports of UE NSTP students in the

past 10 years and will be launched in May 2012. The Essay-writing Competition had 51 participants coming from both Campuses. The winners, all UE Manila students, were Neill Daniel T. Velo, 1st Place; Vincent F. Ramiso, 2nd Place; and Carlo G. Urmaza, 3rd Place. The Quiz Bee had a total of 59 contestants, who all underwent three rounds of competition: easy, average and difficult. The winners were Yubelle B. De La Cruz of UE Caloocan, 1st Place; Jennifer A. Javier of UE Manila, 2nd Place; and Fernebert L. Ganiban of UE Manila, 3rd Place. The Annual Photo Exhibit was launched on March 6 at the Dalupan Building Lobby in UE Manila, with “Noon, ang Simula, Tagumpay sa Pagkakaisa: UE-NSTP Isang Dekada na sa Paglilingkod, Pagmamalasakit, Pagsasanay, Pagtugon at Pagtatalaga” as theme. The exhibit featured the different committees of the NSTP as

well as the work they do and their accomplishments. Rounding up the celebration were the NSTP Commencement Exercises held on March 17. (Some of the graduates are seen in the photo above.) Prof. Aimee Dizon, former Chairperson of the Department of History and International Studies, addressed more than 500 graduates of Literacy Training Service (LTS) and Civic Welfare Training Service (CWTS). Prof. Dizon cited the values of volunteerism and environmentalism as Rizal’s expression of love for country. She also shared with the students some of her experiences as a former NSTP faculty member. She also expressed hope that the graduates would see their true worth in service and responsibility as she likened the graduates to a narra tree: strong-willed and useful.—Based on the report by Dr. Madeleine M. Co, CAS Manila Professor and CWTS Component Coordinator

UE Caloocan held a weeklong celebration of the 50th founding anniversary of Caloocan City itself, from February 20 to 24, 2012. Several exhilarating events were spearheaded by the different colleges and student organizations with “Unity and Excellence in Realizing Exemplary Dreams (UE RED)” as overall theme. This celebration made the UE Caloocan Community unite and believe in one common perspective: It’s more fun in UE Caloocan! The activities during the celebration included a thanksgiving mass, a motorcade and parade, a sports fest, seminars, an arts exhibit and competition, a career orientation for senior high school students of public and private high schools, a campus tour and free college entrance test, contests and quiz bee, UE alumni awareness gatherings, a pageant, a research colloquium, team-building activities, bloodletting, film showing, IT tutorials, and a job fair. One of the highlights of this year’s celebration was the College of Business Administration lecture on “The Challenges in the Airline Industry” held on February 22, 2012 at Multipurpose Hall 1 of the College of Engineering. The guest of honor and speaker was Philippine Airlines (PAL) President and Chief Operating Officer Jaime J. Bautista, who is also the Vice Chairman of UE. Vice Chairman Bautista’s talk focused on major issues affecting the airline industry in general and PAL in particular. A n o t h e r C a l o o c a n We e k highlight was the awareness day sponsored by the UE Caloocan Alumni Association in partnership with the Ecological Society, and Umagang kay Ganda and Boto Mo, Ipatrol Mo, morning programs of ABS-CBN News and Current Affairs, on February 23, 2012, 4 a.m., at the UE Caloocan Gymnasium. There was a live telecast of the different events offered by the Alumni Association such as physical fitness, where 1,000 students participated and were choreographed by the dynamic and energetic faculty members of the PE Department, headed by the Officer in Charge, Prof. Paulita

Idian; seminars on cervical cancer and environmental issues; an art competition; and “Chef’s Warrior,” in cooperation with the College of Arts and Sciences Committee on Extension and Community Outreach (CAS CECO), CAS Student Council (CASSC), and the Council of Hotel and Restaurant Management Society (CHARMS). Moreover, UE Caloocan, through the Committee on Alumni Affairs and ABS-CBN, also commemorated the 26th anniversary of the EDSA revolution via “Tropang Malaya Bunga ng Edsa,” specifically enriching the students’ awareness of the very essence and significance of Philippine democracy in the present generation, with UE alumnus and former Philippine Vice President Noli “Kabayan” De Castro, ABSCBN anchors Sol Aragones and Gang Badoy, and singer-composer Jim Paredes as guest speakers. The program also unshackled the quiescent consciousness of the students when rhythm and blues singer Princess Velasco and Pinoy Dream Academy winner Bugoy Drilon came out to inspire and entertain. UE Caloocan alumnus and Communication Arts special lecturer Engelbert Apostol (UE AB ’94) made the special participation of ABS-CBN possible in this year’s celebration. An exciting moment for the celebration of the UE Caloocan week was the team-building activity on February 24 at Johndel Resort in Nasugbu, Batangas. It was coordinated by Assistant Librarian Flordelina Manzalay, Chair of the Committee on Team-building. All these are thanks to the UE Caloocan Chancellor, Dr. Zosimo M. Battad, Overall Chairman; College of Engineering Dean Victor C. Macam, the Steering Committee chair; the Steering Committee members: Deans Julian E. Abuso (Arts and Sciences), Rogelio V. Paglomutan (Business Administration) and Celino B. Santiago (Fine Arts), Elementary and High School Department Principal Benilda L. Santos and Student Affairs Office Director Clemente A. Diwas.—Prof. Efren C. Gimoto Jr., Faculty member, Department of Communication Arts, CAS Caloocan
