POLICY PROPOSAL Change in the academic calendar to synchronize with the University’s major global academic partners ___________________________________________________________________

Policy statement This is a policy proposal to change the academic calendar of the University from June-March to August-May schedule. The proposal is consistent with the provision of UP’s Charter to be a regional and global university, and addresses current developments in the region and the world. ___________________________________________________________________________ 1. Background and rationale: Most Philippine schools’ academic year starts in June with the first semester ending in October and the second semester commencing in November and ending in March the following year. Such a schedule allows for a two-month summer vacation when the weather is too hot and fiestas are held in different parts of the country. World education, although marked by bilateral and even multilateral cooperation, had largely been implemented by individual universities with policies unique to the needs of the partner universities or countries. However, by the 21st century, the world’s educational systems have globalized with universities embarking on greater collaboration through university networks and joint offerings of curricular programs and research. Moreover, in 2015, ASEAN countries are expected to implement fully the action plan of the vision of the ASEAN Economic Cooperation (http://www.asean.org/archive/5187-10.pdf) as an initial mechanism for the ASEAN Integration 2020. Although it is envisioned that in 2015, ASEAN will become one single market and production base and thus the focus is on economic cooperation, it is inevitable that it will involve human resources and capacity and their movements in the region. For the University of the Philippines, the developments in the last 5 years signaled a greater role in the international arena. In 2008, RA 9500 was passed into law. The act, entitled, “An Act to Strengthen the University of the Philippines as the National University” or the University of the Philippines Charter of 2008, was aimed at “strengthening UP’s unique and distinctive leadership role in higher education and development” and tasked UP to respond to this globalized education. Thus, one of the University’s purposes is to serve “as a regional and global university in cooperation with international and scientific unions, networks of universities… in the Asia-Pacific Region and around the world”. In facilitating the flow of services by 2015, ASEAN is working on harmonization and standardization and the ASEAN Universities Network (AUN) is laying the groundwork for increased mobility of both students and staff within the region. However, one of the challenges of AUN in facilitating student and staff mobility is harmonizing the academic calendar of the different AUN member


2 universities. Most AUN member universities as well as China, Korea, Japan (see attached calendar), EU and the USA start their classes in August, September or October. Among countries with universities as part of AUN, only the Philippines starts the academic calendar in June. Thailand has two (2) academic calendars but their international calendar to which foreign students are allowed to enroll in, also starts in August or September. Thus, under our present academic calendar, students that we send to AUN member universities under the ASEAN Credit Transfer System (AUN-ACTS) must ensure they get courses for a full 10 months or two semesters. This is because most ASEAN Universities starts their first term in August or September, as mentioned, while their second term starts in January or February. If UP students cross-enroll for the first term in an ASEAN University for credit transfer, their classes will end in December, which is already a third of the way into our second semester. On the other hand, if they choose to cross-enroll during the second term, they will have to wait until January for classes to begin. Providing the opportunity for greater student mobility will enhance UP’s internationalization program. In the ASEAN, student exchanges will enrich the learning and experiences of our students as it allows them to interact with multicultures. Studies have shown that students who’ve had the opportunity to interact with other cultures or study abroad even for short periods of time are more intellectually mature, and well-rounded in terms of skills, experience and personal development (http://www.gla.ac.uk/media/media_105267_en.pdf) and are more employable. Worldwide there is a strong emphasis on internationalization because 1) it helps to improve student preparedness particularly in dealing with multi-cultures and in addressing global demands of society, employment and the economy; 2) it internationalizes the curriculum; 3) it enhances the international profile of the institution, particularly important for university rankings; 4) it strengthens research and knowledge production and 5) it diversifies its faculty and staff thereby avoiding inbreeding (http://chronicle.com/blogs/worldwise/internationalization-of-highereducation-the-good-the-bad-and-the-unexpected/27512). 2. Objective: This proposal therefore aims to fully implement the provision of UP’s Charter to be a regional and global university, maximize student and staff mobility as well, and foster greater cooperation in relation to implementing the action plan of the ASEAN Economic Cooperation 2015. 3. Scope and implementation plan To synchronize academic calendar with ASEAN, Northeast Asian (China and Korea; Japan starts classes in October), American and European Universities which are our usual academic partners, it is proposed that the academic calendar be shifted from a June-March schedule to August-May academic year starting upon approval of the Board of Regents but not later than 2015. The shift will apply to all academic programs, undergraduate and graduate. The academic calendar will thus be as follows:

4. Impact to the University, its operations and traditions 4.1. Advantages: 4.1.1. Moving the start of classes to August will allow greater synchronization of our academic calendar with that of ASEAN, Northeast Asian (China and Korea; Japan starts classes in October), and the American and European Universities as well, which are our usual academic partners. As shown by the attached calendar, most ASEAN universities start classes either August or September except for Cambodia, which starts in October, and Myanmar that starts in July. In addition, most American Universities starts their fall term in the middle or end of August ending in the middle of December while the spring term starts in the middle of January and ends at the beginning of May (http://www.fulbright.org.uk/pre-departure/academics/academiccalendar). European universities start their classes between September – October with the first semester ending in the second week of December; second semester starts in the first week of February and ends in the 3rd week of May. (http://eacea.ec.europa.eu/education/eurydice/documents/facts_and_figu res/academic_calendar_EN.pdf). With greater student mobility and partnerships/joint programs being envisioned with Universities in these countries, there will be less problem with semestral overlaps and students can easily get credit transfer on a per semester basis. 4.1.2. Synchronizing the academic calendar with most of our international academic partners will allow our faculty to participate in many training programs and summer institutes offered by these institutions during the months of June-July. In addition, since currently classes in high school will end in March, there will be a longer bridging program for entering freshmen that will need remedial classes before they enter the University.

Page 3


4 4.1.3. Currently, the second semester starts in November then a 2-week break coinciding with the Christmas break interrupts the momentum of class activities. The shift will allow for continuous classes to be conducted and a longer semestral break that will coincide with the Christmas break. 4.1.4. June-July is the start of the country’s rainy season. The shift in the academic calendar will extend classes to April-May where there is less disruption of classes compared with classes being held in June–July when there are more typhoons and inclement weather. The table below gives the average number of typhoons that visited the country over a 6year period from 2005-2010 during the months of March-July (whether it made landfall or not but nonetheless entered the Philippines Area of Responsibility (PAR) and enhanced the southwest monsoon). Average number of typhoons over a period of 6 years (2005-2010) Month Ave. March 0.17 April 0.33 May 1.33 June 0.67 July 2.50 The table shows that the probability of typhoons disrupting classes in April and May is lower than the period June-July hence there will be less loss of class hours. In addition, although officially the rainy season starts in June, the annual precipitation profile varies with region (http://www.weather-and-climate.com/). For a 3-year period (2010-2013), precipitation profiles showed that regions in the northern, central and northwestern part of Luzon including Manila and Batangas, as well as the islands in the western side of the country such as Palawan and Iloilo have similar patterns with the rainy season peaking in August. On the other hand, the southeastern part of Luzon (Bicol region) and eastern Visayas (Leyte) and Mindanao (Surigao) shows similar precipitation profiles where June-July show the lowest average precipitation while the months of November-January give the highest average precipitation. Areas somewhat in the middle show less variability in the average precipitation with rainfall spread almost evenly throughout the year. 4.2. Operational concerns 4.2.1. Registration will have to be re-scheduled for sophomore onwards. 4.2.2. UPCAT examinations – since currently there is no change in the schedule of graduation from high school of entering freshmen, UPCAT exam can simply be administered in middle or late July when the University is on its “summer” break and college registration and classes have not yet started. Exam results may be released as scheduled to inform applicants early on of their acceptance to the University; freshmen registration can also proceed in May (when advisers are also around) as

Page 4


5 previously scheduled so that only sophomores onwards will have their regular registration during the new registration period in August. This will also give time for the University and the freshmen students to look for scholarships before formal classes starts. 4.3. UP’s traditions 4.3.1. The University must readjust schedule or think of creative means to preserve the traditional Lantern parade and other Christmas activities. 4.3.2. UP’s foundation day in June should encourage more participation from the alumni who have the historical and institutional memories of their UP days. Moreover, every new alumnus should be made more aware that it is also the graduates who should build upon the foundations of the University. Every foundation should also hold activities that should showcase what UP had accomplished and what it contributed to nation building. 4.4. UP’s relationships with national institutions 4.4.1. CHED and DepEd In re-affirming its leadership role, UP must lead in enhancing internationalization and student and staff mobility by initially synchronizing its academic calendar with most of its university partners abroad. Whether DepEd follows or not, the University’s intake of students from high school will not be delayed nor altered. Students will in fact have a longer bridging program before the start of classes in the University. On the other hand, shifting to UP by students from other higher education institutions regulated by CHED will also not be affected; students who want to shift to UP will in fact be able to enroll in summer classes in other higher education institutions to improve their grades and increase their chances of being accepted by programs in the University. 4.4.2. PRC The University will have to make representations to PRC to change also the schedule of professional licensure examinations to accommodate our graduates who will obtain their diplomas in May.
