REPORT (APRIL-JUNE 2014)
Submitted to the 1298
Board of Regents Meeting 30 June 2014
General Assembly of Student Councils
Last May 26-27, 2014, the Office of the Student Regent conducted the 38
General Assembly of Student Councils (GASC) at the UP Visayas Tacloban College. This is the second GASC for the term of Student Regent Krista Iris V. Melgarejo. Included in the
agenda is the selection of UP’s 32
Student Regent and resolution building among the student councils in the UP System. The GASC unanimously selected Mr. Neill John Macuha, an incoming MS Economics student from the University of the Philippines Los Banos, as the 32
Student Regent. The second and third nominees are Ms. Patricia Camille Villa of UP Manila and Ms. Allynna-Haneefa Macapado of UP Diliman respectively.
ASEAN Student Leaders’ Forum
Mr. Neill John G. Macuha, Student Regent-Select, was selected by UP Los Baños as one of its delegates in the recently-concluded 3
ASEAN Student Leaders’ Forum (ASLF),
Youth with Vision: Establishment of Youth Leaders as an ASEAN Unit, held in University Brunei Darussalam last June 24-27, 2014. Stated below are the points of unity established during the said forum: 1.
There is a need for an increased effort toward raising the awareness of students and the people regarding the ASEAN, the ASEAN University Network (AUN) and the ASEAN Integration of 2015. 2.
In order to facilitate this, an ASEAN Affairs Unit will be institutionalized in the different student unions. The unit is in charge of ensuring the continuous activities in line with its functions. 3.
Since the AUN has no direct linkage to student unions, the AUN suggests that a focal point per university be appointed in order to facilitate easier coordination between the network and the students. With this, the Office of the Student Regent expresses its intent to be delegated the task of becoming the focal point for the University of the Philippines.
