F
ormer Justice and UP Regent Abraham F. Sarmiento was the speaker during the Centennial commencementexercises in UP Diliman on April 27, 2008 at the UPD Amphitheater. The former Justice delivered a moving speech—“thethoughts of an old man, a UP graduate like all of you”— to Batch 2008, the centennial graduates as he called them.“It is on your shoulders that we, your elders, now put ourhopes for [the] search for truth and knowledge, just asit is on your shoulders that we, your elders, hope to seein you our future leaders—but future leaders who arenationalistic, fair, decent, and honest.” The speech captured the essence of the UPexperience and its impact on the spirits and lives of us“privileged few”, as he calls the UP alumni. He does notsay “iskolar ng bayan” and yet that is what we all were, andhe reminds us of our debt so we may remember that wemust pay back.Coming from various backgrounds into UP, Sarmientosaid the UP freshmen nd themselves in a microcosmof Philippine society but one which is an “aristocracy of the mind.” In addition, it is “a society where a childof a jeepney driver or army sergeant or market vendoror farmer could be with a child of a corporate executive
“F

Dr. Emerlinda R. Roman
University of the Philippines
“I have spent my entire professional lifein UP. I regard it a rare privilege. I am one of those people who love it here. On the gooddays, I still feel a sense of wonder, when theDiliman campus is all green and gold, andyoung people are striding purposefully totheir classes or lingering in the shade of theacacia trees, lling the air with their boundlessenergy and their infectious laughter; and theclassrooms and coffee shops are lled withintelligent people of all ages and persuasionsengaged in lively debate. Where else, I ask myself, where else would I have all this, andmore?“If the UP is to continue to fulllits mandate it must do so as the NationalUniversity of the Philippines. I use the term‘national’ to mean four things,
First 
, there isthe geographic meaning of the word. Withits seven campuses in twelve locations, UPis literally present all over the country. The
second 
meaning has to do with the depth andbreadth of the UP education. No otheruniversity in the country can boast of thescope and range of our course offerings;these include all the disciplines, and thereforeembrace all interests and inclinations.
Third 
,like the National University of Singapore,the University of Indonesia, the University of Malaya in Malaysia, ChulalongkornUniversity in Thailand, Tokyo University, andSeoul National University, UP is the leading university in the country, spearheading thecountry’s quest for knowledge and keeping abreast of advances of advances in differentelds of knowledge worldwide. And
 fourth 
,UP’s orientation remains rmly nationalist:everything we do here we do in the service of the nation.”Dr. Emerlinda R. Roman, the19thPresident of UP, is the rst woman UPpresident. She obtained her highschool,undergraduate, master’s, and doctoraldegrees from the UP. Aside from teaching at her home college, the College of Business Administration, since 1974, she has held various posts in the system, such as Secretary of the University and the Board of Regents, Vice President for Administration, and Faculty Regent. She was UP Diliman Chancellor in1991-1993 and in 1999-2005.
Dr. Ester A. Garcia
University of the East
1. My experiences in UP, as a student andas an academic leader, informed many of my decisions/actions. Coming from a small parishhigh school in a small town in Ilocos Norte,I had to learn how to get along well with allkinds of people on a day-to-day basis, very often in the laboratory. This ability to deal with people is an absolute necessity in any kindof organization, whether as a manager or as aregular employee.2. & 3. Many universities in the Philippinesaim to be, like UP, a research university. ButI personally believe that a country needsdifferent types of higher education institutionsto cater to its many needs.I aim to make UE an excellent teaching university, in the medium term. Most of UE’sresources, at the present time, will be forinstruction, and that research and extensionare done mostly in support of instruction. Wehave embarked on an aggressive program of assessment and accreditation of all coursesand related activities, including researchand extension, the results of which we haveused to implement signicant changes andimprovements.Policy changes were in curriculumplanning and development, as well as withfaculty evaluation, grading system andprocedures, and student’s welfare. Theresearch and extension activities in UE havealso increased and improved dramatically sinceI took over, and our extension ofce is now considered a model among different HEIs andCHED.4. A university is a collegial body wheredecision-making often follows the bottoms-up approach. Transparency, open exchange,dialogue and democratic participation arenecessary. These are the characteristics that Ilearned as a student; you are forced to argueyour point even with your superiors, yourteachers. The student must think and develophis condence and independent-mindedness,characteristics important in a at, horizontally organized institution like a university. This isthe leadership that I try to exercise in UE andso far it has served me well.
Dr. Ma. Cristina D. Padolina
Centro Escolar University 
1. My experience in UP, both as a studentand as an educator, has left me with a drivetowards excellence. As president of CEU, thesame drive informs my work of inspiring,challenging, and leading CEU to excel, andtherefore be recognized as one of the leading higher education institutions in the country.My time in UP has also made me muchmore resourceful, critical, and holistic; virtuesthat I nd very useful both in my job of running a university, and as a human being.2 & 3. I personally believe that eachuniversity has its own unique role, andtherefore I don’t aim to make CEU like UP,because there can be no other UP just likethere can be no other CEU. That said, I do believe that what is mostimportant for any institute of higher learning is a good faculty, and that is what I aim todo at CEU. We have been developing andimplementing a responsive staff recruitmentand development program to attract,encourage, as well as challenge the CEU faculty. We are also trying to create an environment fora robust research culture and activity to grow in the university.4. My time in U.P. has taught me that hard work and persistence, as well as an orientationtowards excellence, are key to achieving one’sgoals. As CEU president I try to instill these valuable lessons with the people I work with,Dr. Ester Albano Garcia has a degree inChemistry from UP and a Ph.D. in Chemistry from the Ohio State University. She was aFellow at the ICN Nucleic Acid ResearchInstitute in California, and an InternationalResearch Fellow at Syracuse University. Shehas taught in U.P. and served under a numberof administrative positions including that of  Vice-Chancellor (UPD), Vice-President, andChairperson of the Board of Regents. As aresearcher, she published 20 scientic papersin peer-reviewed journals of national andinternational circulation and has written at least125 other papers on various issues related toscience, education, technology, environment,and gender.
Dr. Teresita L. Salva
Palawan State University 
1. My UP background has prepared me well for my role as PSU president. It has mademe fearless and resolute in pursuing the goals we have set to transform PSU into one of thebest universities in the country. It has alsotaught me the value of cooperation among peers, which is why my stewardship is based onthe power of synergistic governance.2 & 3. UP has remained a role model inpursuing excellence in all aspects of campuslife particularly in instruction, research, andextension for students, faculty, and staff. Ilikewise dream of making the same true forPSU, transforming it to a university community  where the learning and living become one inthe same. I am condent that, when my stewardship is up, I shall have done enough toset PSU on that course.4. My UP background compels me tostrive towards excellence, and it is something that I try to develop among the people I work  with and serve. I put a premium to those whohave the passion for excellence, and I aim tomake excellence a way of life for everyone inPSU.Dr. Salva was president of PSU twice. Herrst appointment was as OIC president, Nov.12, 1990 to March 7, 1991, and her second, June 4, 1999 to June 3, 2003, then June 3, 2003to present. Her term has been extended up to June 3, 2011.in that way, I believe, every one of us can makea difference.Dr. Padolina has a degree in ChemicalEngineering from UP, an MS in Chemistry from Ateneo de Manila University, and a Ph.D.in Inorganic Chemistry from the University of Texas in Austin. She has served as theCommissioner of the Commission on HigherEducation, Chancellor of the UP OpenUniversity, and Director of the Institute of Chemistry, U.P. Los Baños. She is currently president of CEU and a Professor Emeritusat UP.He devoted more than 40 years of his life as anacademician and engineering consultant.Last March, two more professorial chairs were inaugurated—the Pozzolanic ProfessorialChair in Engineering and the Enrique andElena Ostrea UP Centennial ProfessorialChair in Mining, Metallurgical and MaterialsEngineering (MMME).On 04 March 2008, Pozzolanic Philippines,Inc., represented by its president Mr. David A.Peabody, attended the signing of the deed of donation held at the Board of Regents BoardRoom. Present at the affair were Dr. LornaI. Paredes, Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs; Dean Guevara: Brendan Murphy, Timothy Schroeder, and Benette Consolacionof Pozzolanic Phils; Mr. Felipe F. Cruz;Department Chairmen Dr. Virginia J.

PAA Northern California (Berkeley)Chapter president Alexis Zuluetapresented the chapter’s rst professorial chairendowment to University of the PhilippinesPresident Emerlinda R. Roman in a meeting atthe latter’s ofce in UP Diliman on February 15, 2008.Roman noted that the $30,000 donationcame from the rst-ever alumni chapterestablished outside of the Philippines. Withpride, Zulueta responded that the Berkeley chapter is continuing its commitment to assistthe University’s faculty by raising funds for asecond professorial chair endowment.In a letter accompanying the donation,Zulueta acknowledged immediate pastpresident Romi Beza, philanthropist JulieZarate-Hudson, and Madrigal Concertchair Henry Torres, among others, for their valuable contribution in raising funds for thechapter’s rst professorial chair endowmentfund. It was under Beza’s term that $35,000 was pledged by chapter members—led by  Julie Zarate-Hudson—and over $22,000 wascollected. Additionally, Beza and his boardof directors laid the foundation for the very successful Madrigal Singers concert that Henry eventually implemented during the start of Zulueta’s term and from which an additional$15,000 was raised. The chapter’s secondprofessorial chair endowment therefore now is about one-third complete.by

The check was given to PresidentRoman by Delta Lambda Sigma Alumnae Association President Lilia Coritana-Casanovaand witnessed by Deltan Sisters VictoriaBello-Jardiolin, Clarita Ravina, Lilia Nuqui-

She also expressedthe hope that this generous gesture will beduplicated by other sororities in the University. The alumnae Deltans present at the meeting assured the UP President that they will continueto support the projects of the UP as a way of expressing their gratitude for the nurturing andeducation the University provided during theirstudent days. Witnesses to the historic event includedPresident Emerlinda Roman, Chair of theUP Board of Regents Romulo Neri, Regents Abraham Sarmiento, Nelia Gonzalez, RomuloDavide, Ponciano Rivera, Francis Chua, Faculty Regent Felix Librero, and Student RegentShahana Abdulwahid; former UP President Jose V. Abueva; the UP vice presidents and thesecretary of the University and the Board; thechancellors; other University System ofcialsand ofcials of the constituents units; faculty members, student leaders, and alumni. Thenational government was represented by severalmembers of the Cabinet, and by members of the Senate and the House of Representatives,led by Speaker Prospero Nograles, SenatorEdgardo Angara, and the law’s chief sponsorsSenator Francis Pangilinan from the Senateand Representative and Regent Cynthia Villarfrom the House. After working for the law’s enactment, theUP administration enjoins the UP community to work even harder to implement the new law. To dispel false hopes and avoid wrong interpretations of the law, it has scheduled aninformation dissemination campaign whichstarts rst week of June, when the facultand students shall have come back from their vacation. The new UP charter replaces the UPcharter of 1908, which had been deemedobsolete despite many amendments. Enacting a new UP charter was seen as urgent during the administration of Edgardo J. Angara Jr.in the mid-1980s when consultations weremade to propose revisions to the University Code, but the UP charter issue only reachedCongress during the term of President Jose Abueva from the late 1980s to the early 1990s, when senators felt a need to review the charter. Abueva formed a Charter Review Committee which conducted several consultations on theneed to draft a new UP charter. It was during the term of President Emil Q. Javier whenUP was able to come up with a draft charterfor presentation to Congress. The term of President Francisco Nemenzo, from 1999 toearly 2005, saw several draft charters being proposed by many representatives and senatorsand more consultations with the many UPstakeholders were made, resulting in the needto modify and reconcile several provisions. Anew UP charter came closest to enactmentduring the 13
th
Congress when the bill— already reconciled versions of the House’sand the Senate’s—missed being ratied by theHouse, for lack of quorum. Thus, when the14th Congress started in 2007, the time wasripe for the passage of a UP charter bill.
