New UP campus to rise inside Clark Green City

CLARK FREEPORT — The state-owned Bases Conversion and Development Authority and the University of the Philippines (UP) signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) recently that will pave the way for the establishment of a UP global campus in Clark Green City.
BCDA president and Chief Executive Officer Arnel Paciano Casanova and UP President Alfredo Pascual signed the MOA in simple rites held at the Board of Regents (BOR) Room at the UP Administration Building in Diliman, Quezon City.
Joining them in the panel were UP Vice President Elvira Zamora, UP Vice president Gisella Concepcion, BCDA Director Zorayda Alonzo, BCDA Executive Vice President and BCDA Vice-President Jake Bingcang, among other members of the BCDA corporate family.
The new University of the Philippines campus will rise on a 70-hectare area and is envisioned to position the Clark Green City as the “brain capital” of the Central Luzon region.
BCDA believes that a strong country relies on the presence of an enlightened and educated citizenship. Through this partnership, BCDA expresses its commitment to helping UP achieve leadership in higher excellence and fuel social transformation and change in the Philippines.
