Following intensive deliberations, including interviews with the six nominees for the next President of the University of the Philippines (UP), the UP Board of Regents (BOR) announced today their unanimous selection of the next leader of the country’s national university: Atty. Angelo A. Jimenez, former UP Regent.

Atty. Jimenez will serve as the University’s 22nd President, succeeding the current UP President, Professor Danilo L. Concepcion, whose term will end in February 2023. Jimenez will serve a six-year term from February 2023 to February 2029.

Atty. Angelo Jimenez is an Of counsel with the Jaromay Laurente and Associates and a consultant of the Office of Rep. Pablo John F. Garcia. He served on the Board of Regents twice, first as a Student Regent in 1992, and again as a Regent from 2016 to 2021. He was a lecturer at the UP Law Center Institute of the Administration of Justice from 2016 to 2021; and a consultant of the UP Centre International de Formation des Autorites et Leaders or International Training Center for Authorities and Leaders Philippines (UP-CIFAL Philippines). He was also a trustee of the UP Foundation from 2017 to 2021.

Atty. Jimenez earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology in 1987, and his Bachelor of Laws degree in 1994, both in UP Diliman. He passed the Bar in 1994. He was a Lee Kuan Yew Fellow of the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. He earned his Masters in Public Management from the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore. Among the many awards he has received is the Outstanding Butuanon Award for Professional Excellence.

In his vision paper, Jimenez stated that UP “must strive to become a global university”. Specifically, UP must lead as a research university by focusing on graduate and post-graduate programs and academic linkages; and as a public service university through extension service to the government and industry. UP must also advocate for an Open Data Policy. UP must likewise help raise the quality of undergraduate education in other SUCs, embrace digital transformation in learning and management, defend and enhance academic freedom in UP.

As UP President, Jimenez will serve as the Chief Academic Officer, Head of the University Faculty, and Chief Executive Officer. He will be tasked with pursuing goals stated in Republic Act No. 9500 or the UP Charter.

Several alumni batches of the University of the Philippines High School in Iloilo (UPHSI) kickstarted the donations and pledges to the UP Visayas Adopt-A-Room Project of the Office of the Chancellor during its launching on Nov. 29.

Headlined by the class of 1986, the UPHSI alumni donors include the classes of 1970 and 1974, 1986 (separate pledge), iAmUPHi, and retired Court of Appeals Justice Edward Contreras.

The project donors were represented by Mr. Jose Ian Cababasay and Ms. Cosette Canilao (1986), Dr. Marovi Celis (1970/ iAmUPHi), Ms. Irma Lim (1974/iAmUPHi), Jennifer Mae Luison (iAmUPHi), and Ms. Loise Jamolo (1986).

According to Vice Chancellor for Planning and Development (VCPD) Dr. Rhodella Ibabao, the Adopt-A-Room Project aims to provide a more conducive learning and working environment for students, faculty, and staff.

“The donors are encouraged to support existing rooms of UPV that are in need of upgrading, renovation, and refurbishment,” she said.

The types of rooms for adoption are lecture rooms, chemistry laboratory, psychology room, computer laboratory, wet laboratory, social science laboratory, and humanities laboratory.

During the project launching, a signing of the Deed of Donation between UPHSI class of 1986, represented by Cababasay, and UPV, represented by Chancellor Clement Camposano and VCPD Ibabao, was signed.

Camposano emphasized collaborations, saying that UPV’s alumni are “our natural ally in this new strategic direction.”

UPV welcomes donations from generous individuals, UPV alumni, and groups.

Interested individuals may contact the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Planning and Development at (033) 315-8137 or the Office of Alumni Relations at (033) 336-8837 or e-mail [email protected] or [email protected] (With sources from OVCDP)
