It is with deep sadness that we inform the UPV community of the passing of Dr. Jose Ali F. Bedaño, former Dean of the School of Technology, last Wednesday, August 25, 2021.
Prior to the establishment of SOTECH, Dr. Bedaño was initially a faculty member of the College of Arts and Sciences and served as CAS College Secretary. When STER was founded and eventually became SOTECH, he served as an administrator for many years not only as Dean but also as School Secretary. He was also one of the pioneer faculty members of the Chemical Engineering program. He was a beloved friend, colleague, and mentor not only to students but also to the junior faculty members. A father figure in the School, he will be remembered for his tireless dedication as an educator to countless students.
The School of Technology and the University extends its condolences to the family of Dr. Bedaño.
