UP Tacloban celebrates its 49th founding anniversary

UP Tacloban is celebrating its 49th founding anniversary on 23 May 2022 with the theme “Pagbuslak han Katahum,” which is a translation into Waray of “breaking into grace,” a line from Victor Sugbo’s poem “Continuities.”

We are celebrating the grace of flourishing amidst the pandemic and super typhoons, economic instability, and socio-political upheavals — a flourishing that is evident in our teaching, research, and public service projects with our students and alumni, faculty and staff, and partner communities and organizations.

Our anniversary activities include fora with students and staff on coping with stress and anxiety in the post-election context, organized by the Office of Student Affairs and Division of Social Sciences; an anniversary video presentation and sportsfest organized by the Division of Humanities; a Balik Scientist exit report presentation hosted by the Leyte Samar Heritage Center and Division of Management; a virtual open mic led by the UPVTC Student Council; and the 10th Annual Conference on Environmental Science organized by the Division of Natural Sciences and Mathematics.

Join us in celebrating 49 years of breaking into grace.
