UP Alumni Association Davao chairman Nap Concepcion visited Chancellor Lyre Murao on 16 March 2022 to present the design for the proposed Balay Alumni on the UP Mindanao campus. Former chancellor Sylvia Concepcion accompanied the chairman who was received by the chancellor and her vice-chancellors, Prof. Annabelle Novero and Asst. Prof. Leo Estana, and executive assistant Allan Villanueva.
The “Kakawlai” design concept was the winning entry in the competition staged by the UPAAD for the UP Mindanao BS Architecture students. However, elements from the other entries are being considered to be included in the Balay Alumni. The UPAAD hopes to secure the support of the UP Mindanao administration for the eventual approval of the proposal by the UP Board of Regents.
