On Friday, June 23, 2023, the University of the Philippines Alumni Association (UPAA) Cebu Chapter marked a significant moment with the induction of its new Board of Trustees.

The new board was formally sworn in by Chancellor Malagar. The newly-inducted President, Marylou “Lotlot” Labrador-Neri, graciously accepted her role, delivering an acceptance speech that inspired hope and promise for the tenure of the new board. Both Labrador-Neri, who studied Bachelor of Business Management, and Chancellor Malagar, who studied Political Science, are from the UP Cebu Class of 1991.
The alumni association plays a pivotal role in the development of UP Cebu, supporting the institution through various initiatives that aim to enrich the campus, bolster its programs, and strengthen the bond among its alumni. The new board is expected to uphold this tradition and help realize the vision-mission of UP Cebu as expressed by and under the leadership of Chancellor Leo Malagar.
Key matters such as the provision of Sablays during graduation, turnover of documents, and the status of the Alumni office were discussed during the meeting. The event was brought to a close with inspiring remarks by Dr. Bryan Albert Lim (UP Cebu BS Biology Class of 2005), Vice President of the UPAA Cebu Chapter.
With the induction of the new board, the UPAA Cebu Chapter is embarking on a new journey of contributing to the growth and development of UP Cebu.
