     The University of the Philippines Baguio (UPB) hosted another leg of a people’s summit dubbed “The Baguio We Want” on August 31 at the Bulwagang Juan Luna.

 

     Organized by Baguio Bishop Carlito Cenzon together with the Baguio Diocese, Baguio Heritage Foundation, Baguio Citizens’ No waste Initiative, Maryknoll Ecological Sanctuary, Pine Cone Movement, Save 182, and Tongtongan ti Umili,   this people’s summit was a continuation of the summit held last February 25, 2015.

 

     The agenda of the summit was to get achievement reports from different clusters regarding issues raised on the previous summit. These issues are: citizen participation in elections; environmental problems such as protection of trees and water resources, and proper waste management; strict enforcement of land use and zoning policies; and awareness in heritage preservation.

 

     “Don’t stop with just identifying the problems, but also identify solutions,” Karlo Altomonte, co-convenor of the summit, said.

 

     Three simultaneous workshops were held after the report and these were on “The Electoral Process and the Government Leaders We Want in 2016,” How to Engage the Government and Participate in Governance,” and “Increasing Support and Participation for the Baguio We Want.”

 

     Dr. Raymundo D. Rovillos, UPB chancellor, facilitated one of the workshops.

 

     “UP, being a national university, should be involved on the issues affecting the city that hosts us. We are part of the city. We cannot be isolated from it so we have to be engaged in society,” he said.

 

     The event ended with the participants giving out Baguio We Want publication booklets in a walk rally from UPB to People’s Park. More than 200 concerned citizens attended the event.   

 

     "Stories of participation are always uplifting because they have been our hopes for the future," said Bishop Cenzon. (JOYCE PASCUA/LOUISE MANIEGO)

    

“We, the people of Baguio, want a city where residents’ well-being is paramount, where governance is built on genuine consultation with, and active and continuous participation of the people.” So begins the People’s Statement, a document that will be launched and freely distributed on August 31, 2015, at 9:00 A.M. in the University of the Philippines auditorium, or Bulwagang Juan Luna, in a citizens’ event dubbed “Pushing for the Baguio We Want.” The event is open to all concerned residents, youth, and multi-sectoral representatives in the city.

 

Aside from the launching of the People’s Statement and the Baguio We Want Agenda, three simultaneous workshops will be held at “Pushing for the Baguio We Want” (PBWW). In the workshop on “The Electoral Process and the Government Leaders We Want in 2016”, participants will set a concrete criteria against which voters can measure local politicians. Courses of action for clean elections will be discussed. In the workshop on “How to Engage the Government and Participate in Governance,” tips will be shared on how to make citizens’ voices heard by government, how to communicate with different government units, and how and where to get public information. Finally, in the workshop on “Increasing Support and Participation for the Baguio We Want”, the focus will be on generating mass support for the principles set forth in the People’s Statement.

 

PBWW is a follow-up to the successful People’s Summit held last February 25, 2015, which saw over 500 participants gathering to discuss the future of the city. At the People’s Summit, participants responded to the questions, “What do we want?” and “What can we do?” in ten (10) cluster workshops on Heritage, Community Participation, Governance and Legislation, Well-being and Mobility, Land Use and Zoning, Baguio-La Trinidad-Itogon-Sablan-Tuba-Tublay (BLISTT), Local Businesses and Tourism, Waste Management, Air and Noise Pollution, and Trees and Water. The results of these workshops will be presented at PWWB. Representatives from active clusters will report on concrete actions taken so far, and plans for the future.

 

Bishop Carlito Cenzon stands as the convenor of both the People’s Summit and PBWW. PBWW is free and open to the public. Baguio boys and girls of all ages, students, and registered voters are strongly encouraged to participate.

 

 

Profile

     Established through the initiative of UP alumni in Baguio and Benguet, the University of the Philippines in Baguio was inaugurated as a degree-granting unit of the University on 22 April 1961. A land grant worked out by alumni, the City Council, and by then UP President Vicente Cinco situated the College on its present location, a pine-clad hill offering a scenic view of Baguio. The College went on to make its presence felt as it served as the site of the National Arts Festivals in the coming years. Moves were made to strengthen its research capabilities, culminating in the institution of the Cordillera Studies Center in 1983. Directions towards autonomy began with strategic planning in 1996. The following years saw the College working assiduously in the reformulation and strengthening of its academic programs, primarily. Administration of the College likewise oversaw the development in infrastructure and improvement of services and facilities. Such growth led to the elevation of UP College Baguio to full autonomous status, granted by the Board of Regents in December 2002. UP Baguio is now the seventh constituent university of the UP System.


Vision

     As a constituent university of the University of the Philippines System, U.P. Baguio will sustain its lead position in the delivery of tertiary education in the north.

    It will continue to nurture and develop innovative programs in the arts and sciences. It will also continue to develop the niche it has created over the past decades in Cordillera Studies.


Mission

     Our mission, therefore, as a unit of the U.P. System and as the leading institution of higher learning in Northern Luzon, is to spearhead the offering of the highest standard of education and to contribute to the overall upgrading of the quality of instruction in the region.

     We seek to create an impact by informing our programs with a regional perspective, at the same time that these are informed by a national and global outlook.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The BS Computer Science program, which was instituted in 1996, trains students to become experts in many areas of theoretical computer science. Graduates have become highly skilled in software development and system analysis.
