U.P. Diliman professors condemn Davao bombing, call for justice
The University Council, composed of all professors, associate professors, and assistant professors, is the highest academic policy-making body of the autonomous U.P. constituent unit.
(Anyone who has attended a meeting of the University Council would probably compare it to a deliberative body composed of 200 republics –– the number of independent-minded and articulate faculty members in attendance at any given time.) (Prepare to be grilled in a coliseum of academics when you stand up there to present a proposal.). This body is not easy to sway.
Last Monday, this statement of condemnation of the Davao bombing was written on-the-spot (by the UC Committee on National Issues) and approved by the U.P. Diliman University Council presided over by Chancellor Michael Tan, PhD, in a matter of minutes.
