University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman Chancellor Edgardo Carlo Vistan II paid a visit to the UP College of Mass Communication (CMC) on Friday, April 28 to celebrate the 35th anniversary of CMC’s elevation as a college.
The event was a chance for faculty and staff to connect with the Chancellor. CMC Dean Fernando Paragas also briefly discussed the College’s objectives, on-going projects, and needs to Vistan.
During the visit, Vistan shared his commitment to supporting the College and its students. “I look forward to helping you address [your concerns]. After all, we’re just near each other: your office and our office,” the Chancellor said.
“This will not be the only time we will do this. Just let me know if you need to talk to me, whether in smaller groups or as a community,” he added.
He also discussed the College’s popular programs and explored ways to expand its intake. “Let’s talk about that because the population of the Philippines is not getting any smaller. And we do need to provide our students, our youth more options for making a living.”
Paragas also toured Vistan around CMC.
