To help UPMin in the holistic development of its students, the UP Alumni Association Davao has volunteered to rehabilitate the Masjid on the UPMin campus. Funds for the rehabilitation will be raised through donations. This initiative aims to promote its use by members of the UP Mindanao Association of Muslim Students (UPMAMS) and other Muslim students. Moreover, the Masjid contributes to UPMin's differentiation among UP campuses, Mindanao being the home of the Bangsamoro. The Masjid was constructed by elements of the Philippine Army during their tenure in the area before the site's conversion into the UPMin campus. The rehabilitation will place it among the prominent campus landmarks, alongside the Oblation, the Kublai sculptures, and the Sports Complex. For this, UPMin and the UPAAD held a ceremonial signing of a Memorandum of Agreement for the rehabilitation of the UPMin Masjid in a board meeting on August 12, 2023. UPAAD President Pedro "Bogs" Quitain III (seated left in the above photo) and UPMin Chancellor Lyre Anni Murao (seated third from left) led the ceremonial signing witnessed by UPMAMS head Sittie Asia Marohom of BS Anthropology 2023 (seated second from left), and UPAAD Vice-President Bai Ashrafia Aymee Biruar-Mitmug. UPAAD directors who were present and witnesses to the ceremonial signing were (standing, left-right) Dr. Khalil Guinomla, UPAAD chairperson Nap Concepcion, Ana Gualberto, assistant secretary Rene Estremera, and (online) Marie Glenn Sorila, Krishna Balaga, and Brian Good.
