The NHA team explained their P25 to P50 million packages for land development or housing construction options and the beneficiary agency counterparting. The UP Mindanao administration, led by Chancellor Lyre Anni Murao and Vice-Chancellor for Administration Leo Manuel Estana, welcomed the offer and expressed interest in pursuing housing and dormitory projects for university constituents, campus informal settlers, and indigenous peoples in the UP land reservations.  The university intends to pursue the development projects for the three constituencies in parallel efforts. The Campus Planning and Development Office, headed by Asst. Prof. Architect Jean Marie Juanga, was designated to lead the project developments.  The projects align with the UP's strategic plan for good governance, UPMin's pillars for welfare and resources, and the Sustainable Development Goals for sustainable communities and other goals.
