Message of Chancellor Larry N. Digal to continuing students

Welcome back, students. I hope you were able to rest and recover from the challenges we all faced last semester. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all of us in myriad ways and brought many changes in the manner of how we traditionally do things in the academe. This pandemic upended higher education as we know it and profoundly affected educational institutions, including the University of the Philippines. The First Semester became a testing ground for the delivery of new learning ideas and methods and we all gained lessons from the experiences of the First Semester. From these lessons, we will continue to improve and develop ways and means to make this transition to remote learning as easy as possible for you. A foremost concern is your safety and protection as we go through another semester of remote learning. I would like to reiterate the commitment of the UP System to provide learning assistance to students who are in need, but let me take this opportunity to appeal for patience and understanding in any delays in receiving this assistance. There are also challenges in the delivery of these learning assistance packages due to the pandemic. The Second Semester will also usher in new ways of delivering student services through our virtual outlets with the goal of giving students a bridge of communication for any assistance that UP Mindanao can provide you. Rest assured that you are not alone in this journey. Our UP Mindanao administration, including your professors and instructors, are here to provide support and guidance. Please do not hesitate to let us know. We will be more than willing to assist you. On behalf of the UP Mindanao community, I wish you good health and a safe and productive semester.
