Chancellor Lyre Anni Murao was sworn into office as one of the members of the Board of Trustees of the Davao Colleges & Universities Network (DACUN) in an oath-taking ceremony administered by Davao City Councilor Pilar Braga during the DACUN Annual General Assembly held at the Philippine Women's College (PWC) of Davao on July 14, 2022.
In her remarks, Chancellor Murao thanked Councilor Braga, saying, "Your presence here shows your continued support for educational endeavors."
To her fellow educators, she said, "Listening to our activity this afternoon, there's one word that sticks out and that is commitment. Commitment to quality education and sustaining that kind of education that has never changed and that will still remain the same. Yet at the same time, as we move to the new academic year, we’re all facing these new challenges that we are all excited about, and looking forward to that, because we are exploring new mindsets, new strategies, new modalities, and new experiences."
"This has been an opportunity for all of us to rekindle our relationships here in the DACUN family and establish new relationships," she said. "I’m new in this family, but I really felt welcomed by our colleagues in the team. Thank you for welcoming me," she said.
Outgoing DACUN president, PWC's Prof. Vicente Antonio Pijano, pointed out the continuing activities of DACUN throughout the pandemic in his president's report. This theme of the constant activity was echoed in the subsequent committee reports and plans, as well.
The DACUN is presently composed of Assumption College of Davao, Ateneo de Davao U., Brokenshire College, Davao Doctors College, Holy Cross of Davao College, Rizal Memorial Colleges, San Pedro College, PWC of Davao, University of the Immaculate Conception, University of Mindanao, University of Southeastern Philippines, and the University of the Philippines Mindanao.
