2022 112422 FEU 01The University of the Philippines Mindanao (UPMin) and the Far Eastern University (FEU) carried out their first successful collaboration on November 24-25, 2022, with the 1st FRAMEwork Asia-Pacific Communication Conference on the theme, "Disruptions and (re)constructions in the time of COVID-19: Turning the gaze on the Global South."
 The conference, through its theme, assembled researchers and their papers on communication, Information and Communication Technology (ICT), social media, and the intersections with entertainment, digital markets, emerging digital bureaucracy, media, politics, disinformation, online relationships, fatigue and coping, pedagogy, community advocacies, and the pandemic death and survival narratives.       
 UPMin’s Assoc. Prof. Karen Joyce Cayamanda (Department of Humanities) joined the Roundtable Discussion on Day 2 on the topic, “Moving forward: Communication and media practices post-pandemic.”  Prof. Cayamanda brings to the discussion the wealth of UPMin’s forums and studies on communication, health, disaster, risk communication, and related topics that were undertaken during the time of COVID-19 in 2019-2022.
 UPMin’s Asst. Prof. Ma. Teresa Escano (Humanities) likewise served as a juror in the Best Paper Competition.  
 This initial collaboration was formalized through a memorandum of understanding signed by UPMin Chancellor Lyre Anni E. Murao and FEU President Dr. Michael M. Alba on October 21, 2022. The MOU stipulated that the two higher education institutions aim "to create, encourage, and develop a harmonious relationship through the exchange, collaboration, and mutual development of programs for students, faculty members, and academic personnel through research conferences, seminars and workshops, and special lectures.”
 “This conference is truly relevant and responsive to the present time,” said Chancellor Murao in her remarks. “As we emerge from this pandemic, our learnings and experiences propel us to greater heights as a nation and as a global community. Our pandemic experience has opened up opportunities to rethink and relearn, and I am sure it has spurred exciting scholarly inquiry and reexamination in the field of communication,” she said.
