Written by Rene Estremera. Posted in Announcements

In the aftermath of the Mindanao earthquakes, the UP Mindanao Pahinungod announced its donation drive for relief, rehabilitation, and reconstruction. Donations will be accepted through the UP Strategic Research and Management Foundation with address at School of Management Building, UP Mindanao, Mintal, Davao City, with tel. no. (+63 82)295-2188. Donations may be deposited to Rizal Commercial Banking Corporation (RCBC)-CM Recto, Davao City Branch, Account No. 1522601256 with Swift code RBCPHMM. Further inquiries may be directed to UP Mindanao Pahinungod through 09196398805 (Smart), 09451076756 or 09674194345 (Globe/TM), or by private message to https://www.facebook.com/upmindanao.pahinungod.  

Earlier, EVP Herbosa announced that UP Foundation, Inc. will also receive donations from members of the UP community who expressed their willingness to help. Local donors can pay to Union Bank of the Philippines-Commonwealth branch, savings account no. 102270018964, and donors from abroad may pay to Philippine National Bank-UP Campus branch, savings account no. 108660029835, with PNB Swift Code: PNBmPHmm. 

UP executive vice president Teodoro Herbosa created the Mindanao Earthquake Response Team chaired by vice-president for public affairs Elena Pernia while UP Mindanao chancellor Larry Digal created the counterpart Task Force that initiated a donation drive and sent volunteers to help repack relief goods in the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).  

On 8 November the first UP team composed of geologists and the UP Mindanao Task Force arrived in Sitio Flortam, Barangay Batasan in hard-hit Makilala municipality. The geologists, led by Dr. Alfredo Mahar Lagmay and accompanied by mathematician Dr. Genaro Cuaresma, had their first close look at cracks in the road and the landscape. While on site, the UP Mindanao team established relations with the comminuty by turning-over some donations to the local residents led by sitio leader Francisco Miguel. At the Office of the Provincial Governor in Kidapawan City, the team met with Acting Governor Emmylou Taliño-Mendoza and Acting Vice Governor Shirlyn Macasarte-Villanueva, who had previously written UP president Danilo Concepcion, to request structural and geological assessments, and psychosocial support for trauma victims. Over the next two days the UP group inspected barangays Kisante, Batasan, Buenavida, Sto. Niño, Buhay and Malasila, and took a helicopter fly-by over Bgy. Bato, all in Makilala. Before departing, they shared assessments with the Incident Management Team and the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PhiVolcs) team and vice-governor Villanueva.   “Four barangays in Makilala suffered 100% damage,” said Dr. Cuaresma. “Resettlement is the only prospect for those families whose homesites are now uninhabitable,” he said.

Fifteen beginning writers from different parts of Mindanao completed their fellowship in the 2019 Davao Writers Workshop held at the Casa Leticia Hotel, Davao City. The Davao Writers Guild conducted the tenth installation of the workshop in partnership with the University of the Philippines Mindanao. Selected from more than a hundred applicants, the writing fellows attended a series of discussions on how to improve their stories, poems, essays, and a play with a panel of writers and literature instructors. This year’s fellows are Renner Sasil from Iligan City; Khamille Ann Linsag from Mati City; Sean Jhon Anecio from Dapitan City; Chris John Reeve de la Torre from Dapa, Surigao del Norte; Hanna Joy Luyao from Cagayan de Oro City; David Madriaga from Isulan, Sultan Kudarat; Mary Divine Escleto from General Santos City; Marielle Angela Pagoto from Tagum of City; Sunshine Angcos, Marylie Noran from Digos City; Jasmin Arcega, Samaira Guro, Tara Yakob Montiflor, Raphael Luis Salise, and Liane Carlo Suelan from Davao City.

The panelists who led the sessions were Lualhati Abreu, John Bengan, Nathaniel Go, Michael Aaron Gomez, Errol Merquita, Reil Obinque, Jay Jomar Quintos, Macario Tiu, Lakan Umali, Ria Valdez, and Farah Virador.    

Conferences

The University of the Philippines (UP) Mindanao will hold two conferences in November in Davao City, Pag-aboll 2019: Facets of Mindanao on 7–8 November 2019 at the Apo View Hotel and the 9 th International Conference on Agribusiness Economics and Management (ICAEM) on 13–15 November 2019 at the Waterfront Insular Hotel. Pag-aboll 2019, organized by the College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHSS), aims to contribute to the shaping and reshaping of Mindanao discourse by bringing scholars and learners from the diverse fields of architecture, humanities, human kinetics, and social sciences together to share histories, perspectives, narratives, and creations of Mindanao. “In Pag-aboll, one discipline can learn from another, especially in issues, concerns, and also in methods of conducting research,” said CHSS dean Jean Marie Juanga. “Pag-aboll” is the Mandaya word for “weaving.” The conference keynote speakers are Mindanao studies scholar and author Lualhati Abreu of UP Mindanao, poet-author and professor emeritus Marjorie Pernia of De La Salle University, risk communication specialist Rotacio Gravoso of Visayas State University, heritage architect Gerard Lico of UP Diliman, and sports director Jose Alther Rivera of the University of Southeastern Philippines. The conference will feature 25 papers to be presented by various scholars on Mindanao studies.

ICAEM 2019, co-organized by the School of Management (SOM) and the Center for the Advancement of Research, development, and engagement in Mindanao (CARIM), will have the theme “Inclusivity, Innovation, and Sustainability in Agricultural Value Chains” and will convene international scholars and practitioners in the areas of agriculture, agribusiness, management, and economics to share researches that deal with issues affecting various nodes in the agri-food chains. The conference is supported with funding from the UP Office of International Linkages and sponsored by the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR). “ICAEM is about strengthening our research program on the economics of agricultural value chains. Because of that research we are able to develop ideas that can be used that will feed into further research or policy and for other researchers to develop the research program network,” said conference convenor and UP Mindanao chancellor Larry Digal. The keynote speaker of the conference is Rodolfo Nayga Jr., distinguished professor of policy economics and agribusiness from the University of Arkansas, United States. The conference will also feature plenary talks from our international speakers: Grow Asia executive director Grahame Dixie from Singapore, International Rice Research Institute researcher Rica Joy Flor who is doing research in Cambodia, ACIAR program manager for agriculture Howard Hall from Australia, and agricultural economist and RMIT industry fellow Kenneth Menz from Australia. The conference will feature 84 paper and poster presentations and estimated to be attended by over 120 participants. Conference sponsor ACIAR will also launch its storybook G’day, Mate: ACIAR Filipino Alumni Stories during the first day of the conference. By hosting these two conferences, UP Mindanao is fulfilling its mandate to serve as a research university, particularly in the research areas of Mindanao studies and sustainable agri- and biosystems, by promoting research among higher education institutions in Mindanao and the rest of the country and contributing to the dissemination and application of knowledge. Both conferences are endorsed by the Commission on Higher Education. For more information on Pag-aboll 2019, visit http://bit.ly/2MG3cQU; and for ICAEM 2019, visit http://bit.ly/2MFbA34

Earthquake response

The University of the Philippines (UP) combined its expertise in science and public service with a unified response within a week after the Mindanao earthquakes of October 2019. In the aftermath of the earthquakes, the DSWD website reported that Regions XI and XII had 24,000 displaced persons in evacuation centers and another 7,465 outside evacuation centers with a total of 188,533 affected persons.

UP executive vice president Teodoro Herbosa immediately created the Mindanao Earthquake Response Team and UP Mindanao chancellor Larry Digal created the counterpart Task Force.  UP Mindanao Task Force initiated a donation drive and sent volunteers to help repack relief goods in the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).  
On 8 November, a UP team of geologists and the UP Mindanao Task Force arrived in Sitio Flortam, Barangay Batasan in hard-hit Makilala municipality. The geologists, led by Dr. Alfredo Mahar Lagmay and Dr. Genaro Cuaresma, had their first close look at cracks in the road and the landscape and the UP Mindanao team delivered donations to the local residents. At the Office of the Provincial Governor in Kidapawan City, the team met Acting Governor Emmylou Taliño-Mendoza and Acting Vice Governor Shirlyn Macasarte-Villanueva, who had previously written UP president Danilo Concepcion, to request structural and geological assessments, and psychosocial support for trauma victims.

UP breaks into top 500 in world rankings, 2019

Written by Rene Estremera. Posted in Announcements

London-based magazine Times Higher Education (THE) has placed the University of the Philippines in the world’s top 500 universities and fourth in the ASEAN region, according to the 2020 THE World University Rankings.The national university is listed in the 401-500 group of 1,396 ranked research universities.

This is UP’s fourth year in the rankings. It was included for the first time in 2017 among the top 1,000. The succeeding rankings showed marked improvement for UP as it climbed to the top 800 in the 2018 edition and to the top 600 for 2019.

THE assesses research-intensive universities based on 13 performance indicators in five pillars: teaching (30 percent), research (30 percent), research influence/citations (30 percent), international outlook (7.5 percent) and industry income (2.5 percent).

For 2020, UP has been ranked 159th in citations which places it in the top 11 percent of prestigious universities that have “influence in spreading new knowledge and ideas.” Its score in citations went up from last year’s 69.1 to 86.9. As indicator of research influence, 'citations' refers to the average number of times a university’s published work is cited by scholars globally. This year, THE's bibliometric data supplier Elsevier examined 77.4 million citations to 12.8 million journal articles, article reviews, conference proceedings, books and book chapters published over five years. The data include more than 23,400 academic journals indexed by Elsevier’s Scopus database and all indexed publications between 2014 and 2018. Citations to these publications made in the six years from 2014 to 2019 are also collected.

UP also scored better in teaching (from 21.7 to 24.1), research (from 16.4 to 17.2) and industry income (from 35.8 to 39.4). A global academic reputation survey partly determines the scores for teaching and research.UP, however, slipped in international outlook, with its score down from 39.5 to 37.9. International outlook considers the number of international students and staff as well as international collaboration.Only two universities from the Philippines appeared in the latest table. UP is still the leading university in the country.

THE publishes some of the most influential rankings used by the global academic community which include the Asia University Rankings, Asia-Pacific University Rankings, Emerging Economies University Rankings,  World University Rankings by Subject and Impact Rankings.

4 October 2019 - University of the Philippines Mindanao received top awards during the 9th Health Research and Development Expo competitions organized by the Regional Health Research and Development Consortium-XI held on 3-4 October 2019 in Davao City. For the Qualitative Research – Professional/Graduate category, Assistant Professor Kenette Jean Millondaga of the Department of Social Sciences won 1st place for her paper "Women and 'madness' in peasant communities in North Cotabato, Mindanao." Professor Millondaga's paper forms part of her study on traditional medical practices and women's reproductive health in rural areas. This is the first time that the qualitative research category was included in the history of the expo. For the Quantitative/Mixed Method – Undergraduate Category, two students received the first and third prizes: Marlon Enano (BS Biology 2019) and Zairel Crish Sarillana (BS Food Technology 2019), respectively. Enano’s paper entitled "Bioassay guided isolation of anti-lung cancer compounds from the leaves of DDHP-2095" is part of the UP Mindanao’s Discovery and Development of Health Products (DDHP) research project headed by Associate Professor Joel Hassan Tolentino (Department of Food Science and Chemistry) and Associate Professor Aleyla de Cadiz (Department of Biological Science and Environmental Studies). Sarillana’s paper entitled "Green synthesis of zinc oxide nanoparticles using cacao (Theobroma cacao L.) pod husk extract and evaluation of their anti-amicrobial activities" explores new areas in the continuing research of her adviser, Associate Professor Noreen Grace Fundador (Department of Food Science and Chemistry), on the use of waste from local bioresources to assist in the formation of nanoparticles with anti-microbial properties.

 

5-6 October 2019 - UP Mindanao served as UP College Admission Test Center for Davao City.

6 October 2019 - Koro Kantahanay, the resident choir group of the University of the Philippines (UP) Mindanao, was one of 52 choirs―and the only one from Mindanao―invited to perform at the Philippine Madrigal Singers or the Madz’s “MusiKapayapaan: Madz et al. Choral Festival 2019” held at the Cultural Center of the Philippines on 1–6 October 2019. The choir was led by choir founder and conductor Joey Vargas, a former faculty of UP Mindanao. As each choir group was given ten minutes to perform, Koro Kantahanay sang three songs: “Amani” (Peace) by American composer Audrey Snyder, “Salmo 150” (Psalm 150) by Brazilian composer Ernani Aguiar, and a Blaan folk song “Kayo Mungay Daun” (The Weaving of Leaves). The program ended with all the choirs singing their two final songs, the reggae version of American singer Perry Como’s “One Little Candle” and Filipino reggae band Tropical Depression’s “Kapayapaan,” both arranged by featured arranger and Madz alumnus Robert Delgado.
