Written by Rene Estremera. Posted in Announcements

MEMORANDUM NO. ARO – 2016-053 / DATE : 23 September 2016 / FROM : ANTONIO R. OBSIOMA, Vice Chancellor for Administration


SUBJECT : Security Measures to Address Alleged Harassments Committed by Habal-Habal and Tricycle Drivers

To address alleged harassments committed by a few habal-habal and tricycle drivers against our University constituents, particularly students, we would like to request everyone to follow this security procedure:

• Immediately report the details of the harassment to any of the following: Dr. Antonio R. Obsioma (0922-871-2181), Armel Montos  (0929-197-4394), and MINSAS guard (293-0016).

• Avoid spreading unverified harassment stories, online or offline, in order not to sow fear, panic, and confusion.

• All security concerns need to be coursed through the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Administration (293-0258), which in turn will coordinate with the relevant agencies, such as police, barangay, etc.

Attached is a list of security tips for all University constituents. Suggestions to improve campus security are welcome. Please email them to .

Security tips while travelling to and from the campus

1. Avoid staying until late in the evening in the campus, especially if one is alone.

2. If it cannot be avoided, ask someone (e.g., guard on duty) to accompany you until such time that you have taken a public utility vehicle (e.g., tricycle).

3. If coming from UP Mindanao, ask the guard on duty to record the details of the vehicle you are riding, your name as passenger, and date/time of departure.

4. Before taking a vehicle, assess the profile of the driver and note important details such as plate number, vehicle type, and driver’s information. Text the plate number to your family members and friends.

5. Immediately report any unusual situation/event and presence of suspicious-looking strangers to Dr. Antonio R. Obsioma (0922-871-2181), Armel Montos (0929-197-4394), and MINSAS guard (293-0016).

6. OSA will soon spearhead the conduct of a self-defense training; everyone is encouraged to participate.

7. Bring self-defense items, such as pepper spray, stun gun, etc., to protect you from any possible attack/harassment.

8. In case of actual attack/harassment, create a loud commotion (e.g., shouting) to get help from other people within the vicinity.
