22nd UP President in UPMin and City Hall
The UPMin community welcomed the 22nd University President, Atty. Angelo A. Jimenez, in his first visit to the campus in his new capacity on April 20, 2023. Pres. Jimenez's visit reiterates his message at the 28th UPMin anniversary to fully support Chancellor Lyre Anni Murao's plans and programs towards transformative education. Former chancellors Sylvia Concepcion, Larry Digal, and former Staff Regent Annaliza Fulvadora, whose terms intersected with Pres. Jimenez's term as Regent, were present.
In the afternoon, Pres. Jimenez visited Davao City Mayor Sebastian Z. Duterte (in lower photo, second from left), where he announced UP's plans to establish a UPMin college for medicine, engineering, and the sciences. Atty. Janis Louis Esparcia (left-most), Assistant City Administrator for Operations and UPMin alumna, was present.
President Jimenez was appointed by the UP Board of Regents in December 2022. His six-year term covers February 2023 to February 2029. Atty. Jimenez first served UP as a Student Regent in 1992 and again as a Regent from 2016-2021.
