Chancellor Lyre Murao led the opening of the Outdoor Gym after the Flag-Raising Ceremony on October 2, 2023. A total of ten pairs of gym equipment were opened for the use of the UPMin students and staff. The Outdoor Gym is located on the University Library grounds and is open daily from 5:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
“Health and wellness are very important in achieving a sense of community here in the university. This outdoor gym will help us build that community,” said Chancellor Lyre Anni Murao.
“As good citizens, we are responsible for our well-being, and exercise can extend our lives,” said Assistant Professor Armando Salazar. "Studies show that exercising outdoors is comparatively more beneficial than exercising indoors. It reduces stress while complementing a sedentary lifestyle. This outdoor equipment is like a toy designed as if you are playing while improving your total fitness and becoming closer to nature. As “Lingkod Bayan,” I believe we are responsible for caring for our health," he said.
The Outdoor Gym is an initiative of the Department of Human Kinetics. University Librarian Briccio Merced Jr. offered the University Library grounds as location. The Human Resource Development Office and the Office of Student Affairs co-organized the launch event.

University of the Philippines Mindanao (UPMin) students and friends won third place in the Techstars Startup Weekend Davao Pitch Competition for “Kabilin,” an innovative web-based software on Philippine culture and history. BS Agribusiness Economics student Charis Anne Canceran delivered the prize-winning pitch on behalf of their team, composed of BS Computer Science (BSCS) students Phillip Ian John Hufana and Mohammad Muraya Tampugao, and Bien Lim and Newart Manguilimotan. 

While promoting the learning and preservation of Filipino culture and history, the “Kabilin” software applies video game mechanics and Virtual Reality to deliver an immersive educational experience. 

The Techstars Startup Weekend-Davao Pitch Competition is a Davao Startup Week event co-organized by IDEAS-XI, the UPGRADE Innolab, and Poplar Homes. 

"The Davao Startup Week represents a unique opportunity to showcase best practices, exchange invaluable insights, and explore potential funding and professional development opportunities," said UP Mindanao Chancellor Lyre Anni Murao in her welcome remarks, representing the IDEAS consortium. 

"With every step together with our stakeholders, we draw closer to our vision of empowering aspiring entrepreneurs and nurturing a supportive and thriving startup community," she said.
