SU official elected to UMAP


Silliman University Dean of Students, Edna Gladys Calingacion, was elected as a member of the Board of the University Mobility in Asia and the Pacific - Philippines during a conference held in Clark, Pampanga recently, a press release from SU said.

UMAP is an association of government and non-government representatives in higher education aimed a enhanced cultural, social and economic understanding among universities in Asia and the Pacific. It targets stronger collaboration and better mobility among students and university faculty within the region.

Calingacion will sit in the Board for the Philippines for two years, effective 2018. UMAP works closely with the Commission on Higher Education on its student internationalization programs, the press release said.

The conference on “UMAP as a Platform for Academic Mobility: Campus-Based Internationalization” provided a multidisciplinary forum to discuss the key movers of academic mobility. It featured a series of talks that encouraged participants to look beyond the standard full-program or semester-based study abroad mobility and focus on the benefits of internationalization “at home”, the press release added.*
