Welcome to the inaugural issue of the PIA Bulletin. This bulletin will publish hyperlinked lists or short paragraphs with a focus on the following: Partnerships with local and foreign universities, opportunities for faculty and student exchange, opportunities for research cooperation, and relevant news.
This bulletin does not replace PIA announcements made through “UA&P Announcement”. Neither does it replace PIA’s forwarding of information directly to appropriate units or persons. Our objective is to provide staff with an easily recognized, easily read, and dedicated summary of opportunities made available by the university’s local and international partnerships. Of particular concern is the university’s internationalization, which is partly achieved when staff and students take advantage of exchange programs made possible by our international partnerships.
The Public and International Affairs (PIA) office facilitates the UA&P’s local and international relationships, especially faculty and student exchange, opportunities for joint research, and VIP relations. It also oversees the Junior Networkers Society (JNS). The office is staffed by Mr. Philip Peckson as officer-in-charge, Ms. Maricar Dizon as international affairs officer, and Ms. Marielle Uy-Abella as public affairs officer.
Should you have any questions or suggestions about the items posted in this bulletin, please visit our office at the second floor of ALB or send an email to email@example.com. You may also call 637.0912 loc 408.
