UP Visayas Antique campus to be inaugurated Aug. 25

The University of the Philippines Visayas (UPV) extension campus in Pandan town, Antique will be inaugurated today, Aug. 25, 2023.

UP President Angelo Jimenez, Chancellor Clement Camposano, Pandan Mayor Tomas Estoperez, Jr., and officials from the UP System, UPV, and Pandan local government unit (LGU) are scheduled to attend the event.

Located in Brgy. Nauring, the 900-square-meter, three-story structure is the brainchild of Senate President Pro Tempore Loren Legarda. The construction began in October 2020.

Sen. Legarda will give her keynote message through a recorded video.

The presence of the structure and its facilities in Pandan will catalyze the engagements among constituent universities (CUs) in the UP System, local academic institutions, and LGU partners.

The PhP50-million structure includes classrooms, offices, training spaces, and a conference room.

Officials in attendance will cut the ribbon and unveil the marker during the program. Prior to these, a blessing of the structure will take place. (Mr. Carlson B. Alelis, IPO)
