Much has changed in UP over the past 100 years. From one campus in Manila, it now has eight constituent universities with 17 campuses all over the country; it has 258 undergraduate programs; and 438 graduate programs with students from almost every region in the country.
UP President Danilo Concepcion tells the UPOU Class of 2020 that it is part of the first generation of Iskolar ng Bayan to graduate in a time of pandemic. “I expect you to lead our country in rising from the ravages of this tragedy. Use your UP education wisely. With courage and excellence, may you fulfill your duties as good citizens with the heart and mind for our people and nation.” Screenshot by Misael Bacani of UP MPRO from the 24th UPOU Commencement Exercises live stream via YouTube.
