Taiwan university delegates explore STEAM partnerships with UP
| Written by Jo. Florendo B. Lontoc
A delegation from Southern Taiwan higher educational institutions met University of the Philippines (UP) counterparts at a “homecoming visit” to UP organized by the Edu-Connect Southeast Asian Association in time for the UP presidential turnover ceremonies on February 10, 2023.
The delegates attended the ceremonial turnover of the UP presidency from Danilo Concepcion to Angelo Jimenez at the UP Diliman Quezon Hall Lobby and, afterwards, met with several UP System and constituent officials for possible academic partnerships at a reception in the nearby University Theater. They were particularly looking at developing interdisciplinary academic programs in Science, Technology, Engineering, Agriculture/Marine/Fishery and Mathematics (STEAM) with UP.
The delegates were headed by Dr. Eing-Ming Wu, executive director of Edu-Connect Southeast Asan Association Kaohsiung and Chair Professor at Shu-Te University. They were welcomed by UP Vice President for Academic Affairs Cynthia Rose Bautista and Vice President for Public Affairs Elena Pernia, and briefed on UP internationalization by Deputy Director Noel Christian Moratilla of the UP Office of International Linkages. Moratilla also introduced the delegates from UP.
