Proclamation of UPCEd SC Councilors for AY 2017-2018

After further deliberation and consultation with the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, the UPCEd CSEB, in a meeting held on 18 April 2017, resolved to proclaim the following as UPCESC Councilors for AY 2017-2018:

  • ABDULMAULA, Normeliza
  • CACAL, John Prince
  • CAMARILLO, Adrian Grant
  • GINES, Mary Althea Dianne
  • OCAMPO, Maria Ysabella
  • ROYULADA, Mia Angela
  • SANDRINO, Marie Therese

The UPCEd CSEB initially announced the holding of a special election on 27 April 2017 on account of the above-mentioned candidates being unable to secure a vote of confidence (50% + 1 of the total number of students who voted).  In light of an appeal emanating from the Student Alliance for the Advancement of Democratic Rights in UP (STAND UP), the Board consulted with the Office of the Vice Chancellor which released the attached official communication stating “that the said plan is no longer necessary” due to the two reasons specified therein. To fill the two (2) other available councilor slots, the College Board of Representatives will convene to discuss and agree on the mechanics to be adopted.

Please be guided accordingly. Thank you.

He introduced the NEWSTART Model, a naturopathic method for living a healthy and drug-free life. NEWSTART is an acronym for nutrition, exercise, water, sunlight, temperance, air, rest and trust in God. It is based on the principle that nature restores the person and internal terrain is the core of the solution to people’s health concerns. After explaining the model’s philosophy and principles, he proceeded with the healthy lifestyle brief intervention questionnaire, a tool for assessing one’s health behaviors. All participants were asked to answer the questions and interpret the results based on the healthy lifestyle signal and wheel. The rest of the session was devoted to further explaining the details of the model to attain homeostasis.
