The University of the Philippines Cebu (UP Cebu) launched its 18-month countdown for its Centennial Celebration earlier at 1:30 p.m in the university’s Performing Arts Hall (PAH).

UP Cebu will turn 100 this 2018. The school was established in 1918 to serve as a satellite unit for UP Diliman, the flagship campus of the entire UP System. It is the oldest UP campus outside Luzon.

Present in the event is UP’s Assistant Vice President for Public Affairs, Jose Wendell Capili, who will give a speech on recognizing UP Cebu as an institution ‘of public service by being a hub of excellence in research, creative design and information technology’.

Last October 27, the UP Board of Regents allowed UP Cebu to elevate its status as an autonomous unit to a constituent university, which took effect immediately.

As a constituent university, all four departments of UP Cebu will be elevated to colleges and schools with Atty. Liza Corro heading the entire university as its chancellor.
