The recently held BOD meeting at the Diliman Learning Center focused on the commitment to increase the Foundation’s online presence to help build a virtual community among its current and incoming alumni. Now, UPOU graduates can keep in touch with the alumni community through different social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Yahoo Groups. Soon, UPOU alumni can also join forums in its web site.
The board of directors is also excited about UPOU’s upcoming collaboration with a professional organization that aims to offer certification programs recognized worldwide. This project was initiated by the Foundation and is considered to be one of its major projects for the fiscal term. With this collaboration, UPOU will have more courses to offer locally and to overseas professionals.Another meeting will be held on April 17 at the Diliman LC for the officers who were not available last Saturday. Minutes of the meeting will be published at the UPOU alumni web site.
