The 1st Colleges and Universities Public Service Conference (CUPSCon) officially began yesterday, 26 November 2015, at the University of the Philippines Open University (UPOU). CUPSCon is supported by the Office of the President of the University of the Philippines, the Office of the Vice President for Public Affairs of UP, the Office of the Chancellor of UP Los Baños (UPLB), the Office of the Chancellor of the UP Open University and organized through the cooperation of UPLB Ugnayan ng Pahinungod, UPLB Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Extension, UP Manila Ugnayan ng Pahinungod, UP Diliman Office of Extension Coordination, and UP Baguio Office of Public Affairs and the University of the Philippines Padayon Public Service Office. 

With the theme “From the Ivory Tower to the Communities: Engaging Society with Commitment and Expertise,” CUPSCon is a two-day conference featuring sessions on HEI’s policies, programs, and projects that benefit sectors outside the university community especially in both local and national government; private sectors especially the micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs); civil society including non-government and people’s organizations; marginalized and underserved communities; and of course, the general public.

During the opening program, UPOU Chancellor Grace J. Alfonso gave the welcome remarks followed by a video of UP President Alfredo E. Pascual’s message. Dr. Grace H. Aguiling-Dalisay, Dean of the College of Social Sciences and Philosophy of UP Diliman, delivered the keynote speech entitled “Public Service in Higher Education: Why It Matters.” She emphasized the importance of engagement in the context of public service, and what matters is that we constantly think of how we can contribute as a university.

Three batches of parallel sessions followed, with each session focused on a particular theme. For the first batch of parallel sessions, the individual themes were: 1) Sector-Based Service-Learning; 2) Education, Literacy, and Training; and 3) Public Service Through Forensics and Genetics.

The second batch of parallel sessions focused on: 1) Community Engagement and Service-Learning; 2) Climate Change and Environmental Protection; and 3) Service-Learning through the National Service Training Program.

Finally, the third batch of parallel sessions had the following themes: 1) Developing the University Service Area: The Experiences of the Cagayan State University; 2) Community Nutrition; and 3) Higher Education Public Service.

A dinner was held at the Seniors Social Garden to formally welcome the delegates.

Day 2 (27 November 2015) will also be held at UPOU.

The UPLB Museum of Natural History (UPLB MNH) put the spotlight on the different Hoya plants by conducting “EpiCenter,” a seminar and exhibit, last 06 November 2015. Hoya plants are epiphytes, or plants that grow upon trees or other plants. Its flowers are star shaped and appears in a spherical pattern.

The event was composed of three segments: a photo exhibit, garden display, and seminar. The opening remarks and ribbon cutting were led by UPLB MNH Director Dr. Juan Carlos T. Gonzales and MNH Curator Professor Annalee S. Hadsal.

Professor Hadsal also gave a talk entitled “Hands on, Minds on Wax Flowers.” She gave a short lecture and a quiz about the anatomy of Hoya. Top scorers received Hoya plants as prizes.

The second speaker, MNH Curator Professor Ivy Amor F. Lambio, delivered a lecture on how to find Hoya. Her talk was entitled “Look up, look up: Finding the Elusive Hoya” as Hoya plants are commonly found hanging from above. She also presented different species of Hoya during her presentation. One of these is the Hoya espaldonia, named after former Vice Chancellor for Research and Extension Dr. Ma. Victoria O. Espaldon. The last speaker, Kenneth De Taglem is a Hoya hobbyist. He talked about the cultivation of Hoya and how different species of Hoya have varying needs.

Dr. Gonzalez gave the closing remarks and awarded the certificates, accompanied by Dr. Espaldon.
