Dr. Minda J. Formacion, former Dean of the UPV College of Arts and Sciences, is the new UPV Chancellor.

One of the four nominees in the recently concluded search for the UPV Chancellor, Dr. Formacion was appointed by the UP Board of Regents for the said position during its 1236th meeting on September 29, 2008. The Board is the UP System’s highest governing body.

The nominees also included Dr.  Georgina R. Encanto of the UP Diliman College of Mass Communication and Dr. Crispino A. Saclauso and Dr.  Augusto E. Serrano, Jr. from the College of Fisheries, UPV.

The nominees were asked to make a vision paper for UPV and these were presented in a forum in the campuses of Tacloban, Cebu, Iloilo City, and Miagao.

Dr. Formacion said that she drew inspiration for her vision paper from the vision and mission of UP Visayas as defined in the UP Plan 2005-2011 and approved by the BOR on June 23, 2005.
She said that the UP Plan 2005-2011 “must be respected together with the UPV Five-Year Plans 2006-2010 (Volume 1 of the report of Chancellor Glenn Aguilar) since the latter was the product of consultations and planning workshops among the UPV constituents.”

Dr. Formacion has drawn up the following plans and programs which she considers important and achievable for UPV for the next three years.

Strengthen the Academic Programs
Develop and Strengthen Research /Creative Work /Extension Capabilities of the Constituents
Promote Faculty, Staff and Student Welfare
Resource Generation and Linkages
Alumni and the Community
Improvement of facilities and the [UPV] environment

Dr. Formacion will serve for one term effective November 1, 2008 until October 31, 2011. She will replace outgoing Chancellor Dr. Glenn D. Aguilar.
