android-shot yesterday afternoon: The campus-wide regular meeting of the faculty (the “University Council”, the highest academic policy-making body of the University consisting of all assistant professors, associate professors, and professors) which convened  to officially approve the graduation of students and and the official list of 2018 graduates of the University of the Philippines Diliman, and to examine, review, and approve more than three years’ work of curricular proposals — held at the spanking new School of Statistics auditorium — bright, spacious, and cool.

Dean Ellen Paglinauan approves the final plan, makes her final signature

      Friends and family are keeping wake for former U.P. College of Mass Communication Dean Ellen Paglinauan at the Loyola Commonwealth. Her ashes will be brought to Bicol after Wednesday, Jan. 16, 2013, where she will be laid to rest.

       The U.P. College of Mass Communication will offer a mass  today, Jan. 15, 3 pm at the Loyola Commonwealth Mercy B Room 2nd floor.

       Dean Ellen was a well-known faculty of the U.P. Film Institute, film critic, and member of the Manunuri ng Pelikulang Pilipino (Urian) (Film Critics Academy of the Philippines). During her term as dean, she established the U.P. Film Institute from the U.P. Film Department thru a rigorous and aggressive faculty recruitment process and a progressive curriculum review. As dean, she also finalized the construction plans of the U.P. Media Center and supervised the laying of the foundation and main structure. She also spearheaded the institution of the graduate program, M.A. Media Studies. She led the faculty convention that articulated and finalized the “vision-mission-goals” of the College. Known to be both a “strict” and kind administrator, Dean Ellen took pains in explaining the bases of promotions and made sure the process proceeded from the premise that all U.P. employees were underpaid by U.N. standards for decent wages, and needed immediate relief. Dean Ellen’s liberal outlook also provided vistas for the exhibition of more independent films at the U.P. Film Center.

       After her retirement in U.P., Dean Ellen taught “Media, Government, and Society” at the UST Law Graduate School.

       Dean Ellen leaves a legacy of honest and hard work in the public service, critical thinking in the academe, a genuine concern for the plight of her countrymen, long-lasting friendships and an unbroken commitment to mentoring and practice.
