Last March 15, staff members of the Office of International Linkages underwent a training on Good Governance facilitated by Dr. Eing Ming Wu, Visiting Professor of the National College of Public Administration and Governance (NCPAG) and the Executive Director of the Edu-Connect Southeast Asia Association.   

Anchoring on the importance of advancing UP’s mandate to serve as a regional and global university, Dr. Wu integrated faithful stewardship and becoming a good neighbor to one another in training the office’s staff members as international relations officers.

Dr. Wu highlighted the crucial role Filipinos play in the global arena and then adapted it to the current goals and initiatives of the university with an emphasis on maximizing talents and resources in actualizing these goals. He then shared the close bonds and similarities of the Philippines and Taiwan as well as the latter’s best practices, particularly on developing an innovation hub and Technopark. 

The training ended with a discussion on navigating challenges and hurdles by embodying sanctified stewardship not only in the professional setting but also in day-to-day experiences as a good neighbor.
