Magkakaroon ba ng 2nd summer term dahil sa Academic Calendar Shift? Sagot: Ang desisyon ukol rito ay manggaling lamang sa University Council ng Diliman (tenured faculty members). Ayon kay Chancellor Tan, pag-uusapan pa ito. Maghintay na lamang ng pabatid na ilalabas kung ito ay mapagdesisyunan na. 2. Kailangan pa bang pumila para makakuha ng tuition loan application form? Sagot: Ang application form para sa tuition loan ngayon ay maaari nang sagutan ng online sa pamamagitan ng link na matatagpuan sa inyong CRS account. 3. Ano ang gagawin kung nawawala ang ilang button o features sa online tuition loan application? Sagot: Kung mayroong nawawala sa online tuition loan application, ito ay marahil sa mga kadahilangan 1) problemang teknical/glitch sa system 2) mayroon pang hindi naaayos na problema ukol sa nakaraang loan. Kung (1) yung dahilan, maaring tawagan ang CRS office sa pamamagitan ng 981 8500 (UP Trunkline) at magpakonekta sa CRS. Maaaring hanapin si Mr. Arden Chan upang tingnan at iresolba ang problema sa inyong account. 4. Pwede bang mag "prerog" kung ineligible ang status ng enrollment? Sagot: Pwede pa ring mag "prerog". Ang hindi lamang maaaring gawin ay magpaassess at magpa validate. 5. Ano ang gagawin kung "ineligible" to enroll? Sagot: Ilan sa pinakamadalas na dahilan kung bakit ineligible ay dahilang 1) akademik 2) problema sa loan Kung (1) ang dahilan, ito ay maaayos lamang sa inyong kolehiyo. Kung (2) naman, magtungo lamang sa Office of Scholarships and Student Services, Vinzons Hall 3rd floor. 6. Paano kung hindi pa kayang bayaran ang tuition bago o hanggang sa huling araw ng bayaran? Sagot: Una, maaaring mag apila na hindi kayang bayaran ang tuition sa nasabing huling araw ng bayaran. Magtungo lamang sa inyong College Secretary upang makahingi ng endorsement na aaprubahan ng ating Chancellor. Pangalawa, magtungo sa OSSS upang makapagloan o makonsidera sa scholarship at kanilang iba pang proyekto tulad ng adopt-a-student program. 7. Paano kung ang magulang na pipirma sa tuition loan application ay nasa probinsya o kaya'y walang magulang na pwede pumirma? Sagot: 1) Kung ang magulang ay malayo o nasa probinsya, maaaring iscan ang naprint na tuition loan application form at isend ito sa sa magulang upang mapirmahan. 2) Kung mayroon namang malaput na kamag-anak, maaaring sila ang magsilbing codebtor basta't isama lamang sa application form ang kopya ng kanilang ID. 3) Kung walang magulang o malapit na kamag-anak, maaaring makiusap sa faculty, staff o kahit sinong empleyado ng UP na magsilbing co-debtor. Kailangan lamang ng kpya ng kanilang ID at sa ilalim nito ay maglagay ng pahayag na sila ay handa at nangangakong bayaran ang nasabing loan kung hindi mabayaran ng estudyante.

8. Paano kung hindi pa kayang bayaran ang loan noong nakaraang semester? Sagot: Maari lamang magtungo sa Office of Scholarships and Student Services (Loan board) upang mabigyan ng payo at kaukulang dokumento para maapila ang pagbabayad ng nakaraan loan. 9. Paano kung ang pambayad sa loan ay iyong makukuha sa refund sa refund dahil sa pagkakarebracket? Sagot: Kakatapos lamang ng DIliman Committee for Scholarships and Financial Assistance (DCSFA) sa pag-asikaso ng lahat ng apila ngayon semeste. Maaaring pumunta sa STFAP office para tanungin ang apila at doon maaari na kaong mabigyan ng mga kaukulang dokumento para makapagrefund. Arjay: Bawal manghula pag may nagtanong. JP: We have to maximize what we have to ensure na walang estudyante and hindi makakaaral dahil sa financial status Arjay: Gagawa ng formatted na form na ififill-up nalang nila. Need approval from higher offices. Arjay: Concept of refund (takes 4 months), this is where they appeal for loans or late payments. Pola: Is it cash or straight process in UP? (re refunds) JP: Cash. But if it's with loan, macacancel yung loan niya. Di pa sure kung may lalabas na pera ngayong summer term for STFAP refunds, therefore open yung leeways like latepayments for loans. Arjay: May ilalabas tayo ng form, in terms of feedback. Tinutulungan din natin ang staff through manpower para mas may information sila at mas maging efficient ang mga sistema. *New rule frm OSSS : Letter from parents/guardians that they know na may loan na naiwan ang anak nila or na may loan sila. *Kahit may patong-patong na loan, pwede parin magloan. *JP to include flowchart for financial assistance. 2) Chairperson Arjay Mercado's Report (2:45pm) 1) Meeting with UFC (April 2) Role of UFC as USCs freshie arm is established (Univ.

Hindi ko naman sinasara talaga na sa kanila lang talaga, pero gusto ko sila (AdCore and JPIA) iprioritize.

Arjay: To give context, AdCore's ready for UJF this year. We still open the event for org partners when it comes to sending attendees. My question now, is if there is some opposition dun sa niraise ni Mikhail. We'll ask AdCore if they're game to add other people for publicity. Mikhail: Gusto for a specific arm, we'll have only one team each. Arjay: May contention ba dun? Body agrees to this.

Tolits: Base it on Gender talks for the students. Ask if the students understand. i.e. Do you know what gender identity is? Evaluate the gap from information to how they understand. AJ: For Labels, GBBTomboy.. who are your prospective speakers? Tolits: Marami. There are alot of debates. that's why i want to convene the National student Gender Advocates Alliance. Encourage debates and find a middle ground.

Mikhail: so STATUS is diagnostic? Tolits: it can be used indicate if we really need to step back. to see if the talks are really understood by the students. Mikhail: For BarangGay, bakit UP campus ung target? aside from convenience. has there been a geographic profiling where the issues are prominent? And the in terms of the lobbying, may related partylist ba na pwede ma push na kasama? Tolits: I'm not familiar with the baranggays so i put the most feasible. i have also interacted with the people in the baranggay. I'm not sure if it's mapped out. Pero makakahanap tayo ng data kung saan pinakamataas ung hate crime. V: Do you have plans sa free breast cancer test in partnership with UP health? like shots. Tolits: with regards sa breast cancer check-ups, there are available. it's free for students in the infirmary. but there are further steps if you have signs ng breast cancer which may be difficult to avail for free. we aim to get free shots. Tin: sa BarangGay, pakipalitan ung pangalan. parang hindi lang nag aaddress sa gays. then coming from a sorority, hinahanap ko yung women's month. Tolits: thank you for bringing up. women's month will be noted for the month of March. Tin: for brest cancer, are you more or less willing to partner with orgs. How will you partner with frats and sororities? Tolits: we can start by inviting them sa gender alliance/gender adhoc. Tin: mahirap din pala ung pag follow through nung sa cases. sana ma distinguish din yun sa dorms. Ralph: what's your opinion on LGBT discriminating fello LGBT Tolits: we want to emphasize "ohana". emphasize that any case related to gender, pwede ka mag approach sa gender committee. Ralph: on gay pageants within UP, do you have plans for these? Tolits: personally, I don't want to. I want to break stereotypes. It's not to stop them from doing it. Ralph: on HIV/AIDS issues, i know it's a national issue. sa HIV testing, you need counselors. what are your plans? Tolits: ask for orgs help to train counselors inside UP. Ralph: i know people who want to take HIV test but they don't want to because they don't want it to be put on student record. Tolits: I think we have to lobby with the to not file it since it's a sensitive issue. proven na less approachable yung test clinic. Ralph: On HIV/AIDS awareness. sana you do research muna. in the UP context, it would be nice to coordinate with mass com. they have a lot of campaigns related to this. sa CSSP psych, counseling. next, there's a law on

the rights of people sa HIV. AIDS law: you cannot deny a person in a company. finally, there are a lot of UP students with STIs but they don't want to tell anyone so maybe you can include this. Baba: do you have a mechanism to make the education part mandatory? what if i'm homophobic? Tolits: we cannot impose them. but we can start with small groups of people. quality versus quantity. i want to focus on people who are interested. JP: ma swerte ka kasi agree si chancy mag bigay ng budget. sa HIV test, walang record. attendance lang to track the people who come. Ralph: but i think recorded yung data sa student records. Arjay: hindi siya official record ng University. iba siya sa sinasabi ni Ralph. wala pang HIV testing sa UP. JP: si Dr. Edrosa, public affairs head ng UP health service, willing mag arrange ng HIV testing. Sa services din, empowered na ung LGBT students. My concern is yung staff sa UP na hindi empowered. The staff is not vocal with the issue but they're living in the community. Pola: suggestion sa education, sana ung output is modules. maraming talks, it would be nice kung uniformed and consistent. sana we have the same framework that we can follow sa buong USC. Sa anti discrimination declaration, how is it operationalized? what is the nature? if the anti-discrimination bill is not yet passed, you do not have a legal basis to enforce it in UP. so maybe you can get international treaties in UN. sa scope and limitation, i have doubts because i don't think the whole LGBT issue is a consesus out of yet. so if you have a policy you want to enforce, how can you make this strong? where will you get support? Tolits: we can always tap NGOs. sila yung pinaka maalam sa issues and may hawak silang reference with international treaties. Pola: kailangan i-compensate yung efforts ng students sa lobbying since walang document na anti-discrimination is a right Tolits: may ordinances na around cities so we could start from that. Pola: on the policy, what is its scope? is it with respect sa gender sensitivity? Tolits: basically, may draft na that we have to review more carefully. it contains: you cannot discriminate based on sexual orientation. Motion to extend Pola: sa pageants, may rule na straight men lang ang pwede sumali. what is your position? Tolits: depende. may cross-dressing competition. may different levels on stands. the point, bawal yung may "advantage". for me, i take it as a compliment, i want to be an approachable person on this. Ben: maganda yung SOGIE video project. anong orgs ma partner mo? Tolits: papasok yung pag empower ng orgs na di sobrang sikat. may orgs na magaling na, gusto ko ung cinemas art movement. so far, sa 20 orgs ng CMC, may 10 na related sa film. Ben: maraming academic paper sa masscomm on boy bakla tomboy... are you willing to get profs in masscomm and academic papers? s

Tolits: yes. inspired ito dito. maraming advocates ang nanggagaling sa media since kailangan pagusapan ung different ng Philippine and American context on gender. I'm glad it's out in the media. I think CMC would be a good college to tap. Ben: what are you plans sa international movements? like maraming nangyayaring movements. and how will you handle religious? Tolits: we are not allowed to impose the same way that they cannot impose to us that being part of LGBT is wrong. it goes both ways. i think the best is to respect each other. specifically, may religious groups na protest against LGBTs. maramig members ng LGBTs na nag heckle pa. i think we should let them be and let them express on what they believe in. that's why i want it to be approachable. Motion to extend - Ben Tin: pa-verify. in coordination ba ang gender comm natin sa GSD sa org recog? so puro orgs. pano ung non affiliated? Tolits: diyan pumapasok yung pagiging fun. dito na yung medyo idealistic but i really believe that it's possible. the stigma is you don't want to be labelled na homophobic. Tin: sa national alliance, when do you plan to form it? Tolits: most likely more than halfway na ng term Leo: clarification, sa ms. engg. di naman talaga siya "gay' pagaent. sa ms. engg, walang written rule na pag bakla ka, bawal ka sumali. ung candidates namin, after the pagaent, tumaas daw respect nila for the gays. End of discussion - 4:16pm.

Deliberations Proper Ryan & Ben: pa stress nalang yung sa women's month Tin: maganda yung national alliance, pero mahirap siya. Arjay: we can thresh out the possibilities sa national alliance. di lang gender orgs ang pwede sumali pero pati non-LGBT allies like atheist society. Tin: mahirap ata kasi pag school orgs. Arjay: yung pinanghuhugutan ng pag tap ng org, example this year lang naapprove na org ang ...?propaganda. sa babaylan alumni arm, ito ung aim nila. pwede rin ma-invite ung di "gender" org. nung pride week 67 orgs ang partner. Ben: participation din ng soros and frats. Arjay: nung pride week, may soros. tapos ung tanong ni Aj sa survey, may FHS. may part sa survey on proficiency of HIV. pwede yung ganong moda. motion to adopt - leo

How can we advance this cause? G3 Movement (Good Governance Guild) Get many member organizations to commit to good governance So much potential here to unite UP Good avenue for change Good Governance Score Card Grade the administration right now Invite experts to grade people on the current achievements economically, international affairs, etc How is the administration doing so far and what else can it do in the remaining months Kapihan with Admin If students have concerns and campaigns, we can get them through directly to the admin Students and administration to be in the same room Students can ask them directly to the admin, hard part of having a middle man Record the output and hold admin accountable for what they said If we hold them accountable at the very start, it would be a healthier relationship Bantay BOR Keep the students up to date with the decisions they're making Seal of Good Governance Introduced by Sec. Robredo, he awards them with a seal of good house keeping We can do the same in our local councils, and university student council We can recognize councils that are well performing About giving leadership to the local councils Boses Diliman Responsive to the students concerns online People to know that the USC is always moving What's happening in different colleges But we should still screen the things posted Good Governance Policy Fair Give them an avenue to forward policy to the national level Grade your SC You have to always have measures of success Why not ask the students themselves who they feel of their level of service At the end of every sem, we have some feedback at the end of every semester Crowdsourcing Ask the students what projects they want to see, what are relevant to them After semplanning, why not consult students with regards to projects Programs can be flexible for every campaign Essencially, getting the pulse of the students Auxiliary Support (projects with other committees GGC can help in) Look Out USC: all our financial statements, attendance trackers should be posted in different bulletin boards Ronda Diliman: dialogues with all the students, open to orgs and unaffiliated Gender Budget: magna carta for women: 5% of budget allocated for women Public People's Partnership: students avenue to participate, projects made by the students Direct Link to the Students Functions

Performance Based Budgeting: Link budget to targets, set goals beforehand, important we stay within budget, important to start and end on time, try not to have projects that gets financed too much but isn't very effective. Auditing Project Evaluation and Compilation: For the benefit of the next USC, have something to base on

Good Governance Committee Structure Head - SecGen - Director for Programs - Director for Operations - Policy and Advocacy Division - Other directors Key Performance Indicators 50 committee members No over-budget policy Volunteer satisfaction *Before proceeding to the open forum, andito yung UP Manininda to discuss their last meeting with BCO Context Had a meeting with BCO already Ate Edna (President) Salamat sa supporta. Malaking bagay po yun sa aming samahan. BCO plans to make a database for all concessionaires Nagsend kami ng letter to BCO para iexplain kung para saan Sumagot si ma'am florendo, pwedeng siya na sasagot sa aming general assembly (kasama niya si Vice Chancellor Yap for Administration) Ang sabi ni ma'am florendo; Inatasan siya ni Chancellor Tan na harapin ang usapin ng manininda Una sa kay Mang Gener; dineklara niya na natanggalan na din ng permit, tinatanggap niya na may pagkukulang doon dahil hindi dumaan sa samahan. Mga members lang ang andoon at wala ang mga opisyales. Pinapaalis na rin ang concessionaire sa Home Econ. Lahat ng negosasyon na triny namin at ang dami naman nilang non-negotiables. Sinabi nila na si Mang Gener ay aapila tapos tetestigo ang samahan na hindi na niya uulitin ang pagtitinda sa labas ng theatre. Dalawang klasing manininda, yung mga wala at merong permit at matagal na silang nagtitinda. Ang hanay namin ay sumisikap para ayusin ito. Ayaw bigyan ng permit pero pwede namang magtinda. FSRC committee dahil parang divisorya na daw ang UP. Gusto din namin na maregulate narin dahil may ibang manininda na walang permit pero pwede magbenta. Si mang Gener aapila nalang CHE - may jurisdiction iyan ng mga Dean kung ilang manininda na malalagay sa isang college. Nagcacause na ng traffic yung mga cart kaya dapat isa lang ang naiwan. Dahil nasa guidelines na may karapatang ang dean na mamili, kaya kailangan talaga sundin ang gusto ng dean at isa lang muna ang gusto at yung isa ang ililipat sa may Molave dorm. Doon sa panawagan ninyo ukol sa upuan at la mesa, parte talaga iyan ng university guidelines. Isusulong ni Ma'am florendo sa admin na kung pwede magkaroon na ng upuan. Pero yung la mesa, baka magkaroon na ng tambayan. Tapos nabanggit narin ang mga frat. Masaya kami na nabuksan na pwede nang amyendahan yung mga university guidelines. May age limit ang pwede magtinda dito sa UP (hanggang 65 years old) - ito ay gusto rin naming isulong dahil nahihirapan na sila maghanap ng trabaho. Parang gusto na ng committee na unti-unti ng mabawasan na ang mga UP manininda. Sana matulungan natin at mailagay sa guidelines. Sana hindi lang dean pero maconsult din ang mga estudyante.

Hindi po kami nangongonsente ng miyembro, nagtatanggal or nasususpende din ang mga miyembro namin. Pakiusap namin sa BCO na kami ang nakakaalam kung sino yung dapat ilagay sa mga pwesto. Kami na dapat yun hindi na dapat BCO. Ang kiosk ay hindi talaga para sa mga manininda para dapat yan sa malalaking concessionaires. Dati, nakalikom kami ng 12,000 signatures para kami ang mailagay sa kiosks. Nagpapasalamat kami sa inyo, dahil kung hindi ito nangyari, baka hindi ito mapakinggan. Dito talaga kami nabuhay at ilang dekada na kami dito at sinisikap talaga namin na maayos yung aming hanay. Sa pag amyenda, sana may USC na umupo para maupuan kung ano yung mga kailangan ninyo. At may dagdag pa, may ipapaalis din sa may CAL dahil may itatayong theatre at sa may LAW. Sana patuloy na makatuwang kayo. May plan B kami, kung sakali na kailangan talaga ng CAL, handa kami na ayusin yung harapan banda, baka matulungan ninyo kami na huwag naman sana alisin yung mga kasamang andun. Plano ilagay na sa residential. Magkakaroon uli ng dialogo kasama si ma'am florendo at isasama namin yung isang taga USC (Vice Chairperson JP) Chairperson Arjay: Masaya tayo na naayos na yung mga call natin, pero yung pinakamalaking goal ay yung pagamyenda ng university guidlelines. Ate Edna: Kung pwede natin ilagay din sa cart din, hikayatin rin natin sila na pumirma. Pwede kami makatulong doon sa signature campaign. Pwede ba isama narin yung mga kasama natin manininda na walang permit para maregulate narin. Tapos, nagkakaroon pa ng mga away-away. Baka pwedeng isulong narin yung isang cart sa may UPIS. Arjay: Isstreamline natin for next week yung 3 calls so far. Then in our semplan, we'll make a new manifesto with the calls, para masabi narin namin yung provisions. Nasa 30 narin yung mga orgs na nagconfirm. Icoconvene namin sila at maeexplain natin sa kanila with the manininda. Ate Edna: Magddraft narin kami ng guidelines. Gagawa din kami ng draft namin. JP: Gusto namin magkaroon ng oras para magpagusapan natin ito in full with all the stakeholders. Ate Edna: Hindi talaga namin inaasahan dahil nga bakasyon. Iba na ang trato ni ma'am florendo niya sa kanya. In fairness kay ma'am Florendo kahit ganun yung nangyari, open parin siya sa paguusap. Discussion Proper CMC Rep. Ben: How are you able to mobilize and maximize the members of your committee. o I have a lot of friends who've committed to this already. Most people are looking for credentials and I want to give that to them Jethro: Nakapagisip ka na ba ng specific modes mo for each campaign o I intend to still do all but have the mode as conducting as many EDs, we want to be in the forefront of all this. Konting push nalang sa mga campaigns, kaya naman. Jethro: Sa students ka magfofocus o As well as NGOs. Get organizations to be with us. Jethro: Doon sa kapihan with BOR o Di ba yun pasok sa student regent? Iba yung kapihan sa bantay BOR. SR might be busy every meeting but I can update you. Ralph: May limit ba ng number of students sa isang issue sa kapihan? o Whoever can answer that portion. Ralph: Ano yung benefits ng of having a grade? o All I can say is the recognition they get. Ralph: Too big of a stucture, how about limit for volunteers? o I set my limits big so I know that I have to reach it. Ralph: Since yung good governance yung watchdog, who watches the watchdog? o The chairperson will still have to watch me. Jamie: magkakaroon ba ng overlap sa nspag and sa ggc? tapos parang org ung gagawin mo, ano ung end goal? kailangan ba talaga to sa USC? o very different sila, wala sa ncpag na org that focus on the campaign. next, the usc is a good avenue to push for these campaigns. Jamie: if we adapt your proposal, does the usc automatically agree on all your campaigns?

o we could see which ones are general consensus and the rest we can debate about during sem planning. Arjay: to clarify, even if we approve your committee, the six campaigns you propose on the GGC, they will go through careful deliberation? o yes, those with contentions, we'll go through debates. Baba: what differentiates your committee from the people's struggles committee? o from my understanding, it's more on the sectors. GGC is more on governance, structure. it's all about in government and managing JP: at first, i saw the difference of your committee from the other committees. but when i saw your projects, baka mawalan na yung trabaho ung LCC. i want to see the dynamics between GGC and LCC. o what i want to work on with you is ung seal of good governance. it will be a good opportunity. JP: sa seal of good governance, maganda siya sa Philippines. Sa UP, sino magjujudge? sa tingin ko hindi tayo. dapat independent bodies. and dapat hindi mandatory. o sa seal of good governance, they are very objective. covers transparency and accountability and citizens charter like student council services. it's an optional thing since a new concept. JP: ano yung benefit or incentive sa seal of good governance? o besides from prestige, it can be standard practice sa councils Mikhail: same as JP's concern, upon going through the entire proposal, where do you see GGC sa buong larga ng USC? marami siyang mauubos na resources. some of the campaigns can be covered by EdRes. ano yung dynamics ng committee mo sa USC? para makita ung importance ng GGC. o I'm glad that EdRes came first. the EdRes people have so much to do already but we can push for campaigns that fall on the function of GGC. From MMC, other than feedback. I think it's dialogue and response. We can push for specific advocacies and we can act as a watchdog sa administration and sa USC. I haven't seen also measures of success from the past USCs. Ben: sa performance-based budgeting, o sa proposals we ask for a budget but we want to look for the goals of each project -- qualitative and quantitative. this is to know that the budget is going somewhere. Ben: so if maganda yung project, maganda yung budget? o no that's not it. Ben: your other projects, are puro evaluation. tapos magiging watchdog tayo ng administration. i think this is the job of the media. ung administration, dapat third party siya lagi. coming from masscomm. kasi baka may type of bias yung evaluator. o the only assessment of the USC performance, it comes from the students. i don't think there is no way we can interfere or put bias to this. because it will be the students who will input their evaluation. Pola: is there an option for a local council not to participate in seal of good governance campaign? how do you expect that that will be productive? how will the pubmat showing all the councils performances be incentive if it is optional. o yes it is optional. in terms of incentive, it's a matter of convincing people. like in UFTRS, no one is really asking them to do this. Pola: the grade your USC, it's part of accountability to release the results. but there is a conflict of responsiblity if we release an evaluation of the USC. if we do show raw data, how do we ensure of the survey keeps its integrity. o we can partner with stat council so we can have them verify that the results are not tampered with. Pola: with respect sa mode ng governance, if we look at other committees, our campaigns come from consultation, dialogues with sectors and other UP communitites. As compared to GGC, the policies and bills, parang GGC ang nagbaba sa students. isn't this very top-down? what if there is no public clamour? at the end of the day, what if there is no supports from the students? o i'd like to think that UP students are smart. my campaign, i gave a lot of projects. the students saw the potential. i'm willing to bet and survey students if they are against political dynasties. Jamie: on the survey, i think it's comprehensive. but coming from the local council, it's very hard to get the students to answer surveys. we're also a big school, getting a number of respondents for that length of

a survey would be very difficult. in terms of grading councils, medyo student council-centric yung dating? baka maging pang-council lang talaga siya? how does it directly serve the students? o i've seen the tendency of projects they don't really focus on student councils so i want to give it a twist. anything that will improve the level of service of students will improve the student services. i have projects like crowdsourcing so it will actually hit other sectors. IC: as incumbent of stat council, maraming haharapin ang stat council. have you spoken with any org regarding that? as a member of the org, di talaga ganon ang stat orgs na nangingialam sa student councils. kung hindi ba nag-agree yung two orgs sa stat, anong process mo sa paggawa ng survey? o i got to talk to a stat council member, we can go through stat students and profs Jethro: pano mo siyang gagawing inviting? like what Pola said, parang top-down siya and it will be difficult to encourage students. o i really think it's USc going to students, that makes it inviting. they get something value-adding to this like credentials. Reg: i appreciate your presentation. manifestation, your presentation was about the campaign then at some point, i felt that your projects overlap with the other committees like sec, MMC, finance. there might not be a solid accountability. how about the things that i've presented and what you presented? o i plan to to consolidate. i just want to make sure that Pola: with respect to the bills taht you what the passs, what are the levels of engagement that you have for the bills that you want to pass? it's hard to pass bills that have no clamour in the congress like antipolitical dynasty. what is your master plan like the G3 movement? o in the senate, more people actually want to push for it. we just want to show that we also want this. there are a lot of congressmen who are pushing for it if we show that students are pushing for it. i think we can push hard for this if we can make noise.

End - 7:22 PM Deliberations Proper AJ: More on the campaigns, he said that we have to decide on them individually. i'm not comfortable deciding on the specific issues. we have to really discuss some issues that are really debatable. i think we shouldn't yet approve the campaigns. V: manifestation, Reg said that some of the functions of the committee overlap the others. pero kung sakali na hindi naman sobrang mag overlap, i think it would be okay. and if maayos naman yung committees. we just have to make it clear na hindi redundant yung functions. Walter: naging clear naman yung visions niya when he presented. sa independent body, baka pwede don tayo tumulong in terms of his proposal. we can find professors and students who can build this independent body. but i like the vision he has for his committee. Ben: nagkakaroon talaga ng conflict of interest like sinabi ni Pola. pag inadopt natin proposal niya, sana hindi maging biased towards us and the institution. it's good pero mahirap talaga siya gawin. sa local palang mahirap din i-push yung surveys. kailangan talaga more participation from us. like yung 50 members na kailangan niya. Jethro: nag-overlap yung functions because i think yun yung call nung committees for this year. like yung call to be transparent for a certain committee, i think it's good that GGC is independent of this. Aaron: yung mga plano naman niya, for me pwede siya ipasok sa ibang committees. nung simula, i saw the purpose of his committee, pero nakikita ko na na di kailangan ng parang audit committee. last year, nagawa naman siya na transparent without having a pressure of a committee. why is there a need to even audit? ang auditor external din talaga yan, malaki din yung scale na mahirap controlin. i like the concept but is the committee appropriate given the nature of the council? i don't htink it's apporpriate yet.

Tolits: i like his idea because it's fresh. pagdating sa audit, nagkakasingilan din naman tayo pagdating ng campaign. may accoutnability in real time hindi yung sa end nagkakaroon ng singilan and regrets.. Mikhail: Una, we hae to recognize the concept of good governance as an independent thing. we see it's overlap with other committees. yung concern ni Aaron, mas nag focus si Raymond sa pagbaba sa local council. hindi siya nagfofocus sa USC lang and it's a good avenue for USC to be felt in a more local level. and for the USC to be felt. while there may be reservations on how the campaigns will be done, i don't think that the pros are not outweighed. maganda na sa atin mag simula ito and ma recognize natin na ma appreciate siya ng local councils na may initiative tayo. V: motion to adopt the proposal since puro recommendations lang. Ben: I object. maganda yung points na ni-raise ni Aaron. Na redundant na nagooverlap siya. ang dami na kasi nating committees and projects and we have to check on how we can govern this properly. Jethro: i think the GGC ung nag gogovern ng transparency. if hindi natin ito ma-achieve, ito yung magsasabi na iayos. Reg: motion to divide the house. Ryan: i think there are still concerns. Reg: I retract the motion. Cheryl: hindi ba kaya ng chairperson na mag-govern sa transparency? hindi ba siya duty ng chairperson? Ryan: i think we all in essence should practice good governance. some functions can be done by the other committees. i think the committee is redundant. Mikhail: if we revisit the proposal, wala naman akong naaalala na ... yung proposal. hindi siya imposed and mandatory. JP: sa gender committee, we know that there are a lot of concerns and we want to achieve campaigns kaya siya ginawa. i think it's the same with good governance committee, na halos lahat ng hinaharap ng bansa ay nag root sa maling pamamahala. i think it's the time we take good governance as a serious matter. yun ay dapat nating ginagawa. maganda na mag-focus tayo na posible ung objective na nadedeliver top-down. parang services, kung hindi mo titingnan na seryoso ung problema, hindi natin makikita yung issue. Ben: sa local councils, hindi ba work yun ng college reps? also ung LCC, hindi ba kasama sila sa pag make sure na maayos ung local councils. ang laki kasi niya, i think nakaka overlap talaga siya and redundant siya sa ibang projects na meron tayo. if we want to push the campaigns, we maximize ung ibang committees. Mikhail: motion to divide the house: adopt the proposal for Good Governance committee? Motion to Divide the House by Mikhail Solitario Votes: Vice Chairperson JP delas Nieves: YES During plansem, we have to talk about the redundancy issue but on the essence of the committee okay naman. Councilors: Councilor Jethro David: YES It's a cause. The advocacy should start here in UP. It's a good way.

Councilor V Manalo YES Just address the issues on redundancy. Councilor Reg Rodriguez YES Well have to fix some possible redundancies with other committees but on the merits and significance of the committee, my vote is yes. Councilor Tolits Tanaka YES I agree that it is a cause at panahon na na bigyan ito ng focus. Councilor Walter Tamayo YES We don't want to overlap with other committees and I trust Raymond. Councilor Pola Lamarca YES I join in the opinion of Mr. delas Nieves Councilor AJ Montesa YES I will agree with the sentiment of recognizing it as a cause. In the human declaration of UN, good governance is something needed for development. In terms of the mechanisms, dapat nanggagaling na sa atin yun, pero iba parin yung may isang committee na nagpupush sa lahat ng committees and local councils. This can be more effective if implemented properly. The road just has to be clear with respect to other committees. For example, with feedback mechanisms, kailangan clear yung GG committee sa aspect niya. If we address those reseervations, I'm for the committeee. Councilor Jamie Bawalan YES We have to take good governance seriously as a council. We want more accountability. A lot of contentions and reservations.

College Representatives: College of Architecture Rep. Ralph Alba YES I believe na we are the microcosm of the Philippine society, we should be at the forefront when it comes to good governance. I can see that Raymond sees his committee in the longterm. College of Business Administration Rep. Aaron Letaba NO Yung mga campaigns na pinapaglaban ng good governance committee ay mahalaga but shouldn't be limited to just one committee but the entire council. It would be more appropriate if this campaign would be adopted by the entire council as a campaign. I still am not sold. Nakikita ko ang cannibalism sa EdRes. College of Education Rep. Tricia Roxas YES Good governance should be a campaign that we all adopt but take it as a cause and take it as a serious issue. In his campaigns, he took it to the national level and we should adopt it to the local level College of Engineering Rep. Cheryl Sy NO Same sentiment with Aaron. Di ako convinced. College of Engineering Rep. Leo Lobigan YES Time to take this matter seriously. College of Home Economics Rep. Sarah Esguerra NO College of Human Kinetics Rep. Roi Marcial YES Nakita ko yung initiative talaga ng committee pero parang di naman siya makakaapekto. Para siyang assistance to the committee and other council members. Yung pagpropose ni Raymond lagi niyang minemention na may mga matatapakan na committees pero ready siya to work with them. It's good to have this committee para maging constant siya. College of Mass Communications Rep. Ben Opinion NO

I have to agree with Aaron, macacannibalize talaga siya ng ibang committees. As elected leaders, we should all be practicing good governance. Within ourselves, we have to practice this. It's already there (as a campaign) College of Music Rep. Gabby Tinio NO College of Science Rep. Ryan Lintao NO Hindi naman namin dinidiscount yung importance ng good governance. Di lang natin basta dinadala pero ineembody parin natin. Same points with Aaron. Yung usapan parin ng redundancy ang importante dito. College of Social Sciences and Philipophy Rep. Allan Pangilinan NO Di lang siya separate entity. Pero di pala lahat ay kailangan sumali sa iggrade. Baka magkavalue judgement sa mga council. National College of Public Administration and Governance Rep. Mikhail Solitario YES Hindi naman imposibleng iresolve yung mga napagusapan at concerns na naraise. As an NCPAG student, I feel strongly for the cause of good governance. We have to convey a clear message to the students that we really want this to happen. Some people may view this as unnecessary but I maintain my stand. School of Economics Rep. Baba Foronda YES Noong una malaki yung reservation ko sa Peop Stug. GG as governance and Peop stug naman ay sector. With rampant corruption, its high time we do this. High time na maevaluate narin tayo. School of Library and Information Science Rep. Chen Tan NO School of Statistics Rep. IC Mendoza NO Nakita ko yung redundancy sa proposal niya. Pinapagkaitwalaan talaga tayo ng mga estudyante.

Discussion Proper Allan: concern ko internet sa centennial. do you have any plans for this? Ryan: sa cente, hindi siya hawak ng UP admin. pero pwede natin kulitin ung office of the campus architect. in coordination din with the cente house council para ma feel nila yung pressure. Leo: nagkaroon na silang signature campaign. nung meeting with chancellor Tan, ginagawa na raw ng paraan. Tolits: ano yung masasabi niyo sa transgender students sa dormitories. pag transgender woman ka, sa male wing ka pa rin nakalagay kahit head to toe Leo: maganda na magkaroon ng dialogue to explain their side kung saang wing nila gusto mapunta. maganda na magkaroon ng discussion about this. Ryan: sa boses with dormers, in partnerships with office of student housing and also sa gender committee, ma address yung concern Tolits: follow up, yung concern kasi its not based on the person being assigned. yung pinaka-onting number ng tao sa isang dorm room ay 2. walang rooms na nag-iisa lang. I think their concern is security or concerns na magiging room mates niya. to be honest, do you think were ready with the idea to have transgenders be put in a room they want? Ryan: I think were ready but we have to sit and have a dialogue with the administration and the dormers. Leo: I think were ready as long as there is a genuine consultation. All the concerns be raised in the consulation to address the concerns. Sarah: For Ryan, yung Greek week, how are you sure it will not cause more conflict among soros and frats? How will you not make sure if will not cause more trouble? Ryan: to have a cluster org summit sa soros and frats. the end result is to strengthen inter-soro and frat council. papasok yung role ng UP Barkada is to prevent or mitigate such incidents. when this was proposed to the soros and frats, they were receptive and they really like the end goal to prevent stereotypes. Sarah: For Leo, yung organization assistance online. Is it only for students or is it open for other people like outsiders? Leo: yung sa proposal ko, for students talga. maybe a different program or system for non students. Walter: For Ryan, for tutorials yung mga core courses you mentioned these are just science courses. ito lang ba yung nangangailangan ng assistance? Im a history major, maraming nahihirapan sa Kas. Ryan: with tutorials, service courses yung mentioned meaning theyre taken by different majors. but were not closing it to service courses. that is why we have an academic support coordinator who can find out what other courses. Walter: try to focus din on humanities and social sciences. For Leo, you gave a proposal sa suicide concerns. do you think the USC should step up and take an active role

Leo: I believe yes, we should be active in this. we need to address these kinds of concerns. we can come together with a world prevention game. Baba: since Econ loves competition, what is your edge over your opponent? Leo: malapit sa kin yung pagbibigay ng service sa constituents. di ko nararamdaman yung pagod, hindi ako naghahanap ng kapalit. may genuine service. Ryan: for me, for the past year of serving as a volunteer sa COFS, kilala ko na yung offices involved na nagbibigay ng BSS like OHS, UFS. alam ko na ung kalakaran sa mga offices na yon. Ralph: anong suggestions niiyo sa bukluran system? Ryan: like I mentioned, sa org recog process, we can coordinate with OSA sa mga technological innovation that can make the process easier. For example, confirming membership through UP webmail, maybe we can partner with those managing with CRS if it could be done through there instead. Leo: I also mentioned that I consulted with OSA. We can include this concern to a report to OSA na kailangan gawan ng paraan including this concern sa pagbabago ng system sa bukluran. Ralph: For Ryan, pa explain yung quiet zone. how would it work? Ryan: parang pag designate ng isang area na may sign na quiet zone. Ralph: For Leo, paano yung mentorship? how will you systematize this? Leo: initially, the BSS comm. will have clusters and bring in volunteers to train them as mentors. Ralph: For Ryan, since you mentioned drugs, whats your opinion on marijuana smokers? Ryan: I know people who use and they say that it releases stress. pero marami namang other stressrelieving activities like jogging. we have to teach na hindi lang ito yung way to relieve stress. we know that addiction is detrimental to people. Ralph: For both of you, kailangan ba sa basic student services ang toilets? Leo: for me, importante na kasama siya. lahat naman tayo gumagamit nito. sa dorms, pwedeng with WAM, we can ask alumni to help with rehabilitate the toilets and other facilities. Ryan: I also see its important as part of basic student services. dito papasok yung special concerns coordinator to tap alumni especially sa campaign For UP. lalo na sa SC may bayad pa. Allan: For Ryan, yung Greek Week, ayaw mo siya gawing org week? Ryan: May certain goal kasi yung sa Greek Week although we can explore yung possibility ng pagsama ng org. Allan: yung cluster org summit, dont you think function siya ng STRAW or MMC? Ryan: pwede siyang complimentary. kunwari sa MMC, hindi lang naman info dissem ang ginagawa sa BSS for example.

Allan: malaking bulk yung trabaho niyo lalo na sa dormers. Leo: Ive been a dormer since freshman. Mikhail: yung nature kasi ng BSS, napaka lawak. sa mga prinesent niyo, anong nakikita niyo sa sectors na pinaka nangangailangan ng atensyon? anong pageant title ang atake niyo dito sa BSS? Ryan: feel ko pinaka overlooked yung health related services. marami naman pero hindi siya nakikita dahil one, di alam ng students na may ganitong services. I think kulang siya ng attention. best in SECS. student empowerment . Leo: I think yung service na inooffer ng guidance and counseling. onti yung may alam pero maraming pinorprovide na services ng OCG. kung bibigyan ng title ung pageant ung atake ko sa BSS, Ill call it BSS. or service award. motion to extend IC: as a stat student, pinagbabawal ng admin yung tutorials. they discourage this kasi may faculty consultation hours na para magamit nila. maraming kumukuha ng STAT101 and other courses na nagtatake ng stat. what will you if there is a need kahit discouraged ito? Ryan: I think those concerns, syempre kailangan ng academic support. I think pwede naman upuan with the administration to have a dialogue and involve the students. to know why and have a resolution to have orgs provide such tutorials. Leo: I believe wala namang mali sa pagbibigay ng tutorial services like sa DLRC. we can have a dialogue with the professor. if the students dont find the need, they wont look for tutorial. IC: For Ryan, yung sa quiet zone, you said the college will provide a space. also for academic meetings. do you think all colleges can provide this? Ryan: I think kaya kasi di naman siya limited sa loob ng building. pwede rin naman sa outside or around the building. dapat hindi natin limitahan we should explore the vicinity. Pola: For Ryan, would you prefer of quanitity of BSS or quality of BSS? Ryan: Quality pa rin. Sa vision mission, we aim for efficiency, effectiveness and accessibility. Pola: For Leo, since youre a dormer, what do you think is the biggest or main concern of dormers? Leo: I think its facilities in the dorms. I consider the dorm as my second home so dapat okay yung facilities and condusive for studying. I believe we should give more attention to this issue. Pola: Since the name of the committee is BSS, ano yung isa at pinaka basic student service na all students would need? Leo: For me, I think it is to provide tutorials and other academic related services. Ryan: For me, I think its health-related services pa rin. Dito kasi nakasalalay yung wellbeing ng students. paano sila makakapasok and matututo ng maayos? paano sila makakasali ng orgs kung may problema sa wellbeing nila. we have to ensure holistic org.

JP: ano project niyo for grad students? sobrang sila palagi yung nasasantabi na grupo ng students. Ryan: yung Check UP, hindi siya limited sa undergrad. we know that grad students iba iba ung age nila. sila yung nakaka experience ng complications like hypertension, diabetes and ulcer. through Check UP, we can ensure that services are provided for them sa health service. Leo: sa scholarships, kasama rin yung grad students doon. may mga graduate students din na nagdodorm, and may services and activities tayo na gusto i-provide sa kanila. JP: sobrang important ung coordination with offices around UP for BSS. what do you think is the quality you have that you think the staff in the offices will like? I think not all students gusto ng staff ng offices, I think thats the reality. not all students know how to speak with the staff. Leo: I had a series of consultations around the offices in UP so from there, I already felt the connection. approachable and respectful. Ryan: I have 4H. Hardworking, Humble, Humor, Heart. Aaron: you enumerated a couple projects. if you were to choose 3 projects, what are they and how will you rank them? Ryan: third, skill-sharing seminars. second, check UP to promote physical and mental wellbeing. first, SHIP happens. I think pinaka malaking concern parin yung accessibility of education so this will provide opportunities to access education.. Leo: third, organization assistance like org recog. second, policy consultation. first, provide services that will cater to all. Tolits: pinapalayas yung ibang varsity players na naka-house sa IC. do you think tama ito? Leo: I read before that some international students have complained with the behavior of some varsity players. I think hindi nararapat na bigla silang pinaalis, hindi nagkaroon ng consultation, hindi nagkaroon ng dialogue with the concerned parties. nakikita ko kasi na naging biglaan. Ryan: unfair na biglang paalisin without due process. hindi nagkaroon ng malalim na discussion. for me, dapat mas inuupuan. hindi ka nagiging just sa mga students. we should also review policies, rules and regulations as to why these are done. JP: sana i-commit niyo lang din, to whoever will win, wala talagang services sa kanila I know na lapit sa inyong pareho ung BSS. what are your messages to one another? Ryan: weve actually got to talk to each other. kung sino man manalo sa atin, weve talked about na kukunin natin isat isa as BSS committee. Leo: we talked about not having hard feelings. sana magawa natin ito ng maayos ung mga projects natin since sobrang crucial and fundamental yung function ng BSS committee. End of discussion 10:25pm Proposed by Engg Rep. Leo Lobigan Deliberations Proper

Allan: feeling ko nakapag-avail sila ng student services. since four years na dormer si Leo, I would go for him. since alam niya yung problema ng dormer talaga. Jethro: hindi ako makapag decide pero nakikita ko na they compliment each other. malaki naman yung BSS. Allan: direct response, nakita ko rin ung mas health component ni Ryan. since meron namang SPOFIH. AJ: tinanong din kanina kung ano ung key part sa proposal nila, kay Ryan tumatak yung sa health. I think mas lubog talaga si Leo sa services na lubog talaga sa students. oo, pwede siya isama sa BSS. to be honest, very homogenous. I think sobrang specific yung kay Leo. he really told us how he talked with the different offices so may certain mastery na siya sa plans niya. Ralph: for me, its the same pero magkaiba ung structure. si Ryan, meron siyang Light UP! for Leo, meron ding UP police. Im torn. Ben: mganda ung point ni Jethro na nagjijive yung proposals nila. ung kay Leo, lubog sa dormers. si ryan lubog sa health. pati may experience din si Ryan sa COFS. and since nawala na rin siya, kayang punan ni ryan Mikhail: sa BSS you can never go wrong. magkakalaban lang sila in terms of prioritization. consultative si Ryan. pero si Leo one step ahead, may test of feasibility na siya kasi nakausap na niya ung offices. I appreciate ung proactive stance. maganda na he did his homework. Jamie: I super respect the fact that Leos approach was he went to the offices. doon niya kinukuha yung problem. I do have to manifest that its not going to optimal for the committee to have two heads. maraming time na nakukuha to coordinate. si ryan sa health, si leo sa acads and dorms. feel ko dapat one vision and approach lang sila as a committee. maraming makakain na oras. Cheryl: concern ko kasi co-rep ko si Leo. Im afraid na since ung BSS is heavy, natatakot ako na baka mahirapan siya sa college namin. since malalaking colleges ang science and engg. I think maganda na magiging co heads sila. sa sinabi ni JP, sa engg, may committees talaga na co-head. hindi naman nakakasagabal ung communication and mas naging successful ung committee nila Allan: may point na na-raise. pwede siyang tingnan in a different angle. si ryan mag-isa lang siyang rep. since nabagsakan natin dati on efficiency. V: wala akong masabing masama sa proposals nila kasi they both gave really good points. the thing is, if youre two good choices, you have to choose the better one. its hard to be the committee to have two to decide. between the two of them, I really feel like leo has the upper hand. may dorm issues din. and he focused on the academic part. Sarah: their edge individually can strengthen each other. nakita ko na both of them talked, they mesh together. nakita natin kanina that they talked before hand. nakita na noon palan ghindi naman magkakaproblem if they work together. If they get to work together, we see it as a strength as a committee na sure na matutugunan ung services. Walter: okay na sa kanila ung isa lang ung maging head. sa ni-raise ni Mikhail, sa prioritization. mas nagfofocus si ryan sa health and wellness na pwede naman pasok sa SPOFIH. kay Leo, nagfofocus siya sa mas vital na concerns like registration assistance. feel ko na mas natatamaan ni leo ung mga priority ng BSS.

Jamie: sa sinabi ni Cheryl, iba talga ung nature ng BSS. iba ung principles nila as committee heads. if you put together, they have magkaibang hugot. iba talaga ung pinanggagalingan nila. for me hindi talaga optimal. JP: iniisip ko nga kanina na possible nga na co-heads sila. but recalling old co-heads, pagdating sa USC, hindi talaga nagwowork. na-realize ko na mahirap ung trabaho ng isang BSS head. mahirap pag may kasama ka. ibang-iba ung nangyari kanina na handa ung isa na mag-contribute sa isat isa. Jethro: kung papipiliin ako sa isa lang, si Leo talaga pipiliin ko. in terms of priority, iba nga sila. pero sa akin, sayang eh. hindi siya black and white na choice. for me na hindi naman sila magkakaroon ng problema. pero from what JP said, I think pwede naman na isa ung head. Allan: nakikita natin na nagcocompliment ung projects nila. ung black and white kasi is ung vision nila. iba ung vision nila, same end pero different means. at this point, motion to divide the house to adopt coheads or just one head. motion retracted. Cheryl: last point, sa engg, may nature na may dalawang heads. never ko nakita na nagkaroon ng problem. I really think na magwowork na co-heads sila. JP: tanggap ko naman ung sa engg na nagfufunction na ganon. pero reiterate ko lang na sa USC we tried, for so long, we tried. buti sana kung parehong okay. importante kasi ngayon, willing naman na tumulong ung isa sa isa. walang mawawalang effort. ang tanging bagay lang naman na mawawala is ung position. pero ung risk na mag fail ung committee, mas malaki. Allan: nakita ko naman na naghead dati si april ramos na nag head ng project mag-isa. AJ: I think were assuming na kung isa lang ung head, the other one is willing to work to incorporate their plans. so I think there is virtually no cost kung isa lang. as to what JP said, may premium din ang position. I think Ryans plans are more complimentary to Leos plans. I really feel that the efficiency will be there, given the history of the co-head system. I think we should stick to what is a lot better. we shouldnt try to risk failure with the proposed co-head system. Cheryl: ung sa co-heads. na exhaust lahat ng ideas sa engg . kung pwede mo idivide ung BSS sa different sectors. pag under lang si Ryan, ung strengths ni Ryan sa COFS. mas babad siya doon. with leo, sa dormitories and pag consult niya. I think pag dalawa silang mag head, magiging equal and compliment sila with each other. if si leo yung head, isang sector lang si Ryan. I think mas magiging effective ung kcommittee. Motion to extend Tolits: I think ung co-heads sa engg, pareho kasi silang engg kaya same direction. pero magkaiba rin sina Ryan and Leo dito. Mikhail: I cant help but not react to the context of engg. sa engg, ung co-head ship is very project-based. di ko siya mapagparehas sa USC. in the past, sa track record ng engg, may nag work din na co-headship, meron din na hindi. gusto natin maiwasan. di ko rin gusto ung assumption na pagdadamot ni ryan ung sila na rin ung nagsuggest ng head-member relationship., Pola: I motion to divide the house: single-headship or co-headship for BSS.
