he Filipino maginoo (gentleman) seems nowhere in sight these days. Only a few men now offer their seats to ladies and the aged in public transportations. A handful can be seen respectfully opening doors for women and their elders. A pitiful few would care to pick up something for a lady who has dropped something. The social graces of young Filipino men today need a lot of improvement. Wala na yung pagka gentleman. The way our men relate to people, with video games and all, parang may sariling mundo na, explains Karlo Tablizo, director of the Kapuluan Study Center. One of the issues that the Kapuluan Study Center addresses is that on the vanishing gentlemen, being a center that caters to male students of the University of the Philippines (UP). The idea is for them to become Christian gentlemen and the way to do it is to ensure that their spiritual formation is okay, Tablizo VANISHING TRIBE Through values formation programs, the Kapuluan Study Center hones young men from the University of the PhilippinesDiliman to be the gentlemen that this society badly needs. shares.

CAMPUS BEAT PISAY HEAD IS NEw SEI CHIEF
PHILIPPINE Science High School executive director Dr. Filma G. Brawner is the new director of the Department of Science and Technology Science Education Institute, the countrys science and technology human resource development agency. Brawner replaces Dr. Ester B. Ogena who is now the president of the Philippine Normal University.

As SEI chief, Brawner intends to improve the administration of the DoST Science Scholarship Program which caters to over 10,000 undergraduate and graduate scholars in the country. She said that in support of the present leadership of the DOST, she will implement programs and projects in science and technology human resource development that will help produce local technologies and products that will in the long run help improve the lives of the poor or disadvantaged. Brawner is also rooting for increasing the capability of SEI to adapt to current trends in science and technology and enabling it to come up with innovative programs and projects that will uplift the level of science culture especially of the youth. Brawner is an expert in research and evaluation in science education, earning a doctorate degree in Education, Research and Evaluation at the University of the Philippines in 1990.

JRU turns into Rizals world


ne of the more important milestones in the history of the Jose Rizal University (JRU) was when it changed its name from Far Eastern College School of Accounts, Commerce, and Finance, to Jose Rizal College in 1922. It was a homage to Rizals patriotism and heroism which has always inspired excellence in the JRU community. Thus last week, to honor Rizal on his 150th birth anniversary, JRU turned its campus into a gateway to the past as it was transformed into a colonial period plaza where students, faculty, administrators, and alumni all dressed up in Spanish era outfits. Everyone got into the cosplay vibe. Pondahans (sari-sari stores) were even set up so friends and guests could sample delicacies during the 19th century. Dioramas that portrayed different stages in Rizals life were also constructed. Ms. Gemma Cruz-Araneta and Jose Arguelles Sr., direct descendants of Dr. Jose Rizal, were resource speakers in a lecture/forum

minds of students the significance of his contributions. The day culminated with a dinner dubbed as Piging 1861 held at the newly- constructed library. The banquet showcased dishes featured in Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo, as well as some of Rizals favorites.

in UP which has a diverse student body. There was a guy from Iglesia ni Kristo, he was surprised that some of the guys here are kasamba niya. We have respect and friendship here, Tablizo shares. Most members are Engineering, Accounting, Economics, and Molecular Biology students from UP The center caters to an average . of 30 to 40 students per semester who need not pay any membership fees. Funds come from donations and from the seven regular staff. Students are just asked to take part in doing the chores, like covering books, watering the plants, cleaning, painting, etc. If we have conferences, the students are the ones who organize them. When we teach catechism in urban poor areas, the students also help, Tablizo says. ONE-ON-ONE MENTORSHIP Aside from seminars, outreach programs and religious activities, the Center also holds one-on-one mentorship for its members. The seven staff members serve as mentors, who first and foremost, have been chosen for being good role models who lead by example. Personal mentorship is akin to a counseling session but involves a more personal connection because the mentors and the mentee are almost like family living in the Center. According to Tablizo, in general, young men today have three main problems family, sexuality, and relationships. Other peripheral

issues involve schoolwork, time management issues, and peer problems. We talk to the members on a weekly basis to see the strengths and weaknesses of the young man and convert the weaknesses to strengths. Simple things like waking up on time, we teach that they have to have a schedule. Parang kuya ka lang, pero may follow-up, Tablizo explains. There are also Catholic doctrine classes and human formation sessions with topics that range from grooming, etiquette, writing skills, and studying habits. The residents also engage in sports like basketball, football, frisbee, etc. FROM CHALLENGE TO CHANGE Tablizo admits that it is much harder to invite students to the Center today.

The guys who come here are normally invited by their friends. There are a lot of distractions today. All centers have this same difficult in getting members, he laments. Tablizo also shuns the elitist image of the Center. He says their members come from the richest families to the poorest, from the school jock to the school nerd and everyone is welcome. May mga members din kaming member ng warring fraternities. But here, they are all friends. There was one time when two leaders of different frats met here during a meditation, but this is neutral ground so they ended up being friends, he says. Amid the challenges of getting members, the Center is just happy that they are bringing about changes to these young men in the hope that a new generation of Filipino gentlemen will emerge sooner than later.

THE center regularly conducts seminars and forums on relevant and important issues for its members.
