KAPIHAN NG BAYAN SA UP
A Public Service Project of the
UP Alumni Association
The KAPIHAN NG BAYAN SA UP aims to serve as a regular forum for intelligent and constructive discussion of issues relevant to our development as a nation. In a democracy, such public discourse is a valuable tool for guiding our national leaders and all citizens as we collectively confront and attempt to resolve whatever challenges are posed by these issues.
To achieve these goals, KAPIHAN NG BAYAN SA UP shall:
· Adopt a strong bias not only for airing views and opinions on issues but for uncovering relevant facts and reasoned options for policies or actions on the given issues.
· Select issues that are of great national significance, i.e., those that capture great public interest, that have festered and remained controversial over a long period, or that seems too complex and insoluble.
· Make available, through carefully selected resource persons and discussants, the unique strengths and resources of UP in terms of expertise in various disciplines, and in knowledge generation through scientific research.
· Work for the widest possible public exposure of the forum through partnerships with print, broadcast, internet and other communications media.
