In August to December 2017, following the appointment of Teresa S. Encarnacion Tadem, Ph.D. as Executive Director, the UP Center for Integrative and Development Studies (UP CIDS) revived its programmatic thrust established in the 1990s under the directorship of Ma. Cynthia Rose B. Bautista, Ph.D. Nine programs tackling policy questions on education and capacity-building, development, the social sciences, as well as the Local-Regional Studies Network were conceptualized last year.
UP CIDS also hosted a number of activities such as public lectures, roundtable discussions, and conferences in August to December 2017 with guests from the University, government agencies and civil society organizations, as well as scholars from the Asia-Pacific, Europe, and the Latin American regions.
In 2018, the programs convened by UP CIDS will be implementing their conceptualized agenda and activities in line with the role of the University of the Philippines as a research university in various fields of expertise and specialization on issues of national significance.
