The University of the Philippines Center for Integrative and Development Studies (UP CIDS) extends its deepest sympathies and condolences to the family of former UP President Edgardo J. Angara on his passing. The UP CIDS was established as the policy research unit of the University of the Philippines System in 1985 during the term of Dr. Angara as UP President. In 1997, Dr. Angara supported the launching of the UP CIDS Public Policy Journal as an “authoritative journal for public policy guidelines in the Philippines.” The UP CIDS is also currently managing the UP President Edgardo J. Angara (UPPEJA) Fellowship Award which was founded by the UP Board of Regents in 1998. Initiated with funding from Dr. Angara, the Fellowship Award aims to promote high-level policy discussions and research on a wide range of topics that address national development goals and imperatives.
