Prof. Darwin Manubag, Assistant Dean of the College of Arts and Social Sciences, was one of only three representatives from the Philippines who with 27 other university administrators in South East Asia attended the International Deans Course.

Manubag, who was in Osnabrück and Berlin, Germany, last June 14- 24, will travel to Vietnam in November and Indonesia in March, 2011.

This intensive training course, part of the DIES programme (Dialogue on Innovative Higher Education Strategies), is organized by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), the University of Applied Sciences Osnabrueck (FHOs), the German Rectors’ Conference (HRK), and the Centre for Higher Education Development (CHE) in cooperation with the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (AvH).

Manubag was also invited last June 2-6 by the Junior Chamber International as one of the trainers of the 2010 Singapore Junior Chamber International Asia-Pacific Conference in Singapore. Attended by Asian and European delegates, the conference applied his module on Volunteering and Social Responsibility.

Manubag has received invitations for other training opportunities in 2011 in Indonesia and Malaysia.
