The Department of Political Science is holding a seminar-workshop for Institute scholars that aims to familiarize them with constitutional change and federalism on September 24, 2016 at the College of Science and Mathematics (CSM) building.
The seminar-workshop targets scholars from the Expanded Student Grants-in-aid Program for Poverty Alleviation (ESGP-PA).
The ESGP-PA is a government program that provides funding for the education of poor but deserving college students belonging to indigent households under the National Household Targeting System for Poverty Reduction identified by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).
The one-day seminar-workshop will feature the following resource persons who are members of the department, Dr. Elizabeth L. Codilla, Dr. Perla P. Palomares, Dr. Marilou S. Nanaman, and Prof. Yasmira Moner.
The Department will explain the process of constitutional change to the ESGP-PA scholars and try to help them understand what to expect from a federal form of government.
At the end of the seminar-workshop, the scholars are expected to have an understanding of the basic issues regarding constitutional change and federalism – two subjects that are constantly in the news and subject of much public discussion.
The activity is under the supervision of the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs (OVCAA), and in coordination with the ESGP-PA Coordinator, Dr. Gaudencio Petalcorin, and the program’s Personal Enrichment Program (PEP) Coordinator, Dr. Evelyn I. Dominguez, head guidance counselor. -RGO
