Invitation to the CSWCD Alumni General Assembly, February 23, 2013

February 1, 2013


Our Dearest Alumni,


On February 18-23, 2013, the College of Social Work and Community Development will have a week-long celebration similar to other colleges and units in celebration of UP Diliman Month. And as practiced during the previous years, the alumni will come together during the same week for their General Assembly, to celebrate with the College and share experiences relative to their respective professional practices.


This year’s General Assembly to be held Saturday, February 23, 2013, is important for all of us, as it marks another milestone in the life of the UP CSWCD Alumni Association. As our Constitution and By-Laws state, the current Officers of the Association (who have been elected in 2011 from among the members of the Board) shall hold office for a period of two years, without prejudice to being reelected for another term, should the Officers wish to continue being members of the Board. Further, as stated in our legal documents, 8 new members of the Board will need to be selected by the Assembly, who will replace those who opted to vacate their positions given the Constitutional provision for tenure of the Board members . The seven remaining members of the Board elected in 2011 by alumni of their respective disciplines (Social Work, Community Development, and Women and Development) shall stay till February 2015, to provide continuity to the initiatives started by the 2011 Board/Officers.


In this year’s General Assembly, we would like to translate our specific commitments to serve the College through the identification of specific projects which are doable in a year’s time. These commitments can either be on an individual, group, or Batch basis. In this regard, we are inviting our Faculty members from the various departments, many of whom are alumni of the CSWCD, to share with us the strategic plans of the various departments, how far they have  gone in terms of achieving their  respective goals, and identify possible areas where the Alumni can possibly help, in terms of reaching those goals, and improving further the practices of the various disciplines in their (alumni) respective situations. Such sharing can provide the context for identifying our respective concrete contributions.


Initially, we have identified possible areas where we can possibly be of help to the College. These include, among others, acting as Resource Persons for specific content areas where the alumni have rich operational experiences; linking the College with other potential partner Institutions(local and international); offering  our offices and projects for fieldwork practice by students. On the lighter side of commitments, some of us have volunteered to enhance further the physical features of our College, like putting up a Zen-like garden in a specific spot.


And finally, we will recognize and thank formally the alumni who have shared their personal resources to provide the facilities and other equipment to make learning conducive for all students during their stay at the CSWCD.


So PLEASE come to the General Assembly at 1:00PM, February 23, 2013, Saturday, to be convened  at the Library. Bring the entire batch if possible, especially if you belong to Class 1953, ‘63, ‘73,  ‘88, and ‘98 (jubilarians all ).   Attached is the Program for the afternoon. As always, we need your committed presence on this special day.


Maraming salamat for your active presence and support since 2011.  Mabuhay tayong lahat!!!


Yours sincerely,



Maria Ines P. Bagadion

Call for Papers


The  College of Social Work and Community Development of the University of the Philippines is now accepting manuscripts for the  2013 issue of the Philippine Journal of Social Development (PJSD).  The deadline for submission of manuscripts is Feb. 21, 2013.


The goal of this journal is to promote analysis and dialogue about social development practice and issues in the fields of peace and conflict transformation and good governance in the Philippines and South-East Asian region.

Institutional Support and Editorial Staff

This journal is published by the College of Social Work and Community Development of the University of the Philippines Diliman.  The Editors of the journal are faculty members of the College of Social Work and Community Development of the University of the Philippines Diliman.

Statement of Policy and Themes/Subjects

The PJSD is a national refereed journal that provides a venue for the exchange of knowledge and views among professionals and academics engaged in social welfare, social development and social policy work.  It is committed to the promotion of socially responsive and appropriate interventions that engender social equality and challenge discrimination and oppression of marginalized sectors and populations.  Opinions expressed in the articles are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the official position of the College of Social Work and Community Development or the University of the Philippines Diliman.

The journal invites submissions pertaining to the theme: Peace and Conflict Transformation and Good Governance. At the national level, the current administration is actively promoting good governance among government agencies and local government units (‘matuwid na daan’) and signed a peace contract with the MILF in 2012.  What have been the outcomes and impact of these efforts to marginalized communities? What community – based initiatives exist to promote peace and good governance? The theme hopes to encourage articles that discuss and challenge social development theories, policies and programs in these fields.

Guidelines for Manuscripts

All manuscripts must be consistent with the following guidelines.

Titles and subtitles should be clear and concise.  Quotations over 40 words should be indented.  The use of footnotes is discouraged.  Notes are indicated by numbers in the text and printed at the end of the article.  Tables and figures should have short titles; please give sources and indicate their placement in the text.  Please supply figures as camera ready artwork.

Operation Amihan: Kontra Habagat – Bukas na Liham Mula sa Dekana ng CSWCD

9 Agosto 2012

Sa aming mga alumni, mag-aaral, kapanalig, at kaibigan:

Mahal naming Ka-Bayanihan,

Mainit na pagbati sa gitna ng walang humpay na ulan mula sa College of Social Work and Community Development (CSWCD).

Simula kahapon (Aug 8, 2012), umandar na ang ating damayan para sa mga nasalanta ng pagbabaha mula sa walang patlang na malalakas na ulan, na pinangalanan nating “Operation Amihan: Tugon sa Habagat” (nasa ilalim ng email na ito ang paliwanag). Nakapagpulong na ang Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) cluster ng Kolehiyo, natukoy na ang mga prayoridad sa mga kinikilusan nating mga komunidad, at nagsimula na rin ang pangangalap ng mga donasyon/ ayuda.

Kahapon din, sa loob lamang ng isang araw, nakapagpadala agad tayo ng suporta para sa 500 pamilya mula sa Brgy Sta. Ana, San Mateo, at Brgy. Payatas, Quezon CIty. Maraming salamat sa mga student volunteers na tumulong sa repacking ng bigas, tubig, de latang pagkain, noodles, biscuits at mga damit.

Patuloy ang ating pangingilak ng tulong para sa mga sumusunod na priority sites (ito ay mga lugar na hindi pa nakakatanggap ng ayuda):

1) Yumul Compound, Barangay Sta. Ana, San Mateo — 103 families
2) Barangay Sta. Ana Evacuation Center, Sta. Ana, San Mateo – 500 families
3) Barangay Kasiglahan, Montalban
4) Samahang Nagkakaisang Plastikan, Dona Nicasia, Commonwealth, QC. – 200 families
5) Demetrio at Aurora Village, Barangay Bagong Silangan, Qc. – 200 families

Marahil ay madadagdagan pa ang mga lugar na ito, ayon sa dami ng ayuda na ating matatanggap. Kailangan natin ang mga sumusunod:

1) Bigas
2) Tubig na inumin
3) De-latang pagkain (sardines, tuna, corned beef, atbp)
4) Noodle soup, arroz caldo packs, etc
5) Biscuits, crackers, bread, etc
6) Coffee, sugar, milk, chocolate drink

Maaari kayong magdonate in cash or kind hanggang August 22, 2012. Hinihiling naming dalhin ang mga donasyon sa tanggapan ng CSWCD sa Magsaysay Avenue, UP Diliman, Quezon City; Telephone No – 929-2477, 924-2143.

Para naman sa CASH donations, maari itong ideposito sa:

Account Name: Sikhay Kilos Development Association, Inc.
Acct. No.: 4069-8400-0021 (Peso Checking)
Bank: Philippine National Bank (PNB) – UP Campus Branch
Swift Code: PNBMPHMM

Patunayan nating muli na ang CSWCD at mga kapanalig nito ay organisado, maagap, at mapamaraan sa gawaing mapagkalinga para sa mga nasalanta.

Umaasang muli sa inyong pagiging bukas-palad at kahandaang maglaan ng ginintuang oras,


Dr. Rosalinda Pineda-Ofreneo
College of Social Work and Community Development
UP Diliman, QC

P.S. Sa Pilipinas, ang Amihan ay hanging galing sa Hilaga-Silangan (north-east), na tamang-tama lamang ang temperatura at hindi nagdudulot ng gaanong ulan. Sa ating alamat, ang Amihan ay ang unang nilalang sa sanlibutan; ito ang ibong tumuka sa punong kawayan upang makalabas at masalba ang unang mga tao, sina Malakas at Maganda.
