About the Website

The Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs (OVPAA) website features the academic and research programs of the University of the Philippines System and provides information on curriculum, research and other academic matters, announcements of grants, awards and other academic events. We hope that through the OVPAA website, we can make the dissemination of academic information to each UP constituent more uniform and efficient. It will provide downloadable forms and online submissions, and it will continue to evolve as we move towards our vision for a One UP! Prof. Gisela Padilla-Concepcion, Ph.D. Vice President for Academic Affairs
