Three new officials join OVPAA

The Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs (OVPAA) has new administrators on board. 

Former UP Diliman vice chancellor for administration Mary Delia Tomacruz will be heading R&D resource management as one of the four assistant vice presidents for academic affairs. 

Dr. Luis Sison, vice chancellor for research and development of UP Diliman from 2006 to 2011, is now at the helm of the OVPAA-affiliated Technology Transfer and Business Development Office.

Finally, Dr. Aaron Joseph Villaraza, associate professor at the Institute of Chemistry, will be providing leadership to the Office of International Linkages as its first deputy director.

A warm welcome to our new UP System officials!
