CSSP Outstanding Alumnus or Alumna Award

The College of Social Sciences and Philosophy was founded in 1983 following the division of the College of Arts and Sciences into three independent units. However, it can trace its history to as early as 1910 with the establishment of the Department of History under the University of the Philippines College of Liberal Arts. Since then, the College has produced countless graduates who would go on to chart the futures of their communities, their country, and the world.

To celebrate the achievements of its graduates, the College is launching the CSSP Outstanding Alumnus or Alumna Award in preparation for its 35th anniversary in 2018.
