CSSP Week 2017 Opens with Poster Exhibit and the Inauguration of the Graduate Reading Room

 The Poster Exhibit of CSSP Week 2017

The College of Social Sciences and Philosophy (CSSP) officially opened its 33rd annual founding, CSSP Week, last February 21, 2017 with a poster exhibit and the opening of the CSSP Graduate Reading Room. The opening of the CSSP week was held at the Palma Hall Lobby from 9:00 to 10:00 in the morning. Gregorio E.H. del Pilar, PhD, the Associate Dean for Research, Extension, and Publications, took charge of the poster exhibit while Jeanette L. Yasol-Naval, PhD, the Office of the Graduate Program Coordinator, led the inauguration of the graduation reading room. 

 The program began with the opening remarks from Dean Grace H. Aguiling-Dalisay, PhD who related the theme of CSSP Week with the significance of the poster presentations as the first highlight of the weeklong founding. “Agham Panlipunan at Pilosopiya: Mapanuring Gabay sa Bayang Pilipino” as the theme was conscientiously manifested, Dean Aguiling-Dalisay remarks, mainly through the research which the college regularly produces. Social science and philosophy research generated by the college becomes a critical guide to inform the conscience of the Filipino nation.

Associate Dean del Pilar also spoke in behalf of the poster exhibit which consisted of 27 posters from the different departments, institute, and center of the college. Dr. del Pilar briefly recounted the history of CSSP with its origins as being a haven of the liberal arts and sciences. Palma Hall, once known as the College of Arts and Sciences, was a common place for interdisciplinarity before the split into the tri-colleges (namely: CSSP, College of Science, and College of Arts and Letters) occurred in 1983. The return to interdisciplinarity among and outside the fields of the social sciences and philosophy can be evident in the numerous researches done on disaster risk and management, which were also on display.

To further emphasize on the role of knowledge production through research, Dr. Yasol-Naval commented on the importance of the CSSP Graduate Reading Room. The graduate reading room, Dr. Yasol-Naval stresses, is a vital step in cultivating a space for the reading and writing of social science and philosophy dissertations of graduate students. These dissertations and theses would eventually contribute to the existing pool of knowledge systems in the various fields within the college.

Lastly, Michael L. Tan, PhD, the Chancellor of the University of the Philippines-Diliman gave a short message for the college. Being from CSSP, Chancellor Tan urged the college to continue being more visible in terms of research within the university and outside the institution through the larger Filipino society. After his message, Chancellor Tan was joined by Dean Aguiling-Dalisay and Associate Dean del Pilar for the unfurling of the ribbon by the poster panels to officially open the CSSP Week.

The audience of faculty, staff, REPS, and students were then brought to the CSSP Graduate Reading Room for its official inauguration through another traditional unfurling of the ribbon. Chancellor Tan, Dean Aguiling-Dalisay, Dr. Yasol-Naval, and the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, Ma. Theresa T. Payongayong, PhD facilitated the inauguration.

The program ended with a short salu-saloat the lobby after the opening of the graduate reading room. 

The event was hosted by the Chairperson of the Department of Sociology, Associate Professor Manuel Victor J. Sapitula, PhD.
