The upcoming search for the cluster heads in UP Cebu will be the acid test of the OIC leadership. UP Cebu, as per the structure approved by the BOR, will consist of four clusters namely: Sciences (NSMD and DCS), Social Sciences (SSD and PED), Humanities and Management.
Nominations will start this Monday.
We will see if there will be a credible search process and more importantly, a credible selection and appointment of cluster heads. Democratic consultation and respect to the voice of the majority must be the guiding rule. The UP Cebu community will no longer accept appointments made mainly on the basis of executive (i.e. dean’s) prerogative.
The All UP Academic Employees Union, All UP Workers Union, and the different student formations will be vigilantly watching the whole search process for the cluster heads.by
