Andrelita Cenzon, Associate Professor

University of Asia and the Pacfic (UA&P) President Jose Maria Mariano conferred the rank of Associate Professor on philosophy department chair Maria Andrelita Cenzon, Ph.D. in a ceremony last Friday.

Dr. Cenzon is the third female educator with such rank in the University and the thirteenth to be granted one.

The new associate professor has been a faculty member of UA&P for the past nineteen years. She has three doctorate degrees: Ph.D. in Education from the University of Navarra in Spain (1982), Ph.D. in Systematic Theology from the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross in Rome (Summa Cum Laude, 1989), and Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Santo Tomas, Manila (Summa Cum laude, 1999). She obtained her Master in Education from the University of Navarra (1982) and her Master in Theology from the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross (Summa Cum Laude, 1987).

She has devoted almost three decades to teaching theology and philosophy. She has presented papers in international conferences here and abroad and has publications on Theology, Philosophy, and Education. Her extension activities in these same fields have been continuous and valuable for their deep impact.

Dr. Cenzon is currently the Chair of the Department of Philosophy. She was a member of the Academic Council and of the Standards Committee, and Academic Director of CAS.

Her contribution to liberal education—expounding the philosophy behind it, developing its curriculum and pedagogy—in the University is foundational. She has likewise studied the Christian perspective in the undergraduate curriculum, which has led to the philosophy series for faculty and other seminar-workshops for faculty development. She conceptualized the themes for the Conferences on Education and Culture (CE&C) for several years, in effect setting the direction for this international conference.

The University’s Board of Trustees especially congratulates her for the pioneering mentoring theory and praxis she has developed and documented.
