Katrina J. Zemo with the participants of “Relationship Staus: It’s Complicated” talk in Li Seng Giap Auditorium, UA&P.

To build upon its advocacy of promoting the good message of chastity and pure love, the UA&P student organization CATALYST, in partnership with CEP Philippines, held a conference entitled “Relationship Status: It’s Complicated” last May 16, 2016 at the Li Seng Giap Auditorium. The event, which was attended by more than a hundred people, featured international speaker, retreat leader, and author, Katrina J. Zeno, MTS.

As an expert on teenage romance, Zeno traced the root of complicated relationships to the numerous differences that exist between males and females. With a gleeful demeanor, she explained how men are like waffles and how women are like spaghetti – tying it to numerous emotional and psychosocial distinctions between the two sexes. She further emphasized the need to learn one’s temperament and “love languages” – the distinct ways through which an individual manifests love.

However, the meat of Zeno’s talk was on how men and women were also similar despite the differences she mentioned beforehand. In order to discuss these similarities, Zeno focused on major points from Pope Saint John Paul II’s literary series entitled Theology of the Body, which centered on the idea that “each human being is called to exist for others as a gift.” Whatfollowed is an understanding that relationships should be about two persons who givethemselves wholly as a “gift” to the other.

The conference aimed to address the entanglements that commonly plague today’s romantic relationships. It also served as a follow-up to the highly successful Real Love Revolution, which touched the lives of more than 6,000 individuals last November 7, 2015.

CATALYST, the university’s only leadership, outreach and advocacy organization, along with CEP Philippines, the nation’s leading provider of character formation seminars and resources, spearheaded the event in hopes of keeping the fight for real love and the virtue of chastity alive among the youth.

2013_09_30_16_53_42UA&P has recently been recognized by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) as one of the Delivering Higher Education Institutions (DHEIs) under the Commission’s Faculty and Staff Development Program in the K to 12 Transition Period. Under the program, UA&P will provide graduate education for faculty and staff of higher education institutions (HEIs) through the University’s Applied Business Economics Program (ABEP) and Strategic Business Economics Program (SBEP).

The Faculty and Staff Development Program in the K to 12 Transition Period is part of CHED’s efforts  in strengthening higher education  to equip 70 percent of HEI faculty with graduate degrees by 2021 .  The graduate education to be provided by DHEIs will aid educators in building competence, national and cultural rootedness, and in enhancing consciousness and ethical moorings. Authorized DHEIs will accept HEI faculty and staff funded by CHED, and may also admit non-CHED-funded faculty applicants into their graduate programs.

According to the Commission, one of the major limitations for many faculty members in pursuing graduate studies is the lack of available quality graduate education programs across disciplines and regions in the country, which consequently limits efforts to upgrade qualifications of HEI faculty.

UA&P is  offering HEI faculty and staff graduate education programs under its School of Economics. ABEP is designed for those who assist top executives in corporate planning and research and for line people who wish to build strong theoretical foundations in planning. Using UA&P’s wealth of local and international research data, it allows graduates to relate current economic conditions and issues to business operations.

SBEP is designed typically for top management executives who handle strategic and long-term policy issues that confront their organizations. It will enable them to identify the fundamental trends and changes taking place in the national and international economies, and understand how these influence the performance and prospects of regions, sectors, industries, and their specific business firms.
