Part 1: Introductions, Questions on University Issues, National Issues

2010 USC Debate Forum – USC Chairperson Round (part 1) from Rachel Miranda on Vimeo.

Question # 1: Assuming that you win, how would you unite the different council members to achieve a consensus on matters that are political in nature?

Follow-up Question: So it seems that you are all results-oriented. So for instance, you have to release a political statement on a stand of the USC on a very divisive political issue. Are you willing to release a statement of behalf of the USC that might not necessarily reflect your own stance or your party’s stance but majority of the council members want that?

Question # 2: What is your stance on companies and corporations that donate money, equipment and facilities to the university? What do you think of the leasing of land by UP to private corporations?

Follow-up Question: If you believe that the idle assets of the university should be used, can you name some examples and what you plan to do with them? Or if you don’t believe that idle assets should be touched at all, then what do you plan to do with them? Do you plan to let them stay idle, or do you plan to do something else with them?

Question # 3: Should we have a grade requirement as a standard for the selection of the next Student Regent?

Follow-up Question: If you don’t believe that we should have a grade requirement, what do you think is the most important student interest that that Student Regent must represent? Or if you believe that we must have a grade requirement, what exactly is that grade requirement? Is a GWA of 3 enough, or should the Student Regent step up?

Question # 4: We have a particularly problematic current event. So can you please assess the government’s action when it comes to the arrest of the 43 medical workers who were allegedly members of the CPP-NPA?

Note: The continuation of the answers to this question is recorded in Part 2.

Part 2: National Issues, Personal Question

2010 USC Debate Forum – USC Chairperson Round (part 2) from Rachel Miranda on Vimeo.

Follow-up Question: Assuming that all legal safeguards are there, all rules were followed, there was no torture and there were no human rights violations, will it still be justifiable for the government to arrest and detain 43 people on suspicion of being communist insurgents?

Question # 5: If you were to vote now, who would you vote for as president in the national elections and why?

Follow-up Question: Do you plan to pursue politics after college or after law school?

Question # 6: I hope none of you will take this personally, or take any offense. But assuming that you cannot vote for yourself, who would you vote for among you three candidates? One final disclaimer: you cannot vote for abstain.

New CMC dean to boost college programs

By Rachel Miranda

Incoming College of Mass Communication (CMC) dean Rolando Tolentino said Thursday that he will expand the college’s offered programs in the tradition of an “independent and liberal” education amid the “growing state control of media”.

The eighth CMC dean said he will strengthen the college’s diploma and online master’s degree in journalism, and the undergraduate offerings in new media; as well as the certificate course in film, and the doctorates in both communications, and media and cultures.

“It’s time to strengthen the liberal character of our programs, that the media is liberating and our graduates are agents of liberating thought and action,” Tolentino said during the formal turnover at the CMC auditorium.

However, the Film and Audiovisual Communications professor acknowledged that CMC’s resources — such as its buildings — should be improved for these plans to take place.

“First is the upgrading of our classrooms. Second is the supporting structures of a new auditorium, a permanent canteen, tambayan, offices and library services as well as media archives and groundwork for a third and final building at the media complex,” Tolentino said.

The renovation and upgrade of the second-floor classrooms in Plaridel Hall, funded by major dailies Philippine Daily Inquirer and Philippine Star, has been ongoing since May.

Tolentino, a Philippine cinema, literature, and pop culture expert, promised to garner support from the faculty, staff and students to continue these projects.

He earned both his economics undergraduate degree and Philippine studies master’s degree at De La Salle University. Tolentino got his doctorate in film at the University of Southern California.

A member of the Congress of Teachers and Educators for Nationalism and Democracy (CONTEND-UP), Tolentino joked that there were benefits to being dean, such as a reserved parking space and a private bathroom in his office.

“I learned that there are more people I should smile at and greet while walking in the college. My friends and people who want to be my friend suddenly increased,” he added.

During the ceremony, outgoing dean Elena Pernia presented a tambuli, a native wind instrument made from carabao horns and the symbol for CMC, to Tolentino marking the beginning of his three-year term until 2011.

The event was the second turnover ceremony for the deanship in CMC. It started in 2006 when Nicanor Tiongson gave way to Pernia’s term as head of the college.

Representatives from different sectors within the college such as the faculty, administrative and Research, Extension and Professional staff, students, alumni and retired professors shared their messages for both the outgoing and incoming deans.

Also present were UP President Emerlinda Roman and other university officials.
