Autonomous Unit Status
During its 1,260th meeting on September 24, 2010, the U.P. Board of Regents approved the proposal for the elevation of the U.P. Visayas Cebu College to an autonomous unit under the Office of the U.P. President. This gave U.P. Cebu "more freedom and flexibility to prepare for a constituent university status in the next five (5) to seven (7) years."
During this transition, U.P. Cebu was tasked to focus on the following 10-point agenda:
- Formulate strategic directions for U.P. Cebu focusing on its role as an institution of higher learning in the region within the framework of the U.P. System
- Formulate a desired faculty development profile including strategies for achieving the profile
- Tighten faculty recruitment policies and procedures consistent with the desired faculty development profile
- Improve the quality of undergraduate programs, at the same time emphasize quality graduate education
- Formulate mid- and long-term research agenda that will lead to a strong research culture in U.P. Cebu
- Nurture an IT culture in U.P. Cebu
- Create and develop a program to promote the cultural heritage of the region
- Formulate resource generation framework and program specifying strategies and mechanisms for sustainable fund-raising and income generation
- Formulate physical campus development program
- Undertake all the above activities under and autonomous set-up of the U.P. System

“His Majestys Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.”
—A.J. (Arthur James)
“There is a totalitarian regime inside every one of us. We are ruled by a ruthless politburo which sets ours norms and drives us from one five-year plan to another. The autonomous individual who has to justify his existence by his own efforts is in eternal bondage to himself.”
—Eric Hoffer (19021983)
“During the Suffragette revolt of 1913 I ... [urged] that what was needed was not the vote, but a constitutional amendment enacting that all representative bodies shall consist of women and men in equal numbers, whether elected or nominated or coopted or registered or picked up in the street like a coroners jury. In the case of elected bodies the only way of effecting this is by the Coupled Vote. The representative unit must not be a man or a woman but a man and a woman.”
—George Bernard Shaw (18561950)
