UP to hold necrological rites for Ed Angara

Sharing is caring!

The University of the Philippines is set to honor former university president Edgardo Angara in necrological rites to be held on Friday, May 18, at Malcolm Theater.

The necrological rites will follow a Mass at 6 p.m.. Interment will follow over the weekend in Baler.

In a long tribute to Angara, UP described the late senator as a “tireless advocate for science, technology and innovation, multidisciplinary research to support national policymaking, education reform, and the people’s right to education.”

Angara served as UP’s 15th president from 1981 to 1987.

“For the UP community, Angara was the president who worked to strengthen UP’s general education program, installed the seven-year Integrated Liberal Arts and Medicine (Intarmed) Program, energized the liberal arts program and strengthened the humanities and sciences in UP, and built a multi-campus university organization. He also rallied UP alumni to support the University during its Diamond Jubilee celebration in 1983 and its Centennial celebration in 2008 as chair of the UP Centennial Commission, serving UP twenty years after his term as UP President ended,” a portion of the tribute reads.
