THE GRADUATE Program Office of the University of the Philippines-Visayas has been elevated to the UPV Graduate School by the UP Board of Regents.

The university said that the elevation in status was approved during the BOR’s meeting last April 28, 2022.

UPV’s graduate program offers a doctorate in fisheries, master of science programs, professional master’s programs, and a diploma program.

The GS shall be considered as one of the degree-granting units of UPV.

“In its proposed organizational structure, it will be headed by a dean and assisted by a college secretary,” the school said.

“Graduate faculty shall be drawn from academic units of the university and will be issued appointments to teach in the GS by the Chancellor,” it added.

The GS seeks to establish a research-oriented graduate education program, systematically sustain and mainstream knowledge creation as a key priority in UPV’s knowledge creation and public service agenda and to enhance its stature and recognition here and abroad.
