UP Visayas is deeply saddened by the death of Prof. Martin Gregorio on February 2, 2016 from prostate cancer. A resident of Mandurriao, Iloilo City, Gregorio was a faculty member of the UP Diliman College of Arts and Letters. He served as UPV Vice-Chancellor for Administration from 1988 to 1990 and as Executive Assistant to the Chancellor from 1991 to 1992 during the term of UPV Chancellor Francisco “Dodong” Nemenzo (August 29, 1989 – August 31, 1992).
Gregorio eventually became Nemenzo’s Vice-President for Administration when the latter became the UP President (1999-2005).
In 1992, Gregorio’s family started a scholarship grant for deserving students of the UP High School in Iloilo, an endowment that continues even today.
