The Institute of Fisheries Policy and Development (IFPDS), College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences (CFOS), UP Visayas (UPV) conducted a training-workshop on fisheries science management at the Audio Visual Room, Graduate and Continuing Education Building (GCEB), UPV Iloilo City campus on September 11-12, 2017.
The two-day training was part of a collaboration between UPV and Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), hence it was attended by participants from both parties. Participants from UPV included faculty members from CFOS and College of Arts and Sciences.
The UPV Peer Facilitators of different dorms as well as PFs from outside the dorm area are always ready to serve students.
Here’s one fact – students of the university are vulnerable to stress. Because of the existing academic load, extra-curricular activities, and organizational duties, students are exposed to stressful situations and anxieties.
The UPV Peer Facilitators or PFs (formerly UPV Junior Counselors) are trained students of the university that can help in coping with university life, especially to freshmen who are in need of guidance. Currently based at the UPV dormitories, the UPV PF extends help to anyone in the campus. Banwa PFs were also organized to assist those students not staying in the dormitories. The rehabilitation of the Peer Facilitators’ Office, located at the CUB basement, near the offices of guidance counselors is currently being done.

Yap, Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs (VCAA) and faculty member of the College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences, UP Visayas represented the university during the Signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the National Taiwan Ocean University (NTOU), which was recently held at Keelung, Taiwan.
