DLSU-Manila admin backs Brother Andrew for VPA post

Brother Andrew Gonzalez, FSC has been nominated as DLSU-Manila’s Vice President for Academics effective school year 2001-2002.

DLSU System President Brother Rolando Dizon, FSC made the announcement to the academic community last February 9 following the resignation of Dr. Wyona Patalinghug from the post. Patalinghug expressed interest in returning to full-time teaching effective this coming school year.

“We express our gratitude to her for having served well as VPA for over three years, and wish her success in her future endeavors,” Brother Roly said in his memo.

Following a consultation with the Council of Deans, Executive Vice President Dr. Carmelita Quebengco recommended to Brother Roly’s office the appointment of Brother Andrew.

The recommendation will be submitted to the DLSU Board of Trustees for confirmation.

“Please join me in warmly welcoming back Brother Andrew to the DLSU-Manila campus. Let us accord him our full and earnest support,” Brother Roly said.

Brother Andrew was DLSU System President for 16 years, beginning 1979 until 1991, and again in 1992 up to 1998 before joining the former administration cabinet as Department of Culture, Education, and Sports (DECS) Secretary.

As VPA, he will oversee the different colleges, namely, the College of Liberal Arts, the College of Education, the College of Engineering, the College of Science, and the College of Business and Economics. The office is also in charge of the University’s various graduate studies programs.

Meanwhile, Brother Andrew started his new role last week as president and publisher of the DLSU Press. He replaced Dr. Isagani Cruz, who joins the government as DECS undersecretary.

Cruz also left his post as DLSU-Manila’s chair of the Departamento ng Literatura at Wikang Filipino. Named DLWF’s officer-in-charge is Dr. Oscar Campomanes.
