The University of Science and Technology of Southern Philippines (USTP) is seeking six additional members for its Board of Regents (BOR) who may contribute to the growth of science and technology (S&T) in Northern Mindanao.

In a press conference Wednesday, Engr. Bronson Mabulay, a member of the five-person search committee, said USTP has established projects and partnerships with different industries but shall proceed when new members will fill the 11-seat BOR.

“They should show expertise in the field of S&T, engineering, mathematics, and help direct the university to the goals of innovation (and industry partnerships),” said Mabulay, who is the USTP’s director for innovation and technology solutions division.

Under the Republic Act 10919, which created the state-run USTP, the institution is required to have 11 members of the BOR.

The USTP search committee is now looking for four chief executive officers (CEOs) and two academicians to serve a fresh four-year term at the BOR.

The BOR membership is composed of university representatives of the faculty, students, alumni, and officials, as well as government and private sector representatives.

Search committee member Reuben Vegafria, who is also the Northern Mindanao Governor of the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industries, said any person or group is encouraged to submit their nomination on or before the deadline on Oct. 15.

“This is the first time that the USTP announced nominations through media,” Vegafria said, adding that rigid screening and interviews will be conducted after the deadline.

Additional information and nomination forms can be accessed via the USTP website, he said. (PNA)
