Dr. Edieser Dela Santa is UP AIT's New Dean
UP AIT welcomes Assoc. Prof. Edieser Dela Santa as the new Institute Dean.
Prof. Dela Santa was officially appointed by the UP Board of Regents on November 24, 2016. He was the sole nominee for Deanship by the UP and AIT Community.
Prof. Dela Santa has been teaching in the Institute for 16 years, and has had several local and international academic journal publications on tourism policy, his field of specialization. Starting in 2013, he has been a repeat-awardee of the Centennial Professorial Chair Award (given by UP Diliman) and the International Publications Award (awarded by the UP President).
He obtained his Doctor of Philosophy from the University of Otago, New Zealand in 2010.
Before becoming Dean, Prof. Dela Santa held several directorial positions in the Institute: as the College Secretary from 2012 to 2016, as the Director of Academic Affairs from 2010 to 2012, and as the Director of Tourism Research and Extension Services from 2004 to 2005.
During the Public Forum on the search for the next AIT Dean held last October 24, Prof. Dela Santa shared his vision of a more competitive UP AIT in the areas of education, research, extension services and human capital development in the Philippines and in the Southeast Asian region. To realize this, he outlined the importance of what would be the focus of his administration-- crafting enabling programs to strengthen the performance of AIT in the following areas: academic degree program development, facility development, resource generation, faculty development, student growth, and the promotion of academic linkages and extension services.
Dean Dela Santa will be serving his term until November 2019.
