The University of Santo Tomas hosted an appreciation luncheon for the members of the media last June 16, 2017 (Friday), in grateful appreciation of the different organizations’ partnership and coverage of the University’s achievements, milestones, and events.
In his welcome remarks, the Very Rev. Fr. Herminio V. Dagohoy, O.P., PhD, Rector of UST, heaped praises on the media for their role as UST’s partners in reaching out to a wider audience. He thanked the media for the articles written, the shows broadcast, and the coverage provided to UST in all these years of partnership.
Part of the event was the introduction to the press of the expanded Thomasian Speakers Bureau, comprised of UST professors / faculty members who specialize in different fields.
The Bureau, first launched in 2014, facilitates easy access for the media to get in touch with UST’s experts, especially when burning issues are being discussed and academic opinions are needed.
