The Thomasian Speakers Bureau

About the TSB

The Thomasian Speakers Bureau (TSB) is composed of the University’s esteemed and renowned faculty members who will serve as resource persons in their respective fields of specialization. The TSB members were selected by the Office of the Vice-Rector for Academic Affairs, and the list of members was approved by the Office of the Secretary-General.

The organization of the TSB will facilitate media access to UST resource persons through a simplified and systematic processing of the media’s need for Thomasian experts. This program aims to strengthen even more the partnership between the University and the media as UST contributes to the active exchange of ideas in the wide arena of intellectuals and change agents working toward social transformation.

Behind the Thomasian Speakers Bureau is the Office of Public Affairs, which came up with the idea of bringing together some of the University’s finest minds in response to usual and frequent media requests for Thomasian professionals to interview, especially on issues of public interest.
