The Council of Leaders (COL) came together on November 21, 2016 to attend the Women and Gender Institute’s Young Women Leadership Training entitled “Tracing the Contour of Feminist Transformative Leadership: Perspectives of Youth Leaders”. This was done in collaboration with the Office for Student Affairs and Sangguniang Mag-aaral ng Miriam. According to the participants, they did not expect much from the training but after the workshop many participants’ expectations were fully met “because of how the speakers tackled and deconstructed leadership and women empowerment”.
They also shared that the speakers were “influential and great role models”. The training team was composed of Rina Fulo, WAGI training and research assistant, Brenda Pureza former Sanggunian President of Miriam College, and Rej Torrecampo former International Studies Society president.
The training on Gender and Leadership aimed to transform existing models of leadership to reflect the crucial role of gender equality.
The Higher Education Unit (HEU), in partnership with the Environmental Studies Institute, celebrated the Environment Week from November 14 to 18, 2016 with the theme #GREENnovate.
The week-long celebration saw the involvement of all three colleges in exciting and fun activities. The College of Business, Entrepreneurship, and Accountancy (CBEA) put up an exhibit titled “GREENnovate, the CBEA Way!” at the College Chapel Foyer. It featured upcycled products from five upcycling companies incubated by Entrepreneurship students. Service-learning projects, which include a business plan for Barangay Greater Lagro, CBEA’s adopted urban poor community, were also put on display. The objective of the exhibit was to promote social and green entrepreneurship.
The College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) featured the projects of students from the Departments of Science, Environmental Planning and Management, International Studies, Communication, and Languages also through an exhibit.
Highlighting the activity was the visual arts project of Applied Arts students. Before mounting the exhibit, they attended a seminar on Climate Change facilitated by Dr. Angelina Galang.
Complementing the CAS project was the showing of a documentary film titled, “Nature is Speaking” by the Language Learning Center.
Third year students of the College of Education (CEd) held a service-learning activity at the Day Care Center of Barangay Loyola Heights on November 14, 2016. The activity gave CEd students the opportunity to experience hands-on teaching to young children. They administered art, music and movement activities, focusing on the Seven Environmental Principles.
On the same day, the fourth year CEd students conducted a puppet show at the Child Study Center to encourage the First Step, Nursery, and Kinder pupils to do their share in protecting and taking care of the earth. A workshop on recycled instructional materials was also conducted by Genevieve Goño for second year CEd students to develop their creativity and resourcefulness as future educators.
The celebration of the Environment Week at the HEU was led by Elvira Santos of CBEA, Rechilda Ulili of CAS, and Clarissa Ligon of CEd.

Joseph “Chay” Cruel, former faculty of the College of Business, Entrepreneurship, and Accountancy and Miriam College alumnus received the 2016 Outstanding Achievement in Marketing Management award from Agora. The award was given on October 26, 2016 at the PICC in Pasay City.
Cruel graduated in 2008 with a degree in Business Administration. He is currently the vice president of international and business development for the non-alcoholic division of Asia Brewery. To date he is the youngest recipient in this Agora Awards category.
Established in 1979, the Agora Awards recognizes outstanding efforts in Marketing by individuals and companies in the industry. Past awardees in the same category include businessman and former senator Manuel Villar and former McCann Erickson CEO and Maryknoll alumna Emily Abrera.
As part of Miriam College’s 90th anniversary celebration, an ‘underground’ activity known as “Project 9.0” was organized by the Office of the President involving two teams from the High School and from the College. The latter was represented by BA Communication students Paola Neyra, Claire Uy, Elaine Nasi, and Patricia Ortile.
The project proposals were presented to and judged by Miriam College President Dr. Rosario Lapus, Director for Innovation Development and High School Principal Dr. Edizon A. Fermin, Marketing and Communications Head Romualdo A. Romualdo, Communications and Media Coordinator Dahl Bennett, and Special Project Coordinator Mian Arcega last August 12, 2016 at the Board Room.
Both teams were tasked to come up with a high-impact, low-cost, and feasible project. After careful deliberation, two ideas were picked from the HEU that included a Post-It installation wherein students wrote short messages to the future MC community. These messages were posted on tarpaulins located in the Lower School, Middle School, High School, College, Miriam Adult Education, and Southeast Asian Institute for the Deaf. The Post-Its were later gathered in a jar to be opened after a couple of years for reflection.
The other idea highlights the four core values of Miriam College – truth, justice, peace, and integrity of creation —and will be reflected in feel-good statements incorporated in tricycle stickers which will be distributed at the end of this year.
Project 9.0 was an unforgettable experience for the Communication students who met the challenge with flying colors. By Denise Villalobos, BA Comm
