Miriam College will host the 25th Asian Media Information and Communication Centre (AMIC) Annual Conference on September 27-29, 2017. This was made official through the signing of a Memorandum of Agreement between MC and AMIC representatives last February 8 in Miriam College.   The conference theme is “Rethinking Communication in a Resurgent Asia.”

The lead unit host is the Department of Communication, recognized as one of the country’s Centers of Development in Communication by the Commission on Higher Education in 2016.

“Time and again, our partnership with AMIC has provided our students and faculty the opportunity to connect and exchange ideas with communication research experts and peers in Asia and beyond,” said Miriam College President Dr. Rosario O. Lapus. “It is an honor for Miriam College to host this year’s international conference and provide the venue for more innovative learning and collaboration.”

Miriam College is a long-standing partner of AMIC. Large delegations of its faculty members and students represented the school as participants and paper presenters at previous conferences.

Dr. Ma. Margarita A. Acosta, MC Department of Communication chairperson, is both a member of the AMIC Board of Management (BoM) and one of the Centre’s country representatives. Immediate past MC Department of Communication chairperson, Prof. Lynda C. Garcia, also served as country representative.

Joining the Miriam College administrators during the MOA signing were AMIC representatives namely: Dr. Olivia Villafuerte, member, Board of Management; Prof. Ramon Tuazon, Secretary General; Dr. Crispin Maslog, Board of Directors chair; Prof. Jose Carlos, Board of Management Chair; and Edith Mendoza, COO of Huper Events and Productions Specialist International Corp.

In his Philippine Star column Funfare, writer Ricky Lo cited the multi-awarded Miriam College High School (MCHS) Glee Club as one of the artists/choirs that made a mark on the international stage in 2016.

Also cited were Sara Geronimo, the Philippine Madrigal Singers, The Voice Kids Germany winner Lukas Oscar Janisch, and Ballet Manila among other international competition winners for 2016. 

The MCHS Glee club bagged two Gold Diplomas at the 7th Musica Eterna a Roma Choral Competition held in Rome, Italy, last July 2016.

In 2012, they garnered the highest scores in two Categories at the World Choir Games in Cincinnati, Ohio, bringing home two Gold Diplomas. In 2010, they bagged two Silver Diplomas at the 6th World Choir Games (WCG) held in Shaoxing, China.

Miriam College, through the Miriam Adult Education (MAE), and the Schools Division of Marikina City signed a memorandum of agreement last January 17, recognizing the latter as “feeder schools of Grade 10 students to the MAE’s Senior High School Program.” There are currently 15 schools under the Division’s jurisdiction. 
 
The MOA gives MAE a wide breadth of opportunity to continue the Maryknoll Sisters’ legacy of service and mission to the poor and the underprivileged under the K to 12 educational reform. 
 
The partnership between the school and the Division started in School Year 2016-2017, the same year MAE implemented its Senior High School Program. The partnership was only formalized this month.
 
Present at the signing were Dr. Maria Lourdes Q. Baybay, Miriam College Vice President for Academic Affairs representing the general administration, and Dr. Helen Grace V. Go, Marikina Schools Division Superintendent, representing the Schools Division of Marikina City.
