It’s that time of the year, mga Iskolar ng Bayan!
On behalf of the University Student Electoral Board (USEB), we hereby issue the call for the election of the members of the University Student Council (USC) and the College Student Councils (CSC) who will serve for Academic Year 2021 – 2022. The conduct of the 2021 Student Elections is guided by the approved 2021 Special Guidelines on Remote Student Elections, an addendum to the 2010 Revised University of the Philippines Diliman Student Election Code.
A remote electoral process was deemed necessary due to the remote learning setup amid the ongoing and worsening COVID-19 pandemic in 2021, wherein students, faculty, and staff of the university suffer from unprecedented socio-economic crisis. In order to ideally ensure a democratic electoral process, remote elections are therefore to be conducted only as necessitated by circumstances, and as decided upon by the student body through their respective student councils and governments.
The UP Diliman Community is also informed of the important dates to remember of the 2021 Remote Student Elections:
Interested students can file their certificates of candidacy from 04 May to 12 May, 5pm.
(UPDATE: The deadline for the filing of candidacy for the 2021 USC Elections is moved to 14 May, Friday, 12nn.)
Inquiries on this matter may be raised to the University Student Electoral Board, through the Office of Student Projects and Activities, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All the best, mga Iskolar ng Bayan!
