Meanwhile, the UP Board of Regents will discuss the matter in its meeting this month.
UP vice president for public affairs Prospero de Vera earlier said all of UP’s constituent universities, except Diliman, had expressed support for a revised academic calendar.
The DLSU administration released a copy of a memorandum last Dec. 2 regarding the proposal to shift its academic calendar starting 2015.
It proposed the start of the university’s first trimester on the first week of September.
The Guidon, ADMU’s official student newspaper, also reported on the university’s plan to move school opening to August starting 2015.
The Varsitarian, UST’s official school organ, likewise reported last Dec. 7 the university’s plan to synchronize its academic calendar with those followed in most countries.
