Greetings from the Local Host:
Greetings APCSSM, ICEIT, and ICSPE 2017 Conferees,
Kumusta at Maligayang! Or, Hello and Welcome to Cebu, the Philippines – historic and captivating “Queen City of the South.” Whether an academic, faculty, doctoral candidate, graduate fellow or professional researcher….we know how hard you toil during the arduous university work year. Congratulations for making a wise choice by joining us this week among some of the sharpest and accomplished scholars anywhere. Cebu is not only an idyllic, world class recreation spot. The archipelago rightfully claims to be home of some of the globe’s most beautiful beaches and tropical settings. Traditionally January is the coolest and driest in the Philippine weather cycle. This should surely make your visit among the cognoscenti here comfortable, pleasant and most memorable.
Tellingly, Metro Cebu is the locus in quo of many of the most well-known and representative flagship colleges and universities in the Central Visayan region. The University of San Carlos traces its founding to 1595 at the Collegio de San IIdefonso by Spanish Roman Catholic Jesuit priests. Today it’s School of Law and Governance is nationally ranked and internationally recognized. Cebu Doctor’s University, built from the ground up in 1975, is lauded as a prime incubator of medical doctors of excellence and clinical nurses of distinction. Physical therapy graduates of Cebu’s Southwestern University School of Health and Allied Health Services ply their skills in medical rehabilitation settings worldwide; the University of the Southern Philippines Foundation offers superior clinical social work master’s degrees; its graduates go forward courageously to battle grinding community and human poverty. Unsurprisingly, University of Cebu Maritime College graduates make a legendary contribution to the world’s seafaring and ocean shipping transport trades.
I salute our intrepid and capable Conference organizers – the Higher Education Forum of Taipei, Taiwan-the Republic of China. Once again “HEF” has crafted a creative, challenging and enriching series of presentations examining an eclectic and intriguing array of scientific, empirical and evidence-based research interests. At these fact-filled sessions you’ll be witnessing cutting-edge research and methodological inquiry and approaches in action. They cover an array of multi-and-inter-disciplinary subject areas: the social sciences, business management and marketing, engineering, information technology, education and humanities, psychology and applied clinical science. We strongly urge you to attend as many lectures as practicable.
All is accomplished in an atmosphere promoting enriching values of global resonance, human accommodation, awareness, civility and friendship. Truthfully, I have been attending and participating in HEF conferences …. In Singapore, Seoul, Taipei and twice in the Philippines since 2013. There is one attribute of participants and attendees I have always found to be in great abundance. Whether young or senior, regardless of country of origin (and there are always so many represented at HEF gatherings!) it is the consistency of dedication, energy, interest, intensity, resourcefulness and sincerity that is so impressive. Our hope for you is to depart the Philippines later this week intellectually richer, profoundly informed and hopefully more operationally capable and prepared to accomplish your noble avocation as an academic professional. Enjoy!
