At its 1309th meeting held on 22 July 2015, the UP Board of Regents approved the allocation of P100 Million per year for the period January 2016 - December 2018 for approximately 800 professorial chair awards and faculty grant awards to be distributed among academic units across all the Constituent Universities. Named One U.P. Professorial Chair (PC) Awards and Faculty Grant (FG) Awards, these aim to further provide recognition and incentives to faculty members who have demonstrated outstanding performance in two out of three work areas of the faculty: teaching, research or creative work, and public service.

Thus, there are five (5) award categories as follows:

  1. Outstanding Teaching & Research, or
  2. Outstanding Teaching & Creative Work, or
  3. Outstanding Teaching & Public Service, or
  4. Outstanding Research & Public Service, or
  5. Outstanding Creative Work & Public Service

Below are sample titles of the Award:

A. TERMS AND CONDITIONS

AWARD GUIDELINES

  1. Faculty members are invited to apply for the 2016-2018 One U.P. Professorial Chair Awards and Faculty Grant Awards (One U.P. PC & FG Awards) which are intended to further provide recognition and incentives to those who have demonstrated outstanding performance in two out of three work areas of the faculty: teaching, research or creative work, and public service.
  2. The criteria will be reviewed and updated continuously to require progressively higher standards of performance of the faculty for renewal after three years.
  3. Faculty members are asked to present their vision-mission-plan (V-M-P) for their academic unit, the university and the country, and to indicate targets for self-improvement in the three work areas in the next three years to attain the V-M-P. This is based on the principle that one's performance is, first and foremost, inner- or self-driven. The V-M-P will not be considered part of the criteria for the current award which is based on past accomplishments, but it will be considered for the renewal of the award after 3 years.

CRITERIA

  1. The basis of the One U.P. PC & FG Awards is outstanding performance in two out of the three work areas of the faculty: 1) teaching, 2) research or creative work, and 3) public service.
  2. The evaluation criteria and scoring rules are provided below. Points can be earned from a great variety of accomplishments.
  3. The criteria that contribute to new knowledge have no cap/limit on points (see further below).

APPLICATION AND SUBMISSION PROCESS

  1. After the call for applications, each academic unit (department, institute, center) led by its head will create a One U.P. PC & FG Awards Committee whose members will select among themselves the Committee chair. The Awards Committee will be responsible for auditing and verifying the data/information and corresponding points/scores provided by the faculty. The ranking of the faculty members within the academic unit will be generated by the online system based on their scores as audited by the Awards Committee.
  2. College or academic unit officials may organize one- or two-day assemblies or make other arrangements to guide the faculty to fill up the application forms efficiently and meet the deadline for submission of applications. IT specialists of the college or members of the e-UP Team, if requested, can provide assistance during these assemblies.
  3. Faculty will bring to the assembly all primary documents to support the points/scores they will assign to their accomplishments. Faculty should upload the scanned front pages (or electronic copy) of these documents or provide web links in their application.
  4. Faculty will submit the application online at https://adcp.up.edu.ph using their @up.edu.ph account as log-in. No other alternative forms of application will be accepted. Faculty with problems filling out the form may seek assistance from the eUP Team, the IT/Computer Center within the CU, or by sending an email to [email protected].
  5. The Vice Presidents, other System officials, Chancellors and UP Cebu Dean, and other CU officials likewise may submit their applications with accomplishments and corresponding points/scores for teaching, research or creative work and public service, which will be verified by their respective home academic unit's One U.P. PC & FG Awards Committees. The scores for UP administrative work will be verified by the President (for Vice Presidents, Secretary of the University, Chancellors, and UP Cebu Dean) or by the corresponding direct administration supervisors of the other System and CU officials.

GENERAL PRINCIPLE IN RANKING OF APPLICANTS AND GRANTING OF AWARDS ACROSS CUs

  1. Faculty members from each academic unit (department, institute, center) of each CU will be automatically ranked by the computerized system within the unit, based on the criteria and scoring rules of the One U.P. Award, as audited by the unit's Awards Committee. Faculty who attain the minimum point requirements will qualify for the One U.P. PC and FG Awards. The Committee will recommend the highest ranked full and associate professors for Professorial Chair Awards and the remainder of the qualified faculty for Faculty Grant Awards. The scores, rankings and recommended awards of the faculty will be transmitted by the committee chair and the unit head, to the Dean, the Chancellor and the System Committee.
