Raising the gender awareness of the different campuses of the University of the Philippines (UP) System toward a more humane University is the basic mandate of the UP Center for Women’s and Gender Studies (UPCWGS). Among its many strategies to achieve this end is the mainstreaming of gender in the various curricula of the University, including the General Education (GE) Curriculum.
Since the year 2000, the Center has conducted seminar-workshops to strengthen the gender component of the UP curricula as well as mainstream gender in the GE programs of the various academic units. Seminars on gender issues, feminist theories, and gender-sensitive pedagogy have also been carried out toward faculty development.
This program is carried out through the research, publication, and training programs.
