RE:		CHANGE OF OFFICE NAME TO
		OFFICE OF UNIVERSITY DEVELOPMENT & ALUMNI RELATIONS
		AND
		CHANGES IN ALUMNI E-MAIL BROADCAST

 
In the 5 February 2005 meeting of the University’s Board of Trustees, 
the change of name of the office from the Office of Planning and 
Development & Alumni Affairs to the Office of University Development & 
Alumni Relations (OUD&AR) was approved. The removing of the term 
planning from the name of the office better reflects the actual 
situation where the planning function is really initiated and 
coordinated by the Office of the President in cooperation with the 
different units of the University. The shift from alumni affairs to 
alumni relations also more accurately reflects the desire and hope of 
the University to nurture better and more meaningful relations with its 
alumni, whom the University considers as one of its important members.

   
I also wish to announce that starting 15 February 2005 the following 
changes in the alumni e-mail broadcast will be in effect:

1. The e-mail broadcast will be in newsletter form, but will contain 
only summaries, URLs, and special memos from the University 
administration. Details of articles, announcements/notices, etc. will 
be posted in the appropriate section of the Ateneo de Manila website.

2. The e-mail broadcast will be done only once a week, every Saturday. 
In case a Saturday is a University holiday, the broadcast will be made 
the working day immediately prior to the holiday. The same policy 
applies to the deadline to request inclusion of materials in a 
broadcast.

3. All requests for materials that people wish to be included in the 
broadcast should be submitted by Thursday noon to Ms. Arlyn Catubig 
(acatubig at ateneo.edu). Requests will be reviewed by an editorial board 
(cf. #5 below).

4. Only emergency announcements are to be made through the email 
broadcast outside the designated day. Emergency announcements are 
requests for prayers and/or help for the sick and information about 
deceased alumni or their immediate family members. Only extra-ordinary 
events, such as calamities or the like, will be considered as 
emergencies outside of deaths and illnesses.

5. There will be an editorial board composed of Ms. Hilda K. Abola, 
Coordinator for Production, Ms. Sonia R. Araneta, Coordinator for 
Communications, Mr. Romeo A. Dalandan, Jr., Director for Alumni 
Relations, Mr. Miguel Jose C. Valencia, President of the Ateneo de 
Manila Alumni Association, and myself. The editorial board reserves the 
right not to broadcast some materials.

6. The alumni broadcast will also be sent to students, parents, 
faculty, and staff of the University who wish to be included in the 
list for the alumni email broadcast. Non-alumni who wish to be included 
in the broadcast list should send their full name and email address to 
Mr. Efren Debulgado (edebulgado at ateneo.edu).

7. This new system will be evaluated after six months.
 

Thank you for your attention.

Sincerely in our Lord,
