UP Parangal para sa Programang Pang-ekstensiyon (May 2016)
Project NOAH was given a Special Award during the Recognition Ceremony for Extension programs held at the Malcolm Auditorium, UP College of Law in 17 May 2016. This was given in acknowledgement of Project NOAH’s continuous contribution of knowledge through its research towards improving the Philippine Public’s safety against the hazards brought about by typhoons; namely Flooding, Landslides and Storm Surges.
Project NOAH was recognized for its important role in sharing knowledge, sowing a culture of safety and advancing research on natural disasters.
The award has two categories: extension programs for degree-granting units and extension programs for non-degree units.
UPD Chancellor Michael L. Tan said, “We are giving recognition of extension works or projects that look long-term and/or those programs helping people help themselves.”
The special award is meant to recognize the importance of extension programs in UPD and “is conferred to programs with significant contribution to the achievement of the vision/mission of the unit and the university.”
