Conferences, seminars and worWops are usually of short duration,
but, especially when they take place abroad and involve the
presentation of papers, they can be of immense benefit to both the
facdty member and to the Universify. They can also serve as an
incentive for joining and staying within the ranks of the faculty,
therefore, provision is made for them.

Faculty administrators are given, in addition to their salary,
entidements such as honorarium, administrative load credit,
representation, and transportation allowkces. These, however, have
been found to be inadequate considering the demands of administrative
positions. Furthermore, during the period of appointment, faculty
administrators are hardly abIe to pursue research activities. Since the
present promotion system assigns greater weight to scholarly activities
like teaching, research and publications, faculty administrators face the
prospect of lagging behind their co11eagues.
Recognizing the invaluable role of faculty administrators in the
attainment of the University's mission and realizing the need to entice
more qualified members of the faculty to accept administrative
assignment, the incentives shown on the following tabIe are granted.
In addition, a "Period for Re-energizing" i s granted to administrators
to enable them to take time off horn their routine functions and
responsibilities during the summer months, This period, which serves
to save administrator from burning out, may be done on a shifting
arrangement as decided by each unit. Entitled to this are the following:

The National Service 'Training Program Act of 2001 @.A:
9163) was enacted in response to public clamor for reforms in the
Reserved Officers Training Corps (ROTC) Program. This Act
aarms that the prime duty of the government shall be to serve
and protect its citizens. In turn,-it shall be the responsibility of all
its citizens to defend the security of the State; thus, the
government may require each citizen to render personal, military
or civil service. In the pursuit of these goals, the youth shall be
motivated, trained, organized, md mobilized in military training,
literacy, civic welfare, and other similar endeavors in service to
the nation.
The NSTP is a program aimed at enhancing civic
consciousness and defense preparedness in the youth by
developing the ethics of service and patriotism while undergoing
training in any of its program components. Its various
components are specially designed to enhance the youth's active
contribution to the general welfare of the nation.
All male and female students enrolled in any baccalaureate or
in at least two (2)-year technicaVvocationa1 or associate courses
are r e q~r e d to complete the equivalent of two (2) semesters of

any one of the NSTP components listed below as a requisite for

Under the NSTP law, state universities are required to offer
ROTC and at least one other NSTP component. Furthermore, for
NSTP courses, schooIs may collect not more than 50% of the
current basic Euition.
While the NSTP law requires the courses as a requisite for
graduation, it does not make reference as to when students should
enrol in these courses. Thus, these can be taken anytime before a
student graduates.
Students who finished all their academic requirements on or
before the second semester of AY 2001-2002 but who were not
graduated because they lacked the required ROTC subjects
maybe graduated as of znd semester 2001 -2002, after application
