2020

The Executive Board of the Southeast Asian University Consortium for Graduate Education in Agriculture and Natural Resources (UC) held its 24th meeting on 13-14 September 2011 at the Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM) in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. 

The meeting was attended by 20 delegates representing 8 out of ten member universities of the UC, namely: UGM, Institut Pertanian Bogor (IPB) in Indonesia, Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB), Kasetsart University (KU) in Thailand, University of Queensland (UQ) in Australia, Tokyo University of Agriculture (TUA) in Japan, and the Southeast Asian Regional Center for Graduate Study and Research in Agriculture (SEARCA) based in Los Baños, Laguna, Philippines. Dr. Gil C. Saguiguit, Jr., Director, and Dr. Editha C. Cedicol, Graduate Scholarship Department Manager, represented SEARCA as Associate Member and Secretariat in the meeting. 

The meeting reviewed UC's accomplishments in 2010 and discussed the network's directions and programs in the coming years. A working group was formed to recommend strategies, new programs and activities that will further strengthen the collaborative undertakings of its member universities in agriculture and related disciplines, as well as highlight the UC's relevance in the region. A number of UC members submitted proposals of activities for consideration in the Board meeting. The working group composed of representatives from UPLB, IPB, KU, TUA and SEARCA was also tasked to evaluate the proposals.

The UPM will host the 25th UC Executive Board Meeting tentatively set in November 2012.

The UC was established in September 1989 by SEARCA as a response to the growing demand for graduate education across agricultural disciplines and related field. At present, the UC has five regular program components namely: student exchange, faculty exchange, research fellowship, professorial chair, and thesis grants.
