A blessing ceremony was presided by the University Chaplain, Rev. Fr. Rolando Canonce. Present in the ceremony are the University President, Dr. Alberto N. Naperi, the Vice Presidents, Directors of the OVPBEA, Deans, and faculty members of the different colleges.
All marketing initiatives for products created by the University and those resulting from partnerships with other stakeholders will be spearheaded by the Market Center.
