The momentous day has come, after hurdling in victory 4 or 5 years of their lives in the mettle of academic learning, when the graduands would turn into graduates!
They are bringing with them not only a prime academic preparation and a cutting-edge competence in their respective disciplines. More importantly, they are honed up or deeply ingrained with the most fitting professional and ethical values that are envisioned to set them apart from others in their fields and bring them to places where their hearts truly belong.

Exactly 71 years ago, after months of grisly battles in the scorching jungles of Bataan, about 70,000 outgunned Allied soldiers surrendered to the modern-equipped Japanese Imperial Army, leading to the infamous Death March. Tested for valiantly repelling foreign aggressors, Filipinos sacrificed precious lives to guard liberty and freedom in their lands.
Today, as the fangs of regional instability once again hang as a Damocle’s sword, we commemorate the valor and gallantry of our forebears, yet recognizing the deep pains and heavy price of war, its wicked atrocities against humanity and horrendous repercussions against social progress.

Renowned inspirational speaker and corporate trainer Francis Kong, in his latest Philippine Star Business Sunday column, lamented about an epidemic outbreak in our midst:
The emergence of workers who are impatient (jumping from one company to another); outspoken and articulate but low on substance; and mouthing cliches without understanding them.
Their work ethics suck and their work values suck even more. Push them a little and they whine & wimper. Stretch them a little and they moan & groan. Correct & reprimand them a little and they quit right there & then. Mentor them a little and they think they know more than their mentors.
Francis Kong suggests values training in the area of developing personal excellence and work values.
He asks "Where are the classic lectures on hard work, persistence, patience and sacrifice that are the true ingredients of success?"
Great thing our graduands have been deeply steeped in those golden values! Congrats, PLMayers! :)

Indeed, no one in his right mind would ever wish an excellent institution, whose social mandate is beyond reproach and remains most relevant even until half-a-century hence from its foundation, to close down. It never did... and until one Manileño is still willing to learn and improve his lot, PLM never will.

Tomorrow is Heroes' Day.
But who is and how do we define a hero?
He is someone not extraordinary at all nor with magical powers; Just an ordinary person like you and me who rose above his own imperfections, made hard decisions and exerted extraordinary efforts, or even placed his life at risk or in the line of fire for what others -- his family or the society at large -- rightfully deserve. Or simply a friend who rushes to your aid just when you direly need a helping hand.
Every PLMayer is a hero. The SCHOLAR who searches for wisdom to help his community. The TEACHER who unlocks the door to the universe of wisdom. The STAFF who aids the scholar and the teacher to achieve their utmost potential in making this world a better place to live in.
Together, they compose the community of heroes.
As a PLMayer, congratulate yourself. Feel in your heart that a HERO is inside you waiting to be tapped. Make good of it and greatness is now waiting for you in the future.
Happy Heroes' Day, then, PLMayers! Tomorrow is your day!

21 Aug 2012
PLM joins the nation in grieving for the tragic loss of and in saluting the noble advocacies of the late DILG Sec. Jesse Robredo, a Magsaysay awardee (in Government Service, 2000).
PLM was the host and venue of the historic first-ever interactive chat session with a Magsaysay laureate on 26 June 2003, with the PLM community as the first chat audience and Robredo as the first laureate. Launched in PLM, this RMAF's innovative program gave the public a chance to speak with Asia's living heroes online, which PLM continued with the likes of Mr. Tasneem Siddiqui of Pakistan (1999) and Fr. Eduardo Jorge Anzorena of Argentina (Japan-based, 1994) on 17 July 2003, also at the TOP Room.
Sec. Robredo's demise replicated that of Pres. Magsaysay's in 1957 through a plane crash at the prime of public service.
Undoubtedly, the world is richer and better because of the leadership they have shared and exuded which is worthy of emulation by everyone.

If all PLMayers will make good of his education for the benefit of everyone, no problem is too big to put into oblivion. :-)

CHRISTmas is the celebration of our faith, that in spite of the aridity of love to our Almighty Creator and to one another, a Gift of Love -- one that is pure and the only way to save us from eternal damnation -- was sent straight from heaven to rekindle our hearts back to the loving hands of our Divine Father. :)
Merry Christmas -- from the heart of Intramuros to the whole world!

CEP media release
Released: ‎20 December 2011
The essence of Christmas is the salvation of humanity. It's message is love through the Almighty's selfless, supreme sacrifice of His beloved Son.
PLM's nobility of purpose is exemplified by its mission to educate those who are "less in life" so that they can be "more in the future."
Much like the bright star that guided the wise men or "pantas" in their quest for the One, PLM's noble seal radiates an unmistakable aura among the community of schools -- way above the others -- guiding those who seek for scholarly wisdom. That's why PLM is otherwise known as "Pamantasan" -- where wise men are made and refined.
Among the top 5 universities in the country, it is the only one that is not hundreds of years old nor is supported by billions of endowment -- so as to be at par with the elite group of outstanding universities.
This Christmas, let us be reminded of how PLM has been the life-changing cause of transformation among the thousands of youth who did not have hope to lead, much less survive, in this world full of prejudice -- until PLM came to their lives -- to bring salvation to their future.

CEP media release

PLM's foremost advocacy is ending social maladies to make life worth living.
"Academics" aims to educate the citizenry (opening the mind).
"Research" aids the human advancement (opening the door to innovation).
"Community Extension" widens our horizons of humanity (opening the heart).
CET's 42nd foundation anniversary bolstered the PLM's tri-focal mandate.
On 19-20 Dec, teeming with social responsibility advocacy, a double community service marks its Christmas observance and bring light to the lives of our less-fortunate brothers & sisters* -- to give them hope and reasons to re-dedicate their lives to make this world a better place to live in. They suffered thru darkness, yet through our hearts, they may finally find that elusive light.
Christmas is an opportune time for sharing our love and care, supreme sacrifice of our own comfort for the well-being of others, and many other human virtues with divine roots.

It's a great Sunday in Manila! The joy of the Holidays is so ubiquitous.
Our brothers in Mindanao, though, are reeling from the horror of an unusual devastation in decades just a week before Christmas. In two adjacent localities alone, fatalities rose up to nearly 500. Most of Mindanao and all of Visayas are not yet accounted even. A bleak Christmas threatens their inner faith and fortitude to rise up to the challenges of grief and loss of reasons to live meaningfully.
Let’s pray for our brothers. Share our little blessings. Exhibit the virtue of the Season. Certainly, our efforts would go a long way!

Nation grieves senseless killings
Released: 23 August 2010
Within only 3 days, the nation is shocked by ruthless yet senseless murders: first, of a young scholar of PLM's sister-university (UMak) who was fatally tortured in a brutal, gangster-like hazing and was dumped by those who swore to serve as his refuge thru brotherhood; and secondly, of foreign tourists and a disgruntled yet be-medalled police officer after a botched hostage drama that is merely a stone's throw away from PLM.
In the aftermath of PLM's tragic loss of its medical scholar, PLM sympathizes with the loved ones of the victims of the savagery of these equally-dreadful tragedies, even as the absurdity of such dastardly acts deserves the strongest condemnations from the community of civilized societies -- that such a stark inhumanity is grossly despicable, at the least, for being a threat to peace & order and to the sanctity of precious human life. PLM prays for justice and healing.

Seminal Concept
PLM is primarily a service-oriented institution. As such, the University has taken a milestone direction towards providing relevant services supportive of the scholarship needs of our scholars and their instructors. Among these is the beefing up of the Internet Station at the University Library.

At present, the Internet Station caters to the Internet needs of the faculty and scholars for free. Additionally, there are few units for composing articles and other academic pursuits aimed at substantially reducing, if not totally eliminating, the costs incurred by our scholars in renting at commercial cafés outside the campus.

To further stretch the scholarly benefits an extra mile and complete the range of benefits for our city scholars, a printing service has been established as another way of sustaining academic excellence.

It is believed that this will prove to be beneficial to the scholars and other important internal stakeholders of the University.
