THE UST Publishing House is awaiting the appointment of a new director after its officer-in-charge, John Jack Wigley, declined reappointment to concentrate on his teaching.

Wigley’s term officially ended last May 31.

“I want to focus on teaching and to pursue my doctoral degree,” said Wigley, a professor of literature at the College of Rehabilitation Sciences.

The Office of the Secretary General has administrative supervision of the publishing house. Wigley, who was assistant to the director before he became OIC, said the “400 Books at 400!” project, which seeks to publish 400 books from 2001 to 2011 to mark the quadricentennial of UST, will continue under the secretary general.

Wigley said under his one-year watch, the publishing house published around 80 books, bringing the number of publications since the project was launched to more than 300. Cliff Harvey C. Venzon
