March 10, 2016, 10:24p.m. – THE FIRST student organization at the UST Graduate School was inaugurated in ceremonies last Feb. 27 at the Thomas Aquinas Research Complex, with officers vowing to promote a research and innovation.

The Thomasian Society of Development Professionals describes itself as an organization promoting national and international development through research and innovation. It was recognized by the Office for Student Affairs last January, three years after its establishment in 2013. 

The new organization is led by Fr. Earl Alan Cura, CICM as president, with Graduate School Regent Rev. Fr. Jose Antonio Aureada, O.P. and Manuel Morga as advisers. 

Morga, the program lead of the UST Graduate School Economics and Development Studies cluster, said membership to the TSDP is not limited to the development studies cluster, but also covers Graduate School students, members of the academe and Thomasian alumni. 

Other officers are Alain Jomarie Santos, vice president; Pamela Acevedo-Go, secretary; Gil Orcena, treasurer; Raul Ablay, auditor; and John Christian Valeroso, public relations officer. 

There are now more 200 student organizations in the University. Roy Abrahmn D.R. Narra
