University of the East faculty members and students presented papers at the 2015 International Multidisciplinary Academic Conference in Bangkok, Thailand, organized by the Academic Organization for Advancement of Strategic and International Studies (Academic OASIS), and the International Academy for Advancement of Business Research with the special theme “Spirituality, Religion and Modern Society.”

The research conference was held at the Renaissance Bangkok Ratchaprasong Hotel from July 5 to 7, 2015. UE Professors Maria Jocelyn S. Mariano and Angelito C. Descalzo were part of the conference organizing committee and also served as session chairs, where there were participants and presenters from over 10 countries. Dr. Valentino G. Baac, Vice President for Academic Affairs of Emilio Aguinaldo College, delivered the keynote address on the conference’s special theme.

The following papers from UE were accepted and presented during the conference, namely:

“Equipping Future Globally Competitive Marketing Professionals: Strategies Employed in Marketing Education at the University of the East-Philippines” by UE College of Business Administration-Manila Prof. Cynthia A. Abella;

“Ethics on Tax Avoidance: Opinions of Tax Practitioners” by UE CBA Manila Accountancy students, presented by Ms. Katherine Jane V. Abando, Mr. Josiah D.P. Barrameda, Ms. Jeline Louise P. Santiago and Ms. Brenda D. Tomas; and

“Selected Variables Affecting Students’ Performance In Departmental Examinations” by UE CBA Manila Accountancy students, presented by Prof. Descalzo, Ms. Abando, and Mr. Barrameda.

The paper on “Ethics on Tax Avoidance: Opinions of Tax Practitioners” was awarded the Best Paper in the Education Category. The study serves as an instrument to have a clear understanding and awareness about the limitations or extent of ethicality regarding tax avoidance. This study is also hoped to call the attention of the law-governing body to the possible need to amend the laws in relation to tax avoidance. An e-mail-based survey was used to gather information needed for analysis according to the tax practitioners’ opinions on the ethicality of tax avoidance, and reasons for tax practice and opinions on the tax practice as a whole. Furthermore, comments and viewpoints of two top Bureau of Internal Revenue officials gathered through separate direct personal interviews were also considered as integral parts of the paper.

Moreover, this was the first ever international research conference participated in by UE Accountancy students. Such an opportunity for presenting papers abroad will surely boost the research interests and capabilities of UE Accountancy students along with our faculty members in line with the overall research program of the UE College of Business Administration-Manila.

Active UE Law Professor Passes Away at 42


The UE community and the UE College of Law mourn the passing of Atty. Skarlit C. Labastilla, a Professorial Lecturer of the College since June 2007 who had taught Political Law subjects. Atty. Labastilla passed away last Saturday, May 16, 2015, due to multiple organ failure following colon surgery. She was 42; she would have turned 43 this June 5.

A native of Bayugan, Agusan Del Sur, Atty. Labastilla was a Supreme Court lawyer, specifically Court Attorney VI of the Supreme Court Office of Associate Justice Antonio T. Carpio, from April 2003 up to the time of her passing. She had previously been Court Attorney under Associate Justice Vicente V. Mendoza (January 2000-April 2003), Supervising Legislative Staff Officer II of the House of Representatives Electoral Tribunal (August 1999 to January 2000) and Judicial Staff Officer of the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (May to August 1999). She was also the Corporate Secretary of RTM Family Foundation Inc., a non-stock foundation providing financial assistance to poor but deserving students.

Atty. Labastilla earned her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science (1993) and Bachelor of Laws degrees (1998) from the University of the Philippines. She passed the bar exam in 1999, ranking 21st out of 3,697 qualifiers. In 2009, she earned her Master of Laws degree from the Cardozo School of Law of the New York-based Yeshiva University, where she studied as a Dean’s Merit scholar.

The wake for Atty. Labastilla is ongoing at the Sanctuario de San Jose in Greenhills, San Juan. Members of the UE College of Law will hold a simple tribute to Atty. Labastilla at the wake on Tuesday, May 19, at 6 p.m. The wake at Sanctuario is only up to Wednesday, May 20, after which Atty. Labastilla’s remains will be brought to Bohol.

Our condolences and sympathies to Atty. Labastilla’s family. Thank you, Ma’am, for your service to the country and to UE, particularly in educating hundreds of grateful UE Law students, alumni and graduates.

Ambassador Domingo Lucenario Jr., UE Alumnus

2Domingo Lucenario Jr

The UE community deeply mourns the loss and condoles with the family of Hon. Domingo D. Lucenario Jr., the Philippine Ambassador to the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, who perished in a helicopter crash on May 8, 2015. Amb. Lucenario was 54 years old.

Amb. Lucenario is a UE graduate, having earned his high school degree from the UE Elementary and Secondary Laboratory Schools (ESLS) in 1977. He “returned home” last April 3, 2013, as the Commencement Speaker of the UE ESLS Commencement Rite held that afternoon at the UE Theater.

The Ambassador was one of the envoy-passengers of a helicopter that crashed into a school in Pakistan yesterday, May 8, as this Agence France-Press/Rappler report states:…/92581-ph-norway-envoys-chopper-cra…

Amb. Lucenario was a multiawarded career diplomat, as the Philippine Daily Inquirer reports:…/dfa-mourns-death-of-mult…

Amb. Lucenario is survived by his wife, Atty. Nida Arada-Lucenario (herself a UE BS ’80 graduate and a UE College of Business Administration-Manila professor), their three children—Atty Marien, Dondon, and Nikki—and other immediate relatives.

Rest in peace, Ambassador Lucenario, and thank you for your service to the nation and to the world. UE is proud to call you its alumnus.
