UE Hosts ‘Beauty of Fujian’ Photo Exhibit

22195743_1590160261036254_7270000850970842042_n

The University of the East, in cooperation with the Philippine Consulate General (PCG) in Xiamen, presents “The Beauty of Fujian (through Filipino Eyes),” a photo exhibit showcasing firsthand impressions of different idyllic and panoramic locations and scenes in Fujian Province, China.

The 40 featured photos are by four members of Foto Grupo, a group of Filipino photo hobbyists based in Fujian: Dan Osillos, Cocoy DeClaro, Dixx Gatpo and Bong Antivola.

This Philippine-Fujian connection is symbolic, considering that countless Filipinos per se have ancestral roots in Fujian. For one thing, the ancestry of the national hero, Dr. Jose P. Rizal, can be traced to Fujian, which is now home to the largest Rizal Park in the world, a five-hectare expanse with its own Rizal monument towering at 18.61 meters high―the height a nod to Dr. Rizal’s birth year.

“The Beauty of Fujian” had premiered publicly at a shopping mall in Xiamen in March 2017, followed by its Philippine debut at the lobby of the Department of Foreign Affairs headquarters last May 30 to June 6. This stop at the University of the East, which runs from October 9 to 16, 2017, at the Dalupan Lobby in UE Manila, marks the first time ever for the exhibit to be staged in an academic institution in the Philippines or anywhere else.

This special photography exhibit forms part of the pioneering initiative of Philippine-Fujian Week of PCG Xiamen, Fujian Province, China, under the PCG Xiamen’s economic and cultural diplomacy program for 2017 and beyond. This is aimed at further enhancing friendship, understanding and cooperation between the Philippines and Fujian on one hand, and on the other between the Philippines and China.

Everyone in the UE community is invited to check out the exhibit within this Monday, October 9, 2017 (after the 10 a.m. opening ceremony), up to October 16, 2017. Thank you.

Attention, UE CALOOCAN Candidates for the 2017 Midyear Commencement Rites!

A group of BS Electronics Engineering students of the UE College of Engineering-Caloocan earned the First Runner-up slot in the PalaIECEPan 2017 Quiz Bowl!

A showdown of intellect organized by the Institute of Electronics Engineers of the Philippines (IECEP)-Quezon City Student Chapter, PalaIECEPan 2017 Quiz Bowl was held on September 2, 2017, at the Jose Rizal University (JRU) Library in Mandaluyong City.

UE CEng’g Caloocan BS ECE students Flynn Edmund Tolentino, Jem Kenneth Elopre, Aaron Joshua Sullera, John Carlo Manzano, Hansley Laurel and Dave Cordova, together with their coach Engr. Elmar Francisco, went head-to-head against students from 14 colleges and universities from the IECEP Quezon City Chapter, including Ateneo de Manila University, Technological Institute of the Philippines-QC, New Era University, UP Diliman and JRU.

They faced off on questions related to Sipnayan (Mathematics), Agham (Science), Dagitab (Electronics) and Komunikasyon (Communications Engineering).

By the end of the competition, the ECE Warriors emerged just 10 points shy of the score of the eventual champion, TIP QC. The UE team’s placement, however, qualified them for the national ECE quiz competition to be held this November, wherein the winners of PalaIECEPan from every IECEP chapter will compete.

Kudos, ECE Warriors, and good luck on the November competition!

Happy World Teachers’ Day!

World Teachers Day 2017Dear UE Warrior Professors and Warrior Teachers, former UE Professors and Teachers, and Professors and Teachers among UE Alumni: Happy World Teachers’ Day this Thursday, October 5, 2017!

Congratulations, young Warrior Fencers, and thank you for making your school and your country proud!

Longtime UE Dentistry Dean Passes Away

21686465_1576401352412145_1081089442829347624_n

Dr. Diampo Jahara Lim, DMD, Dip. OMS, a UE College of Dentistry graduate turned dean and a key figure in the dental health realm in the country, passed away on September 14, 2017. He was 82 years old.

In 1960, Dr. Lim earned his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree, magna cum laude, from the UE College of Dentistry. Twenty-six years later, he was appointed as the College’s Dean, a position he would hold from 1986 all the way to his retirement in April 2006―a 20-year stint that saw the College gain further reputation as one of the country’s best dental schools for producing board topnotchers and accomplished dental professionals.

Right after his college graduation, Dr. Lim taught at the UE College of Dentistry for six years, then was accepted in the Japan Monbusho scholarship program at Japan’s Osaka University Dental School and Hospital, as a researcher and junior resident, for over two years. Upon returning to the Philippines, he taught again in his Alma Mater and was given the position of Associate Professor. From then on, he was promoted to key positions in the UE College of Dentistry, including becoming the UE CDent Associate Dean, a post he held from 1968 all the way to 1986. During his teaching stint, he worked on the side at the V. Luna Dental Infirmary, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.

In 1968, he received a Diploma for Post Graduate Studies in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (OMS) from the Osaka University Dental School, Japan. Later on, in 1991, he was awarded certifications for completing trainings in Osseointegrated Dental Implants at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dentistry; Advanced Dental Implant Education and International Implant Advanced Course at the Loma Linda University School of Dentistry, in California, USA; and the Calcitek Prosthetics Course in Carlsbad, San Diego, California, USA.

Dr. Lim likewise assumed positions in different dental and non-dental associations, such as the Council of Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) Continuing Professional Education (CPE), the Asian Pacific Dental Federation (APDF), the Philippines-Japan Society, the Institute of the Japanese Language under the Chairmanship of Ambassador Jose Laurel III, and the Asian Council of Japan Alumni (ASCOJA).

Through the Philippine Dental Association (PDA) and local dental societies all over the country, Dr. Lim had been a guest lecturer and resource speaker several times in different scientific seminars and symposia on oral surgery, oral pathology and oral diagnosis since 1969 up to earlier this decade.

He had been around the world as an official delegate to Fédération Dentaire Internationale (FDI) or the World Dental Federation and Asia Pacific Dental Federation (APDF/APRO) Congresses, especially during the 1980s and 1990s.

Dr. Lim was an active Fellow of the Pierre Fauchard Academy (PFA) and International College of Dentists (ICD), Philippine Section; President of the Foundation for Outstanding Professional (FOP) of the Professional Regulation Commission; Regent of the Academy of Dentistry International (ADI), Philippine Section; Honorary President of the Macau Dental Association; and Chairman of the Committee on Constitution, Legislation and By-laws of the Philippine Dental Association.

Within 1968 to 1988, he wrote and published scientific papers in local and international journals, notably on “Early Diagnosis of Oral Cancer,” numerous articles on different oral tumors, “Clinical Study of Temporomandibular Joint Disturbances” and most recently, “Hepatitis B Virus Infection of Dentists in the Philippines.”

Dr. Lim was also able to share his time and expertise through community work, having been at the helm of a number of religious and civic organizations such as the Rotary Club of Sta. Mesa, Quezon City, the Sulu-Tawi-Tawi Young Professionals, and the Asian Pacific Dental Federation/Asia Pacific Regional Organisation (APDF/APRO), among others.

He was a recipient of several awards and recognitions. In 1958 to 1960, Dr. Lim received gold medals for three consecutive years for academic excellence from by the Commission on National Integration and the Office of the President of the Philippines.

Dr. Lim earned the Most Outstanding Alumnus Award from the University of the East in 1975; Outstanding Alumnus award from the Philippine Association of the Japanese Ministry of Education Scholars; Most Outstanding Professional in Dentistry (1992) from the PRC and the Philippine Association of Board of Examiners (PABE); and Most Outstanding Health Professional in Dentistry from the Philippine Federation of Professionals Association (PFPA). He was a nominee of the search for the Ten Outstanding Young Men (TOYM) for Medicine in 1974.

He was a member of the Consensus Panel for the creation of the Autonomous Region for Muslim Mindanao appointed by then President Corazon Aquino in 1987-88.

At UE, Dean Lim also served as Trustee of the University’s Foundation for Research and Advanced Studies, Inc. (UE-FRASI).

More recently, Dr. Lim was the commencement speaker of the joint UE Yearend Commencement Rites for graduating students of the UE Graduate School and Colleges of Law and Dentistry, held on April 19, 2013, at the UE Theater.

A native of Jolo, Sulu, Dr. Lim is survived by Alice S. Javier Lim and their children: Dr. Darwin Diampo (a faculty member of the UE College of Dentistry), Daniel Dennis (the College Secretary of the UE College of Fine Arts, Architecture and Design), David Dickson and Donald Dean. (The fourth son, Douglas Dwayne, had passed away in June 2009).

Dr. Lim’s remains lie in state at Matthew 102 Chapel of the St. Peter Memorial Chapels on Commonwealth Avenue, Quezon City. He will be laid to rest on September 23, 2017, after an 8:30 a.m. Mass, at the Eternal Garden Memorial Park in Caloocan City.

An exceptional achiever yet humble and low-key, Dr. Lim was a man of inspiration to many dentists and leaders. The UE community condoles with his entire family and expresses immense gratitude for all the work and service to the University and the country of the great Warrior that was Dean Diampo Jahara Lim.
