Tenure for U.P. Sociology Professor Sarah Raymundo

In Issues| Isyu on December 23, 2008 at 2:52 pm

SARAH RAYMUNDO is an Assistant Professor from the University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman’s Department of Sociology, College of Social Sciences and Philosophy. She’s been teaching in UP for almost ten years. She has met, and even exceeded, the minimum requirements for tenure. Why then, after almost a year since she applied for tenure, is Prof. Raymundo being denied permanent status in the university?

Given her outstanding academic and extension work, we are led to believe that her department’s decision is a reaction to her engagements as the General Secretary of the Congress of Teachers / Educators for Nationalism and Democracy (CONTEND-UP), as an active member of the All UP Academic Employees Union (AUPAEU) and National Treasurer of the Alliance of Concerned Teachers (ACT), and as a researcher for the militant human rights organization KARAPATAN.

We are also called to challenge the lack of transparency in the tenure process.sarah01
