The UPLB LSS is a program being implemented by the UPLB-ILC to honor distinguished retired faculty members and to record for posterity their collective academic experience as a valuable fount of scholarly knowledge and wisdom that could enrich learning resources and enhance the sense of intellectual heritage in the University. It is also envisioned as part of a presentation of the historical evolution of an academic field or discipline in the country.

The video lecture will showcase the scholarly contributions of the Legacy Lecturer to the field/discipline, underlining their roles in national development. The videotape of the lecture is expected to subsequently serve as introductory lecture to relevant general education/foundation courses. (Beverly R. Pabro)
