UP President Emerlinda R. Roman

The Board of Regents, officials, faculty, students, and administrative staff of the University of the Philippines, the National University, send their deepest sympathies to the family of President Corazon C. Aquino. She will always be remembered by a grateful people as a symbol of strength and courage, having stood up to the forces of tyranny, restored democracy, and served the nation honestly, faithfully and well. Other public servants, as well as ordinary Filipinos, would do well to follow her example of simplicity, sincerity, humility, and steadfast commitment. In these trying times, she will be most sorely missed as a unifying force and the nation’s moral compass till the very end.
