Following the suspension of classes due to Karding, UP Baguio receives an announcement from Chancellor Abansi:
Face-to-face and asynchronous classes will resume starting tomorrow but Synchronous classes are suspended from 27-28 September 2022 due to post-typhoon assessment. This assessment will consider the effects of flooding, power interruption, intermittent net connectivity, among others.
This announcement comes with an appeal to all UP Baguio faculty members. They are to consider individual circumstances of their students relative to academic requirements with deadlines this week.
Thank you very much.
