The UP Diliman Gender Office (UP DGO)
The UP Diliman Gender Office (UP DGO) is an office that facilitates all gender issues and concerns, and gender mainstreaming in the Campus. It started in 199 as an ad hoc Diliman Gender Committee under the University under the University of the Philippines Center for Women Studies (UCWS). It was created to respond to the gender-related needs of UP Diliman with the vision of creating a Gender Office in every UP Campus. It was launched in 2001 and became a separate unit in 2003 under the Office of the Chancellor. It has been tasked to conduct training, research, counseling, and advocacy works.
Mission, Vision, and Objectives
The UP DGO aims for gender justice and works towards the realization of a Campus free of gender discrimination and gender oppression, safe from all forms of gender abuse and violence like sexual harassment, rape, gay and lesbian bashing, among others.
Our office is mandated to mainstream gender awareness and sensitivity in curriculum building, teaching, research information dissemination, extension and administration. It is envisioned to promote strategies in advancing women and gender rights as human rights and campaigns for the elimination of gender and sexual discrimination.
