UP Diliman's Extension Programs

Concern for and service to the Filipino community is at the core of UPD's extension agenda. This concern is mainly translated in the various programs and activities of UPD units geared towards improving and enhancing the quality of education in other areas through teacher training/development, and curriculum and learning materials development. Most of the UPD units have been offering training programs, short-term non-degree courses, and workshops that aim to upgrade teaching effectiveness and relevance in their various areas of study and specialization.

A link to the extension offerings by various UPD units are listed at the index as given on the left column of this page.
