University of the Philippines Income

Rep. Co said she sees “the need to give UP more budget and to prod it more to source more income from other income streams aside from the national budget.”

“UP and Ateneo have widely different missions, purposes, and clientele. In many ways, it would be like comparing an apple to an orange. As a state university, UP must admit more students than Ateneo does, especially now given the free college education legal mandate. Most Ateneans pay full tuition and most come from upper income and rich households. UP’s program offerings are designed to meet national development objectives. Ateneo program offerings are designed to meet Jesuit missionary objectives,” Co expounded. (END)
