Our Commitment to Our Students
A Statement by Ateneo De Naga University, Universidad de Sta. Isabel, and University of Nueva Caceres
As Higher Education Institutions, we reaffirm our commitment to educate our youth, the future generations of Filipinos who will shape our country.
We will ensure that our youth formation and teachings will be informed by a fact-based review and analysis of the Martial Law years, the 1986 People Power Revolution and subsequent efforts to penalize the wrongdoers and to indemnify the victims of Martial Law. To forget, deny, or gloss over the excesses of the Martial Law era is to discount the huge negative impact of the mistakes of the past on our country.
We will strive to mold you, our students, into formed, socially conscious, productive and respectful members of society. We will encourage every member of our communities to embrace their power as nation-builders by shining a light on our shared history and the uncompromising pursuit of truth.
We will continue to strive to instill and inspire in you, our students, the values and behavior that will make you responsible and concerned citizens of our country. We will encourage you to always demonstrate compassion for your fellow citizens, including but not limited to the victims of Martial Law and human rights abuses, many of whom still await justice.
We will foster meaningful discussions through various channels to engage you to come up with constructive, proactive and synergistic ways to making our society better. We may only have a limited time to nurture you under our wings, but we commit to instill the values that will make you empowered and thinking citizens.
We pray for courage and fortitude as we deal with the challenges of these times, and enjoin all to work towards fair and peaceful resolutions to the current issues facing our country. We hope for innovative and collaborative solutions that will allow us as free citizens of a democracy to face the truths of our past as we find our way towards a bright, compassionate future.
