After the symbolic entrance of colors and singing of the national anthem, led by UPD ROTC Rayadillo, Chancellor Edgardo Carlo L. Vistan II, LLM shed light on the profound role and journey of UP Diliman in the realm of Volunteerism.

As the audience absorbed the Chancellor’s words, the spotlight shifted to the key speakers who further illuminated the discussion.
