About UsMandateHistoryThe VCCAS


Serbisyong de-kalidad ay may integridad para sa komunidad.

The OVCCA assists the Office of the Chancellor in encouraging unity and harmony between the University and the members of the UP Diliman community. It also ensures that together with its units they are able to carry out its mandate while upholding its vision.

The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Community Affairs is tasked with ensuring a safe, clean, orderly, and peaceful environment for the UP Diliman community. Its concerns include the promotion and provision of primary health care services, upkeep of campus facilities and grounds, management of employee housing, campus transportation and traffic management, conduct of campus-wide sports fest and special events, and solid waste management, among others.

To fulfill its mandate, the OVCCA supervises several offices that provide direct services to the UP community such as the Campus Maintenance Office, Diliman Environmental Management Office, Housing Office, Office of Community Relations, Public Safety and Security Office, Transport Management Office and the U.P. Health Service.

The Vice Chancellor for Community Affairs also chairs committees that serve as advisory and consultative bodies to the Chancellor for matters pertaining to staff housing, transportation, environmental and waste management, safety and security, and health and wellness.

To facilitate the successful and satisfactory delivery of services to UP constituents and other partners, response mechanisms have been put in place. Its multi-dimensional role requires the OVCCA to be involved in various undertakings inside and outside the campus.

In its 954th Board of Regents (BOR) meeting held on 22 October 1982, the BOR initially approved the creation of the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student and Community Affairs.

However, at its 956th BOR meeting held on 17 December 1982, the Board approved the University’s Management Review Committee’s recommendation for the “creation of the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs and the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Community Affairs[(OVCCA)] out of the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student and Community Affairs.”

The following year, on 23 March 1983, then University President Edgardo J. Angara issued Executive Order No. 5: On the Reorganization of the Administration of the University of the Philippines Diliman which places the following offices under the OVCCA:

  1. Office of Community Relations
  2. Campus Planning, Development and Maintenance Office
  3. University Police Force
  4. Staff Housing Office; and
  5. Business Regulations Office.

Over the years, these offices have been renamed, some have been updated, some added while some were transferred. Nevertheless, the OVCCA remains to serve the UP Diliman community by providing quality service with integrity.

Currently, the following offices are under the OVCCA:

  1. Campus Maintenance Office (CMO)
  2. Diliman Environmental Management Office (DEMO)
  3. Housing Office (HO)
  4. Office of Community Relations (OCR)
  5. Public Safety and Security Office (PSSO)
  6. Transport Management Office (TMO)
