He previously served as president of De La Salle University-Araneta (2002 to 2002), head of the UP Law Center (2002 to 2006), and associate commissioner of the Securities and Exchange Commission (1996 to 2000).He was the Dean of the UP College of Law prior to his election as UP President.

Rodriguez, (Fellowship Night); Ruby Agnir (Gala Night); Dr. Francis Sy (Awards); Joe Santos (Logistics and Communications); Federico I.
