"Commissioner Adamat’s long experience in government service and his strong ties with the IP (Indigenous Peoples) sector contribute to the Commission’s mandate to craft policies and recommend to Congress legislative measures that could help ensure that higher education is inclusive to all Filipino learners regardless of creed, color, or culture," said CHED Chairman Prospero de Vera III.
CHED said De Vera said expects Adamat to continue with his advocacies such as federalism, IP studies, peace and development, agriculture, maritime education, and good governance "as these could provide the Commission with significant insights" as CHED strives to fulfill its mandate. – Rappler.com
