Members of the PLM Executive Committee led by President Emmanuel Leyco gathered for their second face-to-face discussion in two years since the national government declared community transmission of COVID-19 in the country. Last week, the members of the Expanded Executive Committee composed of the PLM vice presidents and assistant vice presidents held its first face-to-face meeting in two years.

The administration of the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila (PLM) has transitioned to the “new normal” and is now charting the gradual return to face-to-face sessions with its first in-person executive meeting on Monday, March 14.
Yesterday, PLM university vice presidents and unit heads gathered in one location while maintaining social distancing to discuss PLM’s most pressing affairs affecting members of the community.
On the same day, PLM held a fully face-to-face flag raising ceremony at the Tanghalang Bayan grounds.
“The PLM Executive Committee is leading the way towards our new normal. With the decline in COVID-19 infections, we will pursue a cautious but optimistic path to bring back more students to the classrooms,” President Leyco said. “Two years of interrupted learning has been too long. It’s time to get back on track. There is no substitute for a learning experience that involved the dynamic exchange with the faculty and fellow classmates.”
“PLM will strive to do its best to ensure a safe learning space at PLM despite the COVID-19 pandemic,” Leyco added.
PLM has prioritized graduating students and courses requiring practical or laboratory work for onsite learning. Further details will be coursed through respective colleges.
Students in the College of Medicine, the College of Nursing and the College of Physical Therapy have earlier attended their limited face-to-face class sessions last December and this January.
