Guam – The University of Guam is touting the efforts and achievements of Jayne Flores in the community as she was presented today with the coveted Palulap award./

 

This is only the third time the University has given this award. During a ceremony today, the UOG Senate Faculty and UOG President Dr. Robert Underwood spoke about the significance of the award.

It’s the highest honor that can be bestowed by the faculty senate to an individual or an organization.

The Palulap award is given to recognize the extraordinary contributions to protect and promote the fundamental principles of academic freedom, institutional integrity, institutional and individual autonomy and shared academic governance.

Senate President Kate Moots spoke about Flores’ achievements and why she was chosen to receive this year’s award.

“Today we honor a person whose leadership and integrity ensured the survival of the fledgling regent nominating council, its autonomy from political powers that resisted challenge and attempted to subvert the authority and mandate of the regent nominating council; and a person whose actions were ultimately pivotal to the full WASC accreditation of this university,” Moots stated.

Jayne Flores is the Assistant Director for Communications and Promotions at the Guam Community College.
