      The Guam Board of Accountancy presented a $1 million check to the University of Guam Endowment Foundation at the UOG School of Business and Public Administration on December 2, 2014.
       
      The purpose of these funds is to prepare an endowed chair for accounting, pursuant to Bill 303-02, which will create and implement the Herminia Dierking and John Phillips Visiting Professor and Lecturer Program.
       
      John Onedera, Chairman of the Guam Board of Accountancy, believes that “accountants and CPAs play a crucial role in all the success of companies and organizations, and a lot of these CPAs and accountants come from the University of Guam.”
       
      Onedera further explains that “it’s in our best interest to provide and improve the accounting program at the University of Guam.”
       
      According to Dr. Annette Taijeron Santos, Interim Dean for the School of Business and Public Administration, "The School of Business and Public Administration is pleased with the Guam Board of Accountancy's designation of one million dollars to establish the Senator Herminia Dierking and John Phillips Visiting Accounting Professor and Lecturer Program. Having a program like this benefits the University of Guam in many ways. This program provides us with an opportunity to bring in accounting experts, practitioners and academicians from diverse content backgrounds who can speak to the integration of theory and practice.”
       
      The late Speaker Ben Pangelinan’s committee is responsible for crafting the legislation to have $1 million transferred over from the Guam Board of Accountancy to the University of Guam Endowment Foundation in support of higher education.
       
      Dr. Santos explains that “the program provides collaborative research and potential grant opportunities between core faculty and visiting professors. Programs like this help to build an improved research-teaching nexus as well as improve students' knowledge of contemporary accounting practices and possibly career prospects."

    • The University of Guam School of Business and Public Administration (SBPA) in partnership with the University of Guam Endowment Foundation (UOGEF) hosted the 2014 Gubernatorial Great Debate on Thursday, October 30, 2014 at the University of Guam Calvo Field House. >Read More
      The University of Guam School of Business and Public Administration (SBPA) in partnership with the University of Guam Endowment Foundation (UOGEF) hosted the 2014 Gubernatorial Great Debate on Thursday, October 30, 2014 at the University of Guam Calvo Field House.
      For the second time, the UOG Endowment Foundation worked with students from the UOG Master of Public Administration program to coordinate the Great Debate in an effort to engage the voting public. This student-driven event allowed each gubernatorial team to clearly explain to voters their vision and plan for Guam’s future regarding economy, health care, education, public safety, and infrastructure.
       
      The Great Debate featured candidates for Governor and Lieutenant Governor, Eddie Baza Calvo and Raymond “Ray” Tenorio (Republican) and Carl T.C. Gutierrez and Gary Wayne Francis Gumataotao (Democrat). Dr. Annette Taijeron Santos, Interim Dean SBPA, served as moderator in front of a live audience which included community members, local leaders, and University of Guam students.

      According to Dr. Santos, “We hope that through The Great Debate event, we will enable voters to be more informed about the issues that impact their lives.  We want to help voters to make educated decisions, and this forum will provide a deeper view of the candidates and their positions.”
      The Great Debate serves as an active learning lab for our graduate and undergraduate Business and Public Administration students, who are responsible for coordinating the event from start to finish. Mark Mendiola, Executive Director for UOGEF, believes that among the students in attendance at the event, “there may have been future leaders of our island who might find inspiration from tonight’s debate.”
       
      The UOG Endowment Foundation thanks everyone for supporting our UOG students, as they have worked hard during this event to uphold the mission of the University of Guam: Ina, Diskubre, Setbe – To Enlighten, to Discover, to Serve.
       
    • The University of Guam community celebrated an historic event as the iconic UOG Field House was renamed the University of Guam Calvo Field House. >Read More
      The University of Guam community celebrated an historic event as the iconic UOG Field House was renamed the University of Guam Calvo Field House.

      Through a committed donation of $3 million, the Calvo family supports the University's 60th Anniversary Capital Campaign and UOG's vision for a 21st Century campus.  Dr. Robert A. Underwood, UOG President; the UOG Board of Regents; the UOG Endowment Foundation Board of Directors; Industry Leaders; members from the business community; and the UOG community were present at the ceremony as the Field House’s new name was revealed.

      Jerry Calvo, a longtime supporter of the University and member of its Endowment Committee, said “The University of Guam is such an important part of our past, present, and future, not only in Guam but throughout Micronesia. We feel blessed and privileged to be able to help the University with its fund-raising efforts and capital improvement campaign.”  Calvo further stated, “We are humbled and thankful that the University has decided to honor the memories of my father E.T. Calvo and my brother Eddie Calvo today.  Dad and Eddie exemplified the principles of hard work and giving back to the community and I am sure they are very proud and happy today as is our entire family.”

      The patriarch of the Calvo family, Eduardo Torres “Jake” Calvo, founded a number of extremely successful businesses that still prosper today. The Calvo family continues to help our island flourish through their contributions to the business, civics, and political sectors on Guam. Now, higher education was added to that list as this donation acknowledges the Calvo family as a “21st-Century Visionary” in the Triton Developers program – a fundraising strategy designed to attract different levels of support spread over a certain period of time.

      Triton Developers are instrumental in building a 21st Century university because of the high levels of sponsorship through Naming Opportunities which provide recognition across UOG’s campus. The Calvo family’s generosity and support help the University to ensure another sixty years of growth and achievement.
       
      Jesse Leon Guerrero, Chairman of the UOG Endowment Foundation Board of Directors, said “We are grateful for the generosity and commitment from the Calvo family. This gift highlights their pledge to the University of Guam community and the people of Guam. Their donation will go towards fulfilling the mission and vision of the University of Guam by providing a 21st Century campus for many generations to come.”

      According to Dr. Underwood, “UOG is grateful to the Calvo family for their commitment. They are role models for community engagement and support for higher education.”
