The UPAA Website, maintained gratis by the UnionBank IT Department by virtue of a MOA between the UPAA and UnionBank under its president and UPAA Director Victor B. Valdepeñas, used as benchmarks those of highly esteemed institutions such as Harvard University, et al. It is intended as the primary medium for interactive communication between the UPAA and UP alumni worldwide. They can learn about the latest news, events, and projects of the UPAA, as well as make payments and donations to the UPAA through the PayPal money transfer feature of the site.
In our rapidly advancing technological world, yesterday’s brilliant breakthroughs are today’s white elephants, so much so that the UPAA Website needs continuing upgrading and enhancing. With the help of Ms. Fe Ferriols and the Ink Elephant Design Studio team, who themselves are alumni of UP College of Fine Arts, in collaboration with UnionBank, UPAA is steadily improving the current website with the latest trends in web development, converting it to Responsive Web Design to improve readability and navigation on all internet devices. Ink Elephant Design Studio was also able to enhance the back-end of the website to make it easier for UPAA administrators to moderate and update.
