Professorial Lectures

In early 2000, the Metrobank Foundation established Professorial Chairs in the areas of law (Philippine Judicial Academy), medicine (University of Santo Tomas and University of the Philippines-Manila), and public service and governance (Ateneo de Manila University), guided by the belief on the importance of continuing research to further strengthen the key professions. These lectures, when tackled and shared by chosen distinguished chair holders, are also aimed at educating the citizenry, especially on public-interest issues. Metrobank Group chairman Dr. George S.K. Ty advocates that the Foundation plays an active role in supporting initiatives that will strengthen the pillars of our government.
