How We Started

At the start of SY 2014- 2015, the Office of the President and Chancellor of De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde initiated the creation of an office known as the Intellectual Property Management Center (IPMC), with the mandate to develop an institutional intellectual property policy and implementing rules and regulations to guide student, faculty and the different offices of the college dealing with IP-related concers. The Brother President appointed Atty. Ma. Janice Tejano, faculty of the Human Resource Management Program-School of Management and Information Technology (HRMP-SMIT) to take on the role of Director of the IPMC.

On May 26, 2015, De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde Intellectual Property Rights Policy and IRR (IPRP) wa approved by the Office of the Brother President and was formally launched to the Benilde community with the realease of the IPRP Handbook. The launch was attended by the school administrator and guests from the Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines.

Now under the Office of the Chancellor, the IPMC remains as the office in-charge of implementing the provisions of the IPRP and IRR. The IPMC continues to work with the Benilde community in managing the intellectual properties of the College and addressing IP-related concerns of students, faculty and offices.
