Deceased Prof. Chit Simbulan is supposed to handle four classes this semester

Yesterday was the second day of enrollment for 1st semester, AY 2011-2012 in UP Diliman. This is already my second enrollment as a Master of Arts in History student.

A brief look at the list of offered classes for the coming semester revealed that deceased journalism professor Lourdes “Chit” Estella-Simbulan is supposed to handle four classes, all of those are now marked as “dissolved.” See the following screenshots:

She is also listed as a thesis adviser to a pair of journalism seniors writing about the ethics-related problems during the August 23 Manila hostage fiasco.  Mam Chit is a full-time professor at the College of Mass Communication.

She is on her way to obtaining tenure after earning a master’s degree in public management from the UP Open University last April month. I can’t help but feel sorry for the scores of students who would have learned a lot under Mam Chit’s mentorship.
