The University of the Philippines Kadugong Bol-anon (UPKB) is the first and only organization of UP students who are from the province of Bohol and/or those of Boholano lineage. UPKB is also one of the duly recognized, geographic-based, ethnicity-based, and non-profit student organizations in the University of the Philippines.
It was established in July 19, 1977 by now Bohol Governor Edgar M. Chatto. Since then, the organization has been at the forefront of developing a sense of service and responsibility among its members, and promoting the province of Bohol, its people, and its culture through various activities and collaborations with other student organizations within and outside the university.
The tambayan of UPKB was originally located at the Kamia Dining Hall. It was also in 1995 when the organization moved its home to the Yakal Dining Hall. This year, the tambayan is in front of Vinzons Hall.
UPKB has been consistent in producing topnotch graduates in their respective fields. And although these proud KB alumni are now successful professionals, they still live by the ideals of the university and the organization – to serve the people.
Today, the organization, on its 35th year of service and dedication still strives to uplift the flame and the pursue that goal in spite of the rapidly changing times and the trials thrown at us on a daily basis.
