DLSU Professors should embody Lasallian Values

This petition had 2,229 supporters

It is ironic that a Christian Catholic Institution such as the De La Salle University-Manila entrusts its students to professors like Antonio Contreras. Mr. Contreras, is a professor at DLSU which is known for its core values of Faith, Service, and Community. DLSU is committed to nurturing a community of distinguished and morally upright scholars that harmonizes faith and life with contemporary knowledge in order to generate and propagate new knowledge for human development and social transformation. DLSU is committed to being a resource for Church and nation and to being socially responsible in building a just, peaceful, stable, and progressive Filipino nation. DLSU is committed to building a community of leaders, competent professionals, scholars, researchers, and entrepreneurs, who will participate actively in improving the quality of life in Philippine society within the perspective of Christian ideals and values. Mr. Contreras does the exact opposite of what DLSU wants to achieve as stated in its Mission and Vision.

Mr. Contreras contradicts everything that DLSU stands for, and everything it has been inculcating among its students since 1911. The countless students under his tutelage and mentoring are exposed to the kinds of values he has. His reckless proclamations and personal attacks to public figures on social media (as well as on newspaper and radio) exposes his true character as a person, and as an educator. His political inclination is not the issue, it is his manner of speech through his social media accounts that is very disturbing. This is a petition to the University's Administration, to conduct a thorough investigation and review of Mr. Contreras' public behavior, and impose sanctions befitting his actions. Despite his actions, he is even proud that DLSU cannot and will neither investigate his actions, nor saction him due to his tenure, credentials, and recent promotion. The alumni, parents, and co-staff of DLSU cannot accept such behavior from a Lasallian professor who aligns himself closely, and shares the same values with peddlers of fake news, gossip, and intense hatred such as Ms. Sass Sasot, Ms. Mocha Uson, and Ms. Badoy.
