The Universitas Fellows’ Night (UFN) is a monthly gathering of Universitas fellows, UFP fellows (those who are still undergoing the Universitas Fellows Program), and their friends. The UFN is intended to foster friendship and camaraderie among the people closely involved in running the affairs of the Foundation.
Each Fellows’ Night features a guest speaker who would share personal knowledge, experiences and insights from their own field of profession or interest, which are hoped to inspire the fellows in living out the core principles of the Foundation, namely, competence, character and conscience. Some of the guest speakers in the past UFN’s include Dr. Jose Maria Mariano (former president of University of Asia & the Pacific), and Atty. Alex Lacson (prominent lawyer and best-selling author).
The UFN also provides opportunity for the fellows to bring and introduce their friends to Universitas.

Leadership is a topic that is, admittedly, talked about ad nauseam by scores of influential speakers. Lead from the front, lead by example, and list of oft-repeated catchphrases shared in typical fora on the subject goes on.
