The Office of Field Activities Diliman, or OFA Diliman, was established to respond to the need to properly contextualize and operationalize academic field activities at the University. Hence, OFA operates on the banner goal of “Context”. Formerly, all the academic field activities (AFAs) were handled directly by OVCAA with support from a Project Development Associate (PDA). Afterwards, it was devolved to OFA Diliman, one of the institutionalized offices under the approved reorganization of OVCAA (Memorandum No. OVCAA-BMP 16-185) by the UP Board of Regents (BOR) during its 1316th meeting on March 31, 2016, and operationalized through Executive Order No. PAEP 16-02 dated 26 April 2016 and Memorandum No. OVCAA-BMP 16-189.
