The De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde (DLS-CSB) has announced the appointment of Martin Czyrus Romero as the new director for the Benilde Center for Inclusive Education (CIE), effective second term of the Academic Year (AY) 2023 to 2024.

He initially joined the Benildean community in July 2014 as a research assistant in the Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Research (OIER). He played a vital role to improve the college’s entrance examination, specifically tailored for the new graduates of the K-12 program in the Philippines.

Romero, who is also a certified mental health first responder, worked as a learning support case manager in January 2017. In his role, he supervised students with specific learning needs and psychoemotional concerns. He managed multiple collaborative programs that improved the social skills of differently-abled learners.

Romero was eventually appointed as the officer-in-charge director for Benilde CIE. During his term, he collaborated for the Inclusion Services Fund, which was used for scholarship grants for Filipino Sign Language (FSL) Program enrollees, as well as the implementation of interpretation, assessment, and doctor consultation fees.

He likewise spearheaded sensitivity training seminars geared toward equipping the Benildean community with necessary skills to handle students with learning needs.

With units under the Master of Arts in Counseling at the De La Salle University Manila, he is the present faculty adviser of Best Buddies Philippines, a non-profit organization that promotes friendship to people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD).
