Constituent Universities

Much has changed in UP over the past 100 years. From one campus in Manila, it now has eight constituent universities with 17 campuses all over the country; it has 258 undergraduate programs; and 438 graduate programs with students from almost every region in the country.
On April 29, 2008, President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo signed the new UP Charter or Republic Act 9500. Efforts for the enactment of a new UP Charter go back to the term of UP President Edgardo Angara and were further studied during the term of UP President Jose Abueva. With the new mandate, the university faces the challenges of the 21st century by continuously exercising its distinctive leadership in higher education and development.
From the education of ordinary Filipinos under Americans at the time of UP President Bartlett to its journey onto another century under the stewardship of President Danilo Lardizabal Concepcion, the university has produced at least 37 National Scientists; at least 39 National Artists; 7 out of the 16 Presidents of the Republic; 13 Chief Justices of the Supreme Court; at least 15,000 doctors; 8,000 lawyers; 15,000 engineers; 23,000 teachers and hundreds of thousands of graduates in other academic fields.
