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.
“We recognize that a national university exists not to profit the pocket, but to enrich the mind and to enlarge the soul of our people. We stand firm in the belief that all forms of knowledge benefit humanity, and that part of our mission is to employ that knowledge for social transformation.”—UP President Danilo L. Concepción in his investiture address. (Photo by Misael Bacani, UP MPRO)
