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.
“UP is unique and in some ways immutable. The University is bigger than any one or even all of us. It has a life and an integrity of its own. We need to keep fighting for a UP truly worthy of its founders’ dreams—a UP governed by merit rather than by patronage, and led by men and women of impeccable intelligence, ability, and most of all, integrity.” -Dr. Jose “Butch” Y. Dalisay Jr. (Photo by Misael Bacani, UP MPRO)
