Lyceum of the Philippines University-Batangas (LPU-B), a private tertiary educational institution located in Region IV-A was established in 1966 by the late Senator, Dr. Sotero H. Laurel adopting the educational philosophy of his father, former President of the Philippines-Jose P. Laurel. The present members of the Board of Trustees of LPU-B belong to a family of reputable educators in our country, namely: Mrs. Lorna P. Laurel as the Chair with the following members: Miss Josefina P. Laurel, Atty. Roberto P. Laurel, Mr. Carlos P. Laurel, Mr. Ricardo P. Laurel, Dr. Peter P. Laurel, Atty. Mark P. Laurel, Dr. Paulino Y. Tan, and Dr. Yolinda G. Balmes.   This institution formally received its University status from the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) in 2008. Consequently, it has also maintained the Autonomous status, the highest recognition being awarded by CHED to few tertiary educational institutions in the country, after obtaining it in 2009 and 2016.

LPU-B is committed to a culture of quality and excellence marked by a familial spirit and a harmonious work environment that is embedded in its vision and mission.

Believing that schools should provide quality education, the LPU-B management crafted the vision of becoming a leading university in the Asia Pacific Region, dedicated to the development of the integral individual who constantly seeks the truth and acts with fortitude (Veritas et Fortitudo) in the service of God and country (Pro deo et Patria). To meet the present demands of the highly competitive world, this vision was reviewed several times and now reads To be a recognized industry-driven university in the Asia Pacific Region by 2026. Correspondingly its mission statement was also reviewed to ensure that LPU-B achieves its new vision.

Today, LPU-B offers 55 degree and non-degree programs, delivered through online and blended delivery of instruction using the enhanced Commission on Higher Education (CHED) curriculum and standards also guided by appropriate standards set by professional organizations and regulatory bodies. The school employs around 500 teaching and non-teaching personnel to serve the needs of its more than 7,000 student populace. Its core competencies are Hospitality Management, Tourism, Marine Transportation, Dentistry, Medical Technology, Accountancy, and Business Administration.

Through the efforts of the entire LPU-B Family, the university has been given the Four QS Stars Rating in 2021 following its recognition as the Philippines’ First Private Non-Sectarian QS Stars Rated University in 2016, it was also given the Global Performance Excellence Award – World Class Award (Highest) in Education Category by the Asia Pacific Quality Organization in 2017. LPU-B also received the Philippine Quality Award (PQA) as Recognition for its Proficiency in Quality Management in 2015 after obtaining the PQA Recognition for Commitment to Quality Management in 2012 – the fourth school in the Philippines to receive this distinction and the first in Region IV.

In 2012, CHED formally awarded LPU-B as Center of Excellence (COE) for International Hospitality Management (IHM) and Center of Development (COD) for International Travel and Tourism Management (ITTM); and in 2016, it has been granted COE for both IHM and ITTM programs and Medical Laboratory Science program; and COD for Business Administration and Information Technology programs. Likewise, the international accreditation of IHM and ITTM programs by the International Center of Excellence for Tourism and Hospitality Education (THE-ICE) and the recent International Centre of Excellence accreditation by the Asia Pacific Institute for Events Management (APIEM) have been awarded for both undergraduate and graduate degree programs – again, another first in the Asia Pacific.

LPU-B has made great strides in the past few years. In 2015, it was also awarded as the first university in Asia to be Gold – accredited by the international standards for human resource training and development, the Investors in People (IiP) and in the year 2017, the university also received the IiP Gold (Generation 6) Accreditation, still, the first university in Asia to receive the award based on the new standard.

Its Quality Management System has been certified to ISO Standard since 2006 and has migrated and certified to the latest ISO 9001:2015 Standard by the Certification International (CI) this 2021. Also, the university has been granted the Institutional Accreditation Status by the Philippine Association of Colleges and Universities Commission on Accreditation (PACUCOA) for having more than 75% of its program offerings accredited.

LPU-B Alumni are gainfully employed and enjoy success in their respective career/s in the country and abroad.

The success of LPU-B is attributed to its high student performance, competent, dedicated, and motivated employees, relevant curricula, upgraded facilities and up-to-date technological equipment, good campus climate, efficient and effective support processes, and strong management support.

The present thrust of LPU-B towards an outcomes-based education has triggered major changes and innovations in the teaching and learning processes to ensure that instruction will bring about the desired outcomes stipulated in the course syllabi. LPU-B uses the results of the various processes and strategies as primary indicators in defining its organizational excellence.

All is set for LPU-B’s continued journey towards sustainable organizational excellence in the service of God and country.

All our facilities, resources, and efforts shall be dedicated to deliver quality education, training and services in consideration of risk management.

EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY

The mission of Lyceum as an educational institution is inspired by the Philosophy of Education of its founder, Dr. Jose P. Laurel, who said:

Education is a continuing process, a process that must, if it is to be effective and socially beneficial, seek to develop all the God-given faculties and the talents of the individual to their highest unfolding in order to make him an asset to his country and to the world community of which he is a part.

A well-rounded and thorough educational training of the individual should not only develop his body and sharpen his intellect but also teach him to appreciate spiritual and moral values and prepare him for material welfare through vocational, agricultural, or professional specialization.

An educational program geared exclusively to the needs and problems of the individual and the country would be fruitless and dangerously inadequate, however, if it did not take into account the problems of the modern world and if it did not inculcate certain virtues and social values that would make for international peace, which, after all, is the universal desire of men. Nationalism versus communism are some of the mighty forces now engaged in fateful rivalry on the world stage, and these competitions cannot be ignored in the formulation and implementation of the Filipino’s educational program.
