  • History & Memorable Moments

The University of Batangas was originally founded as Western Philippine Colleges on April 28, 1946. It started with only 48 students and the classes were conducted in a small rented house at Rizal Avenue. The founders led by Mr. Juan Y. Javier saw the need to put up an institution that would provide the youth, particularly the residents of Batangas, an opportunity to pursue higher education. The Reverend Father Vicente Catapang, Atty. Francisco Perez, Atty. Jesus Arguelles, Atty. Roman Perez and Atty. Pablo Umali shared with Mr. Juan Javier an interest in the venture to open a private college. Through their pioneering efforts and the inspiration they left as a legacy to succeeding administrators, the school eventually expanded into the biggest private school in Batangas operating strong kindergarten, elementary, secondary, undergraduate and graduate programs.[1]

After undergoing development efforts WPC was granted University status by the Commission on Higher Education on July 26, 1996. The Board of Regents, the Administration, the Faculty, the Staff and the Students welcomed guests and friends to an Open House which showcased the achievements of the different departments, literary - musical contests and cultural presentations. The three-day affair was highlighted by a Thanksgiving Mass and the Founders Memorial Lecture. The inaugural program culminated with the colorful parade headed by officers of the school and participated in by the entire non-teaching groups and studentry to demonstrate a spirit of unity. The investiture of the first President of the University, Dr. Abelardo B. Perez was held on November 11, 1996. It was a great experience for the school officials, faculty, employees.[1]
