  • History & Memorable Moments

The Missionaries of Our Lady of La Salette, from the Immaculate Heart of Mary Province of the United States of America, (USA) responded to the request of the Most Reverend Bishop Constance Jurgens of Tuguegarao, Cagayan Valley to meet the spiritual and educational needs of the people of Cagayan Valley particularly in the Province of Isabela. The missionaries arrived in Manila, Philippines on December 12, 1948, and finally reached Santiago, Isabela on the 22nd day of December of the same year. The Missionaries started opening schools upon their arrival and the La Salette of Santiago, Inc. was established in June, 1951, which started with its High School Department. A year later, realizing the dire need for a higher institution of learning and aware of the financial constraints of which prevented or made it almost impossible for the poor students in the province to obtain college education in Manila, the college department was opened with two course offerings: Certificate in Secretarial Science and Associate in Arts. [1]

The challenge of being a University continues to inspire the administration to update and expand the curricular programs. It has established several Graduate School extension classes in the Provinces of Cagayan and Isabela through its Center for Alternative Learning in order to respond to the call for borderless education and community service. The University of La Salette was one of the universities in Region 02 which was deputized by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) Manila to implement the Expanded Tertiary Education Equivalency and Accreditation Program (ETEEAP). The Memorandum of Agreement was signed by the University President and Commissioner Mona D. Valisno on May 19, 1999. Today, University of La Salette, with its population close to eight thousand, stands with pride in serving the youth of Santiago City, Province of Isabela and the entire Cagayan Valley. In pursuit of academic excellence, Christian formation, leadership and service, University of La Salette continues to offer well-rounded education that provides an opportunity for self-realization and actualization. Each one is called to continue to live by heart the message of Our Lady of La Salette for conversion, prayer and zeal and to make her message known to all people. [1]
