  • History & Memorable Moments

Jose Rizal University was originally established by Don Vicente Fabella as Far Eastern College in 1919, its name was changed to Jose Rizal College in 1922. First located at Arlegui Street, the College transferred to R. Hidalgo Street soon afterwards, moving to its present location in Mandaluyong in 1949. It remained closed throughout the Japanese Occupation, as its head had joined the guerilla movement. Don Vincente Fabella was the first Filipino to obtain a Certificate in Public Accountancy from the United States making as the First Filipino Certified Public Accountant. [1]

Originally offering commerce and high school degrees, the College expanded its offerings to include an elementary school, education and liberal arts at the undergraduate level, and law, business administration, public administration, and education at the graduate level. It has its own research publication, the Journal of Business, Education and Law. The College is especially proud of Ramon Magsaysay who graduated with a Bachelor's degree in 1933 and who subsequently became the 7th President of the Philippines. [1]

The College obtained Level III accreditation from the PACU-COA in November 1999, and was granted university status by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) on October 2, 2000. [1]

Jose Rizal University joined the National Collegiate Athletic Association in 1927. The varsity team are the Jose Rizal University Heavy Bombers. [1]
