  • History & Memorable Moments

The Lyceum of the Philippines University (LPU) is an institute of higher education located in Intramuros, Manila. It was founded by Dr. Jose P. Laurel, who became the third president of the Philippines and one of the most acclaimed. It is the only university founded by a president of the republic. The university is named after lykeion, the grove in ancient Athens where Aristotle taught his pupils. The institute's educational vision is founded on principles Dr. Jose P. Laurel set down. [1]

Two of its most prominent features are its entry point, the "Hall of Heroes" which exhibits busts of revered Philippine historical figures sculpted by the National Artist Guillermo Tolentino; and, the famous "Lyceum Tower" which stands witness to the university's history and continuing progress. [1]

The university's namesake affiliates include:

    • Lyceum of Batangas in Batangas City, Batangas;
    • Lyceum Institute of Technology in Calamba City, Laguna;
    • Lyceum - St. Cabrini College of Allied Medicine (a joint effort between the Lyceum and St. Cabrini Medical Center) in Sto. Tomas, Batangas.
    • Lyceum of Cavite in General Trias, Cavite (Expected to be opened in June 2008). [1]

All branches will soon bear the same name and logo under the Lyceum University System. [1]

Many disciplines are taught in the university, yet foreign service has consistently remained the university's flagship course. The Lyceum of the Philippines University has produced many leaders and officials in Philippine public service as well as in the country's foreign affairs department. [1]

It is a member of the Intramuros Consortium which includes the technical school Mapua Institute of Technology, the Catholic school Colegio de San Juan de Letran, and the city-owned Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila (University of the City of Manila). [1]

Lyceum of the Philippines University opened its gates to its first students on July 7, 1952. [1]
