  • History & Memorable Moments

Established through the initiative of the UP alumni in Baguio and Benguet, the University of the Philippines in Baguio was inaugurated as a degree-granting unit of the University on April 22, 1961. A land grant worked out by alumni, the City Council, and by then UP President Vicente Cinco situated the College on its present location, a pine clad hill offering a panoramic view of Baguio. [1]

The College went on to make its presence felt as it served as the site of National Arts Festivals in the coming years. Moves were made to strengthen its research capabilities, culminating in the institution of the Cordillera Studies Center in 1983. Directions toward autonomy began with strategic planning in 1996. The following years saw the College working assiduously in the reformulation and strengthening of its academic programs, primarily. Administration of the College likewise oversaw the development in infrastructure and improvement of services and facilities. [1]

Such growth led to the elevation of UP College Baguio to full autonumous status, granted by the Board of Regents in December 2002. [1]

UP Baguio is now the seventh constituent university of the University of the Philippines System. [1]

As the newest constituent university of the UP System, UP Baguio initially operates five academic units, namely, the College of Arts and Communication, College of Science, College of Social Sciences, Institute of Management, and Program in Human Kinetics. The colleges will be headed by their respective deans, the Institute of Management by a director, and the Program in Human Kinetics by a coordinator. [1]

As of 2001, the Commission on Higher Education of the Philippines has identified 3 National Centers of Excellence/Development (COEs/CODs) in UP Baguio. The COEs/CODs in the University are Biology, Mathematics, and Physics. [1]
