Bataan Peninsula State University is the only state university in the province of Bataan in the Philippines.

History[edit]

The Bataan Peninsula State University was established by Republic Act 9403 which was signed into law on 22 March 2007.

Before the conversion, BPSU used to have three campuses; two are located in the City of Balanga while the third is situated in Orani, Bataan. The passage of RA 9403 resulted in the expansion of BPSU's campuses as the Act integrated the Bataan State College in Dinalupihan and its satellite campus in Abucay. In 2008, BPSU established an extension campus in the town of Bagac, Bataan.

The Bataan Peninsula State University was established by virtue of Republic Act 9403, signed into law on 22 March 2007. It is a conglomeration of higher education institutions in Bataan.

On June 2008, the university made education more accessible to the residents of the towns of Bagac and Morong by establishing an extension in the Municipality of Bagac. The extension offers courses like BS Entrepreneurship, BS Hotel and Restaurant Management, first two years of Nursing, and General Engineering courses.

The university has three programs granted with Level 1 Accreditation from AACCUP. Fifty-six programs are scheduled for accreditation from 2008 to 2012. Six percent of the faculty have Doctorate degrees and 31 percent have master's degrees. The rest are still working on their post-baccalaureate studies. [1]

The BPSU March[edit]

Lyrics by: Bishop Socrates Villegas
Music by: Maestro Ryan Cayabyab

Dukhang pinagmulan ay di mahalaga
Lahi tayo ng bayani at liping maharlika
Dambana ng kagitingan at pagkakaisa
Bataan, Bataan magiting na peninsula.

Bataan Peninsula State University
Tahanan ng pantas at batang bayani
Punlaan ng dunong at gawang mabuti
Tagumpay at pangarap
Dito hinahabi!

Matayog ang pangarap nitong pamantasan
Maghandog sa bansa at sangkatauhan
Kabataang matalino’t kapakipakinabang
Kabataan bayani, maka-Diyos, makabayan!

Bataan Peninsula State University
Tahanan ng pantas at batang bayani
Punlaan ng dunong at gawang mabuti
Tagumpay at pangarap
Dito hinahabi!
