St. Paul University Philippines (SPUP) is one of 40 schools owned, managed, and operated by the Sisters of St. Paul of Chartres (SPC) in the Philippines. It is the only University among the schools of the SPC Sisters in the Philippines, offering basic education to graduate school programs.

Brief History[edit]

St. Paul University Philippines (SPUP) was founded on May 10, 1907, as Colegio de San Pablo, by the Sisters of St. Paul of Chartres, (Mother Ephrem Marie Fieu, Sr. Suzanne du Sacre Coeur Cran, Sr. Agnes de Sainte Anne Couplan, and Sr. Jeanne de St. Louis Bourrelly, Sr. Marie Angeline Acau and Postulant Sr. Ste. Foy de Sacre Coeur Sacramento) who came to Cagayan Valley upon the invitation of Bishop Dennis Dougherty. Later on, the school’s name was changed to Colegio del Sagrado Corazon de Jesus in 1909 then to Sacred Heart of Jesus Institution (SHOJI) in 1931. The school started in a Spanish Convento, adjoining the Cathedral, but due to increase of enrollment and curricular expansion, the community moved to the Colegio de San Jacinto and its grounds in 1934 (where the University stands today) which the SPC Sisters acquired from the Dominican Order.

The school was overtaken by Japanese forces and became their military garrison and hospital in 1941. The entire complex was razed to the ground during Liberation. In 1948, the school undertook the initiative of being the first Teacher-Training Institution of Cagayan Valley, as it assumed the name St. Paul College of Tuguegarao. With the opening of college degrees, the school became the first accredited institution in the region by the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (PAASCU) in 1961. However, the entire complex was reduced into ashes on January 18, 1965. Despite the challenges and like a gold tested in fire, SPUP became the First University and Catholic University in Cagayan Valley in 1982.

In July 2014, SPUP was conferred a full accredited status by the International Accreditation Organization (IAO) based in the United States of America in recognition of its outstanding organizational management, business management and business performance through its commitment to quality and continuous improvement.

In recognition of its institutional efforts towards heritage conservation and cultural preservation, SPUP has been identified by the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines through the Episcopal Commission on Culture (CBCP-ECC) as a Catholic Cultural Center in 2012. Through this designation, SPUP is tasked to collaborate in the conservation of the patrimony of the Church and to promote greater awareness of the Church’s heritage through education, worship and the Sacraments.

Today, SPUP is recognized by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) as an Autonomous Institution; Center of Excellence in Nursing; Center of Development in Business Education, Information Technology and Teacher Education; deputized institution for the Expanded Tertiary Education Equivalency Accreditation Program (ETEAAP); Most Outstanding Student Services; and, the Lead School of the St. Paul University System.
