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. The school’s name was changed to Colegio del Sagrado Corazon de Jesus in 1909, then to Sacred Heart of Jesus Institution (SHOJI) in 1925. 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 served as military garrison and hospital of the Japanese forces in 1941. The entire complex was razed to the ground during the Liberation. In 1948, the school undertook the initiative of being the first Teacher-Training Institution in Cagayan Valley, as it assumed the name St. Paul College of Tuguegarao (SPCT). 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 its efforts towards global and international education, SPUP gained the distinction for being the First Private Catholic University in Asia and the First Private University in the Philippines to be granted ISO 9001 Certification by TUV Rheinland in 2000 and the only University accredited by the Asian Association of Schools of Business International (AASBI) in 2014. Moreover, in preparation for the ASEAN Regional Integration, SPUP has been designated as one of the twelve participating schools in the country for the ASEAN International Mobility for Students (AIMS) programme. 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 the fields of arts and culture, the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines through the Episcopal Commission on Culture (CBCP-ECC) identified SPUP as a Catholic Center for Culture 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. In 2014, the National Historical Commission of the Philippines bestowed SPUP a Historical Marker in recognition of its contribution in the historical development of Cagayan Valley in the fields of education and public service. This made SPUP one of the government-recognized historical landmarks in the region and in the country.

Today, SPUP is recognized by the Commission on Higher Education as an Autonomous Institution; Center of Excellence in Nursing; Center of Development in Business Education, Information Technology and Teacher Education; a 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.

For more than a century of existence, SPUP has proven its tradition of excellence and untarnished reputation of providing quality, Catholic, Paulinian education. It has continuously form graduates, propelling the nation’s progress and personifying values and virtues; thereby, contributing to social transformation in the service of the nation, the Church and the entire humanity.
