The University of Saint Louis Tuguegarao is a private Roman Catholic university in Tuguegarao City, Cagayan province, Philippines, administered by the CICM Missionaries of the Congregatio Immaculati Cordis Mariae (CICM).[1] It traces its roots from a diocesan secondary school named Cagayan Valley Atheneum established in 1938 by Msgr. Constant Jurgens, CICM, D.D., a Dutch by nationality, then Bishop of the Diocese of Tuguegarao and a CICM missionary and great educator. The CICM Fathers took over administration of the school in 1965.
