The University of Southeastern Philippines (abbrev. USeP; Tagalog: Pamantasan ng Timog-Silangan ng Pilipinas, Cebuano: Unibersidad sa Habagatan-Sidlakang Pilipinas) is a national state university based in Davao City, Philippines. Founded in December 15, 1978, the university is an integration of four state institutions: Mindanao State University-Davao, the University of the Philippines-Master of Management Program in Davao, the Davao School of Arts and Trades, and the Davao National Regional Agricultural School.[1][2] It was the first state university in Davao Region.

The university has four campuses: Obrero (main) and Mintal campuses in Davao City, Tagum-Mabini Campus which has two units — one in Tagum City and one in Mabini in Compostela Valley Province — and Bislig Campus in Surigao del Sur.

USeP currently is the 5th best tertiary institution in the country and included in 250-300 bracket as one of the best universities in Asia;[3] it is currently also the top-performing university in Visayas and Mindanao island groups.

History[edit]

On December 15, 1978 marked the birth of the first ever state university in Region XI. On this date, Batas Pambansa Blg. 12 was passed, thereby creating the University of Southeastern Philippines.

The integration of the School of Arts and Trades (DSAT) and the Davao National Regional Agricultural School (DNRAS) paved the way for the birth of the five USeP campuses: the Davao City main campus in Obrero with an area of 6.5 hectares; the Mintal campus, Davao City that has an area of 2.8 hectares; the Tagum campus, Tagum City with a 77-hectare land area; the Mabini campus which lies in a 109-hectare land area in Mampising, Mabini, Compostela Valley Province; and the latest addition, Bislig campus in Bislig City, Surigao del Sur with an area of 9.7 hectares.

The early years saw birth of the College of Engineering and Technology in Obrero campus, the College of Forestry and Agriculture at Tagum and Mabini campuses and College of Arts and Sciences in Mintal campus. The succeeding years witnessed developments in the academic and administrative realms of USEP.

In 1993, through a Board of Regents (BOR) resolution, External Studies Programs were established. These were USEP-Hinatuan Ext. Program in Surigao del Sur; USEP-Baganga External Studies Program in Davao Oriental; USEP-Kapalong College of Agricultural Technology and Entrepreneurship and USEP-Pantukan External Studies Program.

In 1996, USEP-Bislig campus in Surigao del Sur was established. PICOP waived nine hectares of Barangay Maharlika, Bislig for the initial campus.

From 1993 to 1997, new units were created. Among them were Mindanao Center for Policy Studies (MCPS); Affiliated Non-Conventional Energy Center (ANEC) for Region XI; Office of Admission and Student Records (OASR); Medical Division; Institute of Urban Finance and Management; University Testing and Guidance Office (UGTO); Project Implementation Unit (PIU); Institute of Computing (IC) and Center for Professministrative and organizational structure of the university to make it more responsive to changing needs and to enable the university to engage more in research and extension. Today, it has a modified organizational structure of the university, which sees the continued implementation of the university's decentralization policies under established policy guidelines, which has resulted to more effective and efficient units.[citation needed] The Evening Program implemented through BOR resolution No. 2732 accommodates students who could not make it in the regular day program with some variation in fees. Also, Summer Program has been approved. By the year 2001, the total number of curriculum offerings was 31 for the Graduate School and 28 for the Undergraduate Program.

Beginning 2002, the Office of the President under the administration of Dr. Julieta I. Ortiz identified and pursued Program Accreditation as one of the major thrusts of the university. The same year, three programs were awarded Level I status by AACCUP. These were BSED of USeP Tagum and Obrero, BEED of Obrero and Forestry and Agricultural Engineering of Tagum. Today, 16 of its undergraduate programs are accredited academic units.
