Institution

Saint Louis University is regarded as one of the Philippines' respected and leading educational institutions that has grown with the demands of the current and future environments for its students and faculty alike.

Around two hundred fifty kilometers north of Manila lies Baguio City, known to be the "Summer Capital of the Philippines" that enjoys temperate climate all year round. From a village resort established by the Americans, Baguio has become the Northern Philippines' center of business and commerce as well as the center of education. Saint Louis University has played a pivotal role in the evolution of the City into a center for learning in the North.

Today, SLU is the largest university north of Manila with more than 30,000 students from the elementary, high school and college levels. Its reputation for excellence attracts students and scholars not only from the Philippines but from other countries as well. It has sustained itself throughout the past ninety years to become one of the top centers of academic excellence in the Philippines that meet international standards in tertiary education. Most of its programs, from the elementary to the graduate level, have received the highest level of accreditation in the country.

SLU has four campuses: the main campus at A. Bonifacio Street, St. Aloysius de Gonzaga Campus (for Elementary, Teacher Education and Law) at General Luna Road, Navy Base Campus (for High School) in Pacdal and the Maryheights Campus (for Accountancy and Business management) in Bakakeng. It has become the venue for seminars, various fora, and other special events of the public and private sectors in the Cordillera, in addition to the everyday conduct of student life in the University. It has welcomed within its walls an eclectic mix of various cultures, traditions, beliefs and nationalities.

Admissions

Each academic year, more and more students – locals and foreigners alike – are coming to study at Saint Louis University. We take it as a positive sign of the growing number of people who search for quality education aiming for a brighter future. The University attracts them and welcomes them all. It is a joy to share with them the Louisian tradition of academic excellence.

A student’s application for admission is given due course by the University. All the qualifications prescribed by the University and the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) MUST ALSO BE MET. However, the University reserves the right at any time to refuse, not to admit or readmit, students under certain conditions. [3]

Schools and Divisions

Sapientia aedificat, that is, "wisdom builds" or "knowledge edifies," is the motto of Saint Louis University. Impelled by this profound human truth, SLU has faithfully carried out its avowed educational mission since its foundation in 1911. As a Christian institution of higher learning, SLU has, through the years, formed and shaped young people who are imbued with Christian spirit and are competent, creative and socially involved.

At present, Saint Louis University has nine schools (formerly colleges) offering graduate and undergraduate programs in pursuit of this mission. They are:

The school opened in 1952 as the College of Commerce, initially offering four-year degree courses in Accountancy and Finance, as well as two-year Associate courses. Over the years and in response to the dynamic nature of business education, the school expanded to include courses in Economics, Marketing, Banking, and in Entrepreneurial, Business, Human Resources, and Hospitality and Tourism Management.

Recognized as a Center of Development in Business Education, the school ensures its students’ success in the spirited business arena by matching its programs and courses with the current developments in the field. Maintaining active linkages and organization memberships, hosting international conferences, and sending faculty to relevant trainings further enhance the curriculum. The possession of a creative flair gives any business practitioner a competitive edge. This is why the school adopts learning methodologies that develop critical thinking, advance innovation, and inspire artistry with products and services.

The school established the Business Research, Extension and Development (BREAD) Center in 2003 to serve as the University’s hub for ideas and studies in answer to current business or socio-economic issues and concerns. Through its facilities, the school has been a very prolific innovator, publisher and presenter of researches on such buzz topics as city competitiveness, economic valuation, product sensory testing, and emotional advertising, among many.

As part of its extension objectives, the school works towards the improvement of socio-economic conditions and the promotion of economic self-reliance of local communities. To this end, the school designs modules on business education and provides trainings on profitable livelihood programs. It has also worked in close partnership with the government acclaimed SLU Extension Institute for Small Scale Industries Foundation (EISSIF) in introducing the bee-keeping project in selected municipalities in the Cordilleras. This thriving program has since proven to be a viable and popular source of revenue in the highlands.

In 2010, the school moved to its new campus at Bakakeng, Baguio City which is now called the Maryheights Campus. the main academic building was named after SLU's founder, Fr. Seraphin Devesse,

Notwithstanding the school’s brisk growth, it shall remain, as the CICM Fathers envisioned its important role in the business world many years ago, a place where the essentials of efficient and ethical management to steer the society towards economic and financial stability, is taught and valued.

School of Computing and Information Sciences

Baccalaureate Courses

  • Bachelor of Library and Information Science (BLIS)
  • Bachelor of Science in Computer Science (BSCS)
  • Bachelor of Science in Information Management (BSIM)
  • Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (BSIT)
  • Bachelor of Science in Mathematics (BS Math)
  • Bachelor of Science in Statistics (BS Stat)

Post-Baccalaureate Courses

  • Master of Science in Information Technology (MSIT)

The youngest School in SLU traces its roots to the vision of then VP for Finance and later University President, Rev. Fr. Ghisleen de Vos (1976-1983). Forward thinking and possessed with a progressive management style, Fr. de Vos foresaw the full automation of some university systems like the accounting and enrolment processes at a period when computerization was not yet widely practiced in the country. With the acquisition of the IBM systems in 1969 and in 1980, SLU also catered to the computing needs of other institutions in nearby regions.

The SLU Computer Center handled these tasks until 1990 when it evolved into the Institute of Information and Computing Science and offered a course in Computer Science. The institute was soon after converted into a college in 1994, and eventually the management of computing and IT needs of the different sectors of the university were devolved into the newly installed MIS and SLU NET Offices. Courses in Information Technology, Mathematics, Information Management, and Library and Information Science were added over time.

New as it was then, the school was already a trailblazer in IT education. It was the first in the region to offer a graduate program in IT in 1995. The advanced curriculum was further strengthened with globe-spanning linkages, faculty scholarships and trainings, and invitation of international lecturers. The School hosted the first ever Northern Luzon international IT conference in 2007 with students, professionals and experts from the world over in attendance. It has since conducted annual regional IT congresses which showcase researches and projects in the field from different universities and industries.

This Center of Development in IT education continuously introduces program innovations to match current demands and skills in the profession. The School’s ICT Research Laboratory designed and manages the University’s Learning Management System, and the Research Digital Repository System which serve as online storehouse portals for course notes, researches, forums, and class records. The School has worked on and is currently completing studies on promising areas in IT research such as natural language processing using local dialects (e.g., Ilocano and Tagalog), computational mathematics and algorithm, mobile and wireless computing, and measurement of IT literacy and fluency. People skilled in Digital Arts technology are among the most in-demand workers in several industries today. To meet this demand, and in support to the Philippine government’s call for HEIs to offer ladderized technical or vocational programs, the School offers short diploma courses in digital animation, multimedia systems, digital design, editing and publishing, and the like.

The latest addition to the School’s graduate programs - the Masters of Science in Service Management Engineering (MSSME) - makes SLU the first in the country to offer this now trending academic initiative. The degree aims at advancing, managing, evaluating and optimizing systems in the global service industry. Developed in coordination with Prof. Dr. Guido Dedene, a renowned global IT expert, this course is a multidisciplinary program which also includes subjects from the Schools of Engineering and Architecture, and Accountancy and Business Management of SLU.

The School is distinguished to be one of the select HEIs tapped by the Philippine Statistical Research and Training Center as the focal place for regional trainings to accelerate statistical capability building in the nation.

Apart from producing technologically savvy professionals, the School wants to make itself socially relevant through the sharing of its expertise and resources. It donated numerous computer units in 2007 to the Baguio City National High School (BCNHS) as part of a collaborative project with the Close the Gap (CTG) alliance program of Belgium. As a component of the project, the School additionally designed and conducted a series of training programs for the teachers of the BCNHS on several computer and web-based applications.

The School’s future looks bright as it continues to soar with the speed of rapid modernization. The School of Computing and Information and Sciences recognizes though that the power to create, command, and control information technology comes with great responsibility. The School therefore primes itself not only on setting new academic directions towards the advancement of IT and Computing education and research, but also on advocating the ethical use of information and computing technology.

The School’s success story started with its humble beginnings in 1952 when it initially opened Basic Engineering subjects atop the silversmith shop of what is now St. Louis School Center Elementary Department. In a few short years, complete courses in Civil, Electrical, Mechanical, Chemical, Electronics and Communications, and Industrial Engineering were offered, together with Surveying and Architecture.

The School topped the enrolment statistics in the University early on. It was a testament to the growing interest and confidence in the technological courses in SLU, albeit new in the field. The popularity of the School in its start-up years was most certainly instantaneous, with its first set of graduates making it to the top notch list of board examinees, and with some of its subjects taught by international experts from the USA and Europe. It was, in fact, named as one of the top five Engineering Schools in the country in the eighties. To this day, students of School of Engineering and Architecture continue to bring in various honors to the University for their inventions, technical creations, ground-breaking researches, and outstanding performance in competitions. Graduates of this School still remain the most employable alumni of the University.

Recognized as a Center of Development for most of its courses, the School continues to introduce innovations to the technological programs in the University. It now offers a course in Mechatronics Engineering, a multidisciplinary program that integrates electronics, electrical, computer, mechanical, design, and systems engineering to produce useful creations such as industrial robots. Curriculum updates and enhancement of faculty skills are done regularly to ensure that each program remains relevant. Moreover, the School’s graduate courses are purposely designed to respond to present global concerns such as Environmental Engineering, and Environmental and Habitat Planning. It has recently inked an agreement with Philex Mining Corporation for the re-opening of the Mining Engineering program to provide the country with skilled professionals in this (re)emerging field.

In addition to several well-equipped laboratories, two new research centers were established in the School to support its multifarious academic activities. The Environmental Research Laboratory (ERL) and the Engineering Urban Planning Laboratory (EUPL) are service laboratories at the forefront of activities concerned with improving and monitoring the quality of the physical environment we live in. Through the ERL, the School ventured into studies on air and water quality monitoring in the city and nearby provinces. With the provision of modern equipment and software in the Geographic Information System (GIS) technology, the EUPL completed and is currently undertaking researches on the use of this tool. The usefulness and versatility of the GIS technology is explored and maximized with projects on remote sensing mapping, crime control, identification of landfill sites, and creation of information base for historical sites and high-input agricultural ecosystems, among many.

The School identifies with the needs of the community, so much so that maintains its long-running and hosts new outreach and extension activities under each department. It is actively involved in safety information drives, clean up and environmental awareness campaigns, and numerous social involvement activities. It has active partnerships with leading national and international institutions on the creation and implementation of disaster management plans, and of solutions to transportation and traffic concerns especially for the upland regions.

Technology, whether crude or developed, is only as good as its user. The School of Engineering and Architecture therefore strives to be the source of not only competent engineers but also builders and makers whose characters are indubitable. It is not only a place where technical ingenuity is enhanced, but it is also where students are taught that the power of technology should respected and valued for the good it can do for humanity.

The School’s unique Christian general education program provides meaning and purpose, and an illuminating context for all knowledge learned. Such extensive and enlightened knowledge has developed among its students a discerning nature, the capacity to make informed judgment, and the propensity towards wise action.

The School of Humanities (previously known for a long time as the College of Human Sciences) was formally recognized as a separate department in 1967 when the then College of Liberal Arts (founded in 1952) was divided into the Colleges of Human Sciences and Natural Sciences, respectively.

As originally envisioned, the School conscientiously strives for a holistic human development with its liberal arts curriculum. The wide-ranging programs guarantee students a diverse body of knowledge which enhances human creativity and is required for most jobs or endeavors. The School of Humanities aims to promote a genuine understanding of the human spirit. As such, it utilizes varied learning strategies for its multidisciplinary curriculum. This includes Philosophy, Psychology, English, Political Science, Mass Communications, Social Work, and very recently, Legal and Interdisciplinary Studies.

True to its name, the School has always been at the forefront of dealing with contemporary human interests and concerns. It has sponsored peace campaigns, and programs on the appreciation for world religions, mental health, women’s rights, politics, and many more. There are also many historical, anthropological, sociological and ethnographic researches completed and presently undertaken by the School.

The School’s early years were marked with notable citations for studies done on highland cultures. The pioneering work of anthropology and social sciences CICM professors Frs. Frans Lambrecht, Alfons Claerhoudt, and Juul De Raedt on Cordillera literature, songs and dances, and tribal and religious rituals earned for the University awards from the Philippine government and praise from the international community.

Drawing on this inspiration and to aid in students’ researches in the social sciences, the Department of Social Sciences in 1968 started a collection campaign for artifacts and relics of art and culture particularly of Northern Luzon. This initiative gave rise to the now famous SLU Museum of Culture and Arts which houses a diverse collection of ethnological and historical artifacts, ethnographic items, and volumes of folkloric collection.

The University has kept the legacy and interest on the Cordillera culture of the pioneer CICM fathers alive by establishing the Cordillera Research and Development Foundation, Inc. This affiliate unit of the University, purposely set up to encourage and support researches on the culture, history, religion, economy and language in the Cordilleras, produced several publications on this rich indigenous culture.

The school embraces its role in promoting global opportunities in education with its enhanced curriculum, exchange programs, and course offerings. It maintains active linkages with esteemed universities overseas, particularly for its Social Work and English courses. With a growing number of requests from various academic institutions around the globe for English language proficiency training, the School opened the Institute of Foreign Languages and International Studies in 2006. This institute offers interested clients intensive courses to facilitate learning of a new language and to promote intercultural understanding and communication. In its four years of operation, it has served over 300 individuals of more than a dozen nationalities.

School of Law

  • Bachelor of Laws (LL. B.)

It comes as no surprise that the CICM founding Fathers of SLU established the School of Law as one of its earliest colleges. After all, one of their reasons for spreading Catholic education was to produce men and women who have an enlightened sense of justice, and who will stand up for what is right. The offering of a law course was timely too in those post war years when the whole country was re-constructing its political identity and it needed men learned in the intricate art of leadership and governance. Many of those trained in the school have indeed become esteemed political leaders and professionals in their respective fields.

Early on, the college made a remarkable show of competence when its first graduates hurdled the 1958 bar examinations with a one hundred percent passing mark. This feat inspired many to enroll in the college and have not regretted doing so. The School of Law consistently ranks as one the top ten law schools among (currently) 105 schools in the country.

The values that SLU stands for is evident in the training of Louisian lawyers. The school has always been conscientious in producing not only highly capable lawyers, but who are ethically principled as well. In the school, the role of Christian virtues in conflict resolution and social reform are emphasized. Legal ethics is likewise made an integral part of instruction. To broaden and update their knowledge of law, the school encourages its students to conduct researches on novel legal issues, and the possibility of collaborative studies with other schools or legal institutions is explored. The missionary heart is not lost in the school’s faculty and students who graciously render services in the Free Legal Clinics regularly organized by the school.

Imbued with these values, the Louisian lawyer stands apart from his peers. He can address the contemporary society’s burgeoning legal trepidations armed with what the Biblical Solomon prayed for, “a discernment for justice so that people will know good and evil”.

School of Medicine

  • Doctor of Medicine (MD)

What began as a concern for the growing health needs in the remote areas of the Cordilleras brought into existence the SLU School of Medicine, also known as the International School of Medicine. As early as 1971, SLU has been sending its Medical Technology students to the far-flung municipalities of the region to conduct clinical tests and research. A public charity clinic manned by volunteer physicians, nurses and medical technologists was also launched by the University in the same year. The students’ excursions, medical missions and clinical cases revealed many diseases prevalent in these areas, and soon SLU saw the need to meet these needs on long-term basis, by establishing a college of medicine in the region.

A firm believer of the “see, discern, act” philosophy, SLU thought it best to produce medical doctors to help address these concerns. And so in 1976, the School of Medicine received its 64 pioneer students with seven faculty members. The SLU Hospital Sacred Heart was soon opened a year later to serve as a training hospital for SLU medicine students and to look after the medical needs of the city and nearby provinces.

Over the years, the school earned accolades for its meritorious performance in the licensure exams, with a “high” performance level (often garnering 1st or 2nd place) as cited by the Philippine Association of Board Examiners. It maintains a roster of highly qualified faculty members who are recognized in their respective medical specializations.

The School is a fertile ground for research activities, where the plan adheres to the mandates and programs of national health agencies or councils. Ever sensitive to local health conditions and quality of medical health care, the School has produced government recognized studies and programs on indigenous small scale miners, thyroid-related diseases, tuberculosis, among others.

As it makes every effort to be a social mobilizer, the School integrates societal issues, e.g., child abuse, bioethics, gender sensitivity, human rights, traditional and alternative medicine, into its curriculum. Early into their studies, students are trained in community inspection and diagnosis, health education research and primary care services through problem-based learning and programs such as immersion visits to mining villages, sewage treatment plants, and other underserved areas. A unified outreach program participated in by the school’s faculty, students, hospital staff, and volunteer medical professionals, is likewise organized regularly for the benefit of identified communities.

The school recognizes the importance of learning from other experts in the medical discipline. Thus, it works with other medical schools, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, and other entities in strengthening the school’s instruction, research capability, facilities, and human resource development. It has entered into agreements with institutions from the UAE and Europe in training students from these countries in the School and in the Hospital of the Sacred Heart.

But more than these achievements, the school takes pride in honing well-rounded Christian doctors who espouse holistic healing, who are passionate about their work as health care providers, who have a deep compassion for the needy, and who are highly competent in assuming these roles.

  • Master of Science in Medical Technology (MS MT)
  • Master in Public Health (MPH)

The school was officially inaugurated in 1967, when the College of Arts and Sciences – formerly the College of Liberal Arts founded in 1952 – was split into the Colleges of Natural Sciences and Human Sciences. Rev. Fr. Gerard Loque, CICM was at the helm as Dean of this School for more than 30 years, until his retirement in 1998. A plant hobbyist with extensive training in Zoology, Fr. Braeckman established and headed the Plant Propagation Laboratory (which also housed a miniature zoo at one time), and the Natural Sciences Museum to drum up interest and appreciation for the biological sciences among students.

The growing appeal and rise of enrolment in the various courses in the sciences prompted the University to build the Dr. Konrad Adenauer Science Center with a financial assistance from the Federal Republic of Germany. Formally launched in July 1968, this Center today still accommodates several of the University’s chemistry, clinical, biology, and medical laboratories, as well as the Regional Science Teaching Center / Regional Staff Development Center of the DOST. These instructional and research laboratories are equipped to provide the School’s budding scientists with the best there is in scientific and technological facilities. The School is recognized too for its award-winning research outputs, and for its sterling performance in board examinations for medical Technologists, Pharmacists, and Radiologic Technologists.

To further reinforce its contribution to the scientific community, the School put up the Natural Sciences Research Unit (NSRU) in 1999 – the first and only private research service laboratory of its nature in Northern Luzon. It offers an array of biochemical tests such as chromatography, phytochemical, soil, water, and titration analysis, as well as bio- and immuno-assays, among others for clients within or outside of the University. The NSRU has been instrumental in making research a central part of the school’s curriculum, i.e., research assignments of the different courses are aligned to the studies undertaken in the NSRU. This scheme ensures maximum use of the laboratory’s resources and facilities, and the building up of expertise of the faculty as research supervisors. This fully equipped laboratory has paved the way for opportune joint studies with other universities such as with the Benguet State University on the state of health and environment of Benguet municipalities identified to be heavy users of farmland pesticides, and with INHA University of Korea on the “Development of whitening agents from indigenous flora in South East Asian countries”. Results from the first study have been disseminated to concerned authorities as an aid in policy formulation and legislation. From the latter, extracts from 300 plants endemic to the Cordillera region were identified to have skin lightening properties. From the tests performed on their depigmentation potentials, 11 active plant ingredients are in line for patent approval in Korea as of this writing.

As part of a missionary university, the school in its long-running Community Involvement Program, has taken special interest in the welfare of the marginalized groups in the society, e.g., the farmers, women and children, and prisoners. The School’s regular outreach programs offer free medical services, clinical tests, as well as lectures on health and safety, and on environmental awareness and concern.

Although the school and its modern research facilities can take on studies wider in scope, it has remained focused on addressing local issues where it can make a direct and an immediate contribution. Indeed, even while riding the waves of a constantly changing society, the school’s research agenda has always been centered on those which are relevant to the health, environment, and biological resources of the Cordilleras. The understanding, appreciation, and expert knowledge it has developed on the local region’s biological or health needs and resources are its most significant contribution to the scientific world.

School of Nursing

Baccalaureate Courses

  • Associate in Health Science Education (AHSE)
  • Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN)

Post-Baccalaureate Courses

  • Doctor of Philosophy in Nursing
  • Master of Science in Nursing (MSN)
  • Major in Adult Health Nursing
  • Major in Community Health Nursing
  • Major in Mental Health & Psychiatric Nursing
  • Major in Maternal & Child Health Nursing
  • Major in Nursing Administration

More than three decades after its inauguration as a separate college in 1976, the School of Nursing remains zealous in its philosophy of training and producing only the most competent graduates. Undaunted by the mania that saw the proliferation of nursing schools nationwide in recent years (due, of course, to the rising demand for nurses abroad), acceptance and retention policy in the school has remained very consistent.

This strict adherence to high standards has considerably paid off for the university. SLU has maintained its status as a top performing school of nursing in the country, and it is accredited as one of the few Centers of Excellence / Development in Nursing Education in the Philippines.

Cognizant of the growing health needs of the Cordilleras, the School of Nursing established the Mobile Nursing Clinic (MNC) extension service in 1979. The primary aim of this pioneer program was to alleviate the state of health care system in depressed or neglected communities by sharing skills on how to manage their own health programs. An institution in itself, the multi-awarded MNC is now considered as the first and longest-running college-based extension program of the university.

In the face of rapid globalization, the promotion and advancement of community health development will always be a top priority of the school. The MNC now utilizes a collaborative approach to health development called the Community Organizing-Participatory Action Research (COPAR). Its objectives are, as follows: to pursue relevant researches, to mobilize multi-sectoral linkages, to extend training to other schools and concerned agencies, to widen the program’s scope, and to maximize community participation and involvement.

The school maintains national and international linkages which are vital to expanding skills and knowledge, enhancing the curriculum, bringing in resources, and promoting trans-cultural learning and appreciation among its faculty and students.

Heeding the call for expanding the Louisian brand of education, the school launched the SLU-Nursing Review Center in 2008 to accommodate nursing graduates from any school. The center guarantees enrollees increased chances of (if not ensure) passing the national licensure examination.

From its humble beginnings, the SLU School of Nursing has significantly progressed, in terms of students, faculty, facilities, and reach. The enduring emphasis on a socially-oriented education in the name of community service will however remain its best and foremost accomplishment.

The SLU School of Teacher Education (then known as the College of Education) was viewed by its founders as an indispensable partner in bringing to the Cordilleras strong intellectual and spiritual education. Education students were honed to further expand the transformative and missionary education that the CICM fathers have started in the country.

Similar to the structure of most colleges in the Philippines at that time, SLU initially offered two-year certificate courses in Elementary and Kindergarten teaching apart from the regular baccalaureate degree in Education. In the same year when the school produced its first five graduates (1955), the Graduate School for Master of Arts in Education was started. In time, the school’s bachelor degrees in Elementary and High School as well as its graduate programs offered specializations in various fields.

Preparing students to become skilled and dedicated teachers has always been one of the school’s guiding principles. The School’s commitment to quality education has earned for the school the recognition of being a Center of Excellence in Teacher Education. It is likewise distinguished as one of the top performing schools nationwide, in terms of results in the national licensure examinations for teachers.

With all its accomplishments, the school still believes that the nobility of the teaching profession lies not only on a display of competence but on the awareness of and responsiveness to the needs and priorities of the community. In the modern world, one of society’s self-inflicted illnesses is the segregation of some sectors due to emphasis on competitiveness. The school views the exclusion of disadvantaged groups from even the most basic rights such as education is a growing concern. In response, the school advocates Inclusive Education: a revolutionary educational philosophy which states that education aims to help everyone realize his potentials. The School therefore trains its faculty and teaches its students to embrace and value differences, to be proud of their heritage and identity, and to respect the dignity and capability of all learners.

The school presently works closely with the SLU Institute for Inclusive Education – the first of its kind in the Philippines – in training educators from diverse disciplines on the value of inclusive teaching and learning, as a condition for building an inclusive society.

Today and in the future, the school envisions itself as a formative training ground for inclusive and Christian professional teachers.

Laboratory Schools

Saint Louis University Laboratory Elementary School is located at Gen. Luna St., Baguio City. The elementary campus is just beside the college campus thus making some buildings of the former be used by the School of Teacher Education (Gonzaga Building). Fr. Ghisleen De Vos Building and Fr. William Brasseur Building are used by the grade school pupils.

Formerly Saint Louis University - Boys' High School, Saint Louis University Laboratory High School started out coed in 2003. Originally from the Gonzaga campus, it is now located in Navy Base. For the past years, the school adopted the basic concept of developing the personnel, studentry, administration, and the community. To have a more integrated and holistic approach to the program, the school population is guided with its watchwords: pray, play, study, serve and work together. From each of the school clubs, to the homeroom classes, to the teachers and non-teaching staff, all have formulated their own program of development along these guidelines.

The SLU-LHS has been blessed with zealous and energetic Principals who, in their unique ways, have helped in the attainment of the school's objectives and in the growth of the students and personnel.

Hospital

The Saint Louis University-Hospital of the Sacred Heart is located within the SLU Main campus. The construction of the SLU-HSH was realized with donations mainly from the De Rance Foundation of U.S.A. and the Provincial Board of West Flanders in Belgium which was subsequently approved by the CICM Board in Belgium after thorough studies.

SLU-HSH is licensed by the Department of Health’s Bureau of Health Facilities and Services and is accredited by the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation, Employees’ Compensation Commission and is a member in good standing of the Philippine Hospital Association and the Private Hospitals Association of the Philippines.

There are close to fifty (50) accredited HMOs’, Government and Private Corporations in the listing of the SLU-HSH for the medical needs of their members/staff either as out- or in-patients.

A center that both teaches and treats, and an institution that cures and nurtures, the SLU Hospital of the Sacred Heart is accredited for specialty training in Anesthesia, Internal Medicine, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Ophthalmology, Pathology, Pediatrics, Radiology and Surgery. as well as Internship Training in Medical / Radiologic Technology, Nursing, Pharmacy. Occupational/Physical / Respiratory Therapy and Caregiver.

Libraries

The SLU Library was founded simultaneously with the founding of SLU as a college in 1952. It started as a one-classroom library but later it expanded and occupied the lower western wing of the old college building, now known as the Gonzaga Building. It then had a collection of 12,000 volumes with a seating capacity of two hundred. The aims were to safeguard the necessary silence and atmosphere needed for research and profound study,and to make the collection grow to support the curriculum.

Today, the SLU Library has grown enormously into a magnificent, massive building - the Msgr. Charles Vath Library Building. Looming over the other buildings in the campus and spelling out the big hearts of the early CICM Fathers and Sisters who envisioned to give the people of the Cordilleras and Northern Luzon a good Catholic education, it now houses a collection of 100,000 volumes of print materials, 2,000 titles of non-print materials, 1,000 CDs, 100 units of computers. The once one - classroom library has branched out into 10 library sections, now known as the SLU Libraries with a seventeen -member staff to serve the present school population of 22,000 and outside researchers. Its aims have expanded according to the needs of a growing and getting complex university curricula. With the ongoing computerization and reorganization, the SLU Libraries are set to meet the challenges of library automation, the demands of its users, and the expectations of a world of advancing digitization.

Museum

The SLU Museum of Culture and Arts is an ethnographic museum. Its collections are generally cultural artifacts which come mainly from the Cordillera Region, i.e. from Benguet, Ifugao, Mountain Province, Kalinga, Apayao, and Abra. A few collections come from the Lowlands. A section of the museum contains Spanish religious relics. Classified as a University community museum that caters to the needs of the students in the university and visitors (local and foreign), the museum is one of the recognized museums in the Cordillera and in Northern Luzon.

The museum adopted the theme, “Unity in Cultural Diversity” as a fitting theme to represent the diversity of cultures in the region and the hope of contributing to subsequent development of the attitude of cultural sensitivity and tolerance among the students in particular and other visitors in general. Guided by the belief that a bridging between cultures becomes possible and meaningful only when the culture and traditions of a people are objectively appreciated and understood by others, the museum is true to its commitment of serving the student community, researchers, tourists, excursionists, and other university visitors.

Publications

The various publications aim to promote the institutional profile of SLU and its different colleges and offices among the faculty, employees, students and also to the general public by disseminating through three major publications relevant information and data about accomplished university-wide activities and events, major plans, community and outreach activities of the different colleges.

It is run by college students from various courses, and is under the supervision of the publication adviser from the SLU administration. The school paper releases broadsheet, Euro-tabloid, tabloid types of newspapers throughout the year. It also releases an annual magazine called Sapientia, a black-and-white themed magazine tackling current and relevant events. The publication also annually releases a literary folio called Kuwaderno.

There is no recorded date as to when the publication was first put up, but White & Blue's earliest known copy dated back since 1960.

History

In 1907, the CICM Missionaries arrived in the Philippines, mandated by the Vatican to Christianize the northern part of the country[4]. The missionaries settled in Baguio because of its proximity to both Manila and the mountain province of Benguet beyond the Cordillera mountain range, that was home to numerous indigenous tribes. In 1911, Rev. Fr. Séraphin Devesse, CICM, founded a one-room elementary school in Baguio for ten local boys, naming the school the Saint Louis School . In 1915, the St. Louis School expanded becoming a vocational and trade school. In 1915 the school opened a secondary branch. In 1952, the combined efforts of Msgr. William Brasseur and Rev. Fr. Rafael Desmedt founded Saint Louis College, then consisting of three departments: Education, Liberal Arts, Commerce and Secretarial[5]. In 1955, the graduate-level programs of Saint Louis College were granted recognition, but the real turning point came on 13 May 1963, when Saint Louis College was conferred University status by the Philippine Government, making Saint Louis University the first private university outside Manila. The school started with only 75 students with Gerard Decaestecker, CICM, as the first rector. Other courses and further developments soon followed under the guidance of the following Rectors/Presidents:

Fr. Jessie M. Hechanova, CICM, 2005-present

From the one-room Saint Louis School for ten boys in 1911, Saint Louis University has grown to a four campus University with more than thirty buildings catering to more than thirty thousand students.

University Facts

University Centennial and Founder

Saint Louis University in 2011 commemorates and celebrates her 100 years of historic mission of education in this part of the world. Thus, the upcoming SLU centennial celebration must allow every Louisian to pause for moments of reflection of remembrance. We begin our journey of grateful memory to the small beginnings of SLU with her self-effacing founder: Fr Séraphin Devesse, CICM.

True to the missionary virtue of humility (anonymity?), little is known of the circumstances surrounding the life of Fr. Devesse to whom Baguio could significantly trace her Catholic roots, the man who built the first Catholic church and the first Catholic mission school in Baguio. Yet, a deep sense of institutional memory, especially during the auspicious centenary of SLU, finally calls for the recognition of this pioneer missionary to whom Catholic Baguio is silently grateful.

Fr. Devesse was born on 28 April 1883 in Belgium. He finished the classical humanities at the Minor Seminary and later, his Philosophy at the Seminary in Malines. He was admitted into the Novitiate on 6 September 1902, and four years later, on 14 October 1906, was ordained priest. Fr. Devesse or “Vessius” as he was also known to his companions, was a professor of languages and Sacred Scripture in the CICM seminary in Belgium. The following year after his ordination, Fr. Devesse, eager and enthusiastic at 24 years of age to bring evangelization to foreign lands, embarked on his first mission adventure: The Philippines.

On 2 November 1907 Fr. Devesse, together with his equally spirited eight CICM companions, arrived in the Philippines to start the first CICM mission in the country. Fr. Devesse was the youngest among the pioneer group of CICM missionaries to the Philippines. Upon the urgent request of Bishop D. Dougherty of Nueva Segovia, Frs Séraphin Devesse, Octave Vandewalle, and Henry Verbeeck were immediately dispatched to establish their mission in Baguio and La Trinidad. On 26 November 1907 the three missionaries arrived in Baguio to start out the work. In 1908 Fr. Devesse built in Baguio the first Catholic church, named the St Patrick church, along Session Road. From that small church later grew the Baguio Cathedral we know today. During those early years of missionary work in Baguio, the CICM Fathers were locally known as the “Missionary Priests of the Church of San Patricio,” since they were identified with St Patrick church that they built. Later on, they were commonly called the “Baguio Fathers,” or simply the “Belgian Fathers.”

Fr. Devesse became the first parish priest of St Patrick from 1911 till 1913. Within this period, he also established another church in Campo Filipino. From that other church soon emerged what is now the Saint Vincent Church along Naguilian Road.

In 1911, Fr. Devesse opened the first Catholic mission school using the sacristy of the church he put up along Session Road. “We built a little church and started a school,” summarizes one mission chronicle of the early Fathers’ account of Baguio, which was a testimony to Fr. Devesse’s monumental efforts.

Fr. Devesse zealously went about his parish duties in Baguio till he was succeeded in 1913 by Rev Fr Florimund Carlu, CICM, who came from his mission assignment in Tagudin, Ilocos Sur. Fr Carlu was one of the nine original CICM missionaries to the Philippines. He became the great pastor of Baguio. He was the revered and well-loved parish priest of the Baguio Cathedral till his death in 1950. Also in 1913, the arrived to manage the mission schools that Fr. Devesse built. The fruit of this collaboration between the CICM Fathers and the ICM Sisters was soon realized in the foundation and administration of Saint Louis Schools, from whose consolidation into a system of schools specifically after World War II gave rise to the institution of Saint Louis College in 1952 with an initial enrolment of 75 students. The establishment of Saint Louis College was all part of the reconstruction effort of the Philippine CICM under the visionary leadership of Bishop William Brasseur and the CICM Provincial Superior Fr Rafael Desmedt after the destruction wrought by the war. Later in 1963 Saint Louis College finally became Saint Louis University.

In 1913, Fr. Devesse was assigned to Bambang, Nueva Vizcaya, to work there as parish priest till 1924. There Fr. Devesse built a catholic school. He also had a short stint in Abra in 1918 upon the request of the Bishop of Vigan to help in the German mission area (SVD Missionaries) there which was then devoid of missionaries due to the outbreak of World War I.

Aside from attending to the spiritual and educational needs of the people of Bambang, Fr. Devesse distinguished himself as a man of dialogue and an ecumenical pastor where he succeeded in uniting as one people the Catholics, Aglipayans, and the Protestants notably during the turbulent years of religious and political upheavals in Philippine Church history. That earned for this humble priest the respect and love of the people of Bambang that they embraced him as one of their own, even honoring him as an “Imbambang.”

In 1924 Fr. Devesse became the parish priest of Santiago, Isabela. It was there that on 21 March 1945 the Japanese executed him, along with his assistant, Rev Fr Laurent Decaestecker, CICM. Laurent Decaestecker was the brother of the first Rector of Saint Louis College, Rev Fr Gerard Decaestecker, CICM, who held the position from 1952 to 1954. Years after WW II, French missionaries (La Salette Missionaries) to Santiago, Isabela generously pay tribute to Fr. Devesse’s heroism during the dark days of the war by remembering him to be “a great figure” whose name evokes an almost legendary person. (Presumably, that striking recollection of the La Salette Missionaries was for Fr. Devesse’s making a gallant stance before his Japanese executioners.)

Today, at hindsight, and ever grateful of God’s wonderful ways, we read how Fr. Devesse’s name curiously originates in Latin (de+esse) which means “from the beginning.” By providence his is truly a name that will serve as the foundation of an evolving reality, which we know today as Saint Louis University.

Through the intercession of Fr Devesse and of his pioneer companions to the Philippine mission in 1907, we pray that the good Lord, who has generously blessed and sustained the educational mission of SLU for the past 100 years, will continue to look kindly on SLU as she enters the threshold of another century.

University Colors, Seal and Motto

The colors of Saint Louis University are white and blue, the colors of the Blessed Virgin Mary. White symbolizes the earth and man. Blue signifies heaven and God. The big golden cross in the middle of the shield represents the Christian faith that the school aims to spread to all corners of the earth symbolized by the four small crosses.

Superimposed on the golden cross is the stylized lily that is associated with Saint Aloysius (Louis) de Gonzaga, the patron saint of the school. The big sword across the shield expresses vigilance and perseverance. The rugged mountains behind the sword signify the obstacles that SLU strives to surpass in bringing the light of truth in the darkness of ignorance.

The year 1911 shows the foundation date while the motto on the lower part of the seal, "Sapientia Aedificat", expresses the belief of its founders that "wisdom builds"

University Hymn

Let's all sing a song

Gay and cheerful,

Bursting forth from our young

And joyous hearts.

For our life is so bright

For we study right


We choose a smile for our part

Here we are, students of Saint Louis,

That is why we are so proud,

We'll always stand in defense for it

For it makes us brave and fit.

Chorus

Training our body and mind

That in the school we find,

Bright future smiles on us

Let's be ready thus,

We'll deserve well of our land,

Go ever hand in hand

For God's and country's sake.

This is the pledge we make.

Congregatio Immaculati Cordis Mariae

Saint Louis University was founded by Fr. Séraphin Devesse, a priest of the order of the Congregatio Immaculati Cordis Mariee (CICM), in 1911. For over a hundred years, SLU has essentially been and nurtured and molded by the CICM.

SLU as a CICM educational institution of higher learning is certainly an extension of the CICM mission. SLU must strive to be a source of Catholic education that reveals the fullness of human dignity in the light of divine revelation.That is why, to cite the CICM Constitution: “Those engaged in education must never forget that they themselves must be motivated with a deep apostolic spirit to bring their mission to a good end.” SLU then strives to live out this missionary responsibility through the active integration of its core values of Christian living, academic excellence, creativity, and social involvement that certainly reflect the human aspiration of social well-being that underlies the CICM missionary objective.

In search, therefore, for the Louisian identity that needs to be affirmed more than ever in the frontiers of globalization, we recognize that the Louisian is essentially a missionary
