Most of CEU degree programs are accredited Levels II, III and IV, by the Philippine Association of Colleges and Universities Commission on Accreditation (PACUCOA) as certified by the Federation of Accrediting Agencies of the Philippines (FAAP).The Dentistry, Pharmacy, Biology, Business Administration, International Hospitality Management, International Tourism and Travel Management, Nursing, Nutrition and Dietetics, Optometry and Psychology Programs of the University are now ASEAN University Network (AUN) Quality Assurance certified.

To fully support research activities, the University has modernized its library services and upgraded them with electronic-based research tools and new information resource acquisitions. 


CEU was founded on June 3, 1907 as the “Centro  Escolar de Señoritas” by two visionaries, Librada Avelino and Carmen de Luna, who were inspired by the patriotic movement to nationalize schools. They were cognizant of a need for a center of learning for Filipino women focused on teaching ideal womanhood, intelligent citizenry and democratic leadership that would instill in them the tenets of science and virtue. Kindergarten, elementary, general secondary, music and home arts courses were the first programs of instruction included in the curriculum. 


The school was granted university status by the Philippine government in 1932 with Doña Librada as President. When she died in November 1934, her co-founder, Doña Carmen de Luna was elected as President by the Board of Directors. 


CEU has steadily grown as an institution under the leadership of noted educators who have contributed much to the development of their respective professions. Following the leadership of the two founders, the succeeding presidents were:


Dr. Pilar Hidalgo-Lim, an educator and civic leader;

Dr. Dionisio C. Tiongco, a renowned scholar and educator;

Dr. Lourdes T. Echauz, a distinguished philanthropist and educator; and

Dr. Rosita L. Navarro, a recognized educator and an advocate of the balance between globalization and Filipinization. 


The current President, Dr. Ma. Cristina D. Padolina, was a former Commissioner of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and Chancellor of the University of the Philippines Open University.

Baliuag University

1069 Gil Carlos St., Baliuag, Bulacan 3006

Baliuag University began as Baliuag Institute in 1925, a small high school with only 75 students.Baliuag Institute closed down during the Japanese occupation in 1941. It reopened two years later and went on to offer Junior Normal and Liberal Arts, both two-year courses, in 1946. In 1947, the government elevated the school's status from Institute to Junior College. Subsequent developments like campus improvements, and yearly growth of the student population paved the way to another milestone - Baliuag Junior College became Baliuag Colleges in 1968. In 2001, Baliuag Colleges was declared a university and granted a status of full autonomy by the Commission on Higher Education. As a result, it has become a self-regulated institution with most of its course offerings granted with Level III Course Accreditation Status. Such status gives the Baliuag University the freedom to offer new academic programs without the need for the approval of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) . This status speaks of CHED's confidence in Baliuag University's capability to sustain high-quality educational programs.

Today, Baliuag University offers elementary, high school, college and graduate programs. For its students' outstanding performance in board examinations, Baliuag University has repeatedly ranked by the Professional Regulation Commission among the top universities in nursing, library science, engineering, and education board examinations. Throughout history, Baliuag University has stayed true to its founding vision, mission, and guiding philosophy--all of which play crucial roles in making Baliuag University one of the most respected, most innovative, and leading academic institutions in the region.
