Lyceum of the Philippines University-Batangas (LPU-B), a private tertiary educational institution located in Region IV-A was established in 1966 by the late Senator, Dr. Sotero H. Laurel adopting the educational philosophy of his father, former President of the Philippines-Jose P. Laurel. This institution formally received its University status from the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) in 2008. Consequently, it also obtained the Autonomous status in 2009 and 2016, the highest recognition being awarded to few tertiary educational institutions in the country by CHED.
Through the efforts of the entire LPU-B Family, the university has been given the Global Performance Excellence Award – World Class Award (Highest) in Education Category by the Asia Pacific Quality Organization in 2017 and in 2016, it was recognized as the Philippines’ First Private Non-Sectarian QS Stars Rated University. LPU also received the Philippine Quality Award (PQA) as Recognition for its Proficiency in Quality Management in 2015 after obtaining the PQA Recognition for Commitment to Quality Management in 2012 – the fourth school in the Philippines to receive this distinction and the first in Region IV.
In 2012, CHED formally awarded LPU Batangas the Center of Excellence (COE) for HRM and Center of Development (COD) for Tourism and in 2016, it has been granted COE for both HRM and Tourism programs and for Medical Laboratory Science; and COD for Business Administration and Information Technology programs. Likewise, the international accreditation of HRM and Tourism programs to International Center of Excellence for Tourism and Hospitality Education (THE-ICE) and the recent International Centre of Excellence accreditation by the Asia Pacific Institute for Events Management (APIEM) have been awarded – again, another first in the Philippines.
In addition, its Information Technology program is the first in the Region to be accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), an international accrediting body.
LPU-B has made great strides in the last few years. In 2015, it was also awarded as the first university in Asia to be Gold - accredited by the international standards for human resource training and development, the Investors in People (IiP) and this year 2017, the university also received the IiP Gold (Generation 6) Accreditation, still the first university in Asia to receive the award based on the new standard.
Its Quality Management System has been certified by Det Norske Veritas (DNV) to ISO 9001:2008 Standard since 2006 and has migrated and certified to the latest ISO 9001:2015 Standard this year. Also, the university has been granted the Institutional Accreditation Status by the Philippine Association of Colleges and Universities Commission on Accreditation (PACUCOA) for having more than 75% of its program offerings accredited.
The present thrust of LPU-B towards an outcomes-based education has triggered major changes and innovations in the teaching and learning processes to ensure that instruction will bring about the desired outcomes stipulated in the course syllabi. The results of the various processes are the primary indicators which LPU-B use in defining its organizational excellence.
