Welcome to Lyceum of the Philippines University!
As we find ourselves in this unprecedented time of learning, teaching and working, I wish to take a moment to convey my gratitude and appreciation to everyone in the LPU community.
First and foremost, to our faculty, academic heads and support staff for coming together and proactively making such dramatic transitions. Your support, cooperation and teamwork enable us to face the challenges of the times that many of us could not have imagined when ECQ was imposed last March.
To our students and your dear parents, thank you for the confidence you have placed on us. We recognize how difficult and disruptive the past five (5) months have been for you. That you have come back to continue or to start your program of studies in LPU despite these difficulties gives us the motivation, the strength and the inspiration to continue pursuing our Vision and Mission, to prepare you our dear students for the future, for God and for country.
The war against COVID-19 will one day be won and, years from now, when you and I look back at this once in a century pandemic, we will be proud that against all odds we kept our focus, we persevered and ultimately we emerged victorious.
Please stay safe, take care at maraming salamat!

President, Lyceum of the Philippines University
