A Message from the Vice President for the Loyola Schools
I warmly welcome you to the Ateneo de Manila University Loyola Schools!
Let me invite you to a virtual tour of the Loyola Schools composed of the School of Humanities, the John Gokongwei School of Government, the School of Science and Engineering, and the School of Social Sciences. This website features many aspects of our academic landscape, firstly, our undergraduate and graduate programs which are some of the finest not only in this country but in other parts of Asia as well. With a strong liberal arts foundation, our programs offer unique opportunities for interdisciplinary learning and practice and prepare our students more steeply for engaging the greater society and the world of work.
Get to know our vibrant academic community where reflective and imaginative thinking translates into depth of insight and artistic creation, where business acumen and social entrepreneurship find harmonious expression in award-winning projects, where scientific curiosity and mathematical intelligence pave the way towards exciting new knowledge, where critical investigation of social issues leads to greater awareness of what it means to be persons for others. Such features mark some aspects of character formation which is at the core of Ateneo education. In the Loyola Schools, faculty, students, and alumni equally aim for the greater good, the magis. This website offers news and update on their achievements and on our innovative approaches to student formation.
The Ateneo de Manila has produced heroes, leaders, experts, movers, creative thinkers, innovators, and pioneers since 1859. It continues its commitment to a tradition of excellence and service, now redefined in the context of global competitiveness, Filipino and Asian perspectives, and transformative leadership.
Join us as we celebrate excellence with wisdom, deepen spirituality with hope, and build the nation with greater tenacity — the Ateneo way.
Maria Luz C. Vilches, Ph.D.
Vice President for the Loyola Schools
