Higher Education


We are a leading institution of higher learning for women committed to the development of effective women leaders who are active agents of social change. We are one of the first schools nationwide to have been granted full autonomy by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED). CHED’s recognition of our programs is a strong manifestation of our commitment to program and institutional quality and excellence.

Throughout our history, we have maintained our tradition of progressivism, dynamism, and academic excellence. We are recognized by our Miriam identity and spirituality as we embody and empower our community with our core values of truth, justice, peace, and integrity of creation. This guiding spirit makes us distinct and unique and these characteristics will continuously sustain and enhance the institution into the 21st century.
