The University of Asia and the Pacific is a private, not-for-profit institution of higher learning that offers some of the most outstanding academic programs in Asia. All programs of study at UA&P are grounded in liberal education, which prepares students for their specific specialization by giving them a well-rounded education that cultivates genuine intellectual discipline—a prerequisite to acquiring any specialized knowledge.

An intrinsic part of education in UA&P is mentoring, through which the University’s interdisciplinary offering of knowledge, skills, and values is reinforced through regular, confidential conversations between the student and his or her mentor.

The formation of UA&P students is facilitated by an environment conducive to learning, qualified and dedicated teachers, a superior faculty-to-student ratio, and well-maintained facilities.

Liberal Education

The liberal education program is the bedrock of university studies in UA&P. The University focuses on developing the whole person, as well as combines breadth of learning and professional specialization, in its educational programs. Our students go through a strong liberal education program in their first years in the University. Thereafter, they begin to take subjects in their chosen field of specialization. If they choose a five-year program and meet all its academic requirements, they may graduate with a master’s degree in five years.

As they take up these various areas of knowledge, the students are trained to look at ideas with a critical eye, an analytical mind, and ethical judgment, and to understand issues from differing points of view. And as the subjects are taught using a multidisciplinary approach, the students learn to make connections across disciplines and see the big picture while understanding the complexity of each part. The liberal arts program also trains students to communicate ideas clearly, precisely and persuasively in speech and in writing.

Our Identity

The University blazes new trails in a tradition of excellence, service, and whole-person education. Faithful to our Credo, we aspire to form “individuals who are professionally competent, creative and enterprising, zealous for the common good, and capable of making free, morally upright choices, and who can thus act as positive agents of change and service to society.”

While we are constantly looking toward the future, we never lose sight of who we are. Our directive is, and will always be, that of unity. With the UA&P motto, UNITAS, we remind ourselves of our desire to achieve unity in many aspects: unity within the university community, unity between faith and reason, and unity between religion and life. It reflects the commitment of everyone in UA&P toward the pursuit of wisdom, which necessarily entails a unity of life.


Unique to our University, our mentoring program—augmented by our deep appreciation for the liberal arts—nourishes the development of each of our students and brings the integration of knowledge, skills, and values down to the personal level. By treating students as individuals through focused, one-on-one sessions with qualified mentors, we put into practice our belief that higher education should be a singular, meaningful experience that develops the person in every aspect.

UA&P and Opus Dei

The spiritual formation in UA&P is entrusted to Opus Dei, a Personal Prelature of the Catholic Church. Opus Dei ensures the doctrinal and moral soundness of the other aspects of formation imparted in the University. Founded by St. Josemaría Escrivá in 1928, Opus Dei strives to spread the universal call to holiness and apostolate. The faithful of the prelature come from different parts of the world. St. Josemaria’s spiritual legacy underpins the University’s educational principles, which guide all policy and procedural decisions and actions.



University of Asia and the Pacific Foundation, Inc.

UA&P is a project of the University of Asia and the Pacific Foundation, Inc. (UA&PFI), in line with its broad research, training, and educational purposes.

UA&PFI is a non‐stock, non‐profit corporation whose primary purpose is that of establishing and operating colleges, schools, centers, etc., where activities may be undertaken in a manner that will significantly serve the integral formation of the human person according to the Christian spirit and ideals. These activities must aim to uplift the moral, cultural, and material level of the country and region in which the University operates.

UA&P endeavors to give its students a complete education, which includes the pursuit of Christian ideals and formation in Catholic doctrine and morals. To this end, the UA&PFI desires that all the activities of the University (teaching, research and publication, and extension) be imbued with the spirit and Christian ideals of Opus Dei as taught and lived by its Founder, Saint Josemaría Escrivá. In order to achieve this objective, the UA&PFI signed an agreement with the Prelature of the Holy Cross and Opus Dei which created permanent consultation mechanisms and established specific channels through which the spirit of Opus Dei can be transmitted to the academic community. Thus, the Office of the Vice Grand Chancellor (OVGC) was instituted to serve as a consultant for the objective mentioned above.

Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees runs the University of Asia and the Pacific Foundation, Inc., which operates the University.

The UA&PFI Board of Trustees governs the University by guiding and directing the Management Committee (ManCom) to align its strategic plans, decisions, and policies to the University’s educational philosophy.

The Board meets in plenary every quarter while its Executive Committee holds meetings in the intervening months. Its mandate is to manage the affairs, business, and property of the Foundation. The Executive Committee (ExCom), made up of the Chair, President, Vice Chair, Treasurer and two other Trustees, decides on matters raised during the regular quarterly meetings on behalf of the plenary Board as well as consultations from the ManCom which need urgent resolutions. The ExCom also studies ManCom proposals before a formal recommendation is elevated to the plenary Board.

It was formed to steer the University in the path set out for it. It makes sure that all plans, activities, and projects undertaken advance the mission, goals, and values of the University.

The ManCom is a collegial decision-making body made up of the President, Vice Presidents, and the University Secretary, and it meets in plenary session once every two weeks. It governs the University with the help of the different Operations Committees of each College, School, or hallmark center and the Managing Directors or unit heads of the different supporting units. The prerogatives of the ManCom extend to the implementation of the strategic directions for the University set by the Board of Trustees and to the decision-making necessary in running the educational institution, which is not reserved to the Board or to the Executive Committee.
