On August 8, 1948, Dr. and Mrs. Fernando Bautista founded what was at first known as Baguio Technical and Commercial Institute. With the school's increasing population and outstanding performance as an educational institution, it was granted university status on August 7, 1969 and renamed University of Baguio. The University Charter was signed by then Secretary of Education, Dr. Onofre D. Corpuz in appropriate investiture rites attended by ranking officials of the Department of Education, City Officials, Heads/Representatives of 20 educational institutions in the USA and Great Britain, and Presidents of more than 60 Philippine colleges and universities. Dr. Fernando Bautista was installed as the first President of University of Baguio.

As a public servant, Fernando Bautista authored educational measures during his term as delegate of Baguio and Benguet to the 1971 Constitutional Convention.  In his lifetime, he tried to fulfill his passion of providing affordable education to the youth until his demise in 2002 at the age of 94.
