ST. PAUL UNIVERSITY DUMAGUETE - 110th
The university traces its origins to the coming of the Sisters of
St. Paul of Chartres (SPC) in the Philippines. The congregation to
which the sisters belonged was founded in Chartres, France in 1868.
On October 29, 1904, the said
sisters who just came from a trip in Vietnam, established the first
St. Paul's school in the Philippines in Dumaguete, Negros Oriental,
in response to a call made by the Jaro Bishop Frederick Zadok Rooker.
The seven sisters were Mother Marthe de St. Paul, Superior, Sr.
Marie Louise du Sacre Coeur, Sr. Ange Marie, Sr. Anne de la Croix,
Sr. Charles de Genes, Sr. Catherine, and Sr. Josephine. The
institution they established initially offered elementary education.
High school started to be offered in 1920, until the institution
offered college degrees years later. For many years, the institution
operated as St. Paul College of Dumaguete. In 2004, the year of its
centennial celebration, the college was granted university status
becoming one of the four universities in Dumaguete.
