  • The Central Philippine University, simply referred to as Central or CPU, is a private research university in Iloilo City, Philippines. Established in 1905 through a grant given by the American business magnate, industrialist and philanthropist John D. Rockefeller under the auspices of the American Baptist Foreign Mission Society, it is the first Baptist founded and second American university in the Philippines and Asia (after Silliman University (1901) in Dumaguete).It initially consisted of three separate schools: the Jaro Industrial School for boys and the Bible School that trains Christian ministers and workers which both established by the American missionary William Orison Valentine, and the Baptist Missionary Training School for training of women religious workers and missionaries. In 1913, women began to be admitted to the school for boys, and in 1920 the school started offering high school education. The school for boys became a junior college and started offering college degrees in 1923 which includes its merger with the Bible School that became its organic unit as its theology department, and it changed its name to Central Philippine College. In 1936 the junior college became a senior college and two years after it in 1938, the Baptist Missionary Training School for women merged with the theology department of the college. In 1953, the college attained university status. CPU–Iloilo Mission Hospital, the university's hospital which was established in 1901 by the Presbyterian Americans, is the first American and Protestant founded hospital in the Philippines which predates the founding of CPU by four years. Central pioneered nursing education in the Philippines, when Presbyterian American missionaries established the Union Mission Hospital Training School for Nurses in 1906, the present day Central Philippine University College of Nursing. In the same year, the CPU Republic (Central Philippine University Republic), the university's official student governing body was organized, making it as the first established student governing body in South East Asia. Central was also the first institution to pioneer the work-study program in the country that was later patterned and followed by other institutions. The university is affiliated with the Convention of Philippine Baptist Churches and is fraternally tied with the International Ministries of the American Baptist Churches, known before as the American Baptist Foreign Mission Society, but is independent in governance and non-sectarian. CPU consists of eighteen schools and colleges that provides instruction in basic education all the way up to the post-graduate levels. In the undergraduate and graduate levels, its disciplines include accountancy, agriculture, arts and sciences, business, computer studies, education, engineering, hospitality management, law, mass communication, medical laboratory science, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, lifestyle and fitness, real estate management, rehabilitative science, tourism, and theology. The Commission on Higher Education (CHED Philippines) has granted the university a full autonomous status. It is also the same government agency that awarded Central as Centers of Excellence in Business Administration and Agriculture and Centers of Development in Chemical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Electronics Engineering and Teacher Education. The Department of Science and Technology (Philippines) has designated the university's College of Engineering both as (DOST) Department of Science and Technology School and Center for Civil Engineering Education for Western Visayas region. Central is a registered National Landmark by the National Historical Commission of the Philippines and a Philippine Registered Cultural Property by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts. The university has been designated as the Regional Art Center (or Kaisa sa Sining Regional Art Center) by the Cultural Center of the Philippines. It has also been certified as one of the few ISO certified educational institutions in the Philippines by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The Board of International Ministries of the American Baptist Churches likewise on the other hand, has awarded Central a School of Excellence award. International collaborations and linkages with foreign institutions has earmarked CPU to offer undergraduate, graduate and doctorate overseas programs in Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese universities. A fine result of it include when the university opened an overseas academic programs jointly with the Thai Nguyen University (TNU) and Thai Nguyen University of Economics and Business Administration (TUEBA) both in Vietnam. CPU alumni and associated people have been recognized in the wide range of fields. Some of them became pioneer in their distinctions. It include National Artists of the Philippines, laureates of Ramon Magsaysay Award (Asian equivalent of Nobel Prize) and Rolex Award, Senators, Presidential cabinet members, United Nations Consul General, Associate and Chief Justices of the Court of Appeals of the Philippines and Supreme Court of the Philippines, first female Generals in the Armed Forces of the Philippines and Philippine Army, public servants, congressmen (legislators), and notable business tycoons.
