Organizational Structure


Mission and Vision

The University of Perpetual Help System, having committed itself to service in the forefront of education and health care, came into being out of the unselfish effort and untiring commitment of its founder: Dr. Jose G. Tamayo and Dr. Josefina Laperal Tamayo. The desire to serve others was manifested at a very young age when Dr. Jose G. Tamayo, then a young boy dreamt of being a doctor. For him, it was the best way he that he could serve his fellowmen. But when that dream became a reality, he realized that his best was not good enough the services he rendered were so limited and only within the realm of his profession as a doctor.


Committed to provide users with comprehensive resources and services as tools for independent critical thinking and life-long learning.
