AUL now officially UST-Legazpi

Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) signed the Certificate of Amendment changing the name of Aquinas University of Legazpi (AUL) to University of Santo Tomas-Legazpi (UST-Legazpi) on September 12, 2017.

University Rector and President Fr. Ernesto Arceo, in a mobile correspondence, stated that the extent of the UST integration would focus on the strengthening of the university’s academic programs, faculty and instruction, community extension services, and research. Furthermore, competitive accreditation and excellent licensure examination performances are also important objectives of the university.

Despite the name change, UST-Legazpi will have its administrative and fiscal independence from its Manila counterpart, and the structure of the Board of Trustees will be retained.

In conclusion, Fr. Arceo shared that there is no difference between a Thomasian and a Legazpi Thomasian in terms of academic and moral formation and its core values – all of them are under a Dominican philosophy of education.
