CRC started out small and inconspicuous, but gradually expanded its educational activities. It was awarded university status in 1995, and although it has since been known as the University of Asia and the Pacific, the mission remains the same: the fullest development of everything that is human in the individual.

The Faculty

The UA&P faculty is composed of devoted and competent academicians and industry practitioners.

The Alumni
