Soaring High and Leaving Footprints in Pursuit of a Legend in Quality Higher Education


Acaring and leading-edge University that is committed to develop and produce globally competitive professionals, dynamic and principled leaders, effective managers, and socially responsible citizens.

Thus declares the vision statement of the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila (PLM), a commitment of the first city-funded local university in the country for 39 productive years. A covenant with the people of Manila, under the leadership of City Mayor Jose L. Atienza Jr., as its benefactors to provide high quality college education to financially disadvantaged but intellectually deserving of Manila's youth. A passion for academic excellence as PLM grows from strength to strength.

We are very proud of our track record in licensure examinations, having been ranked among top schools in the country today based on a CHED four-year study of colleges and universities fielding candidates for PRC board examinations, PLM president Benjamin G. Tayabas claims.

Himself a TOSP awardee in 1965 and the recipient of the Philippines Jaycee Senate's The Outstanding Filipino (TOFIL) award in the field of education, Dr. Tayabas envisions more and more of our students and faculty members to receive outstanding citations and distinguished awards as proof of the star quality of scholarship at the Pamantasan.

Two-time PLM President Tayabas defines the new focus of the city university simply an excellent university to a truly outstanding Pamantasan in support of the city government program of Buhayin ang Maynila of Mayor Lito Atienza. The university enjoys the full support of the present leadership of the city government.

At PLM, we will continue to stay on top and stay in front as we mobilize the resources of the university to support the programs and services of the city government as our way of demonstrating our gratitude to the people of Manila who pay for the education of Pamantasan students, Dr. Tayabas says.

This year's 39th Foundation Day celebration will usher in the year-long series of activities and programs.
