About Angeles University Foundation

"The region's FINEST, among the country's BEST"

Angeles University Foundation, a non-stock, non-profit educational institution, was established on  May 25, 1962 by Mr. Agustin P. Angeles,  Dr. Barbara Y. Angeles and family.  After only less  than nine years of successful operation, the  Institution was granted University status on April 16, 1971 by the Department of Education, Culture and Sports.

On December 4, 1975, the University was converted  into a non-stock, non-profit educational foundation -- a decision of the founding family motivated by the sincere desire to perpetuate the missionary commitment of providing  relevant and quality education to the Central Luzon region.  Concomitant with this decision , the Angeles couple and their children, namely,  Rosario, Lutgarda, Emmanuel, Antonio, Jesusa, Josefina and Lourdes executed a Deed of Donation of their shareholdings in favor of the foundation as starting fund which resulted to the relinquishment of their ownership and proprietary rights. AUF was incorporated under Republic  Act No. 6055, otherwise known as the Foundation Law, and is a tax-exempt institution approved by the Philippine government.  All donations and  bequests given to the AUF are tax deductible.

On February 14, 1978, AUF was converted into a Catholic University making it the first in Central  Luzon. Another historical event that took place on February 20, 1990 was the inauguration of the five-storey, 125-bed AUF Medical Center which now serves as the teaching, training and research hospital, the first ever in Central Luzon.

Since its conversion to an educational foundation, AUF has afforded to expand enormously through the generous support of its benefactors in the United States, Europe and Asia, through  assistance of the Angeles University Development Foundation (AUDF) based in  Arlington, Virginia.

Today, AUF has the highest percentage of faculty with graduate degrees in the region, and among the highest in the Philippines. These qualifications are the foundation for its vaunted quality instruction and research, as evidenced by:

  • Autonomous Status since 2003;
  • Institutional Quality Assurance Monitoring and Evaluation (IQUAME) certification from the Commission on Higher Education (CHED);
  • Accreditation by the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (PAASCU);
  • ISO 9001-2000 Certification by TUV-SUD;
  • Center of Excellence in Information Technology Education; and
  • Center of Development for Computer Engineering
Now on its 48th year of operation, AUF has a total of 63 academic programs supported by state-of-the-art equipment and facilities, aimed at addressing the growing needs of the global academic community.
