The Founder

“We want to educate men and women whose only passport is intellectual competence; whose pursuit is excellence of mind, body and character; and whose quest is for freedom and truth.”   -Dr. Vicente G. Sinco

Founded by Dr. Vicente G. Sinco, Foundation University opened its doors at the dawn of a new era of the Philippines, a country that emerged at the end of World War II to become Asia’s first democracy. From the beginning, the university has been a non-profit, non-sectarian institution, accessible to all.

Dr. Vicente G. Sinco was born in Negros Oriental of modest means, and rose to become an influential figure who helped to write the Philippine Constitution. He was a trusted adviser to several Philippine Presidents, and launched our country’s involvement in world affairs as the representative of the Philippines, signing the United Nations Charter in 1945. He was the Dean of Law at the University of the Philippines and served as that institution’s president from 1958-1962.

The History

Foundation University opened its doors at the dawn of a new era for the Philippines, a country that emerged at the end of World War II to become Asia’s first democracy. From the beginning, the university has been a non-profit, non-sectarian institution, accessible to all.

For Foundation University, he envisioned a school that afforded anyone with ability and determination the opportunity for a college education, regardless of wealth or social position. He dreamed of a permanent center for teaching and learning that would help the Philippines assume its place among free nations.
