the first university


“When I was writing my book Building a Nation: Private Education in the Philippines in 1997, the common wisdom was that UST was “the oldest university in Asia.” In the book, I argued that UST should not claim to be the oldest university in the Philippines (and therefore not in Asia). That distinction, I wrote then, belonged to the Universidad de San Ignacio, if we were to trace an institution’s origin to the time it was founded, not to the time it was named a university.” — Isagani Cruz, The First University
