Meet 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.
