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.
Foundation College was founded on July 4, 1949, by Dr. Vicente G. Sinco. It is a non-stock, non-profit, non-sectarian educational institution that is accessible to all.
In 1963, even before having a university status, it became a member of the International Association of Universities based in Paris, France.
On January 28, 1969, recognizing the college’s sincerity of purpose, achievement, and performance, superior instructional facilities, and the quality of its graduates, the Department of Education granted the college a university charter.
For the past 74 years, remaining true to the vision of founding father Dr. Vicente Guzman Sinco, Foundation University has retained its status as a non-stock and non-profit private academic institution whose unceasing pursuit of holistic educational excellence has been the key in preparing itself and its students for the ever-evolving future.
