UP Visayas

UP Visayas (UPV) operates three campuses in Iloilo, Miagao and Tacloban. As the country’s acknowledged leader in marine science education and research, fisheries and aquaculture, UPV conducts studies which are widely published, recognized and featured in various local and international fora and journals. Providing support for these endeavors are its research stations—Brackishwater Aquaculture Center, Freshwater Aquaculture Station, Batan Mariculture Station and Marine Biological Station.

Like UPD and UPLB, UPV also has the NIMBB which contributes to the attainment of the Philippine government’s development goals. UPV is also the base agency of the Western Visayas Agriculture and Resources Research and Development Consortium, an organization that brings together experts who optimize resources for research and development in Region VI.

UPV also offers strong regional studies programs on the preservation and enrichment of the Visayan cultural heritage. Its excellence in the areas of management, arts and sciences is evidenced by faculty members and students who win national and international awards and graduates who top licensure examinations.

Because of its wide reach in the Visayas, UPV is able to institutionalize and maintain regional studies programs, gender advocacy programs and environment information systems. It has three regional studies centers: the Center for West Visayan Studies, Central Visayas Studies Center and Leyte-Samar Heritage Center. These centers are tasked with identifying, documenting, studying, preserving and promoting local history and culture.
