The University of the Philippines Los Baños is a public university located in the towns of Los Baños and Bay in the province of Laguna, some 64 kilometers southeast of Manila. It traces its roots to the UP College of Agriculture (UPCA), which was founded in 1909 by the American colonial government to promote agricultural education and research in the Philippines. American botanist Edwin Copeland served as its first dean. UPLB was formally established in 1972 following the union of UPCA with four other Los Baños and Diliman-based University of the Philippines (UP) units.
The University of San Jose–Recoletos, formerly known as Colegio de San Jose–Recoletos (CSJ-R), is a Catholic private university founded in 1947 in Cebu City, Philippines by the Order of Augustinian Recollects.
The university has three campuses, two of which are located in different areas of Metro Cebu – the main campus along Corner P. Lopez and Magallanes Sts. and the Basak Campus at Cebu South Road, Basak Pardo, Cebu City. Its third campus, the newly built Balamban Campus, is located in Arpili, a barangay in the Municipality of Balamban (still in the province of Cebu).
