History

The Bataan Peninsula State University was established by virtue of Republic Act 9403, which was signed into law on 22nd of March 2007. It is a conglomeration of fine leading higher education institutions in Bataan seeking to contribute to the national and regional development through providing excellent quality of services in instruction, research, production and extension.

Guided by one Vision of becoming a university of excellence acknowledged not only in the country but also in the Asia-Pacific Region, BPSU shall continue to gear toward the realization of its mission of providing quality and relevant education in order to contribute to the national and regional development.

Before the conversion, BPSU used to have three campuses; two are located in the City of Balanga while the third is situated in Orani. The passage of RA 9403 resulted to the expansion of BPSU's campuses as the said Act duly integrated the Bataan Sate College in Dinalupihan and its satellite campus in Abucay. The five campuses of the university have very humble beginnings and yet they all emerged with glorious histories to be proud of. More empowerment is expected to be bestowed to each campus as their strengths shall be utilized for the success of the 111 programs and other services of the university.

Contributing to national development has always been the topmost priority of the university therefore BPSU relentlessly keeps itself updated on the recent trends to be responsive to the present and future demands of the community. At present university has three programs granted with Level 1 Accreditation from AACCUP. Fifty-six (56) programs are scheduled for accreditation from 2008 to 2012. Moreover, the university continues to equip itself with faculty and employees who have remarkable skills and knowledge in order to uphold academic excellence and maintain its capacity of producing quality graduates. At present, 6 percent of its faculty have Doctorate degrees and 31 percent have master's degrees. The rest are still working on their post-baccalaureate studies.

It is not surprising that the enrollment continues to increase over the years as the university has proven its capability to match and even to surpass the performance of other reputable universities in the country in various competitions and also in the licensure exams. Other than this, low tuition fee rates and a pollution-free and safe environment further encourage the Bataeños and those from other nearby provinces to patronize BPSU.

For BPSU, a life without challenges to conquer would be futile as the university always stretches the limet ot adapt to the changes and to turn trials into opportunities. Even cuts in the budget will not impede BPSU from attaining its goals. Aside from relying on its several IGPs to augment the budget and sustain its programs, the university continues to strengthen and to establish partnerships with local and international agencies that are more than willing to work side by side BPSU as it continues its journey towards a more dignified furture.

Organization

On February 6, 1998, the Bataan Polytechnic State College was born. On this date, former President Fidel V. Ramos signed into law Republic Act No. 8562, an Act Converting the Medina Lacson de Leon National School of Arts and Trades (MLLNSAT) in the Municipality of Balanga, Province of Bataan into a Chartered State College, to be known as the Bataan Polytechnic State College, integrating therewith the Bataan Community Colleges in the Municipality of Balanga, Province of Bataan and appropriating funds thereof.

From her humble beginnings as a vocational center, BPSC has strived to reach greater levels of progress and is now a recognized institution that sends out engineers, teachers, nurses, and other able professionals in various disciplines. It is branded as the youngest state college in the region. BPSC is able to do this by being responsive to the ever-changing realities of the needs of the business and industrial sector.

Now, the only way for BPSC is up. The college is currently preparing itself for its conversion into a university. Necessary steps are currently being undertaken and conceptualized by all sectors of the college.

One divine purpose … fueled by a glorious and proud past… empowered by the possibilities that lie within herself. All these will propel BPSC… straight on into a glorious future.

Main Campus

Popularly known as the Bataan National School of Arts and Trades or BNSAT (bansat) to many of the Bataeños, the school was established in 1953 by virtue of Republic Act No. 903 sponsored by then Congresswoman Medina Lacson De Leon. Initially, the school was mandated to offer junior college and secondary levels. From then on, it has served as feeders of high caliber technicians and skilled workers not only in the local employment market but competing in the international labor market as well.

BNSAT has made a name in the field of industrial education, industrial technology and technical-vocational education; hence, it has been a recipient not only of local grants but foreign grants as well. Besides the Asian Development Bank (ADB) funded Technical Vocational Education Project (TVEP) in the early ‘80s, the school was again selected to be a recipient of the Philippine Australia Technical Vocational Education Project (PATVEP) in July 1989. As a PATVEP-supported institution until 1995, BNSAT instructors were sent to Australia for upgrading. Shop rooms were refurbished and equipped with machines and other instructional materials vital for the students’ acquisition of needed industrial skills. Needless to say, PATVEP widened the role of BNSAT as training center in the region.

In 1995, Educational Management as a master’s course was offered. Former superintendent Dr. Violeta G. Tolentino’s will to promote professional development among the local teaching force pushed her to work intensively. Fifty-two enrollees from schools in Bataan became its pioneer batch. The program was further strengthened after it came in consortium with Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila and Bulacan State University.

All these efforts were rewarded on February 26, 1998, as the Bataan Polytechnic State College was born.

Balanga Campus

The Bataan Community College (BCC) was established on May 29, 1970 by the Provincial Board of Bataan through Resolution No.131. Under such structure, the BCC was governed by a charter headed by the Provincial Governor as Chairman of the Board of Trustees. After seeking recognition from the Department of Education Culture and Sports, headed by then Secretary of Education, Dr. Juan Manuel, on June 13, 1970, the college opened its doors to the public with 137 enrollees.

From two-year courses such as junior secretarial, midwifery and four-year BSBA (management) course in 1971, the college started to offer baccalaureate programs in the field of education and accountancy in 1986. As early as 1984, the Board of Trustees renamed the school Bataan Colleges (BC), giving it more latitude in offering ladder-type courses.

In 1991, BC opened its doors to enrollees in Nursing. After four years, the college has made a name in this field with a 91.55 % passing rate in the licensure examination of nurses - 50 out of 56 who took the examination successfully hurdled it. The midwifery department cannot be outdone for it has consistently performed impressively in licensure examinations not only by getting a passing rate much higher than the national percentage, but also by producing topnotchers.

It amazes one to realize how much growth Bataan Colleges has attained in the 25 years it has existed. The first enrolment of 100 has now multiplied into more than 2,000 students, coming not only from all over the province of Bataan, but also from other provinces. From the two-year secretarial and midwifery courses, the college is already offering degree courses in management, accountancy, education, nursing, psychology and a two-year associate in computer science.

On February 26, 1998, Bataan Colleges merged with the Bataan national School of Arts and Trades, and from then on became Bataan Polytechnic State College.

For now, the Bataan Peninsula State University Balanga Campus have four colleges that comprises the whole campus. This are the College of Nursing and Midwifery(CNM, College of Business and Accountancy(CBA), College of Education(CoEd) and College of Social and Behavioral Sciences(CSBS).

It consists of different student organizations such as the highest governing body in the university the Campus Student Council (CSC). The recent Campus Student Council are John Dean Regondola and Jan Oliver de Leon, president and Vice President respectedly. The Councilors are Maria Ursula Paula Mae Banzon, Mark Paulo Holgado, Mike Gullier Chua, Maria Cristine Karelle Cordero, Cherry Anne Reyes, Timothy Tuason and Kevin Garote. Other organization are Teatro Peninsulares, BZ Legs, The Defender, BPSU Chamber Chorale, and different societies in the different colleges.

Orani Campus

The Bataan National Polytechnic School or BNPS—formerly Bataan National School for Filipino Craftsmen—was established in 1965. Bachelor of Science in Industrial Education was first offered with 56 enrollees, aside from its two-year technical courses and the regular secondary course.

As the years progressed, BNPS expanded its curriculum in line with its commitment to cater quality education pursuant to Republic Acts 7782 and 8292. Due to its purpose of providing community-based education, enrollment multiplied. It executed relevant activities, programs and projects geared towards the attainment of its mission and objectives. In 1998, it became a CHED-supervised institution.

More than a year later, on October 29, 1999, BNPS was integrated to BPSC, pursuant to the pertinent provisions of Republic Act 8292 and became BPSC’s third campus, mandated to provide quality and affordable higher education...
