The UNIVERSITY OF THE PHILIPPINES LOS BAÑOS [UPLB] is one of the six constituent universities of the University of the Philippines System. It started out as a College of Agriculture in 1909; and became a full-fledged university in 1972. It has emerged as a leading academic institution in Southeast Asia.
UPLB is organized into nine colleges — Agriculture, Arts and Sciences, Development Communication, Economics and Management, Engineering and Agro-industrial Technology, Forestry and Natural Resources, Human Ecology, Public Affairs, and Veterinary Medicine — and two schools — Environmental Science and Management, and The Graduate School. Within these are degree-granting institutes, departments, programs, and divisions. In addition, a great deal of teaching, research and extension take place in interdisciplinary programs, laboratories, and centers whose works extend beyond traditional departmental boundaries. The UPLB Faculty and Administration consist of leaders in higher education, business and industry, science, engineering and other professions.
