OUR HOMEGROWN HERO
Honoring our Founding Father, Dr. Jaime Hernandez.
“Realizing that Bicol Region needed an educational institution which will provide an opportunity for higher learning at relatively cheaper cost and with a quality equal if not better than those in the greater Manila, considered the center of learning, I considered it a rare challenge to be of service to the region by organizing a school that will meet those needs. By doing so, my co-organizers and I believed that we were contributing to the social, political, economic and cultural upliftment of the region.”
Dr. Jaime Hernandez
UNC is the first university in Southern Luzon, founded in 1948 by Dr. Jaime Hernandez, an exceptional Bicolano visionary, truly in a class of his own. With the whole University community celebrating the journey of UNC, etched in its heart and history is the indelible name of its illustrious forerunner, founder and first president, Dr. Jaime Hernandez Sr. UNC President, Dr. Fay Lea Patria M. Lauraya takes pride in the foundation laboriously laid by those who came before. Embracing the University’s 73 glorious years and counting, she marvels at the many cornerstones put in place by UNC’s Founding Father - Dr. Jaime Hernandez, which we can build upon to leap from milestone to milestone. Humbled by those who blazed the trail, she recounts the story of the University with gratitude to her outstanding predecessors, the second and third president - Dr. Dolores H. Sison - our Founder’s daughter, and Mr. Alfredo I. Ayala, MBA, respectively.
