History of Adamson University
Adamson University was founded in 1932 by the late Dr. George Lucas Adamson, together with his cousins, Alexander Adamson and George Athos Adamson. The initial efforts to guide the Adamson School of Industrial Chemistry were directed towards the developmental needs of the Philippines, notably in the areas of science and chemical technology. On February 5, 1941, the school was granted status then by the Department of Education.
On December 4, 1964, the University was turned over to the Vincentian Fathers of the Congregation of the Mission (CM) and was incorporated into the Adamson Ozanam Educational Institutions, Inc.
As a Catholic University, it has gained a meaningful Christian presence in the academic world and as such, is actively involved in the development of the people, especially the poor.
Today, Adamson University has attained universal recognition as one of the leading institutions of graduate Education, Law, Arts, Sciences, Engineering, Pharmacy, Architecture, Commerce, Teacher Education and for Secondary, Elementary and Pre-School Education.
Wherever Adamson Alumni are working, they render work that is stamped with diligence and professionalism, a testament to the balanced education and training that they got from their Alma Mater. Most of them went through the crucible of hardship that goes with earning an education through limited economic resources. Alumni homecomings echo with stories of schoolday struggles and post-graduation success. However, owing to their Vincentian orientation, they find it easy to share their blessings in pay-it-forward fashion.
