Top Management Team


On 2014 September 18, another milestone in the administration of the University took an interesting turn with the coming in of a management eagle. Pursuant to the specification of Sec. 10 of the Republic Act No. 4196, Dr. Ma. Leonora V. de Jesus, former head of the Presidential Management Staff in Malacanang Palace, was elected by the Board of Regents from among themselves. She brings with her a solid track record and an impressive portfolio of credentials in various fields.

On her side as Executive Vice President is another academician from the Dela Salle University, Dr. Nelson J. Celis, who is also a professional practicioner. Together, their tandem makes an incomparable duo out to provide a fresh outlook to the governance model of the University.

Serving as University and Board Secretary is Atty. Rufino V. Abuda, a law practitioner and a homegrown alumnus who concurrently serves as the acting vice president for legal affairs

Vice presidents are pivotal in their roles in providing institutional support, as follows:

Likewise providing cutting-edge support to the President are her consultants who were invited from the private sector.
