CORPORATE EXCELLENCE

Far Eastern University

Far Eastern University (FEU) has long been regarded as one of the top universities in the Philippines; it aims to be a university of choice in Asia.

Realizing the founder’s dream
Founded in 1928 by Dr. Nicanor Reyes, FEU is envisioned to be an institution that offers quality education that is affordable for middle- and working-class families. Upholding the founder’s mission, the university invests in upgrading its facilities to foster a school environment conducive for learning and consistently explores innovative student-centered teaching methods that promotes better learning outcomes.

FEU has since produced globally competitive graduates who possess industry-responsive skills and exhibit the core values of fortitude, excellence, and uprightness. Both as an institution and as a community, FEU has cultivated a culture of inclusivity and acceptance that students, faculty, alumni, and administrators take pride in. It also promotes sustainable and responsive research, extension services, and heritage and environmental stewardship toward national and global development among its stakeholders.

The culture of volunteerism is an integral part of the university. This is fully exercised through unified and collaborative efforts called “TAMBayanihan” among its genuine and dedicated volunteers called “TAMBayani.” The FEU Volunteerism Services Office upholds and inculcates this culture through different CSR programs focused on areas of education, culture, livelihood skills development, environment, and disaster emergency response and relief operations.

One of FEU’s flagship programs is the Save The Tamaraw, which calls on the whole FEU community to help in the conservation of the tamaraws, a highly endangered species that is endemic to Mindoro island in the Philippines.

Continued academic excellence
For School Year 2018-2019, student enrollment in the FEU Group of Schools was registered at 40,289, an 11.1% increase over the preceding year despite the ongoing K-12 transition period, which interrupted student flows to college starting in 2016.

The university further honed the schooling experience it offers and expanded the delivery of education services by offering senior high school programs in FEU High School, FEU Alabang, FEU Cavite, and FEU Diliman. The FEU Group of Schools also used this period as an opportunity to improve the academic credentials and training of the faculty, particularly in FEU Manila and FEU Tech. The faculty in FEU Manila were provided a semester-long training in digital literacy, effective communication, critical thinking to make them more effective as teachers of Gen-Z students.

FEU also strengthened its plethora of system-wide initiatives to respond to specific challenges confronting Philippine education, namely, how to (a) help the country maximize its demographic dividend and (b) prepare students for the fast approaching disruptive future. The first challenge is about providing quality education at a massive scale to make the Filipino workforce globally competitive, while the second is about equipping students with the skills, behaviors, and values that empower them to live in a world where change is the norm and work and life are constantly disrupted by new technologies.

Focus on being future-ready
FEU continues to strive for academic excellence, sharpening the value proposition of an FEU education, integrating technology to its curriculum, and expanding its physical plant.

FEU has acquired Roosevelt College, Inc., in 2016 as part of growing the FEU Group of Schools and as a strategy to be able to offer quality education at different price points, thereby allowing the group to serve the education needs of a wider market.

Most recently, FEU has entered into a joint venture with the Technological Institute of the Philippines to launch Edustria, a senior high school in Batangas. The new school aims to fulfill the promise of senior high—that students need not go to college to find work. The goal is to make the students employable after accomplishing Grade 12.
