All of the country's top universities would boast of offering quality education. Silliman is no different. But while it joins the ranks of prestigious Philippine universities, it is humbled by a gift of a location that bespeaks of the natural environment's complement to academic learning - one feature that sets Silliman apart from the rest. Dotted with over 300 acacia trees, the Silliman campus is uniquely embraced in between views of the Cuernos de Negros… [+] mountains in its background and the Visayan sea at its frontage. The 62-hectare campus offers patches of greens on where personal relationships are nurtured, spiritual nourishment facilitated, and the concept of quality student life redefined. Silliman University is a melting pot of cultures and religions. Of its overall population of more than 9,000, over 300 are international students from 23 different countries. Its affiliation with the United Church of Christ in the Philippines as a Protestant university has never been a hindrance to the exercise of religious freedom. Majority of Silliman students are Roman Catholics and a good number are Muslims from Mindanao. The university is located in the charming city of Dumaguete, dubbed the 'City of Gentle People,' an hour away by plane from Manila and four hours away by boat from Cebu. Silliman thrives in a city where the strip of restaurants offering good food along the boulevard and where everything a student needs is just a stone's throw away. While offering the coveted 'retirement getaway' environment, the city is not left behind by progress. You can find infrastructure developments and businesses sprouting in support of the city's "University Town" concept. Campus life revolves around the motto Via, Veritas, Vita (of Christ being the Way, the Truth, the Life). It is Silliman's mission to develop the whole person within the Christian context and in a sound environment. Students are expected to put their education to work in service to others - another mark that distinguishes Silliman from other institutions of higher learning. It is also the conducive residential campus life that sets Silliman University apart from the other leading universities in the Philippines. The 12 regular and cooperative dormitories provide a home away from home for Silliman students who come from outside Dumaguete. In the dormitories, students belong to a family, a part of the bigger Silliman community. Corollary to this sense of community is the "Silliman Spirit" - an atmosphere of personal closeness, warmth, friendship and concern. Institutional Distinctions Silliman is one of select higher education institutions in the country granted autonomous status by the Commission on Higher Education. The same government agency has also designated Silliman as a Center of Excellence in Nursing Education and Teacher Education and a Center of Development in Biology, Information Technology Education and Accountancy. With support from the United States Agency for International Development, Silliman is a Center of Excellence in Coastal Resource Management. Its community-based coastal resource management program has inspired the recognition of Apo Island off the town of Dauin as one of the best diving spots in the world. Just like other top universities, Silliman's academic programs undergo regular evaluation by any of three accrediting agencies: Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities, Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities-Accrediting Agency, Inc., and the Association of Theological Education in Southeast Asia. It maintains links on collaborative research and faculty and student exchange with universities in the United States and Asia, on top of strong affiliations with the United Board for Christian Higher Education in Asia (UBCHEA) and international development organizations. Its longest running student exchange programs are with three Japanese universities: International Christian University, Ferris University and Shikoku Gakuin University.
BACKGROUND AMA Education System (AMAES) is the largest educational network in Asia and a member of the AMA Group of Companies. It is the company that manages and operates the following schools in the Philippines: AMA University AMA Colleges ABE International Business College (ABE) ACLC College AMA Computer Learning Center (ACLC) St. Augustine School of Nursing (SASN) Delta Air International Aviation Academy (DAIAA) Southern… [+] Luzon College Sta. Veronica College AMA Basic Education (formerly St. Augustine International School) AMA School of Medicine (AMASOM) AMA COLLEGE AND AMA UNIVERSITY In 1980, Ambassador Amable R. Aguiluz V, also known as the Father of Computer Education in the Philippines, saw the demand for fully trained computer professionals; however, during that time, no institution in the Philippines offered professional computer education. Knowing the impact of technology in the industry and how it will drive progress, Ambassador Aguiluz responded to the demand and decided to put up a school that will offer computer education; hence, AMA Institute of Computer Studies was founded and eventually led to the establishment of AMA Computer College, which was the first to offer courses in Computer Science and Computer Engineering. Aside from being the first to offer IT courses in the Philippines, AMA College was also the first to: Offer E-learning Provide 1 is to 1 student-to-computer ratio Offer Mechatronics Receive ISO 9001 Certification among all the schools in the Philippines Become a Microsoft Premiere Education Partner Become an exclusive training partner of Avaya Branch out to key cities and municipalities in the Philippines Develop a University town in the Philippines comparable to Harvard, MIT and other similar institutions As time goes, AMA College continued to improve and even broadened its scope by offering courses related to business and finance, arts and sciences and engineering, which led to its elevation to AMA University, following the conferment of university status by the Philippine government's Commission on Higher Education (CHED) on August 20, 2002. Today, aside from its main campus (AMA University) located in Project 8, Quezon City, there are 41 AMA Colleges located in different parts of the country that offers bachelor’s degree, tech voc, short courses and post graduate degree programs. AMA EDUCATION SYSTEM A few years after AMA College was founded, Ambassador Aguiluz decided to start a new endeavour by setting up new schools that will specialize in specific fields such as business, technical IT skills, healthcare and hospitality. It was eventually realized when he established AMA Computer Learning Center, ACLC College, ABE International Business College and St. Augustine School of Nursing. In order to efficiently manage AMA College and its sister schools, AMA Educational Systems Holdings, Inc. was established, which is now the company that manages the education business of AMA Group of Companies. NEW MEMBERS OF AMA EDUCATION SYSTEM Aligned to its reputation of being the largest educational network in Asia, AMAES recently acquired the following schools in order to strengthen the organization’s reputation and fulfill its goal of providing quality education for all: Delta Air International Aviation Academy Southern Luzon College Sta. Veronica College Norwegian Maritime Academy INTERNATIONAL OPERATIONS AMAES continues to expand its reach and increase its global footprint by setting up schools not only in the Philippines, but also in other countries. Here are the schools under AMAES that are already operating in other countries to date: AMA International University Bahrain AMA International Training Institute Bahrain AMA International Training Institute Oman ACLC Macau ACLC Hong Kong Al Fawz International School
