Diversity and Equality
A home to an international community composed of expatriate researchers, students, the visiting professors, and individuals who come from various parts of the Philippines and the world; UPLB is a pluralism, a melting pot of cultures.
The University embraces its foreign students with inclusivity and multiculturalism. Having individuals from various countries is an opportunity for Filipino students and even the mentors to broaden their experiences and their perspectives of the world. It also establishes friendships and networks that enrich them as persons and as professionals.
Hence, when our graduates leave our academic halls, we are sure that they think locally and globally. They are more capacitated to face the challenges of a constantly changing world.
They can apply their knowledge of development issues in their field to address local and global concerns. They can make critical choices for the greater good.
In short, they become citizens of the world.
