Office of the Chancellor

The Office of the Chancellor (OC) performs the overall management, supervision, and administration of UPLB. It sets the strategic direction that the University takes in order to accomplish its mandates and responsibilities as defined under the UP Charter of 2008 or Republic Act 9500.

“We envision a future-proof UPLB— a university that has relevance and pride of place in national development and international dialogue, one whose human resources are not only at par, but also even exceed those of other global institutions. We aim to become a university known for its heart, for its concern and care for its constituents, and for producing graduates whose drive for public service and compassion for their fellow human beings are second to none.”
