Educational Philosophy

The PLM Philosophy

The Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila subscribes to the educational philosophy that focuses on the development of the total person:

  • his intellectual growth
  • his physical well-being
  • his social consciousness
  • his moral and spiritual enhancement

all geared towards moulding him into a more responsible and productive citizen. This philosophy is made manifest in the university's commitment to:

  • The advancement of human knowledge through basic study and researches
  • The full development of the Filipino intellect and the promotion of Filipino culture
  • The professional training in public affairs as well as in the scientific, the cultural, the technological, the industrial and the vocational fields
  • The introduction in its curricula of such studies which do not receive sufficient emphasis at present in the curricular offerings of existing institutions of higher learning in the country
