Schools in Davao: University of the Immaculate Conception

University of the Immaculate Conception or UIC as commonly called by locals is one of the top schools in Davao City, Philippines.  It offers various courses and has three campuses namely: Fr. Selga Campus, the UIC main campus just near Bankerohan Public Market, Bonifacio Campus, situated near the downtown area, at Bonifacio Street and it is also called UIC Annex Campus and the Bajada Campus located in Bajada, Davao City which houses the Grade School and High School Departments.

UIC has also a Science Research Center which offers various research services to companies in Davao city and neighboring places.  It is accredited by Department of Science and Technology  (DOST) and Bureau of Food and Drug (BFAD)

University of the Immaculate Conception is one of the oldest schools in Davao City being built in 1905.  It is PAASCU Acredited Level III and was granted Autonomous Status by CHED or Commission on Higher  Education.  It is a Center of Development for Information Technology and Center for Excellence for Teacher Education Program as granted by CHED.  It is also accredited by the Bureau of Immigration to accept foreign students.

Historical Development

The University of the Immaculate Conception was founded in 1905 by the Religious of the Virgin Mary (RVM).  It started as a parochial school. “St. Peter’s parochial School” with only the primary and intermediate courses offered.

When the high school opened in 1934, the school assumed the name “Immaculate Conception Academy” and by 1938, the first batch of high school students graduated.  By then, the school had been re-named “Immaculate Conception Institute”.

As Word War II broke out in 1941, the school closed and was re-opened five years later.  The school was named “Immaculate Conception College (ICC)” which then offered initial two collegiate courses namely: Collegiate Secretarial and Pharmacy.

In the fifties, from 1951-1958, Immaculate Conception College (ICC) opened additional courses: BS in Education, BS in Home Economics, BS in Music, and BS in Elementary Education.

With the increasing enrollment and demand for more courses, the following programs were added in 1961-62, namely: Liberal Arts , BS in Commerce and BS in Medical Technology.

In 1969, the Grade and High School Departments were moved to ICC’s new site at Fr. Selga St., and followed y the College Department in 1971.  Three more courses were then added namely: BS Chemistry, Pharmacy Aide, and BS in Nutrition and Dietetics.

In 1983-1986, four more courses were opened: Cafeteria Management, BS in Civil Engineering, MA in Theology, and MA in Elementary Education.  It was in the nineties (90’s) when Immaculate Conception College (ICC) was challenged to become more responsive to the needs of Davao that more scientific and technological courses were opened, namely: BS ion Computer Engineering, BS Electronics and Communication Engineering, and BS Computer Science.

The graduate school picked up its pace and added more courses especially when Fund Assistance to Private Education (FAPE) identified ICC as one of the training centers of its scholars for Chemistry, Physics and Engineering.    The additional courses opened were MA in Educational Management, MA in Values Education, MA in Teaching College Physics, MA in Teaching College Chemistry, and MA in Engineering Education.

It was only on May 1, 1992 when DECS  Secretary Dr. Isidro Carino granted ICC the university status.  It took the name “University of the Immaculate Conception”.  The school was then 87 years old.

The University ushers in the 3rd millennium, (year 2000) answering the needs and challenges of the time.  Additional course were offered in the Graduate School namely; Mater of Science in Pharmacy (MSP), Master of Science in Information Technology (MSIT) and Master of Science  in Information Management (MSIM).  The college department opened new course; Bachelor of Science in Information Technology and Bachelor of Science in Information Management in response to the fast advancing information and communication technology of the present global society.

To maximize utilization of information through communication technology, the university launched the an “E-Learning Program”- a web-based learning program serving all departments / sections of the university.  It is a network of services to create, deliver and facilitate learning-teaching process whether inside or outside the traditional classrooms.

Together with the launching of E-Learning  program is the putting up of the state-of-the-art  facility for Information Technology Research Zone (ITRZ).  It is a modern computer, information technology and communication laboratory.  The installation and use of these facilities are aimed at providing UIC students with the best training on computer, science, engineering and communication technology.  It also offers short-term courses on computer literacy, creative global exploration hub (Internet), AutoCAD, and video-conferencing.

Another most important highlight for year 2000 was the transfer of the Grade School and High School Departments to a beautiful, sprawling 7-heactare UIC Bajada campus.  I has its own new, majestic and imposing 3-torey building complete with facilities.  There are air-conditioned auditorium, audio-visual/conference room, library, computer , science laboratories and a gymnasium.  A very wide playground and a chapel provide the pupils an opportunity to grow physically, psychologically and spiritually.

The University of the Immaculate Conception (UIC) has accepted the challenge to lead in humanities, science and technology in a globalized society.  It is her desire to give Christian and quality education, be relevant to the demands of the time and achieve its vision of a transformed society where persons live their dignity as children of God.
