Philippine Normal University – Lopez, Quezon

Brief History
The PNU Quezon Campus is the fourth regional campus of the University based in Region IV-A in the flourishing town of Lopez, Quezon. It started in a consortium program in Teacher Education with another emerging campus of the Polytechnic University of the Philippines in 1980.

When the consortium agreement expired in 1993 after almost 13 years of educational partnership, the leadership of PNU headed by then President Gloria G. Salandanan, penned a memorandum of agreement with the provincial and local government of Quezon and the Department of Education, Culture and Sports (DECS) to continue the operation of the PNU Teacher Education Program in Lopez, Quezon.

Hence, the fledgling campus stayed in the compound of the Lopez National Comprehensive High School from 1993 to 1999. In a span of six years, the young campus had gradually acquired its own one-hectare site through a land donation from the provincial government. For its part, the municipal government had pledged another hectare for future expansion. In 1999, the campus transferred to its own site where a two-story building has been constructed.
Presently, PNU Quezon provides education services and opportunities to students and educators coming from different areas in Southern Tagalog Region and Bicol Region. Over a thousand of its teacher graduates are now gainfully employed here and abroad. Gradually, PNU Quezon is fulfilling its vision of being the Center of Excellence in Teacher Education in Region IV.
