Innovation is our tradition.

History

In 1919, the visionary couple Dean Conrado Benitez and Francisca Tirona Benitez founded in Manila the Philippine Women’s College (now the Philippine Women’s University). In time, their vision of women’s education would transcend the boundaries of Manila and reach south of the archipelago. PWC alumnae from Mindanao saw the need to spread and promote the educational objectives of their Alma Mater among the young people of Mindanao. This idea became a reality when the PWU Board of Trustees approved the plan to put up the Philippine Women’s College of Davao (PWC), which eventually opened its doors to students in 1953. 

Vision

We envision a graduate who is God-loving, academically competent, civic conscious, environmentally and socially concerned, globally competitive, and committed to the promotion of peace.

Mission

To Educate

according to the four-fold objective of inculcating good moral character and personality, training for home and family life, preparing for vocation or profession and developing aptitude for community participation and leadership.

To Contribute

through research and continuous interaction with the community, to the enhancement of the spiritual, social and economic life in the country and the world at large.

To Lead

through pioneering in the field of gender education in the opening of new avenues towards the expansion of knowledge and opportunities, fostering of humanism and understanding, while conserving the wisdom and ideals of the ages and integrating the valuable inheritance of Filipino personhood.
