he University’s first science departments, namely, Botany, Chemistry, Mathematics, and Zoology, were organized on 03 June 1910, under the College of Liberal Arts, later renamed the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS). In 1976 the CAS was reorganized into three (3) divisions: Division of Humanities, Division of Social Sciences, and Division of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, with the latter consisting of seven

departments: Botany, Chemistry, Geology and Geography, Mathematics, Meteorology and Oceanography, Physics, and Zoology. On 26 October 1983, the Board of Regents approved the partition of the CAS into three (3) new colleges: College of Arts and Letters, College of Social Sciences and Philosophy, and College of Science with the latter being organized out of the Division of Natural Sciences and Mathematics (excluding Geography). The College of Science (CS) started operating as a separate college on 19 December 1983, when Dr. Roger Posadas was appointed as its first Dean, who served the college up to his appointment as Chancellor of UP Diliman in November 1993. The deans who succeeded Dr. Posadas are: Dr. Danilo Yanga (1993-1999); Dr. Rhodora Azanza (1999-2006); Dr. Caesar Saloma (2006-2011), and Dr. Jose Maria Balmaceda (2011 – present). The CS is the largest college in UP Diliman in terms of regular faculty size and second largest in student enrolment. It is the acknowledged national center of excellence for advanced education and research in the natural and mathematical sciences. Its faculty has the country’s largest concentration of PhD scientists and its undergraduate, graduate, and research programs conform to international standards of excellence. It leads the whole UP system in the publication of refereed scientific articles in reputable national and international journals. As of 2013, five (5) units of the College have been declared “National Centers of Excellence” through Executive Orders and Proclamations of the President of the Republic, namely, the National Institute of Physics (NIP), National Institute of Geological Sciences (NIGS), Natural Sciences Research Institute (NSRI), Marine Science Institute (MSI), and National Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (NIMBB). The latter is part of the country’s Network of National Institutes of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology. The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) has declared several units of the College as “Centers of Excellence” (COE) in basic sciences; namely, the Institute of Mathematics, Institute of Biology, Institute of Chemistry, MSI, NIP, NIGS, and NIMBB. The COE status of these units is renewable upon satisfactory performance evaluation by CHED. The long-term goal of the College is to become a world-class center of excellence for advanced scientific education and research. Its primary mission is to contribute to the advancement of science and technology in the Philippines through high-quality science education, the acquisition of scientific and technological knowledge, and the provision of scientific and technical services. The College performs three main functions: • To provide international-quality graduate and undergraduate education in the natural and mathematical sciences. • To undertake basic and applied scientific research that is of high standard and national relevance. • To render technical extension services in support of national scientific and technological development.
