The History of Philippine Christian University

The Philippine Christian University (PCU) is a private, coeducational Christian university located in Ermita, Manila, Philippines. It was founded in 1946 through the initiatives of the Laymen of the Evangelical Association of the Philippines. Originally named as Manila Union University, it was renamed as Philippine Christian College (PCC). In 1976, the PCC acquired university status.

PCU is one of the two major mainline Protestant (related with the United Church of Christ in the Philippines and The United Methodist Church) universities at the heart of Metro Manila. The other is Trinity University of Asia under the auspices of the Episcopal Church.

Today PCU had grown into an institution responsive to national needs through its expanded and relevant curricular offerings.
