History of LNU

Image

The history of Leyte State College now Leyte Normal University dates back and starts here in 1921 when it came into being as the Provincial Normal School. It eventually outgrew its base, becoming a two-year collegiate training institution in 1938. Known as the Leyte Normal School, it became a degree-granting four-year college complete with a training department in 1952. Then on June 14, 1976, it was converted into the Leyte State College when the late President Ferdinand E. Marcos signed Pres. Decree No. 944, authorizing the college to operate its own charter.

With the full trust and confidence in the institution itself the former Congressman of the First District of Leyte, Hon. Cirilo Roy Montejo introduced and filed House Bill No. 22 proposing the conversion of Leyte State College into a university. Tha said bill was co-sponsored in the Senate by no less than the Chairman of the Education Committee, Hon. Letecia Ramos-Shahani. The same bill was enacted into law under Republic Act No. 7910 finally converting the Leyte State College into Leyte Normal University on February 23, 1995.

In 1993, Leyte Normal University, then Leyte State College was awarded Level 1 Accredited Status by the AACCUP. In 1996, the college achieved its Level II Accredited Status. The context of accredited status renders credence, credibility and strong recognition to LNU as a teacher-training institution of high repute and academic standards in the whole of Region 8 and of the entire Philippines.

Sometime in April 1996, Leyte Normal University was proclaimed by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) as a Center of Excellence for Teacher Education (COE) and has maintained its status as a COE up to the present.
