管理 by the Society of the Divine Word (Societas Verbi Divini, 自1935年以来,圣言), the 大学 of 圣卡洛斯 (韦德游戏平台) traces its roots to the Colegio de San Ildefonso founded in August 1595 in Cebu City. The school closed in 1769 following the expulsion of Jesuit priests from the Philippines, and was reopened in 1783 as Colegio-Seminario de 圣卡洛斯 which operated until the Colegio split from the seminary in 1930. Following another brief closure during World War II, Colegio de 圣卡洛斯 became a 大学 in 1948.

Rapid growth in the ‘50s saturated the campus near the city center prompting expansion of the 大学 to what was then called the Boys’ High School in 1956 (now North Campus), and in 1964 to the Teacher Education Center and Girls’ High School (now South Campus) and to Talamban Campus. In 2008, the erstwhile SVD Formation Center was transformed into the Montessori Campus. Total land area of the 大学’s five campuses is almost 88 hectares (or 217 acres), with about 78 hectares in Talamban Campus alone and potentially ample room for future growth.

今天, the 大学 is one of the most respected higher education institutions in the Philippines, offering 45 undergraduate and 62 graduate programs. Many of these programs have received Level II or Level III accreditation from the Federation of Accrediting Associations of the Philippines (FAAP), as evaluated by the Philippine Accrediting Association of 学校, 大学, and Universities (PAASCU). Seven engineering programs are also accredited by the Philippine Technological Council-Accreditation and Certification Board for Engineering and Technology (PTC-ACBET). The Philippine Commission on Higher Education (CHED) also granted Autonomous Status to the 大学, and designated eight Centers of Excellence (COE) and 12 Centers of Development (COD) in 韦德游戏平台. 近22,000 students in basic to graduate education are enrolled in the 大学, with almost 200 international students. On average, the teacher-to-student ratio at 韦德游戏平台 is 1:20. 韦德游戏平台 is ranked between 451 to 500 in the QS 大学 Rankings for Asia 2021.
