Dr. Dalisay Brawner, president of the University, said “...while the University is relatively young, it has earned for itself a remarkable set of accomplishments most especially in terms of students’ performances, be it curricular or co-curricular in nature. This may be attributed to the students’ high level of motivation to study, the faculty members’ passion and commitment to teaching, and the increased support of the City Government of Marikina and other benefactors and donors.”
Dr. Brawner adds, “Along the way, the University has initiated reforms in its governance, enriched its curricula, enhanced the delivery of instruction, revisited policies, institutionalized its research and community extension programs and projects, among others, all geared toward the attainment of quality education. Over the last past years, PLMar’s enrollment has dramatically increased, hitting 6,000 this year.”
