Miriam College

Introduction

Miriam (formerly Maryknoll) College is a non-profit, non-stock Catholic educational institution that has offered programs for young women at the basic, tertiary, post-graduate and adult education levels for more than 85 years. The institution also supports specialized centers engaged in curriculum development, research, community outreach and advocacy in the fields of social development, peace education, environmental studies and women’s empowerment. Together, these academic courses and special centers work in harmony to realize Miriam College’s vision as a premier educational institution in the Philippines.

Miriam College has molded many generations of students in the tradition of academic excellence and service to God, the community and nation. We are proud of having developed competent, well-rounded, principled individuals who possess a clear understanding of the socio-political issues of the times, who are motivated to participate in nation-building, and provided with a solid cultural foundation. It is in this context that Miriam College seeks to find its niche in the formation of Women Leaders in Service.

Our Vision

Miriam College is a premier Filipino Catholic institution of learning that forms leaders in service who combine competence with caring, are rooted in Filipino culture and Asian tradition, and yet are citizens of the world.

Miriam College, by integrating the work of education with the life of faith, develops persons, particularly girls and young women to build the Filipino nation and to be co-creators of God’s kingdom on earth.

Miriam College is committed to excellent academic programs infused with Christian values, enhanced by modern technology and enriched by national and international linkages.

Finally, Miriam College commits itself to creating and living within our school community the very changes we seek to realize in society.

Our Mission

It offers excellent programs at the basic, tertiary, post graduate and adult education levels through learner-centered, value-integrating, research-based and innovative approaches.

Our Core Values

TRUTH

We believe in the power of knowledge and the liberating force of truth. We commit ourselves to the systematic and scientific search for truth and to fairness and openness in its pursuit. We reject all forms of deceit, falseness and dishonesty. We strive for the highest quality of intellectual and academic output at the same time that we recognize and value the wisdom of the heart.

JUSTICE

We believe that all human beings should be equally blessed to be responsible for and to enjoy the fruits of knowledge-generation and social progress. We commit ourselves to a society where power and opportunity are equally shared and where the “naked are clothed and the hungry are fed.” We reject discrimination of any kind against any individual or any group. We believe in gender equality and strive for and support a diverse and interdependent human community in which people’s rights, welfare and empowerment are centrally valued.

PEACE

We believe that we should be peace-builders. We also believe that peace means the absence of violence as well as the presence of values, attitudes, behavior and ways of life based on non-violence and respect for the fundamental rights and freedom of every person. We reject violence of every form and in every social interaction and all institutions. We are committed to work for creative and constructive ways of solving conflict and to foster caring and loving relationships among all human beings and between humans and the rest of creation.

INTEGRITY OF CREATION

We believe that God has called us to be stewards of all creation and that the well-being and happiness of future generations rest upon sustainable and equitable systems and processes of production and consumption. We reject destruction of the environment and waste of natural resources. We commit ourselves to care for the earth and to practice a lifestyle that sustains the health of the planet on which all life depends.
