About BSU

As an institution of higher learning, Benguet State University (BSU) was created by PD 2010 to carry out programs along instruction, research, extension, and agribusiness through dynamic and responsible governance. It started as the La Trinidad Farm School 1916 and gradually grew in its scope and reach. It became a chartered university in 1986 and continues to be a leading agricultural state university in northern Luzon.

At present, BSU maintains an Open University, 14 colleges offering seven doctorate degrees, 39 masters programs, 19 undergraduate degrees, and a number of diploma/certificate special short courses.

BSU's research and extension programs are pursued to enhance the impact of these curricular offerings as well as to help improve the livelihood and health of the communities it services.

Its production sector serves as a lifeline that provides additional resources to carry out the various operations of BSU and a sound avenue to showcase the technologies generated that are economically feasible, socially acceptable, and environment-friendly.

The BSU status as a CHED-SUC-Level-IV University has been mainly attributed to the majority of its programs, projects, and activities having attained Level III based on the standard of the Accrediting Agency of Chartered Colleges and Universities of the Philippines (AACCUP).

BSU includes three campuses. The largest campus is sprawled on a 605.7855 hectare-land grant in the heart of La Trinidad Valley, the capital town of the Benguet Province about 255 kilometers north of Manila and 5 kilometers away from Baguio City. The Buguias Campus formerly the Buguias-Loo Polytechnic College integrated to BSU in 2001 is 81-km away from the La Trinidad campus while the Bokod Campus formerly the Benguet School of Arts and Trades integrated in 2002 is 51-km away.
