The Xavier University – Ateneo de Cagayan (Filipino: Pamantasang Ateneo de Cagayan; Spanish: Universidad Ateneo de Cagayan), also known simply as the Ateneo de Cagayan or Xavier is a private, Catholic, coeducational, basic and higher education institution. Xavier is operated by the Philippine Province of the Society of Jesus in Cagayan de Oro, Misamis Oriental, Philippines. Founded in 1933 as the Ateneo de Cagayan, it became the first higher education institution in Mindanao to receive a university status a year before its sister school Ateneo de Manila. It was given its present name in honor of the Jesuit missionary St. Francis Xavier.

The university offers primary and secondary education as well as undergraduate and post-graduate education in humanities, social sciences, engineering, management and business. It offers professional degrees through graduate schools such as Xavier Ateneo College of Law and Jose P. Rizal School of Medicine.[1][2]

Prominent figures such as the late President Carlos P. Garcia and late President Corazon Aquino were among the people who were conferred an honorary degree by the university. PDP-Laban President Jose Alvarez is among the most notable alumni of the university. The named "Top 100 Most Powerful Women in the World" by The Australian: Ex-senator Miriam Defensor Santiago, was among the distinguished politician who was conferred by the school as well. The former Vice President Teofisto Guingona Jr. is among the notable alumnus of the university.[3][4][5][6][7][8] Filipino author Jonahmae Panen Pacala also known by her pseudonym as Jonaxx, is also a notable alumna of the university.

The institution consecutively earned the spot in the Quacquarelli Symonds World University Rankings' top 10 ranking in the Philippines.[9] [10]It is regarded as one of the top-ranked private university in the country with a thorough-selective admission.[11][12][13]



In 1933, an American Jesuit missionary Fr. James T. G. Hayes, S.J., founded Xavier University – Ateneo de Cagayan as the Ateneo de Cagayan. Fr. James T. G. Hayes, S.J., later became the first Bishop and Archbishop of Cagayan de Oro. The school was first located at Burgos Street by the former St. Augustine Parochial School, and began with 17 first-year students.

The city of Cagayan de Oro, then called Cagayan de Misamis, which had a population of around 50,000 years ago, was a major port town with fast-growing population. The school grew with the community, opening college courses in June 1938 and Grades 5 to 7 in June 1940, accommodating students from Mindanao and the Visayas.

World War II and rebuilding[edit]

Ateneo de Cagayan then moved to its present location along Corrales Avenue and grew into a college, offering courses in Liberal Arts, Education, and Commerce.

On December 9, 1941, with only 614 students, the school temporarily closed down on May 2, 1942. It housed the headquarters of the Imperial Japanese Army in Mindanao.

On September 9, 1944, U.S. Air Force bombings reduced most of Cagayan to rubble, along with the school. Then-rector Fr. Edward J. Haggerty, S.J., became chaplain to the advancing Visayas-Mindanao Force while serving as an advisor in Fertig's guerrilla government. He and his successor, Fr. Andrew F. Cervini, S.J., rebuilt the school, and regular classes resumed by 1946.

After the eruption of Mt. Hibok-Hibok in Camiguin on August 30, 1947, the campus housed refugees inside the gymnasium and even sponsored a boxing match to raise funds for the survivors.

University status[edit]

Rector Fr. Francisco Z. Araneta, S.J., had vowed to St. Francis Xavier that if Ateneo de Cagayan was granted university status before its commencement exercises on March 22, 1958, he would rename it after the saint. An hour before the commencement exercises, then-Secretary of Education Manuel Lim sent a telegram stating that Ateneo de Cagayan now had university status. On August 27, 1958, it was inaugurated as a university and officially became Xavier University – Ateneo de Cagayan. It became the first higher education institution in Mindanao to receive university status, a year before its sister school, the Ateneo de Manila. At the inauguration banquet, President Carlos P. Garcia received the first honorary degree conferred by the university.[3]


Xavier University – Ateneo de Cagayan operates on four campuses:

  • The eight-hectare main campus in the heart of Cagayan de Oro, where the undergraduate and graduate academic units are located;
  • The 50-hectare Manresa Complex in front of SM City Cagayan de Oro, which is used as the experimental and demonstration farms and extension works of the College of Agriculture, as well as the headquarters of SEARSOLIN, an outreach unit of the university; it also houses the Jose Chavez Alvarez Technology Complex of the Andrew L. Gotianun Sr. Center for Integrated Technologies;
  • The 13-hectare basic education campus in Pueblo de Oro where the grade school, junior high school, and senior high school departments are based, as well as the university's sports complex; the grade school used to have another campus in Barangay Macasandig before it finally closed in late 2021; and
  • The Maria Reyna Xavier University Hospital in Barangay Camaman-an (jointly run by Xavier, the Archdiocese of Cagayan de Oro, and the Sisters of Saint Paul of Chartres), which also serves as the training hospital for nursing and medicine students.

Campus of the Future project[edit]

In 2017, the institution proposed the ₱2.1 billion peso plan of the 21-hectare expansion project the Campus of the Future which would sell at least 4 hectares of its 6-hectare downtown campus and another 14-hectares of a 63-hectare agricultural property in Cagayan de Oro. “First-class education needs first-class building and campus design.” Xavier Ateneo President Fr. Mars P. Tan stated.

Cagayan de Oro Mayor Oscar Moreno also hailed the plan, saying the plan would “redefine” and change the landscape of Northern Mindanao's capital city. However, there has been some opposition from alumni and retired faculty and staff, citing long-term traffic issues in the uptown area, as well as the heritage status of the main campus.[14]

In line with this, the Provincial Superior of the Jesuits in the Philippines, Fr. Primitivo E. Viray, S.J., endorsed the plan to the Superior General of the Society of Jesus in Rome, the Very Rev. Arturo A. Sosa, S.J., whom gave the green-light to endorsed the plan to the Vatican for its approval.

In 2021, the Vatican has finally given its seal of approval for the Campus of the Future project of Xavier University – Ateneo de Cagayan. "The long wait for the final decision only showed the amount of time devoted by the Church authorities to review and study the project." in a statement said.[15][16]


The university is governed by a Board of Trustees, led by Francisco F. Guerra III as the chairman. Fr. Mars P. Tan, S.J., University President since July 31, 2020, is a member of the Board.[17]

As one of six Jesuit colleges and universities in the Philippines, Xavier Ateneo also forms a consortium with the other two Jesuit universities in Mindanao, namely: Ateneo de Davao University and Ateneo de Zamboanga University.

These include a first-year course in Ignatian spirituality, social exposure and reflection as part of the course curriculum. A second-year course fulfills the requirement for community service experience, on a weekly basis. Also, at least four courses in theology and in philosophy are required, with Muslim students allowed to study their own religious tradition.

Together with the Xavier University Center for Legal Assistance, students of the College of Law provide legal and paralegal assistance to marginalized members of society. Early on, they are exposed to litigation, consultation and counseling, which enable them to develop a logical and analytical mind, uphold high ethical standards, and possess a mastery of communication skills vital in effective law practice.
