Department of Physical Education - Mission and Vision


The Department of Physical Education of the University of the East is committed to educating the whole person by offering a variety of programs reflecting that commitment. Our goal is to contribute to the physical, social, mental and emotional well-being of students, thereby enriching the total learning experiences. Exercise increases physical energy, mental alertness and self-confidence, and is believed to help foster creativity.

With these in mind, the UE Physical Education (PE) Program is designed to help students pursue meaningful activities. The program emphasizes active participation and enjoyment in a non-competitive atmosphere.

Four Physical Education subject are required by the Commission on Higher Education for College students, ideally to be completed within the first two years of college life. Likewise, the Secondary Level students have to finish a PE program in four years’ time, as mandated by the Department of Education (DECS Order No. 9 series 1990).

We at the UE Department of Physical Education always look forward to teaching the importance of personal responsibility, team work, good sportsmanship and total physical fitness. With our diverse curriculum, students can learn to make good choices and create fitness habits that will benefit them throughout their lives.
