Our University

Established in 1902, West Visayas State University (WVSU) started out as Iloilo Normal School.

It was a tributary normal school providing basic and secondary education as well as a training department for teachers.

By virtue of Republic Act No. 4189 in 1965, Iloilo Normal School became West Visayas State College. Courses aside from the earlier established teacher training programs were added. By the year 1986, through Presidential Decree 2019, it became West Visayas  State University.
