The “Tayo Ang Kalikasan” is the DENR’s national environmental campaign that seeks to strengthen collaborative efforts among the various sectors in the society for the protection of the natural resources and the maintenance of the ecological balance for the future generation. The partnership between Liceo U and the DENR aims at engaging students as Environment and Natural Resources ambassadors advocating for the DENR’s and the University’s environmental initiatives. The University's ENR ambassadors are Riza Joy Canas, Glaisy Velez, Lyndy Barba, Anthony Saulda, Dallyn Yee, and Joanna Therese Rodriguez.

Liceo U has recently inked a Memorandum of Agreement with the DENR for its national environmental initiatives. Hence, the University will continue to engage her personnel and students in the DENR-led activities for the protection and conservation of the environment and for instilling in her constituents a sense of social responsibility.


Physical wellness of the workforce is an essential component of human resource management. It goes without saying that personnel’s physical wellness impacts individual and organizational performance. Hence, cognizant of the importance of physical wellness in the workplace, the University provides her regular academic and non-academic personnel with health insurance program with MAXICARE. The health coverage is fully subsidized by the University. 

Part of the healthcare benefits is an annual physical exam. For this year, Healthcheck is the service provider for the three-day annual physical exam (June 9-11) that covers the five basic tests and additional tests (ECG, Pap Smear, FBS, and Total Cholesterol). Being held at the Liceo Civic Center, the physical exam is scheduled in three batches to service the personnel of the three campuses. COVID-19 health and safety guidelines are strictly enforced to ensure everyone’s safety.
