Lyceum of the Philippines University (LPU), a private tertiary educational institution located in Region IV-A was established in 1966 by the late Senator, Dr. Sotero H. Laurel, who together with three prominent women in Batangas namely Miss Belen U. Castillo, Miss Criselda Castillo and Miss Pascuala Tolentino, laid the ground works for establishing another Lyceum in the province. Adopting the educational philosophy of his father, former President Jose P. Laurel, Dr. Sotero H.
