Dr. Aristotle T. Malabanan, president of Manila Central University (MCU) joined his Creator on June 14, 2017.

“I have always believed in lifelong learning. This is why I feel that it is more of an opportunity than a duty to take up and hurdle this challenge,” Dr. Malabanan once said as he described his dedication in the field of education.

Under his leadership as administrator, the MCU academic programs grew and flourished. He led the MCU quality assurance initiatives such as International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and Institutional Sustainability Assessment (ISA) certification, accreditation and Center for Excellence leading to autonomous status.

Dr. Malabanan equally gave priority to facilities improvement as he spearheaded the construction of the Learning Resource Center and the Purple Owl Complex. The Basic Education Complex, composed of two buildings for High and Grade School and Senior High School, is near completion.

Dr. Malabanan, who was MCU president from January 2009 up to his passing, served as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer and Vice President for Academic Affairs prior to his appointment as President and Chief Operating Officer.

Born in August 21, 1957, he finished his doctoral studies in Education, Major in Educational Leadership and Management at De La Salle University and received a gold medal and recognition for graduating with high distinction on October 2008. He completed a Masters in Management program at the Asian Institute of Management in 1990, finished a Doctor in Optometry course in MCU in 1979, High School in San Beda College in 1975, and Grade School also in San Beda in 1971.
