Baguio Colleges was founded on June 19, 1946 by Atty. Benjamin R. Salvosa and his wife Evangelina D. Salvosa.
Baguio Colleges (1946 - 1967)
Baguio Colleges Foundation (1967 - 2003)
BC was the first higher learning institution in this highland city after World War II. This milestone inspired the creation of Baguio City as the education center of the north.
The college started with 156 students in teacher training and liberal arts at rented spaces in the Arevalo and the Antipolo buildings along Session Road.
The founders converted the college into a foundation as Baguio Colleges Foundation in 1967, providing access to more students in the region and the whole country.
In 2003, the school became the University of the Cordilleras (UC), extending its services in three core areas - to teach, to research, and to give back.
The university has grown to a complex of 10 colleges, collectively offering over 40 certificate, tertiary, graduate, and post-graduate programs, including a laboratory school for pre-school, grade school and high school, catering to around 2 students from the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR), and other regions of the country and overseas.

The Kalinga People of the Cordilleras, Ethnic Group in Philippines
Due to the mountainous terrain and warrior-culture of the people, the Kalinga were able to preserve their culture despite centuries of occupation in the lowlands by the Spaniards, Americans, and the Japanese.
The Kalinga people are highlanders and the most extensive rice farmers of the Cordillera peoples, having been blessed with some of the most suitable land for both wet and dry rice farming. Like the Ifugao, the Kalinga are prolific terrace builders. The Kalinga are also skilled craftsmen, well-versed in basketry, loom weaving, metalsmithing, and pottery, the last centred in the lower Chico River Valley.
On February 22, 2019, the Department of Tourism announced the bid of Digdiga Ni Tupayya, a Kalinga courtship dance, to be included in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage Lists.

Baguio Boy is Next PNP Chief
UPDATE: Lieutenant General Camilo Cascolan is the next Philippine National Police (PNP) chief, replacing retiring top cop General Archie Gamboa, Interior Secretary Eduardo Año confirmed to Rappler on Tuesday, September 1.
Cascolan is set to retire on November 10 as he reaches the mandatory age of retirement of 56, unless President Rodrigo Duterte decides to extend his term.
Asked about Cascolan's possible short term, Año said the public should not focus on the span of his stint, but the work to be done.
"Matagal pa naman ang 2 months (2 months is still long). We don't think of that yet. There is a lot to be done," he said.
In terms of seniority, Cascolan was next in line to be chief as the deputy chief for administration of the PNP. He belongs to the Philippine Military Academy Sinagtala Class of 1986.
Police Lt. Gen. Camilo Pancratius Cascolan will serve as officer-in-charge of the Philippine National Police (PNP) upon the retirement of Gen. Archie Gamboa on Wednesday, Malacañang said Tuesday.
Known by his nickname "Pikoy," Cascolan is also a member of the Philippine Military Academy Class of 1986, to which his two predecessors, Police Generals Gamboa and (now Senator) Ronald de la Rosa also belonged.
A native of Baguio City, he is a product of the Maryknoll Convent School and the University of the Philippines Baguio High School.

The PMA has been allowed to cut 53 trees, including 39 pine trees, from June 24 to July 8 by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) to make way for a new building, according to Navy Capt. Cheryl Tindog, the academy spokesperson.
The new building is part of the 2014 master development plan, which the academy resumed after fresh funds were allocated for its infrastructure improvement.
The permit was approved on June 17 by Ralph Pablo, DENR director for the Cordillera.
