The HAU Founders Day Awards are given on March 8, the Univer­sity’s foun­da­tion day an­niver­sary which co­in­cides with the birth an­niver­sary of the school’s founder, Don Juan D. Ne­po­mu­ceno.

The process of se­lec­tion started a few months ear­lier with the Univer­sity’s aca­demic and non-aca­demic units sub­mit­ting their nom­i­na­tions and sev­eral com­mit­tees short­list­ing the fi­nal­ists un­til the Board of Trustees de­cided on the win­ners a few days be­fore the award­ing cer­e­monies.

The awards give recog­ni­tion to for­mer em­ploy­ees and stu­dents of HAU as well as to Ka­pam­pan­gan cul­tural work­ers and lay Catholic ed­u­ca­tors, since the Univer­sity is known as one of the coun­try’s lead­ing ad­vo­cates of lo­cal his­tory and cul­ture and the coun­try’s first Catholic school founded by a lay per­son.

Univer­sity Pres­i­dent Dr. Luis Maria Calingo and the Chair­man of the HAU Board of Trustees Most Rev. Pa­ciano Aniceto, D.D., Arch­bishop-Emer­i­tus of San Fer­nando, will con­fer the awards dur­ing cer­e­monies to be held at the Univer­sity Theatre on March 8 at ten o’clock in the morn­ing after the Founders Day Mass.
