Humble Beginnings


Talisay, 1941 – Dr. Antonio A. Lizares and Dr. Francisco Kilayko founded the Occidental Negros Institute, a small school which initially offered first and second years of high school education. When the Second World War broke out in December of 1941,  the institute was forced to close, though temporary.

Continuous Growth


After the war in 1946, ONI was re-established at Locsin Street, Bacolod City, offering elementary, high school, and three college degree programs. Due to the influx of students from the province, ONI transferred to a bigger venue in Lizares Avenue where it now stands. It was run by a Board of Trustees with Dr. Antonio Lizares as the first president and Dr. Francisco Kilayko as Director.

Tatak Rekoleto


ONI expanded and became the University of Negros Occidental, the first university in the province, on May 15, 1957 . Ten days later, UNO was passed on to the Order of Augustinian Recollects and became the University of Negros Occidental-Recoletos. The Recollect Fathers brought with them a wealth of experience in the field of education.
