The UP Charter of 2008 mandates the University of the Philippines as the national university. The University assumes distinctive leadership in setting academic standards and initiating innovations in teaching, research and faculty development in philosophy, the arts and humanities, the social sciences, the professions and engineering, the natural sciences, mathematics, and technology, and maintain centers of excellence in these disciplines and professions.

For its part, UPLB commits to advancing knowledge in science, technology, agriculture, forestry and natural resources, and other areas of scholarship that best serve the Filipinos and the world in this present century. Its mission is to train the country’s needed manpower and to undertake relevant researches and extension services which aim to effectively apply and mobilize the University’s academic and technical expertise and resources to help address the problems of the country.

It was imperative for UPLB to excel complementarily in the basic areas of the physical sciences like mathematics and physics. In this way, UPLB shall gain the status of a comprehensive university and achieve its role in the development of the applied fields of science that are responsive and anticipative of the needs of the nation, in particular, the CALABARZON.

Evidently, the mathematical sciences play a significant role in the physical and management sciences, engineering, biological, social and even political science in both academic and non-academic spheres.  The IMSP generally aims to promote the mathematical sciences and physics through instruction, research, and extension consistent with UPLB’s mission and development goals. Specifically, the Institute aims to:

  1. provide high quality instruction in the mathematical sciences and physics general education program.

  2. produce graduates who possess extensive and well-rounded education and training in mathematics and physics so that they are better equipped to realize and recognize new and important applications of the mathematical sciences.

  3. develop, administer, and provide non-formal training in the field of mathematical sciences and physics.

  4. undertake relevant research and development activities on the applied and theoretical aspects of the mathematical sciences and physics.
