Welcome to Cebuano Studies Center

The Cebuano Studies Center is a center of research on all aspects of Cebuano culture. It functions as (1) a special library to house source materials pertaining to Cebu, as well as the predominantly Cebuano-speaking areas in the country; (2) a research center devoted to studies pertaining to Cebu in the area of the humanities and social sciences; and (3) a special office assisting in the promotion of Cebuano culture and the arts.

The Cebuano Studies Center was established in December 1975 by the University of San Carlos as part of the extension services of the university.  It was first conceived in 1972 as an answer to the growing demand for research services in local history and vernacular literature. As envisioned, the Center hopes to be of service to more scholars and researchers, and in more areas of study.
