USJR Logo Meaning and Symbols


Caritas et Scientia

This crowning inscription, Charity and Science, reflects the origin and the goal of the University. To be the channel of love and truth is to lead towards God, who is Himself Love and Truth, the Absolute Good. 

The ribbon depicts service. 

The Book and The Flaming Pierced Heart

The book symbolizes the Sacred Scriptures and the teaching authority of the Church which the University strictly adheres to. The flame illustrates restlessness which, according to Saint Augustine, can be stopped only when the heart has found its rest in God. Together, these symbols portray the Christian dimension of Caritas et Scientia. 

Rope / Cord

The rope surrounding the seal represents discipline and teamwork. Discipline forms character; character fosters teamwork, a value which the Josenian community stands for. 

Bamboo Cross, Book, Heart, Rays of the Sun, Belt

These identify the institution as belonging to the Province of Saint Ezekiel Moreno of the Order of Augustinian Recollects. These also evoke the missionary and global thrust of the Recoleto brand of education.

Cross of Magellan

This represents the City of Cebu, the cradle of Christianity in the Far East, where the University is located. This prompts us to center and be rooted in Christ and His Church as we journey in faith. 

Building

Lily and the Scapular of Mount Carmel

Both items are at the center of the seal, these represent the two models of the Catholic faith, namely: Saint Joseph and the Blessed Mother. They inspire each Josenian to emulate their virtues of moral integrity, attentiveness and obedience to God’s will, and self-effacing and generous service to fellowmen. 

Books, Leaves, Ink and Pen, CD, and others

These typify the many course offerings through which USJ-R equips the youth with the necessary knowledge, attitudes and skills to face the challenge of transforming the world. 

Star

Symbolical of the Mother Province of San Nicolas de Tolentino, this star reminds us of our humble beginnings and calls us to be continually grateful and loyal to our past.
