The Ateneo Human Rights Center was founded in July 1986, a few months after the historic EDSA Revolution drew attention to the indomitable might that is People Power. While the dictatorship infamous for human rights violations was overthrown through peaceful and bloodless means, it became obvious immediately thereafter that much work still had to be done in the field of human rights. AHRC was established as one of the first university-based institutions engaged in the promotion and protection of human rights in the country.

Housed in the School of Law of the Ateneo de Manila, AHRC strives to do its part in espousing the university’s challenge that every Atenean should use the gift of excellence to be “lux in Domino” – light in the Lord.

Among the specific families of graphs that the group has worked on are the Hanoi graphs, Sierpinski graphs, zero divisor graphs and ideal-based zero divisor graphs.

Ateneo Mathematical Physics Lab

Phase space methods in quantum mechanics, time-frequency and wavelet methods in signal analysis. Wigner-Weyl fomalism and Groenewold-Moyal formalism are implemented on Lie groups. Parallel methods apply to the analysis and recovery of signals, as well as filtering and denoising. The main tool is the construction of coherent states on Lie groups. Discrete quantum systems are also considered with a view towards quantum information and computing.

The research group recognizes the advantages that technology can offer to mathematical learning, if only these can be designed well and made available easily. It envisions to design apps, databases and other software that can engage students through mathematical tasks and challenge them to investigate, make conjectures, and apply their reasoning. This group supports the implementation of the Philippine K to 12 mathematics framework, as it recognizes the affordances of technology, including manipulable objects, measuring devices, calculators, computers, smartphones, tablets, and the Internet. It is also involved in the creation of mathematical applications that support blended learning during the Covid 19 pandemic, making the applications accessible both through internet, community LTE networks and digital datacasting frameworks. The research group also conducts studies that determine the efficiency of the use of the technological tools in mathematical learning and reasoning.

Ateneo Symmetries in Algebra and Geometry Laboratory

The research group focuses on the fields of group theory, mathematical crystallography, and discrete geometry. Current research topics include geometric and crystallographic groups, tilings and polytopes, and symmetries in nature and culture. We give an emphasis on the interplay between algebraic and geometric objects in our research.





As the creativity and innovation hub of the Ateneo de Manila University, Areté provides the space and freedom for groups from different fields and persuasions to create, collaborate on, and share knowledge, skills, and practices.

Areté's complex features theaters, art galleries, studios, laboratories, a makerspace, teaching and meeting rooms, and several open areas. These facilities enable the University to host, support, and connect academics, artists, professionals, and leaders of different talents and interests whose exchanges, we hope, will spur the kind of creativity and innovation that creates unforeseen paths and betters our communities.

Areté is thus betting on the desire of a growing many, coming together to impart and to learn, to be inspired and to be challenged, to focus but still to wander in all that could be done as a collective concerned with what is possible.
