The Isabela State University – San Mateo campus proudly stands at its new location after 20 years of stay at the Barangay Hall.  San Mateo campus stands on a ground that was once an agricultural land owned by generous Col. Andres D. Damian. Although it is not big campus as its mother campus, it houses a family of teachers and students, who have brilliant minds and creative hands in achieving excellence in Instruction, production, research and extension.

          ISU San Mateo campus has gone long in its effort to work for the betterment of the students. At 34th year ISU San Mateo remains steadfast in its mission of giving quality education.

          It is a fact that ISU – San Mateo has never been spared of problems in its commitments to uphold quality education and instruction including services. However, it has surpassed the test of time with its capacity for survival that even in the midst of constant change of societal demands and challenges; it has proven its competence as proven by the result of the recent celebration of its silver founding anniversary.

    ISU San Mateo remains open to more complex challenges in sustaining high standard education.

The San Mateo Vocational and Industrial School which started in 1976 had a two-year Technical College Department which consequently became the nucleus of the Isabela State University San Mateo Campus in pursuant of Section 15 of Presidential Decree 1434.
