Mendiola Consortium (MC) is an educational organization of four institutions located along the street of Mendiola in Manila, Philippines. It was founded in July 16, 1974 upon the invitation of then Centro Escolar University President Dionisio Tiongco the heads of San Beda College, College of the Holy Spirit and La Consolation College.

They formally agreed to unite their manpower and physical resources to enhance the capability of providing quality education and public service, and to participate more effectively in the attainment of national development. They have come to share a common conviction that the Consortium can be a more potent instrument for change, innovation, and relevance, not only for its immediate constituency but also for the larger community, its activities are adequately planned, its strategies better organized, and its implementation efforts properly coordinated. It is through the MC schools that Mendiola street have become a peace zone, since it was traditionally a site of rallies because of its proximity to Malacañang Palace.
