Outreach Programs

OUTREACH IN FOCUS

An educational institution is established within the bounds of three major pillars: instruction, research, and community extension. While its primary function focuses on the provision of formal education, it is also expected to serve the community where it is a part of.

There are impoverished communities where people live in deprivation. Hard as they labor and toil to change their lot, these people need to be assisted to function as productive, useful and participative members of their families and communities.

The Community Outreach Program of Centro Escolar University (CEU) plays an important role in this endeavor.


VISION-MISSION OF THE COMMUNITY OUTREACH DEPARTMENT

  • VISION
    • A highly organized Community Outreach Department (COD) rendering  EFFECTIVE, EFFICIENT and HUMANE SERVICE to CEU schools/colleges and organizations.
       
  • MISSION
    • The Community Outreach Department (COD) has been established based on the imperative of the school to actively participate in community education and service.

      Considering CEU's important role in people empowerment and social development, COD, imbued with the values of love, care, and concern for people, commits itself to:
      • maximize existing manpower and material resources of CEU in order to serve   impoverished families, groups and communities;
      • develop a more facilitative network of cooperation and coordination between and among schools/colleges and organizations within the university;
      • promote the highest level and degree of volunteerism among students, faculty and non-teaching personnel; and
      • contribute to the inculcation of values of social responsibility and promotion of a dignified life for all, within and outside the university.

OUTREACH PROGRAM VOLUNTEERS AND THEIR ORGANIZATIONS

COMPASS (Community Outreach Movement Pro-Active Student Service)

The students have organized themselves into a strong organization called COMPASS (Community Outreach Movement Pro-Active Student Service).  This university-wide organization was established on June 26, 1998 with the aim of promoting and strengthening student involvement through voluntary participation in the University Community Outreach Program.  It also seeks to coordinate with various community outreach organizations of the different schools, GOs and NGOs in pursuit of exchanging experiences, ideas & furtherance of knowledge in terms of community understanding & genuine community involvement.

TEACH (Teachers’ Empowering Approach as Community Helpmates) 

Aside from the students, faculty members who render voluntary community involvement have also organized themselves into a group called TEACH (Teachers’ Empowering Approach as Community Helpmates). This organization seeks to promote and strengthen faculty involvement through worthwhile activities that would promote participation in the University's Community Outreach  Program. It aims to train faculty leaders who would volunteer to assist in the implementation of the Community Outreach Program.

SUPPORT (Support Personnel Outreach Team)

The Non-Teaching Personnel have also an organization of community volunteers which they called SUPPORT (Support Personnel Outreach Team).  Just like COMPASS and TEACH,  the purpose of SUPPORT is  to encourage the voluntary involvement of non-teaching personnel in community building efforts within and outside the university.
