CEU Community Outreach Department

The CEU-Community Outreach Department was established based on the imperative of the University to actively participate in COMMUNITY EDUCATION and SERVICE in order to:

  • provide opportunities to develop and deepen the sense of community awareness on the different concerns, needs and issues that affect the lives of people and which prevent them from maximizing their full potentials to become productive citizens, and
  • conduct relevant activities which are aimed at developing community self-reliance

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:


1.    maximize existing manpower and material resources of CEU in order to serve impoverished families, groups and communities;
2.    develop a more facilitative network of cooperation and coordination between and among schools/colleges and organizations within the university;
3.    promote the highest level and degree of volunteerism among students, faculty and non-teaching personnel;
4.    contribute to the inculcation of values of social responsibility and promotion of a dignified life for all, within and outside the university.

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 which aims at 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.

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 C ommunity Outreach Program.

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

In 2014, the CEU alumni also formed an organization called CHAIN (Collaboration of Helpful Alumni who are Involved Now) which has been implementing COP projects and activities to assist impoverished communities.
