COMMUNITY EXTENSION SERVICES AND ADVOCACIES
Envisions USI as a community disciples-in-mission that is
committed to provide holistic and integral community development that liberates, transforms, and improves quality of life of the people in partner communities through active engagement of USI stakeholders.
Using community organizing as primary method, the Integrated Community Extension Services and Advocacies (ICESA), a service-learning and advocacy unit of the University, implements its component projects, namely:
FAITH, VALUE AND LEADERSHIP FORMATION
EDUCATIONAL SERVICES AND SOCIAL ADVOCACY
CAPACITY, LIVELIHOOD, JOB AND ENTREPRENUERIAL DEVELOPMENT
NUTRITION, HEALTH AND WELLNESS
ENVIRONMENTAL REHABILITATION AND REGENERATION
These component projects envision the development of families and communities by sharing the University’s expertise, resources and technologies, through the collaborative efforts of its Lay Mission Partners, Students, Parents, Alumni, Lay Administrators and the Daughters of Charity to the partner communities,
barangay officials, parishes and other partner agencies (NGO and GO). All ICESA engagements to the community and marginalized person cascade from the Vincentian Charism of Service of Christ to Persons in situations of poverty and are meant to be integrated and holistic.
