Our Community Extension Program (CEP) is the response of the College to the prevalent needs of the school and the community. It is an important instrument that links the classroom to social reality and thus facilitates a more dynamic learning. In the process, the student develops a Christian orientation in his chosen profession with love and service for others, especially the needy and the powerless as motivating force.
There are two aspects of community extension involvement of faculty members and students: the school community outreach and the personal community service. The first requires the faculty members and students to undertake some forms of community extensions services in the adopted community. The second encourages the faculty and students to show and manifest his expertise or field of specialization outside of the school and requires him to undertake in-campus community services.
CEP is concerned with the integrated development of the individual, society, and the community as a whole. It is guided by the belief in the dignity and worth of the individual, his/her potential, and capacity for growth and development for a better life.
It operates on the belief that people should be helped in such a manner and spirit to foster self-esteem and develop self-reliance rather than dependency.
Guided by the philosophy of Olivarez College, the Community Outreach Program aims to:
The Campus Ministry is an apostolate of service to the entire school community by providing care and concern for persons by proclaiming the Gospel and its value through building and strengthening a community of faith by celebrating the life of the community specially through the liturgy.
