The Community Extension and Outreach Programs (CEOPO) serves as the supporting and coordinating arm for the development of the University’s extension and outreach programs. Its main task is to ensure that the University’s extension, outreach, and social services development agenda is carried out and well-organized. Specifically, it promotes collaboration among the different schools, offices and extension institutes and foundations in the University and provides support services so as to facilitate their extension endeavors.

SLU derives its mandate for extension and social services from its identity and role as an institution of higher learning with its trifocal functions of instruction, research, and extension. However, unlike state universities and colleges (SUCs) which are mandated specifically to align their programs in support of national, regional or local development plans (cf. RA 7722 or Higher Education Act of 1994, Sec. 2, Par.2), the University adopts a more liberal thrust for each extension programs. As CICM (Congregatio Immaculati Cordis Mariae / Congregation of the Immaculate Heart of Mary) educational institution, it pursues its programs within the broader frame of the CICM missionary focus on the transformation of the world and the coming of the reign of God (CICM Constitutions Commentary, 1999) through its Justice, Peace, Integrity of Creation, and Indigenous Peoples’ Apostolate (JPIC-IPA).

Guided by the vision of holistic development of peoples and community, the University commits itself to the educational, religious, cultural, socio-economic, political, health, and environmental development needs of its partner communities and the nation as a whole. However, as there are also other institutions working on each of these areas, the University endeavours to focus on particular needs that are least attended to especially those that are in line with CICM mission priorities and Catholic Educational Association of the Philippines’ JEEPGY Advocacies and insofar as its capacities can reasonably allow.

As a higher education institution with expertise in teaching and research, it is precisely these specializations that the University brings to bear in its extension programs. Extension, however, is not a one-way traffic. As the University shares its expertise with the partner communities, a positive feedback is generated from the partner stakeholders and the process of extension itself, leading to more insights and questions on the state of knowledge. As theory meets practice, as formal knowledge meets casual needs, new impetus for knowledge generation and refinement shall ensue. This dynamic shall then enrich instruction and research within the University.
