by providing transformative leadership in the management of a discipline and research-based,
collaborative and sustainable extension

ROLE OF ESO
The Extension Services Office serves as the supporting and coordinating arm for the development of well-organized extension programsof the College. Its main task is to ensure that theseprograms are carried out. Specifically, it promotes collaboration among the different departments of the College and provides technical assistance and support services in the implementation of the extension programs.
EXTENSION SERVICES OVERALL STRATEGIC FRAMEWORK
Christian formation aspires always to integrate three dimensions, namely: Instruction, Spirituality and Social Commitment.TheExtension Services Overall Strategic Framework provides the integration and interconnectedness of these components. It presents how the holistic integral human formation of the youth on the core values of Christ-centeredness, Excellence and Missionary can be achieved through the extension services. It envisions the interweaving and mutual complementation of the trifocal functions of the College namely instruction, research and extension.
CICM AND THE PREFERENTIAL OPTIONFOR THE POOR AND EXCLUDED
Since the foundation CICM as a missionary institute, the poor and the excluded have always been the focus of its commitment. The missionaries pioneered and dared to go to the geographical and social fringes of society in numerous countries, contributing to the transformation of the world towards a more just and humane society. The Reign of God is at hand but humanity has to promote and protect it.
The CICM Missionaries in the Philippines strive to be faithful to this charism. In June 2015, the CICMs in a general assembly approved the Philippine-Province Missionary Project where the seven Priority (Ad-extra) Commitments were affirmed, namely: (1) Indigenous Peoples, (2) Communities in Rural and Urban Periphery Areas (Parishes), (3) Educational Apostolate, (4) Campus Ministry, (5) Justice and Peace and Integrity of Creation, (6) Sectoral Ministries, (7) Inter-Religious Dialogue.
SAINT LOUIS COLLEGE ADVOCACIES
SLC, as the Beacon of Wisdom in the North, has fully integrated these seven CICM Commitments/Advocacies in its identity and action plans. The functions of Instruction and Research strategically integrate these advocacies. The extension and outreach services are research based. The instructional content in the different course offerings discuss the mentioned social realities.
With our partner entities, communities and organizations, we promote participatory collaboration. We see to it that our programs will always be sustainable. transfer of knowledge, skills and technology
For the moment, we have concrete projects like integrative non-formal education, action research, advocacy and networking, spiritual formation, developmental legal aid, poverty alleviation, values formation, psycho-social care, social mobilization on climate change, professionalconsultancy.
