CDAC’s Advocacies

St. Paul University Quezon City has instituted the CDAC to plan, organize, initiate, facilitate, coordinate, implement, evaluate and support all community extension services (CES).  

It provides centralized leadership for all outreach activities of the institution and serves as an avenue for centralized monitoring of all the institution’s CES.

Disaster Management

The SPUQC commits to ensure the safety of its community through the creation of SPUQC Disaster Management Coordinating Center (SPUQC-DRMCC) by which its major task is to plan and respond to any disaster and emergency situations.

Responding to disaster especially a catastrophic event is guaranteed to be unique, complex and confusing; hence, preparedness minimizes hazards’ adverse effects through effective education and precautionary measures that ensure a timely, appropriate and efficient organization and delivery of response and relief action.

Thus, the SPUQC community inculcates the core values of Christ-centeredness and community into forming Paulinians as responsible steward of God’s creation.

 

Objectives:

  1. Inculcate among the employees and students the importance of providing care and respect for the environment.
  2. Mobilize the employees and students to participate in activities relevant to the preservation of environment in and out of the school campus.

Pro-life, Pro-family

St. Paul University Quezon City vows to its commitment to protect, preserve, nurture human life and  uphold Filipino family tradition and  values.

Hence, all SPUQC activities are geared towards preserving the culture of life and preserving the relationship of the family as a response to the challenges posed by the Holy Father in His letter, Amoris Laetitia, the Joy of Love.

  1. Ensure that all programs and activities, both in the institutional and academic level, reflect values on the preservation of life and Filipino family tradition.
  2. Instill in every Paulinian the value of human dignity and the harmony within the family and condemn any form of violence and threat against it.

 

Justice and Peace

The Justice and Peace advocacy is a response to the Church’s challenge of active faith witnessing, believing that “Action on behalf of justice and participation in the transformation of the world fully appear to us as a constitutive dimension of the preaching of the Gospel, or, in other words, of the Church’s mission for the redemption of the human race and its liberation from every oppressive situation.” [Justice in the World, 6]. As a Catholic university, we are committed to promote and advocate peace through works of justice in our community.
