General Guidelines on Rendering Social Orientation and Community Involvement Programs (SOCIP)
The Office for Social Orientation and Community Involvement Programs (SOCIP) takes into account the diverse differences and commonalities of the different communities it serves. Taking into example the implementation of its Community Education Programs namely: The Alternative Learning Equivalency and Accreditation Program (ALEAP) which caters to the out-of-school youths and adults to finish their high school; and the different Short-Term Courses that caters both young and adults to learn and gain additional knowledge on different fields; SOCIP ensures that community outreach activities provides access to all, regardless of ethnicity, religion, age, disability, immigration status, socio-economic status, sexual orientation or gender. Doing SOCIP activities whether in-house which is within the University, or, on-site which is within the community premises, provisions are set in place to address diverse differences. Moreover, access to Community Education Programs were made more viable through harnessing the potentials of information technology. The Dunong Lingkod website (https://dunonglingkod.mapua.edu.ph/) which is a free learning portal, was introduced in 2020 and was fully implemented in 2021. It houses ALEAP and Auxiliary Learning Resources (ALR) which includes micro-lecture videos, that aims to supplement students’ needs to help them on their studies. It also provides opportunities for life long learning.
