UNISERVITATE Programme of Service-Learning in Catholic Higher Education

The UNISERVITATE Programme of Service-Learning in Catholic Higher Education aims to generate systemic change in Catholic Institutions of Higher Education (ICES), through the institutionalization of service-learning (AS) as a tool to achieve its mission of comprehensive education. Quality service-learning can offer a specific pedagogical contribution to Catholic Universities, helping them to articulate their social reach and spiritual identity with academic activities, offering innovative ways to achieve an integral education, as demonstrated by research and some ICES experiences.
The intention of the program is to articulate teaching, research and social outreach aligned with the central mission of ICES to integrate their spiritual identity in an innovative way to engage active youth as true agents of social change, who are critically and solidarily involved in accordance with the social teaching of the Church.
