Peace Advocacy & Volunteerism


Presently, Peace is an abstract concept looking for its way to have a piece of space in human hearts. The turmoil that we face around the world is a fact that we can’t ignore, it opens our eyes on the reality of war and the consequences it brought to human lives. The Philippines is no exception to this reality, as such we condemn atrocities and impunities that’s been going on for generations.

The Office for Community Development had its functioning program that  enable the  students, faculty, staff and community partners to have a grasp and broaden their perspective on the context of peace. To further advance this interest OCD provides forum, symposia, dialogues, workshops, seminars, human rights orientation, conflict resolution and peace and prayer rallies. With strong partnership with different international peace organizations OCD aims to provide more effective strategies in campaigning for peace and development.
