THE HOLY Angel University in Angeles, Pampanga made a milestone when it became a member of the Uniservitate Network.

The esteemed international organization promotes Service-Learning within Catholic Higher Education Institutions to drive systemic change and foster agents of social transformation.

It aims to institutionalize SL to actualize the mission of CHEIs — the development of well-rounded individuals dedicated to social betterment in line with the Church’s social teachings.

The university emphasized that joining the international consortium highlights its commitment to holistic education and exceptional SL projects.

“HAU’s entry into this network marks a significant step forward in its mission to integrate community engagement deeply into its educational ethos,” it said.

“HAU’s application was notably strengthened by its robust portfolio of SL initiatives that have made measurable impacts within the community. The University’s long-standing dedication to service and academic excellence was highlighted as a critical factor in its selection, demonstrating HAU’s role as an exemplar of service learning,” it added.

As a member of the Uniservitate network, HAU will enjoy numerous benefits, including joining a worldwide learning community of SL practitioners and researchers, access to specialized training resources, and participation in the prestigious Uniservitate Award and the call for Small Research Grants.

The membership will also further the school’s reach through exclusive global and regional meetings and collaborations with CHEI authorities and community engagement leaders.
