The University of the Philippines launches its Public Service website to promote UP’s various forms of public service initiatives such as community and volunteerism projects. The website (http://publicservice.up.edu.ph) reflects UP’s commitment to its role as a public service university and in ensuring that its extension work and expertise are available to the general public.
The website houses the Catalogue of Institutional Public Service, a directory of all the extension services offered by UP units across the system. The UP College of Law Office of Legal Aid’s Clinical Legal Education Program, UP Los Baños’ Veterinary Medicine Anti-Rabies Drive and UP Mindanao’s Livelihood programs for the Indigenous People in UP Laak Land Reservation are some of UP’s major public service initiatives featured on the website.
It also showcases local scholarly works such as Public Service Reports, the Public Service Handbook as well as related informational resources such as the conference proceedings of the 1st Colleges and Universities Public Service Conference (CUPSCon) and the 3rd AsiaEngage Regional Conference.
For more information about the public service initiatives of the University, please contact the Padayon Public Service Office at [email protected] or call (632) 981-8500 local 4256.
