THE ICIC PROGRAMS FOR ITS PARTNER COMMUNITIES
AND TARGET GROUPS
ICIC has four partner communities as locations for the implementation of San Beda’s extension and outreach programs. They are: Barangay Tinejero, Pulilan, Bulacan, Barangay Dolores, Taytay, Rizal, Baseco, Tondo and the four barangays under the St. Jude Parish in Manila namely, Barangay, 637, 638, 639 and 640.
To protect the parties involved and define their scope of engagement, Memorandum of Agreements (MOA) or Understanding (MOU) were signed by top school administrators and local leaders and government officials of the areas.
Aside from these communities, ICIC has entered into MOA and MOU with three business corporations (Rags2Riches, Petron Foundation and Apogee Productions), nine government agencies (National Youth Commission, TESDA-Rizal, Department of Education, Department of health, Philippine Blood Center, Bureau of Jail management and Penology (Male and Female Dormitory), Manila City Jail, Brgy. Dolores, Taytay, Rizal, Municipality of Pulilan and the Provincial Government of Laguna), five non-government organizations (Visayan Forum, Childhope Asia, Coalition of Services for the Elderly, Kanlungan ni Maria Domenica, Tahanang Walang Hagdanan), a parish church (National Shrine of St. Jude Thaddeus, Manila) and two Bedan entities (San Beda College Alumni Association and the San Beda College-Benedictine Educational Foundation Inc.).The MOA provided more sites for the immersion and curriculum- based community service for our students and faculty. It also strengthens the networking of the ICIC, and expands its pool of resources.
As a center for community involvement, ICIC serves the Basic Education Department, College of Arts and Sciences, College of Nursing, College of Medicine, College of Law, Graduate School of Business and the Graduate School of Liturgy. Each department has a community outreach manager who coordinates with the ICIC head. There are two social workers and a secretary functioning as office technical support. Currently, ICIC is headed by Dr. James Loreto C. Piscos, and directly reports to the Rector-President.
