CEC has four (4) partner communities as locations for the implementation of San Beda’s extension and outreach programs. They are: Local Government of Barangay Dolores, Taytay Rizal, District 6, Manila, Sitio Pactil, Bauko, Mountain Province, Municipality of Pulilan, Bulacan.

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 CEC, and expands its pool of resources.
