The Social Development Office is pleased to invite you to this year’s Social Development Week Celebration on January 25-29, 2021 with the theme “Xavier Ateneo: Rising above the Pandemic”.


The annual social development week seeks to highlight the University’s institutional contribution to social development initiatives with and for the larger community as well as the continuing invitation for the whole university community to partake in advancing Xavier Ateneo as a University serving society, bringing science where there is no science, voice where there is little or no voice, and hope amid conditions that need promotion of quality of life.


This year’s SD week celebration will be done virtually through the Social Development (SD) Webinar Series which will focus on topics relevant to the COVID 19 Pandemic.
