Community Engagement Center
To coordinate and direct activities concerning learning through service, the Community Engagement Center was established in 1999. The center facilitates community-based learning by identifying various community organizations, microenterprises, agencies, and corporations with social responsibility initiatives whose needs can be addressed through the courses offered at Sagrado. Likewise, it supports the development of courses that have the component of community bonding and establishes the links between the community organizations and the classes that participate in this approach. The Community Outreach Center is now a Program within Centro Sofía in the area of social action.
From August 1998 to June 2015, more than four hundred (400) organizations have received services from the linked courses. In the last seven years, 3,815 students have developed 657 community service projects to benefit hundreds of entities without profit, social microenterprises, or geographic communities.
