Saint Louis University – SLU
Saint Louis University (SLU) is a Catholic institution of higher learning. It was founded by the CICM Philippine Province as one effective means of evangelization to be fully integrated with the Church’s educational vision. In order to realize the vision of SLU, the schools are committed to instruction, research, and community service. Such activities are oriented towards the promotion of human dignity and happiness which leads to the development of the total person who is able to take up one’s responsibilities in the Church and in the world. Each member of the school community is fully aware of one’s responsibility to reach out to the marginalized and to discover with them the impact of the Gospel on social reality, on justice, and on solidarity.
