Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions


Advocacy projects of DLSU-D underpin the awareness and call for action on important socio-political issues, such as good governance, accountability, justice, and human rights. As an academic institution, these areas are seen as crucial points in which social transformation can be achieved and strong institutions can be built on. Thus, a multi-sectoral committee called STAR (Social Transformation for Advocacy and Reform) is formed to ensure equal opportunities for all sectors to actively participate in advocacy activities.

As part of De La Salle Philippines, DLSU-D actively responds and works closely with the Lasallian Justice and Peace Commission (LJPC) in bringing to the fore important socio-political issues and to call for collective action to seeks to eliminate any form of injustice in the society.

Three pronged formation

Of the many initiatives being done by the University is the formation of its members through three major areas: Campus ministry, Lasallian formation, and Social action/engagement. The celebration of the Season of Creation and Laudato Si Week, International Lasallian Days of Peace, Justice, and Democracy, etc., are some of the activities that promote justice, peace, and integral ecology and encourage active participation in the members of the university.


The SONA SURI featured Lasallian resource persons who provided their insights on the recently concluded State of the Nation address delivered by President Rodrigo Duterte and gave their take the current situation of the country.
