The Office of Extension Services

BPSU is fortunate to be one of the pioneering institutions in Bataan for community service. BPSU pioneers had taken extension services seriously, intensifying its commitment to communities every year. Men and women, and even students with deep conviction and high integrity rose from their comfort zones with heroic character.

Today’s society has problems as well as any other time in our history. People today go homeless and starve, unemployed, and get sick. Daily we see dramatic scenes of the very people who should be the lighthouses of community service. Our leaders whom should be setting the example of community service for the rest of us to follow are instead riddled with corruption, poor character, and far more concern for themselves than any community they serve. 

Community service in its ideal form is a way of doing something positive for the community. When everything in the community seems to be breaking, families falling apart at the seems, I get upset and I ask myself have we really arrived at a true and lasting definition of what community service really means. The university has helped and empowered many poor residents in various barangays. Very much have we enjoyed providing all sort of services the university can offer for communities in need. We’ve been part of highly organized community services, collaborating with other government agencies, non-government organizations, and local government units. This was what we knew and what we could offer to our immediate community because we had the opportunity.

These are great experiences and we need to see them bloom in small and large communities all across the province, and even beyond. Community service is a positive way of making the community a better place for everyone. "If we can approach community service, and raise the standard so maybe the everyday people can once again rise to the heroic levels that are so badly needed to turn around the world and make it better a better place."

Through the Office of Extension Services, TOGETHER, let us LEAD CHANGE to CHANGE LIVES.
