Lasallian Sustainable Development Program (LSD)

LSD partners with academic and non-academic units of the University in implementing community engagement projects that seek to improve the lives of people, especially the poor. It accomplishes this by facilitating collaboration among DLSU Units, People’s Organizations, Non-Government Organizations, Local Government Units, and other like-minded institutions in each marginalized community it partners with.

EnviSaGe (Lasallian Environmental Sustainability and Governance)

Initiative to respond to the challenges in SDGs: 
SDG 6: Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all. 
SDG 11: Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable. 
SDG 12: Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns. 
SDG 13: Take urgent action to combat climate. 
SDG 14: Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas, and marine resources for sustainable development. 


  • Awareness and capacity building of communities 

  • Collaboration with private and public sector 

  • Policies and regulations 

  • Engagement of the DLSU community

L-ARAL (Lasallian Accessible, Relevant and Alternative Learning)

“Everyone has the right to education” 
SDG 4: Ensure Inclusive and Equitable Quality Education and Promote Lifelong Learning Opportunities for all. 
University-Community Engagement, in collaboration with the Research Centre: COSCA (Centre for Social Concern and Action). 
L-ARAL is a positive response to the challenge of having an inclusive and equitable education in the country that promotes lifelong learning through a multi-sectoral development approach. 

  • Putting in place a full learning year (10 months) implementation of the ALS Program with a Post-A & E Exam mechanism to sustain the learning process. 

  • Setting up an inclusive and equitable mechanism to integrate continuing education and scholarship opportunities. 

  • Establishing an innovative mechanism that will lead to capacitating of Empowered Lasallian Youth (ELYs) to livelihood and social enterprise opportunities.

L - HEARTS (Lasallian Health Education, Accessible Resources and Training Services Project)

Based on the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Constitution which states that “good health is a state of complete physical, social and mental well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”. 
University-Community Engagement, in collaboration with the Research Centre: COSCA (Centre for Social Concern and Action). 
The HEARTS Project focuses on preventive healthcare and the family as the primary unit of intervention. Its key elements are the following:  Community Capacity Building, Public and Private Partnerships, Preventive Healthcare Advocacy. 
SDG 3: Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages. 
SDG 5: Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls 
SDG 16: Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable, and inclusive institutions at all levels
