De La Salle Dasmariñas' Mission Jubilee Celebration Year 2019

De La Salle Dasmariñas celebrates Lasallian Mission Jubilee Year 2019 with different activities anchored among international students with different culture held on February 11 -16, 2019 at De La Salle Medical and Health Sciences Institute, Dasmariñas, Cavite City. 

De La Salle University-Dasmariñas is an institution guided by the values of faith, zeal for service and communion in the mission which is part and parcel of the Lasallian brand of education throughout the world.

The University takes the cudgels in promoting and supporting various advocacies that play an important role in addressing issues being faced by the community and society by encouraging students to become active agents of positive change.

DLSU-D believes that education should not end within the four corners of the classroom and instead, extend beyond the academics for learners to understand their role in their families, communities, their localities, and their country

5. International Food Festival

This International Food Festival is a gastronomic feast for those who have diverse palates! The international students cooked and presented their favorite dishes from their own country so that their friends and fellow students can enjoy their favorites too.

6. Lasalyanong Rehabilitasyon

A special activity during that week, we witnessed Lasalyanong Rehabilitasyon (TheraFree) last February 15, 2019 by College of Rehabilitation Sciences. 

DLSMHSI CRS is a strong advocate for the empowerment and quality of life of Persons with Disabilities especially the children and integrates it in its student and faculty development programs. It hones the members of its academic community (e.g. faculty, staff and students) to community service as part of its educational and training so as to help aid the Philippine society in bridging the gap between the needed rehabilitation services at the community level and the rendering of quality care and consultancy by qualified rehabilitation services professionals (e.g. Physiatrists, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists and Speech and Language Pathologists).

It is the pioneering College that opened the first Early Intervention Outreach Facility in the Philippines (DJPRES, 2014) for Children with Disabilities where a partnership model between a tertiary level education institution (De La Salle Medical and HSI) and public education elementary school works together to address the gap in rehabilitation services for the poor children with disabilities in the Philippines.

It also embraces service to the community by rendering free wheelchair assessment and prescription to indigent members of the community where free wheelchairs are issued through the sponsorship of Latter Day Saints Charities (LDSC). It boasts of 4 out of 5 (in the Philippines) Advance Wheelchair Specialists certification of its faculty and intermediate and basic certification as wheelchair clinicians of almost all of its faculty members.

De La Salle University Dasmariñas has institutionalized efforts to live out its vocation to serve. With programs and activities targeted towards promoting social consciousness, DLSU-D encourages students, faculty and staff to work together to bring about the meaningful impact to the world we live in.
