The acronym “SACSI” in the Filipino language means “witness”. This is an apt description of what the office is all about. The office serves as a witness to the social realities of the larger society; and being so, convey the facts from the University of Life to the Ateneo academe to develop a sense of social commitment among the students, faculty and staff of our community for a just, humane and God-inspired society.
SACSI stands for Social Awareness and Community Service Involvement. This is the office within the university that serves as the link between the school and the outside communities to complement theories learned in the classroom with the actual realities of life.
As the social involvement arm of the Ateneo de Zamboanga University, it is guided by the principles of academic excellence, socio-political maturity, and spiritual growth. Its primary concern is the holistic formation of the students – to be Men and Women of God, for others.
