Social Responsibility

The Study Program on University Social Responsibility was created by the UdeC Decree Number 2002-069 with the purpose of formalizing objectives, activities and continuing with the effort in expanding the proper University Social Responsibility. This program arose in accordance with the priority thematic area announced in the Strategic Plan of the University of Concepcion, which is: “social and human growth aimed at improving the quality of life and reducing poverty levels”, along with fundamental challenges in the professional foundation or growth of students. These challenges refer to the establishment of creativity and innovation processes; to create capacities to gain access to knowledge; and the ability to analyze and understand the present society. This social sensitivity is accomplished by a basic and transversal education in science and humanism.
