    The Vice President was in South Korea for an event.

    At 10:40 am, she attended the Social Innovation Forum in Hanyang University, Seoul. The forum gathered 60 of the top government bodies, corporates, and university leaders in Seoul to learn about how innovations can contribute to sustainable development in the Asia Pacific Region. The forum served as a venue to discuss the role of academic institutions in cultivating students to become global leaders from the standpoint of diverse stakeholders. The Vice President delivered a lecture on Social Responsibility of Philippine Universities.

    In her lecture, the Vice President discussed how Philippine universities no longer solely rely on theoretical approach to mold students but now, they also integrate practical approaches to give students the skills to immerse themselves in communities. Through this, students are given the chance to experience real life situations of other people. “As you can see, the academe has evolved from being an institution that provides learning within the four walls of the classroom to a laboratory of innovative ideas and solutions that empower people, especially those at the fringes of society. By intentionally linking courses with community experiences, the academe can more powerfully shape the personal, professional, and civic development of their students. We need to start their awakening about the realities of the world while within the school system, not when they start working, because let’s face it: 20 to 30 years from now, they will be the ones who will make history for the community.”
