Extension and Community Outreach Services (ECOS) Services



            Adopt-A- Barangay project is a community based rehabilitation plan based from the criteria and guidelines set forth by the City Social Welfare and Development (CSWD) office and the Association of Barangay Captains in the City of Baguio. Once identified, the prospective barangay through its officials will be presented a plan of activity based from the result of a need assessment to be conducted in the prospected barangay.


            The University of Baguio, through Extensions and Community Outreach Services office helped residents of Barangays Irisan, San Luis, Loakan Proper, Sto. Tomas Proper and currently in partnership with Barangays Lucnab to be empowered in order to develop sustainable means of living.



Adopt-A-School Program was established through RA 8525 pursuant to Adopt-a-School Act of 1998. It aims to create multiple partnerships with the business sector, foundations, non-government organizations and individuals to team-up with the Department of Education (DepEd) in providing the needed assistance and service to public schools.

            As a response to this, ECOS volunteers join forces in empowering the student beneficiaries of an identified area, considered as in need of services and assistance. As a result, the University of Baguio, through ECOS adopted Alejo Pacalso Mamorial National High School in Tuding, Benguet, Lindawan National High School and Lindawan Elementary School both in Barangay Lucnab and currently looking forward to adopt more public schools in Baguio City and Benguet province.




            Adopt-A-Park program is aimed at protecting and enhancing the City of Baguio’s parks, museums and open spaces by utilizing volunteer support from the university, and educating students and residents as well about the importance of our parks, museums and open spaces.


            Pursuant to RA 9512 s. 2008 otherwise known as National Environmental Awareness and Education Act of 2008, the program aims further to instill to the community it serves the University’s commitment to environmental protection and promote balanced healthful ecology “in accord with the rhythm and harmony of nature.”


Special Projects


          Aside from the main project of ECOS under the UB Cares Program, which focuses on community/school development and services to the barangays and institutions in need, it also accommodates invitational activities sanctioned by the guidelines set forth by the University and ECOS office in order to ensure delivery of quality service to the beneficiaries. It does not promise automatic solution to problems but initiates positive change to pave the way for possible solutions.


To ensure high percentage of success in carrying its activities, ECOS identified key areas to focus with in order to maximize its resources. To address this goal, the different schools and departments are clustered according to their areas of specialization to address better the different concerns under their group.
