ADDU / Ateneo de Davao University
Davao City Philippines

As a Catholic and Jesuit institution, the Ateneo de Davao University is guided by and seeks to articulate a living tradition of transformative education. All of our undertakings are infused with a philosophy that faith, knowledge, and the promotion of social justice are intrinsically related. This tradition is lived in that it elicits participation and engenders transformation. Transformative education, therefore, is inherently experiential; a way of navigating the world with conviction to understand and participate in making it a better place in solidarity with others. This is why Ateneo de Davao’s thrust for internationalization is greatly invested in experiential learning. Here, students are empowered to encounter a spirit of transformation and cultural responsibility in their engagement with local communities and the various peoples of Mindanao.

As the Ateneo de Davao University prepares for its 75th Year, it moves forward to much greater service through AFIRE— transformative administration and services, integral formation, excellent instruction, robust research and publication, as well as vibrant engagement and advocacy, all informed by Jesuit ideals of finding God in all things and working for God’s greater glory.
