in our Innovation for Inclusion

“Alon!” the Benilde exhibit features surfers from six surfing camps located all over the country, holding in their hands the scourge of our beaches, rivers, and oceans – plastic. Distributed everywhere as product packaging, it is non-biodegradable, kills fish and marine animals, chokes and pollutes our waters, all in the name of convenience.

Catapult new ideas that improve the lives of the people.

Innovation for inclusion is the backbone of Benilde’s existence. Find out how you can take part in our noteworthy special projects.

Winner of the 2020 Best Film for Science & Education at the London International Film Festival, it was also nominated Best Foreign Language Documentary and Best Director for Foreign Language Documentary.

CIE’s mandate is to make Benilde an inclusive place for students. We do this by working with associates, parents, community partners, and other stakeholders to ensure that we reduce the barriers (i.e. governance, academic, and social) that may be experienced within our campus and community. Our primary directive is providing support services to students with specific education needs and other physical and sensorial disabilities in the areas of learning and socialization. We work with academic administrators and faculty to ensure that we are able to provide reasonable accommodations to our students to bring them from application to graduation and assist as well in their placement and employment. CIE works at building an awareness of, and sensitivity towards, diverse individuals in our community and creating and sustaining partnerships related to inclusive education.
