We at UDEM believe that we find a sense of transcendence when we put our talents in the service of others.
The mission of the “El Centro para la Solidaridad y la Filantropía” (Center for Solidarity and Philanthropy) (CESYF) is to afford the UDEM community the opportunity to develop a conscience and social responsibility by participating in community action programs oriented to conferring dignity to people and to their social mobility, thus finding a sense of transcendence in the service of others.
- Formation of conscience and social responsibility
This implies sensitizing the university community on social conscience and promoting it among its members, based on the development of critical judgment and concrete proposal that benefit the communities in greatest need.
- Dignifying the person and social mobility
The programs developed by the Center for Solidarity and Philanthropy respond to the need to promote the dignity of the person among members of the community through the acknowledgment of their potential as agents of change and their commitment to the pursuit of the common good.
A sense of transcendence in the service of others

We believe that community development is achieved through systematic global action. Therefore, the Center for Solidarity and Philanthropy is an active member of:
