“If love is the only way to create a world in harmony, love should emanate from equality for all, not only in education but also in becoming active disciplines in witnessing faith, hope, and love for all”.

The integration of GAD into the vision of St. Mary’s College of Tagum, Inc. is articulated as:

‘True to our Ignacian Marian identity, we empower and nurture learners to become ethical and service-oriented and engaged citizens toward inner and social transformation for the common good.’

  • Grow deeper in discernment and interior freedom and be a prophetic witness to faith, hope, and love in today’s world; and
  • Build up resources and capabilities and create new paradigms to address social harmony towards a dignified life.
