Social Responsibility

What is it?

Social service is an educational model component that seeks to promote the development of competences, especially the transversal one that develops the ethical and citizen commitment (training in human sense) from the experiential learning in activities and service projects to the society.

It is also a training experience that strengthens the development of students' graduation skills, putting personal talent and professional excellence at the service of others and contributing, from the professional field to the generation of proposals for attention, reduction and solution to the social problematic the country is facing.

The social service is a qualification requirement established in the 24th article of the General Education Law and in the regulatory law of the 5th article of the Mexican Political Constitution and applies to all the Tec de Monterrey campuses at a professional level. It is also a qualification requirement to fulfill at least 480 hours of social service and a Social commitment of the students of Tec de Monterrey, since 78% of graduates perform more than 480 of social service and on average a student performs more 560 hours throughout his career.

It is a requirement for all of our students to line up with the General Social Service Policies and Regulations.
