This course is designed to develop leaders with grassroots orientation and a deep sense of service to the people, particularly to the least, the last and the lost in our society and leaders who are committed to the task of social transformation rooted in our Filipino spirituality. It is aimed at integrating theory and practice towards transformative politics, servant leadership and spiritual governance that would allow for greater people’s participation in politics and governance.

As a graduate study, it also aims to build the students’ capabilities for theoretical studies and empirical research to make the programs more intellectually robust and more firmly grounded in documented experiences of the people through Phenomenological Research. While it is focused on developing leaders for social transformation, it is also the objective of the Course, in the process, to develop communities or staging areas throughout the country for developing Transformational Politics and Transformational Political  Leadership.
