Are you a forward-thinker interested in bridging the gap between your vision and the reality? Aside from being the home organization of Development Studies majors, the Development Society of the Ateneo is also open to development-minded individuals with a desire to ignite meaningful change in Philippine society.

This year, the organization aims to tap into the growing public interest in development by continuing to establish solid partnerships with development-oriented institutions and incubating efforts to address pressing issues in the local, national, and global settings.

DevSoc Ateneo presents concrete programs and opportunities for students to become active players in the ongoing process of changing the world for the better.


We envision an organization of development innovators, leading the Ateneo community towards the proactive pursuit of sustainably uplifting the lives of the marginalized, through social involvement and the amelioration of poverty, in accordance with the Atenean value of being persons for others.


It is our mission to hone the passions of our members, equipping them with skills through academic assistance, career and networking opportunities and exposure to social realities and development innovations, enabling them to be with the Ateneo community in becoming life-long agents of change.
