Institutional Network for Social Action

The Institutional Network for Social Action (INSA) is Miriam College’s center for volunteerism and social development.  INSA’s role is to intensify volunteerism that is expertise-based and that is contributing to social development.  INSA acts a “broker-mediator” in bringing the expertise and services of Miriam College to poor communities and marginalized groups, while at the same time making these as opportunities for students, teachers and staff to learn meaningfully in the process.

Miriam College, through INSA continues to work in solidarity with the poor and in partnership with civil society groups in bringing about justice and peace in our society.
