"Soksay sa Barangay, Barangay sa Soksay" is the umbrella program of the Department of Social Sciences that aims to strengthen the partnership of the department and the local communities of Southern Luzon by providing a lineup of services anchored on the strength and identity of the department. It is a give-and-take relationship where the department responds to calls from local communities by providing them assistance with their needs and problems (Soksay sa Barangay), while the communities also visit the department and the university to share their knowledge with the younger generation in the hopes of sparking interest, discourse, understanding, and appreciation of the condition and heritage of each locality (Barangay sa Soksay). The umbrella program is composed of four programs:  Cultural Mapping, Psychological First Aid, Culture for Development, and Gender Equality and Social Inclusion program.
