USFQ students are involved with the community in two main ways: a class directed to volunteerism (it is a 4 credit class) and community work through each academic department through community engagement (vinculación).
As for community work through academic departments, this involvement with the community includes all health clinics and its brigades (dental, health, veterinarian), law services, as well as data compilation for sustainable or health activities.

This credit is also a requirement by the Ecuadorian Higher education accreditation identity SENECYT.
