To endow with the overall development of our students, we at IMS Unison University feel that our students must be equally apprised of their duties and responsibilities to manage social problems and evolve as socially responsible citizens.
A small initiative in this direction is SEVARTH Club- The University Social Responsibility and Community Engagement Club. The initiative is as per the New Education Policy, all the universities should foster community outreach and engagement among students, teachers, and all the stakeholders. SEVARTH Club aims to make students aware and empathise with the sufferings of the poor, marginalised, and underprivileged sections of society for sustainable and inclusive development.
The SEVARTH Club primarily focuses on the below-mentioned agendas:
The purpose of the Village Adoption Activity was to educate and inform the university students about the socioeconomic characteristics of rural communities and the state of sustainable resource use. Along with this, the activity aimed to shift perspectives and aspirations, priorities, and innovative efforts of rural communities (SHGs) to enable and inspire the community to engage in self-help and sustainable development.
To reach the rural masses, train them, and address the lack of skilled workforce in the country, IMS Unison University aimed to make a difference in enhancing the self-employability of the youth and the entire employment scenario of the country through this program.
To make adults and children (residing in the Bhagwan Pur Gram panchayat) aware and condition them to promote anti-plastic behaviour for sustainable development. A Plastic Free Drive was organised on 19th February 2022.
