In keeping with the goals of the college, the Social Awareness Programme seeks to sensitise students and give them a deeper awareness of the social realities of the country. The aim of the programme is to create a sense of social responsibility in the students and to motivate them to reach out to those in need. Students receive specific orientation on the field they choose to work in. Field trips and visits to NGOs, Government offices/schools are also organized for the students according to the needs of the option chosen. These visits give students a deeper and more personal understanding of the needs and problems of various marginalized and underprivileged sections of society.
Service Learning enables students, as growing individuals, to look at themselves, their capacities and the roles they play in society. It is based on a mutual relationship where learning reinforces and strengthens service and service enriches and expands the boundaries of learning. It is aimed at bridging the gap between education, knowledge and its relevance, and applying classroom learning to real life.
