The University's Department of Community Service and Awareness is committed to fostering a culture of civic engagement, capacity building, awareness, and community service among students, faculty, and staff. Our aim is to empower students to become informed and proactive citizens, advocating for social justice, equality, and sustainable development.

We organize and support various initiatives aimed at addressing the needs and challenges, aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), of diverse communities, including environmental conservation, health education, cultural diversity, and human rights. Moreover, we foster a culture of learning and collaboration among our staff, volunteers, and partners by offering training, mentorship, and networking opportunities.
