The vision of The Millennium Universal College (TMUC) is to become an internationally recognized college that contributes towards the development of nation through excellence in education and research. It articulates the desire to contribute in nation building. Youth is a major population of the nation and according to their capabilities and effort they play their part in building a better nation and realizing the sense of being responsible citizen. This also brings a positive impact in the society where individuals not just commit to help but also they are professionally grooming themselves and learning the skill and knowledge which could be implemented further.
TMUC aims to produce young qualified professionals so that when they step out in the world of opportunities, they are groomed for to take up challenges and progress ahead. Thus, it is imperative that our learners indulge in the Community Service Programmes (CSP) which help them articulate their personality and give back to the society. The TMUC CSP comprises of the following components:
- Implementation Methodology
Following are the prescribed objectives of CSP at TMUC:
- To increase the exposure of our learners to work for non–profit sector, which helps them in character building and makes them professionally profound.
- To develop the sense and traits of a responsible citizen in our learners.
- To groom learner’s personality for their professional life ahead.
- To capitalize the opportunity of contributing in the socio-economic uplift of the country by focusing on the under privileged sections of the society.
In order to achieve the aims and objectives of TMUC CSP following methodology has been designed. Various steps need to be taken in order to reach the prescribed objectives:
- Participation in the CSP program is mandatory for learners from all programs.
- Learners will have to complete 40 hours of internships with social sector organizations to be able to acquire bonafide letter, health certificate or clearance.
- Preferably, the learner should complete their internship programme in summer holidays, so that their regular classes are not disturbed.
- A transfer learner is also liable to follow the same rules as a regular learner.
- Community support work polishes learner’s skills and coaches them for professional life. This will not just help the under privileged people but also motivate and provoke them to continue helping the needy.
- Internship programme may benefit by leading the learner to a job with the same organization in the longer run.
- On successful completion of the CSP internship the learners will get two certificates; one from the respective NGO and another from TMUC. This will be a great opportunity for learners to secure jobs in their social sector.
