At Eternal University, special efforts are put in to develop students’ personality through community services. NSS (National Service Scheme) at Eternal University is a voluntary association being run by students themselves under guidance from faculty members. Various NSS camps are organized every year where students undertake various social welfare activities like Tree Plantation and awareness programs on drug de-addiction, AIDS, Swine-flu and campaign for saving water and cleanliness.

The National Service Scheme (NSS) was introduced by the Government of India in the year 1969, and it has evolved ever since. It aims at developing amongst students a sense of participation in the process of nation building through social work. We have presently one self-financed unit of NSS at Eternal University, Baru Sahib, with a sanctioned strength of 100 volunteers. Against this, a total of 70 students have enrolled as volunteers.

The main objectives of National Service Scheme (NSS) are:

  • Understand the community in which they work.
  • Understand themselves in relation to their community.
  • Identify the needs and problems of the community and involve them in problem-solving
  • Develop among themselves a sense of social and civic responsibility.
  • Utilise their knowledge in finding practical solutions to individual and community problems.

The Motto of NSS "Not Me But You", reflects the essence of democratic living and upholds the need for self-less service.
