Going by the UPES motto of “UNIVERSITY WITH A PURPOSE”, being alive & sensitive to the fact that it is the largest stakeholder in the eco-system encompassed within a 20 Kms. radius of its campus, the University realizes its responsibilities in contributing towards the rural society in this region and has voluntarily initiated several initiatives to create sustainable societal impacts.

UPES firmly believes that “EDUCATION” and “WOMEN EMPOWERMENT” are the two most powerful tools to transform the societies (especially the rural societies) in India hence our primary focus is on these two areas. The University also recognizes the need to involve its students, faculty & staff to contribute voluntarily in the initiatives.
