Bharatiya Chhatra Sansad
Bharatiya Chhatra Sansad (BCS) is an apolitical platform on which students from all ideologies-political, religious, sectarian or otherwise-assemble to voice their opinions. It seeks to transform the outlook of young minds for their involvement and access in societal and rational causes for nurturing the dreams and legitimate aspirations of young and resurgent faces of India for strengthening the foundation of Indian democratic leadership. It imparts practical leadership training to prepare the youth for future leadership. It is a truly apolitical outfit and does not engage in any mainstream political activity. This mission is supported by Legislative Assemblies, Parliament Affairs Ministries and Youth Ministries of various State Governments.
National Teachers' Congress
National Teachers’ Congress or NTC is the first of its kind multidisciplinary platform for higher education teachers from India and across the World. It goes beyond being an academic conference and facilitates sharing of Interdisciplinary Knowledge through Teacher-to-Teacher Connect. India has a rich legacy of ancient Guru- Shishya bonding for ages, by virtue of which it has produced the greatest teachers of unimpeachable integrity, who were not just intellectual giants but also provided moral and intellectual leadership of a rare quality to our country. They were widely loved and respected as their teaching was infused with a high degree of idealism, passion and selfless service. To strengthen this bond further, NTC is taking strides ahead.
National Women's Parliament
National Women’s Parliament or NWP is a platform to encourage and enable the social, political and economic empowerment of women in all strata of the society to establish a connect between women from diverse backgrounds like politics, social sector, education, sports, industry, media, cinema, arts & culture, judiciary and students by providing them a platform for deliberations, discussions, debates, mentoring and for evolving reciprocal and continuing engagement on all women centric issues and challenges.
Rashtriya Sarpanch Sansad
Rashtriya Sarpanch Sansad has been founded as an academic endeavour, a platform for inviting dialogues, exchange of information, new learnings and discussions on a wide variety of subjects related to local self-government. This is to provide solutions to the core problem i.e. even after seven decades of independence, several thousands of villages of our country are devoid of even the basic infrastructure for day to day living. Most of our villages today require a holistic development.
To sensitize students about the issues at the very core of rural areas and groom them for leadership role in the future, Rural Immersion is a part of the academic curriculum in MIT WPU wherein students work in various villages to interact at the grass root level with villagers and Sarpanches for understanding numerous issues faced by our rural folk, deliberating through dialogues and suggesting effective solutions.
Sarpanch Sansad is a step forward in the same direction and has empowerment of Sarpanchs as its objective. The platform involves open dialogues between all its participants, affords everyone an opportunity to learn what positive initiatives and problem-solving steps are being taken by others in their respective areas, showcase their own achievements, and enrich themselves with knowledge sharing. This is a nonpolitical platform and forms part of the CSR.
