Knowledge is power and has been a significant player in the growth and development of the society. Learning and acquiring knowledge is a continuous process and this is possible with an active collaboration between people, educational institutions and industry. Social responsibility, sensitization of students and staff is the key agenda behind all our social initiatives as we are committed to being a socially responsible educational institute. At every level we need to understand and analyse what we learn and its relevance to our future. In our college we have included this process through various activities and channels and attained positive results.The Institutional Social Responsibility & Extension Activities Cell (ISREAC)/ (Unnat Bharat Abhiyan Cell) is of the important initiatives of St. Xavier’s College, Jaipur for students under the guidance of the management of our college. Through ISREAC/UBA we wish to take forward the concept of being sensitive to the needs of the society to the various departments of our college. We as an institution believe that our role as an educator goes beyond by simply imparting knowledge and skills to the students. As active agents of social change, we aim to undertake the challenge of creating socially responsible global citizens. Students enter college at a crucial juncture of their life wherein they embark upon a journey of self-discovery and lifelong learning and this cell ensures a holistic development of a student through community service. The endeavour of ISREAC/UBA would be to make a difference which can in future bring about a greater change in the society.The ISREAC/UBA will provide a platform for our students to explore and pursue their passion through which students can positively impact the society that we live in. The focus will be to enable the students to understand that the contribution of the community is far greater in their lives than their own contribution to the community. In the process, students have the opportunity to discover their individuality, create their own identity, yet remain humble and become selfless. The students are exposed to have first-hand problems and challenges faced by the society. They are sensitized towards these problems so that they will become responsible citizens and serve the society. The emotional, intellectual and social faculties of the learners are developed through these extension activities.
