NSS (National Service Scheme)
National Service Scheme has been introduced at the University of North Bengal since 1982. Launched in the Mahatma Gandhi Birth Centenary year 1969, as a student youth service programme, National Service Scheme (NSS) aims at arousing social consciousness of the youth with an overall objective of personality development of the students through community service.
Our college has a N.S.S Unit under the care of trained Programme Officer. It undertakes regular social service activities including adult education programs and health camps in nearby villages.
