Student Welfare Office

The Student Welfare Office provides a platform for students to exhibit their skills and talents. It is a forum, where through the mode of cultural activities, like-minded people meet each other, exchange ideas and develop into better human beings.

 1)University Volunteer body

 2) University Cultural Team

The volunteers assist in organizing various events right from Inauguration to Graduation Day and form the “back-bone” of the University. The cultural team, participates in numerous fests, bringing many laurels and are literally the “face” of the University. The University Dance team KALARPANA and the University Choir team always bring life to programmes in the University. Students talented in dance and music can be part of these two wings of the student welfare office. They are always present during inaugural and conclusion of University programs.

Centre for Social Action (CSA)

Centre for Social Action (CSA)is a unique movement, where student communities are sensitised on various issues affecting the poor and marginalized sections of society. This is done so that they can internalize and personalize the issues and contribute to sustainable changes in the lives of the poor and the oppressed. Through such processes of involvement, CSA aims to enable the students to be aware of the social realities around them as well as impart them with ideas of how they can contribute towards the upliftment of unheeded sections.


Our Vision
"Every student is aware, sensitive, empathetic and contributing to sustainable changes in the society"


Our Mission
"CSA is a centre for promoting volunteerism and enabling students to develop as socially responsible citizens through developmental initiatives"


Christ University Trust has established seven special centres to help different stakeholders, prepare people and organizations to the complexities of education in the twenty first century. Each of these centres, with stated objectives, strives to deliver a fuller learning experience. They facilitate a two-way dissemination of information and knowledge between the University and various stakeholders like institutions, organizations, corporate, members of the teaching fraternity, students, and individuals to help them keep abreast with the latest developments in their respective domains.
