NSS/IPSSR
(National Service Scheme/IPSians social responsibility)

Social Responsibility is not just an annual activity calendar or giving some donation, it is much larger that helps in building a sense of responsibility in the young minds towards society.

The main objective of our department is to inculcate the social and moral value, maturity and habit to return to the society not just in terms of funds, but also love, care, respect and gratitude. The idea is to help the volunteers to carry these beliefs and values as they move in life. College life is of paramount importance as it shapes the individual and the citizen. The experience of social work and social responsibility, the habit of giving to the society lays a strong foundation to build a strong inclusive society and nation. It is just like creating a beautiful garden of a social environment by planting a sapling of ethical values. Learning these important aspects through fun, on the job activities, visits, being part of organizing events and connecting closely with the less privileged helps the students to understand the other world of deprived and build a deep sense of attitude to help and support the less fortunate ones.

The whole programs was organized under the guidance of Principal Mr. Sanat Vyas. The main purpose of which was to end the taboos of periods. Menstruation is usually known as Periods, Menses, Monthly and Masik Dharm in Hindi. In various regions it is known differently by the natives. Generally, periods is a subject where maximum people hesitate to talk about. We live in a society where this subject is prohibited and treated as a stigma! So the question arises, is it too tedious to eradicate this taboo ? We believe we collectively can make a society where women can live normally during menstruation. Therefore, we run a menstrual hygiene campaign and encourage young girls to talk about periods freely and also take care of proper hygiene. https://www.aninews.in/news/business/business/ips-academy-organized-a-menstrual-hygiene-campaign-for-women-safety20220422183307/ https://youtu.be/igEgGWKfeKI

Life without water is infeasible on any planet. No creature on earth can survive without water. Therefore, we at IPSA try to make available water for all the birds and animals, who are residing in the campus. Water arrangement is usually done before the summer strikes.

It is the duty of every private institution to cooperate with the government organizations around it, the government helps us in many ways, so why not help their organizations.

Green campus

Because a single tree plays so many roles like it provides Oxygen, maintains the level of groundwater, provides shelter to many people and animals too. A green campus well-planned and well- managed, is more resilient, sustainable in terms of livelihood improvement. Increasing pollution decreases the availability of natural resources and also increases the frequency of climate changes. Urbanization is an invitation to a drastic change in the environment.

Correct placement of trees around the campus can reduce the need for air conditioning by 30 percent also it will reduce the chances of winter heating bills.
