It is part of our curriculum that all students of Centurion University of Technology and Management will now be required to participate in the Culture, Sports, and Responsibility (CSR) program during their studies at CUTM w.e.f. 2011-12 academic year. The program gives students an opportunity to learn from the experience of doing real tasks beyond the classroom, related to Culture (student life/creative pursuits), Sports (activities for Physical Fitness) and Responsibility (activities for the benefit of the community or the environment). Each student is required to complete a total of 30 hours of CSR activities each academic year*. This should include 10 hours of Culture, 10 hours of Sports and 10 hours of Responsibility. After completing of an activity, the Faculty supervisor must sign this record booklet. Only students who have completed the required hours (each activity will be minimum of 1 hour and maximum of 8 hours) of CSR, are eligible to pass that academic year. At the end of the Centurion University degree, the CSR grade will be reflected in the final Grade Sheet and the student will receive the CSR Booklet listing all of the CSR activities he has completed. This can be used for his/her Resume. Information about student clubs, meetings, including details of Faculty-In-Charge, their contact, and CSR updates are displayed on the CSR Activity Information Board on campus. Student can ask any faculty member to supervise the activity and sign the CSR Booklet indicating that the hours have been completed.
