NSS Bureau, Berhampur University

NSS Bureau, Berhampur University was established in the year 1970-71 and governed all affiliated college under the University. In the beginning, NSS Bureau started with 300 NSS volunteers distributed in 06 colleges. At present, it has been enlarged with 11250 NSS volunteers composed of 255 units (both boys and girls) spread over 110 colleges. During last three years, units have been opened in different Engineering and Technical Colleges in this region. National Service Scheme is a student-centered programme and it serves as a significant component in higher education. It includes the spirit of nobility among students and volunteers with academic interest. Through various social activities and programmes, students and teachers are involved in promoting community interaction and social upliftment. Thereby it adds an extension dimension to higher evaluation system and orients the student youths to vocalize community service. Every year, on 24th September, ‘NSS Day’ is celebrated organizing different programmes and activities.

Generally, there are two types of programmes organized in NSS (a) Regular Camping Programme during weekend holidays and Sundays and hourly programme post-working hours of the day. (b) Special Camping Programme during vacation particularly, in Summer, Puja and X-Mas. Since Medical and Engineering Colleges are involved in the programme and they do not have any specific vacation in order to carry out the Special Camps, they are being allowed to conduct special camps during the period of interval between two semesters. Besides, Inter College Camp, Disaster Management Training Camp, Youth Leadership Training Camp, Adventure Programme, Youth Exchange Programme, National Integration Camp, Youth Skill Development Training Programme and so on are organized.

NSS office is functioning in a separate building of the University, having well-furnished rooms like Store Room, Record Room, Guest Room etc. Computers and audio-visual facility are also provided to the NSS wing. The office is running with one Programme Coordinator along with 02 Assistants and 02 supporting staff.
