Directorate of Student Welfare

An Overview

 

DSW is the meeting point for students of UAP so that they can participate in various co and extra-curricular activities of the University. The primary objective of the DSW is to emphasize the wholeness of the university experience through the synchronized development of body, mind, and spirit. It emphasizes enhancing the student experience through “outside of classroom learning” and through various co-curricular activities. UAP has large numbers of students’ clubs; some are based in the departments which reflect departmental specialization, while there are central clubs that are directly managed by the DSW.

Clubs are supervised by advisers, who are faculty members of the UAP and takes a keen interest in the club activities. The central clubs give opportunities to students to discover and hone their true potentials. At DSW, students are able to develop their organizational, management and leadership skills. The club activities often touch the lives of individuals outside the university and help enhance the image of the university before the society and the nation.
