Namrup College tries to sensitize their students and employees to the constitutional obligations.

Every year our college organizes students’ union election and forms a student’s union. The members of which participate in many decision-making processes of the institution. Apart from that, many departments form student club and takes many decisions after coming to a consonance with their respective students. In morning assembly, all students sing the National Anthem and State Song together and take oath of the duties to be fulfilled as a good and responsible citizen. The university, at the beginning of the year provides a holiday list divided in general holiday and restricted holiday lists. These lists are made considering all the caste and religion where the employees have the right to choose the holiday they needed from the restricted holiday list. These holiday lists are also followed in our college and as it have employees of different religion and cultural background. Thus, the institution gives liberty to the employees to choose from the holiday lists as required.

In Namrup College, students from different religion, caste and cultural background comes together and therefore posses’ different dress, economic condition, mother tongue, beliefs etc where a vast difference comes in between. As our institution believes in equity and respect all the religions and provide equal opportunity. Therefore, to remove such differences and bring equality in every aspect, the institution takes necessary steps so as to set an example like having one uniform for all the students, gives scholarship on the basis of caste and merit, hostel facility, follow the reservation system etc. Even in group discussion, the teachers groups the students accordingly including different religion, status and caste in one and are asked to complete the task in a group where they could communicate and understand each other despite their different backgrounds.

In order to promote awareness and equal rights of communal harmony, Namrup College organizes events like Independence Day, republic day, constitution day, Gandhi jayanti and workshops on equal rights among students and employees to stand united. The college curriculum also plays a vital role to promote moral values, rights, duties and responsibilities among students.
