“The only real training for leadership is leadership”
-by Antony Jay
If you want to lead you have to practice leading, classroom experience isn’t nearly as valuable as actually leading people and learning from your mistakes. PDPU believes in this philosophy and has always fervently guided students to be future leaders and entrepreneurs. The formation of a Student Activity and Leadership Committee was the first step in this development. Under the guidance of faculty mentors, three committees were formed by students to look after the Social and Cultural, Science and Technical and Sports activities of the university.
The leaders always shape the civilization. The culture is fashioned by the presence of cream of the crop. The Social and Cultural Committee of PDPU has energetically upheld the various aspects of society and culture. The committee coordinates the yearly activities of various clubs.
Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University believes in creating a pristine environment blended with modern technologies to enhance the spirit and energy level of all learners and inspire them to optimize their learning efforts. All the non academic activities are mentioned take place at the Office of Student Activities and Leadership which works with a objective of providing all student at university to develop themselves in extra circular activities there by develop leadership qualities. The activities at the OSAL are majorly driven by Student Clubs, Student Chapters of Professional Societies.
All the clubs are proposed by student along with a Faculty mentor, on the approval of the club from OSAL, the clubs does various activities all round the year.
