NIT Sikkim being an Institute of National Importance under Ministry of Education has been actively participating in building a well-developed community. An ideal community should fulfill all economic, social, material and spiritual needs of each and every one of its members; and meeting this end requires educated, skilled and competent people. As nations race towards creating knowledge-based economies, it has become even more important to equip people with higher education as a means to further enhance the quality of human capital. Resultantly, Institute has to evolve with the needs of the community – through community oriented programmes, teaching-Learning methodology, technologies etc. that can reflect the community’s demands and attitudes.
From the past, Institute has organised several programs in collaboration with the regional stakeholders such as General awareness generation, health camps, blood donation camps, Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, Plantation drive in campus and surroundings, Educational tour and carrier counseling for school students, promotion and motivation for higher and technical studies amongst the school students, Skill development of school drop outs etc.
