The Social Being
Every oraganization has a human side. It is equally responsible for the welfare of the people, society and the country at large. CUSAT has outlined its own role as a benign social citizen and offers many concessions for the backward, the physically handicapped, the underprivileged and poor in the society. Opening up floodgates of opportunity for people whose sole assets are their intelligence, acumen and enterprise. Only thing that they need is an opportunity to show their excellence. Unfettered by financial and socio-economic equations and based only on merit, both economic and social. For them CUSAT has scholarships, reservations, financial aids and endowments. With a glow in the heart and a prayer on the lips the CUSAT family is proud to discharge its duty as a social being.
