National Service Scheme (NSS) is a noble academic extension programme envisioned at national level, with a view to bring our academic institutions closer to the society. It is an educational programme for personality development of the students through community service. The basic concept of National Service Scheme is to give an extended dimension to the Higher Education system and orient the students to community service while they are studying in an educational institution. This is to create social consciousness among students, by establishing a meaningful linkage between the campus and the community, especially the rural community. The cardinal principle of the programme is that it is organised by the students themselves and both students and teachers through their combined participation in social service, get a sense of involvement in the task of national development. Fulfilling this vision of extending social services of the academic community, the National Service Scheme of St. Teresa’s College has been playing a pivotal role since its inception in forming a well organised linkage between the campus and the community and it has grabbed many honors for its outstanding performance.
