Rotaract, the youth wing of Rotary International, is a service club for young men and women ages between 18 and 30 who are dedicated to community and international service. Its membership totals over 184,000 in more than 8,000 clubs worldwide. Rotaract clubs are self-governing and self-supporting and can be either university- or community-based. Individual Rotary clubs sponsor Rotaract clubs and offer guidance and support, making the Rotaract clubs true “partners in service” and key members of the family of Rotary. Rotaract provides opportunity for young persons in developing their professional and leadership skills, addressing the needs and concerns of the society through continuous engagements as well as specific programs.
Presently, Rotaract NCU Club boasts of over 100 Rotaractors from all three schools of the university. There is a Board of 10 students with Ms. Shreya Gupta, President Rotaractor and Ms. Tashi Vaish, Secretary Rotaractor at the helm of the affairs. Mr. Subhradipta Sarkar, Assistant Professor (Sr. Scale), School of Law, NCU, is the Faculty Advisor for the club.
From the students’ perspective, such an initiative enhances their social outreach and makes an impact in the society. Besides, emphasizing on the respect for the rights of others, such an association also helps them in enhancing their knowledge and skills which would be helpful in personal development, addressing the physical and social needs of their communities, and promoting better relations between all people worldwide through a framework of friendship and service.
