Office of Students Activities, Involvement & Leadership


“The Only Real Training for Leadership Is Leadership”
-By Antony Jay

If you want to lead you have to practice leading. Thus it is foremost to provide the students significant amount of experience to work with people and learn from their mistakes which is equally important as classroom experience. PDPU believes in this philosophy and has always fervently guided students to be future leaders. The establishment of an office for Student Activity and Leadership was the initiative towards such development. This helps students to hunt down their treasure of talents and foster their passion and to equip them for future by developing skills like team spirit, leadership, and life skills.

Under the guidance of faculty mentors, three committees are formed by students to look after each, the Social and Cultural, Science and Technical and Sports activities of the university.

Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University maintains a pristine environment blended with modern technologies to enhance the spirit and energy level of all learners and development of life skills to encourage leadership and inspire students to optimize their learning efforts. All the extra -curricular activities take place at the Office of Student Activities, Involvement and Leadership which works with an objective of providing all the students an opportunity to develop themselves in areas of student’s interest thereby developing leadership qualities. The activities at the OSAIL are majorly driven by Student Clubs, Student Chapters of Professional Societies.

The Office of SAL categorizes all student activities into

  • Social and Cultural
  • Science and Technical and
  • Sports
  • Student Chapters

A student committee is formed for each of the said category and faculty in charge is assigned.
