The University of Mumbai, on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti organized the event – Mumbai University New Initiative Joint Action Now (MUNIJAN) in Mumbai. The objective of this initiative is to bring about positive changes in society by involving students in a series of constructive and socially responsible activities. MUNIJAN rests on the belief that effective transformation in society can be achieved through collective efforts to inspire, support and serve consciously.
This initiative, which began in 2010, provides an avenue for future leaders from management institutes to innovate sustainable solutions for social issues that plague the nation. It will help in shaping the students not only as leaders of tomorrow but also as globally responsible citizens.
