Present Committee at the Maharaja Sayajirao University Union:

During the period of Covid-19, when there was no way to hold student elections and have their representatives at the union. Dr. Reena Bhatia, the President of the Maharaja Sayajirao University Union, came up with an initiative of a volunteering program for the students to serve the fellow students of the university with the below given thought at foresight.

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”

230 volunteers from various faculties of our university registered towards this initiative and finally around 100+ student volunteers worked towards the union's listed objectives. Under her direction, presently we have three strong volunteer teams working for the institution with one team leader and two communication leaders for each team, and multiple team members.
