SDG 17 Partnership for the Goals Published by: 0

University’s Direct Involvement in SDG Policy Development

Centurion University collaborates with the national government, regional government, and non-government organizations for SDG policy development. 

During the academic year 2022-23, we initiated a collaboration with Nandankanan Zoological Park, Government of India, encompassing various significant facets. This partnership encompasses a dedicated project focusing on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 13, 14, and 15, which are aimed at addressing environmental sustainability and conservation efforts. Our joint efforts underline our commitment to making meaningful contributions towards achieving these vital SDGs.

During the academic year 2022-23, a significant collaboration was established to address the pressing issue of the endangered pond located in the village of Gopalpur, which happens to be the site of one of our university campuses. This particular pond had deteriorated to a biologically lifeless state primarily as a consequence of wastewater discharge. In a commendable move, the state government of Odisha granted a lease of this pond to our university, entrusting us with the pivotal task of reviving and rejuvenating it. This lease agreement signifies not only our commitment to environmental stewardship but also a partnership that seeks to restore the ecological balance of this vital water body for the benefit of the local community and the ecosystem at large.

During the academic year 2022-23, the University embarked on a collaborative venture with The Orissa State Cooperative Milk Producers Federation. This collaboration involved the operation of their milk and ice cream parlor on our campus, signifying a mutually beneficial partnership. Beyond merely serving dairy products, this arrangement also provides a unique opportunity for our students. It allows them to gain valuable experiential knowledge and skills through internships, enhancing their practical understanding of the dairy industry, and paving the way for future career opportunities in this field. This collaboration exemplifies our commitment to not only facilitating academic learning but also fostering real-world experiences for our students, bridging the gap between theory and practical application.

In a similar vein, the University has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Gopabandhu Academy of Administration, encompassing various collaborative endeavours. Among these collaborations, a noteworthy initiative involves enhancing the skillset of Odisha Finance Service recruits through the University’s Post Graduate Diploma in Financial Management program.
