Sustainable Development Initiative

The rationale for Sustainable development initiatives comes from the internationalization strategy whereby University of Management & Technology assumes its responsibility for inculcating a sense of global responsibility into its students that goes beyond the borders of social class, religion, ethnicity and race. The six main pillars of Sustainable Development initiative and all the sub programs revolve around community development, Personal and professional development and character building of the Students. Through different community development projects and activities students are engaged as contributors towards the overall development of the society and as advocates for a sustainable future. 


To foster a generation of responsible youth, ensuring meaningful and consistent involvement of students in community services. The vision is to channelize the positive energies of students into a sustainable model for volunteerism, community services, and socially responsible youth leadership.

In Developing countries like Pakistan, the importance of role of academia in providing assistance to social sector organizations cannot be over-emphasized. There is utmost need to develop linkages among universities and social sector organizations for undertaking joint initiatives for the community development programs. Accordingly, the office of internationalization at UMT aims at partnering with Non Profit organizations working in Pakistan, and facilitating its students in undertaking community work as volunteers. This engagement of students will be considered as part of their degree requirements. We are confident that our students would be great Human resource for the different sections of the partner organizations by bringing their fresh and innovative ideas, and becoming a helping hand in their noble causes.

The community Services component provides a platform for planning, designing, and implementing various programs for the students of UMT to learn and perform the art of community focused leadership. University of Management and Technology plans to make it mandatory for its students at undergraduate level to do at least seventy Two (72) hours work for community services in second year of their degree.
