Students Council

The Students Council has been established to communicate student convictions clearly and willfully to faculty, administrators, and the Board, and thereby contribute towards the formulation of policies keeping in mind the uniqueness of the University. The Council works with the entire Shiv Nadar University family to ensure that all students reach their full academic, social and spiritual potential with the resolve to sustain and nurture the spirit of Shiv Nadar University. The members feel that being part of the decision making process, they learn as to how best serve the demands of an evolving democracy and to make effective and efficient use of the resources available.

The inaugural office holders of this body, had also established a Drafting Committee to formulate a Constitution helpful in shaping SNU as the most liberal and visionary university based on democratic values and the principle of self-governance for students.

Invictus, the dramatics society of Shiv Nadar University was established by the foundation batch of 2011. The society believes in the motto: “Express Yourself” as we feel that life is a stage where we all express our feelings, take action according to a particular situation and reach a climax. As Shakespeare says, “All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players”. We at Invictus feel that every feeling whether happiness, sorrow, greed, love, guilt, action add to the Drama of life and provides the insight to deal with all kinds of situations that unfold in the stage of life. Invictus provides a platform for all the students to integrate varied dimensions of life, and in turn promote holistic thinking and living. This counters the cultural tendencies to compartmentalize and rank in order the different domains in life.

Go Green Club

"Planting a tree, is planting an idea!” said Dr. A. P. J Abdul Kalam, one of the greatest teachers of all times, and India’s missile man, while visiting the Shiv Nadar University campus. His quote gave the ideology and shaped the Go Green club's vision. The “Go Green Club” was founded on Aug 18, 2011 when the first batch of students came to the University. The green members of SNU took the initiative to make the campus greener and healthier besides preserving its natural beauty. The motto of the club is: "We'll change!! We'll change the earth, change the people, change the air".

Go Green Club is open to all, because we feel that by keeping it open, everybody is encouraged to contribute their bit to the environment in their own way. As part of our club’s mission we plant a sapling for every faculty that joins the university and plan to continue this tradition.
