The Constitution of India is the supreme law of India. It lays down the framework defining the fundamental political principles, establishes the structure, procedures, powers and duties of government institutions, fundamental rights, directive principles and duties of citizens. However, students, and people in general, have rarely seen the copy of the Constitution. They have only a bare understanding of its contents. Hence, a copy of the Constitution is kept at the college entrance for students/visitors to see, read and know.

The aim is to sensitise and create awareness among students/people to become responsible citizens. It has been found that most students are not aware about the Constitution and have not seen or read it. As they are Social Work professionals, they should know about the Constitution and share its content with others in society. They can use this knowledge while working on issues in their career and also as citizens. The copy of the Constitution is kept at the entrance throughout the day. One faculty member is in charge of it and conducts awareness lectures and programmes in the college and community.

Evidence of success: Awareness of the Constitution has increased among students. They also spread this knowledge in their family, among peers and in the community.
