Social responsibility is one of the cornerstones of the education model. We aim to raise awareness in order to fight for human rights and run literacy programs for very sensitive groups, through volunteering and raising awareness of institutions, and to encourage and cooperate with responsibility projects. We believe that such projects will help to build equal opportunities and a fairer society for all students.

It helps our graduates to stay in touch with the University and also offers opportunities for social interaction, networking and all kinds of volunteer activities.
Student clubs are established at Near East University in order to encourage students to use their spare time according to their interests, to gain new interests, to get used to relaxing and having fun together, to engage in activities related to fine arts, and to participate in cultural and artistic activities.
Every student at our university can join clubs that interest them, and can also take the initiative to form clubs for new interests. In this way, the aim is for students to develop socio-culturally and professionally, gain communication and self-expression skills, organize activities related to club subjects or joint activities, participate in organized activities, make good use of their spare time and gain the habit of having fun together.
