With an animator, and two elected representatives at the centre, the AICUFERs are determined not to leave things as they have found it. (Vision statement) The AICUF Animator is Ms. Sandra Sunitha Lobo, Reader in Psychology.
MEMBERSHIP: Membership is open to all students without any discrimination on the basis of sex or religion.
The AICUF members attend rallies to affirm solidarity in support of social issues. Through their visits to old age homes and orphanages, they express their concern to the marginalized. They participate in regional meetings of the AICUF, leadership camps, put up meaningful Christmas programmes every year in the college campus. Christmas programmes are also given in other venues in the city. Clothes are collected and handed over to the deserving and marginalised people on certain occasions.
