UPES has been working with Uttarakhand government to provide education to rural masses. It is doing this by adopting schools and revamping their infrastructure. Apart from this, it gives these schools regular academic support for subjects like Mathematics and English. It also organizes summer camps for them and gifts them woolen clothes during winters. The university has also taken initiative to gift them books, which further facilitates their education. On World Book Day 2018, UPES invited a team of five students from each school to participate in a painting competition on the theme of environment.
