Centre for Promotion of Educational and Cultural Advancement of Muslims of India (CEPECAMI)
The Aligarh Muslim University, right from its inception, has tremendously contributed in educational uplift of the people of India in general and Muslims of the country in particular.
The Centre has been conceived primarily to act as monitoring and coordinating agency as well as a catalyst for all welfare and uplift activities including those, which the Government has launched for the minority welfare.
The Centre primarily aims to act as an agency to evaluate, monitor, coordinate and catalyze all welfare and uplift activities including those, which the government under various schemes, has initiated. NGOs involved in similar work would also be taken into consideration for evaluating, monitoring, coordinating and catalytic action.
It is a well-known fact that there is an acute dearth of empirical data about the socio-economic and educational condition of Muslims in various parts of the country. No meaningful policy of their welfare can be formulated and implemented if the policy makers are not aware about the real conditions of Muslims. Therefore, one of the very significant aims of the Centre is to generate an empirical database of Muslims through surveys.
