CENSERVE was created as a platform for staff and students to plan activities for the community. Every year hundreds of students register as CENSERVE volunteers under various clubs and project teams. The staff participate as club advisors, trainers and as in invited speakers during talks.

CENSERVE has produced thousands of students with skills on volunteerism, humanitarian work and project management. Through CENSERVE activities students understand that IIUM graduates shall not only be well versed in his or her field of study but even more so, shall also socially responsible and has strong desire to improve the lives of the ummah and humankinds. They are given the empowerment to plan, and implement community service projects guided by CENSERVE officials.
