The founders of the University wanted to make a difference to the lives of the poor communities living there. The next Centurion development was to open a campus in the capital of Odisha, Bhubaneswar. As well as a new campus, the move to the city gave the University the chance to begin helping the poorer communities in the slums of the city.
