The IIS University has introduced this Cell in order to curb down the deprivations that the marginalized groups, identified as SCs, STs, OBC (non-creamy layer), minorities, physically challenged, face barriers of denial of access to materials, cultural and educational resources and to promote the deserving, yet socially disadvantaged students. The Institution has been conferred with grants and scholarships, during its Autonomous status, for students to give them an opportunity to excel in preferred fields. These scholarships have been a huge motivation to introduce a separate unit which will work specifically towards the promotion of female students coming from these social groups. Currently, the Cell is catering to the needs of almost 400 students of The IIS University.
Aims and objectives
1. To provide guidance and counseling to students with respect to academic, financial,social and other matters and to oversee the effective implementation of policies and programs for disadvantaged groups.
2. To adopt measures to ensure due share of utilization by SC, St, OBC, minorities in admissions, recruitments (teaching and non-teaching posts) and to improve their performances.
3. To orient them for scholarships, test and programs which will help them receive financial support from State/Central Government and to organize interface with well-established/leading academicians from the same categories regularly so that the students are motivated towards achieving their goals.
4. To make efforts to sensitize the academic community regarding the problems associated with social exclusion as well as aspirations of the marginalized communities.
5. To provide them access to opportunities thorough guest-lectures and broaden their knowledge.
6. To introduce to them, social welfare schemes offered by the State Government for the betterment and promotion of these classes.
