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.
