Equal Opportunity Cell


IIS (Deemed to be University) has established the Equal Opportunity Cell to aid and advice the students from the marginalized sections, identified as SCs, STs, OBCs, Minorities and Divyangjan. The University ensures that students from these sections are not deprived of access to educational and cultural resources for their upliftment. The Cell encourages the students from socially disadvantaged groups in attaining their optimum potential. 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 that 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 IIS (Deemed to be University) pursuing various programmes at the University.
