JSS COLLEGE FOR WOMEN
Affiliated to the University of Mysore & Re-Accredited by NAAC with ‘A’ Grade (CGPA-3.02)
During the UGC IX Plan period, the UGC has given top priority to the students and staff of lower strata who were denied education and employment for several centuries. In this regard, the UGC has issued guidelines to all the Universities and Colleges to establish SC/ST Cell for safeguarding interests of downtrodden students and there by promoting their welfare. To fulfil the aspirations of UGC, the SC/ST cell was constituted in our College. This cell has been functioning relentlessly right from its inception. It is aimed to circulate notifications of scholarships and other facilities among the SC/ST students sent by the Central government and State government from time to time.
The cell gives equal importance for the implementation of reservation policy in College during the time of admissions for different courses. The cell also helps the students in getting accommodation in hostels that are run by State government. The Cell also organizes various activities to create awareness among the SC/ST students regarding the facilities provided under innumerable schemes of the Government.
To provide supportive services and boost the morale of downtrodden students by removing contrary old difficulties and discriminations, so as to make them to live with dignity according to modern standards and practices.
In pursuance of its visions, the Cell facilitates the development of competency and dissemination of knowledge through appropriate channels. It ensures equality and social justice to each and every student of lower starts.
