Excellence in academics, sports, entrepreneurial initiatives and outreach activities for women makes Assumption unique. Assumption has carved a niche in bringing out the intellectual, mental, physical, emotional and social abilities in students to make them ready to embrace life with confidence. In accordance with the vision and mission of the College, the Management has been developing, since its inception, the necessary ecosystem for the holistic development of the students. It envisions a world where women can find their true place, achieve excellence in their specific areas of interest, scale heights and be rightfully recognised for their merits. Sport has the power to transcend boundaries of sex, race, religion and nationality. It promotes health and wellness, improves self-esteem, and teaches leadership, team skills, perseverance and inculcates national pride. Women in sport defy gender stereotypes to make inspiring role models and showcase men and women as equals. Sport is a social and cultural process in which social constructions of masculinity and femininity play a key role and it could provide a space where masculinity and femininity are re-negotiated rather than re-affirmed in their dominant acceptation.
