Discrimination against any person on the grounds of his/her disability or physical limitations and minority status is a gross violation of universally accepted principles of equality and human rights and even constitutional obligations. Equal Opportunity Cell was set up by Assumption College in June 2011, to address the issues concerning Scheduled Caste, Scheduled Tribe, Other Backward Class and Persons with Disabilities, as per the ‘Guidelines for Scheme of Equal Opportunity Centre for Colleges XII Plan (2012-2017)’.
The basic aim of the Equal Opportunity Cell is to ensure that students and faculty belonging to various diverse backgrounds of community, religion, region, gender or ability are not deprived of their basic opportunities. They all must have access to all the basic rights to promote inclusivity and harmony. Through this cell several activities are organized to promote inclusive policies and practices for all and to look into the grievances to ensure equality and equal opportunities to the disadvantaged group on campus through proper implementation of policies, skills, and programs of society. The cell headed by the Principal, heads of all the department, other staff and student members chalk out action plans to ensure the functionalities of an inclusive educational atmosphere in the campus.
