Alarmed by the outrage over the various incidences of sexual violence andsexual misconduct and other behaviours that create a scary environment for girls and women. The University Grants Commission (UGC) has asked universities and institutions of higher education to seriously review the security arrangements for girls and women on the campuses and ensure a safe education and working environment for girls and women employees.
It has recommended that every institution set up a task force to ensure girls security and keep it informed of the action taken.
Moreover in our male dominated society, issues related to women are quite complex and are multi-folded and overlapping. Our Institution therefore always has holistic approach in addressing and handling such issues. We believe that ‘Prevention is better than Cure’ not only applies to an individual’s physical health but also to the mental health of a society at large.
