Women Development Cell

As per the guidelines of the Vice-Chancellor of University of Mumbai, the College has introduced a Women’s Development Cell in the academic year 2011-12. The Women’s Development Cell (WDC) is a statutory body for the prevention/action against sexual harassment of women.  It looks into the grievances/complaints of teaching, non teaching staff and students, especially in cases of gender discrimination. 

 

Objectives

  • To create awareness of sexual harassment through guest lectures
  • To ensure protection of girls/women from sexual harassment studying/working in the premises
  • To redress the cases of sexual harassment if any 
  • To enforce disciplinary framework for students
  • To organize workshops, seminars and talks to convey the message of Gender Equality (Gender Sensitization Workshops)
  • To organize the gender awareness through posters/slogans/essay competition/screening of films/street plays
  • To organize the programs with other associations of the college such as Students council, Cultural Association, etc.

 

The table below indicates the women development cell activities conducted in the past:
