Equal Opportunity Cell

Gujranwala Guru Nanak Khalsa College, Ludhiana has established the Equal Opportunity Cell (EOC) under the XIIth Plan scheme of UGC in order to abolish the social discriminations that the students belonging to marginalized groups, identified as SCs, STs, OBC (non-creamy layer), minorities, physically challenged, face barriers of denial of access to materials, cultural and educational resources. The cell promotes the deserving, yet socio-economically disadvantaged students. Our college, which is founded in the name of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the founder of Sikhism and the harbinger of social equality, is committed to offer a suitable environment to all students with special needs and those from downtrodden sections of our society. Equal Opportunity Cell (EOC) of our college is determined to take essential steps in this direction. More than half of college students are from minority status, and SC/BC background. All these students are entitled to services offered by the Equal Opportunity Cell. EOC is dedicated towards ensuring that students from across-socio-religious backgrounds are able to access our pedagogical and extra-curricular resources and infrastructure with safety and dignity, and towards promoting diversity and inclusivity within and without the college. To this effect, the EOC is devoted to organise the various workshops/seminars/guest lectures on pedagogical sensitivity in relation to socio-economic and political discriminations for the teaching staff; workshops, lectures and various activities against discriminations of all kinds for the student community at large.
