SC/ST Students Cell

The SC/ST Students Cell addresses academic and non-academic issues and complaints received from students belonging to the SC and ST birth categories. The institute strives to maintain an environment where all communities can participate in academic and research activities without any sort of discrimination with respect to caste. In order to maintain such an atmosphere, the SC/ST students cell is responsible for sensitizing the campus community about the importance of having diversity.

The cell aims to ensure that anti-discrimination laws in the context of race/caste are followed in letter and in spirit.

The cell is where any complaints by students about discrimination and/or harassment are to be brought up. We encourage student-victims to feel free to write to the following email address. In addition to by email, one can also consider filing an anonymous complaint at the website: https://goo.gl/forms/F3BKMxkdGu28OGRz2  The cell strives to ensure that anonymity is maintained throughout the investigation. The cell is currently convened by Prof. Bharat Adsul, Department of Computer Science and Engineering and co-convened by Prof. Madhu N. Belur, Department of Electrical Engineering.
