Women's Development Cell - Somaiya Vidyavihar

About Women Development Cell

The Women Development Cell is constituted in Somaiya Vidyavihar University, Mumbai (SVU) on 12-08-2022 by the Hon. Vice Chancellor of the University. The establishment of the WDC is indeed a great milestone to pursue policies for women empowerment within the campus. The University has set up the UWDC to address concerns of women specifically related to gender discrimination and recommend measures and policies for gender parity. The members of the cell are from various constituent colleges comprising the teaching, non-teaching and students. After the Sexual Harassment Act of 2013 and the UGC Guidelines of 2015, the University has set up the Campus Internal Complaints Committee to address complaints of Sexual Harassment of women at workplace.

The main role of the University Women Development Cell (UWDC) is to create a gender sensitized community within the campus, prevent sexual harassment at workplace (colleges and university campuses) and to promote general wellbeing of female students, teaching and non-teaching staff. The cell is also responsible to conduct activities to create awareness programs on gender sensitization, women rights and women empowerment in the University.

Aims and Objectives
