Adequate accommodation for people with disabilities

JGU endeavours to harness an inclusive learning environment for all its students. Students with a known disability, requiring different academic and other accommodations are required to register with the Disability Support Committee (DSC). The Committee provides a range of accommodations to the conditions identified by the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Act, 2016, Mental Health Care Act 2017 and UGC Guidelines. We provide support to students with a wide range of health and learning related conditions. These conditions include physical and movement-related difficulties, visual impairment, hearing impairment, medical conditions, specific learning difficulties and mental health conditions. The Disability Support Committee maintains strict confidentiality in its discussions and respects the privacy of the students.
