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.
Students with long-standing conditions should preferably register with DSC at the beginning of each academic year beginning in August. Specifically, in cases where psychological support is sought, students are advised to meet with the counsellor before every semester to evaluate the need of changes regarding support. The DSC will take at least 14 business days to make arrangements with the respective departments.
DSC does not provide emergency services. It has an active referral mechanism with Jindal Global University Health Centre & the Center for Wellness and Counseling Services. In addition, we actively work with the Hostels, Sports, Students Life and Cultural Engagement, Security and Fire Safety Drills.
