Heartian Policies

Our policies are drafted in such a way that they guide the heartian community towards the vision and mission of the college. They form guiding principles for individuals as well as the entire community covering all aspects of their life at the college. We belive that they would enrich the lives of all heartians and the people whom they come in contact with.

 

Gender Policy

Sacred Heart College is a centre of Higher Education, open to all. Though it began as a Men’s College, its recent past shows that majority of its student population is women.

It envisions a similar openness in the matter of staff appointment as well, roping in more women in the teaching and non-teaching categories.

It promotes gender equality by focusing on Women’s Development through the erstwhile statutory Women’s Cell, functioning in the college as a women’s forum called SWASTI (Sacred Heart Women’s Association for Service, Truth and Integration). It envisages periodic training and exposure programmes for women’s empowerment and gender justice.

The management is committed to ensure that the mandatory Anti-Sexual Harassment Cell at work place (Supreme Court & UGC guidelines) is duly constituted and functioning in the college.

In all this, Mary, the Mother of Jesus, at the same time empowered and empowering, shall be the model and inspiration (Ref. Lk. 1: 46-55; Jn 2: 1-5; Jn 19:25-27; Acts 1:14).
