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).
