New Delhi: The University Grants Commission (UGC) has asked all universities and affiliated colleges to ensure the early nomination of 'Gender Champions' from among students who will lead efforts to make campuses more inclusive and spread gender sensitisation. The apex regulatory body for higher education in India has also asked the institutions to fill up the online compliance details.
"In order to increase the outreach for creating an environment that fosters equal treatment, the government envisages Gender Champions in all educational institutions across the country as responsible leaders," UGC Secretary Rajnish Jain said in a letter to Vice Chancellors and college principals.
