न हि ज्ञानेन सदृशं पवित्रमिह विद्यते।
ज्ञान के समान पवित्र इस संसार में कुछ नहीं है।।
There is nothing more pure in this world than knowledge(Jyana)
Bharati College is committed to provide equal opportunity and accessibility to its differently abled and under-privilege students. Our College has been successfully running fee-waiver programme for economically under-privilege students for which the faculty and staff members voluntarily contribute from their salaries. Equal opportunity Cell (EOC) periodically holds meetings with physically challenged students to address their concerns and to update them with developments in the college. EOC organises workshops on disability sensitization with the help of NGOs for faculty members, college staff and students. To ensure the participation and overall development of differently abled students, our College provides the following facilities and amenities -
Enabling Unit – Our College has an Enabling Unit/Room for physically challenged students where they can access material online, take printouts and get offline material scanned for future references. Through our “Earn and Learn Scheme,” we depute students who help visually challenged students with reading offline material, writing their assignments and other administrative works.
Facilities in Library - We have ensured that students don't face any problem in library while searching books and other reading materials. We have sensitized our library staff towards the needs of differently abled students.
Laptop - Our College provides laptops to PwD students on their demands within the prescribed university guidelines. Students write an application to the principal for issuance of laptops and appropriate action is taken immediately.
Ramps - The old building of the College has ramps at both the entrances with tactile path. For the convenience of Orthopedics PwD students, the old building has its first floor accessible with the ramp built at the back of the college canteen.
Toilets for Loco motor disabilities – Toilets for the loco motor disabilities have been provided on the ground and the first floors in the old and new buildings.
Scholarship Announcements – The members of Equal Opportunity Cell update differently abled students about different kinds of national, state and NGO sponsored scholarships for them and provide necessary assistance to complete the process.
Games and Competitions Announcements – In order to boost the confidence of differently abled students, the Equal Opportunity Cell encourage PwD students to participate in all kinds of games and competitions. The members encourage them exhibit their talents in various cultural fests.
The College’s Equal Opportunity Cell consistently works for the holistic development of students by providing differently abled students necessary assistance and support.
