Bangalore University proactive policy of ‘SAFE CAMPUS’ for women

At a meeting of the Syndicate, the varsity’s highest decision-making body, on Wednesday approved the policy document on ‘gender sensitisation, prevention and redressal of sexual harassment and gender discrimination’ that lays down measures in the nature of punishment, stages of lodging complaints in cases of such offences, etc. 

As per the policy, complaints committees should be formed at the level of affiliated colleges, university and an apex committee, and each would have statuary status. A student found guilty of any such offence is liable to be expelled or suspended. Officials also face the possibility of suspension and dismissal, loss of increments, promotions being cancelled, if found guilty. 

Thimmegowda also highlighted the role of a ‘pro-active cell against sexual harassment/gender inequality’ to create awareness on the issue. Appropriate measures would be introduced at constituent and affiliated colleges, he added.
