  • To ensure provisions for an environment where all such students feel safe and secure.

  • To provide a mechanism to redress the grievances of SC, ST, OBC and minority students, if any
  • To ensure protection and reservation as provided in the constitution of India
  • To arrange for special opportunities to enhance the career growth of these students such as through Competitive Examination Cell

The SC/ST/OBC and Minorities Cell will provide comprehensive preventive and proactive services to all such students enrolled for various academic programmes in the university. The goal of the cell would be to enhance the psychological wellbeing of SC/ST/OBC and Minority students at CUPB so they can take full advantage of the educational opportunities at the university.
