Students with disabilities pursuing education are a very proud accomplishment. These students may come from families with different financial backgrounds without a college-going tradition. Some have parents who support their education plans; others are under family pressure to enter the workforce right after high school. Often, these students do not know their education options, and they may have fears about going to college and misconceptions about their capabilities.
We recognise that these students will face unique experiences as they begin this exciting journey, and we look forward to supporting them. In every generation, leaders emerge. Students who can gain a graduate education have many more excellent opportunities. This cell is formed as per the communication received from UGC on 4 th December 2019, to help these students to complete their graduation.
