Functions of the Cell

The office of the Cell is an educational resource as well as a complaint centre for the members of the faculty, staff and students of the University. Its mandate is
  • To provide a neutral, confidential and supportive environment for members of the campus community who may have been sexually harassed;
  • To advice complainants of the informal and formal means of resolution as specified by the Cell;
  • To ensure the fair and timely resolution of sexual harassment complaints;
  • To provide information regarding counselling and support services on our campus
  • To ensure that students, faculty and staff are provided with current and comprehensive materials on sexual harassment and assault; Handbook on Sexual Harasssment of Woman at Workplace
  • To promote awareness about sexual harassment through educational initiatives that encourages and fosters a respectful and safe campus environment.
The Cell seeks to inform the campus community of their right to a respectful work and learning environment. It believes that if we practice respect, exercise empathy in our interactions with others so that we do not hurt anyone through what we say or do then we can create a campus that is free of sexual harassment. Simple respect for all on the campus community is thus the focus.

The Cell seeks to achieve these goals through:

Dissemination of Information – Display of printed materials &posters .

Awareness Workshops – about sexual harassment for faculty, non-teaching staff and students. The aim is to develop nonthreatening and non-intimidating atmosphere of mutual learning.

Counselling – Confidential counselling service is an important service as it provides a safe space to speak about the incident and how it has affected the victim because sexual harassment cases are rarely reported and is a sensitive issue.
