Equal Opportunity Centre and SC/ST & OPEM Cells

For Tuljapur, Hyderabad and Guwahati campuses of TISS, there is no exclusive SC/ST Cell and OPEM Cell. Instead, there is what is known as a Special Cell (SPC) for each of these off-campuses. The kind of concerns that the SC/ST and OPEM Cells of Mumbai campus deal with are the concerns that the SPC of each campus is entrusted to deal with. The SPC of each campus functions under the supervision of a Convenor, also known as Special Cell Convenor (SPCC). The SPCC for each campus is nominated by the Director of TISS from among the senior faculty members of the respective off campuses. The issues that each SPCC is expected to address are those confined to his/her campus only. The intervention of LOs is sought only when it is necessary. The tenure of LOs and SPCC is usually 3 years.
