GenSen Committee

INTRODUCTION:
As institutions of higher education engaged in teaching, research and the spread of knowledge, (Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs) are well placed to reflect on, become sensitized to and oppose all forms of discrimination and harassment, especially sexual harassment on campuses across the country. Claims of equality, dignity and the ability to live, work and study without fear of harassment are intrinsic ingredients of this moment. Gender sensitization (Gensen) is not a matter for students alone but is required in all colleges and universities, and for all sections of the community - students, faculty in all disciplines, support staff and administration. The University of Lucknow has adopted a policy of zero tolerance of gender based violence in the campus. Every effort is to be made to provide the University community with an atmosphere in which education (in both ‘universes’ of citizenship and of knowledge) can be freely and fearlessly pursued. For this the University of Lucknow has constituted Gender Sensitization Committee.

RESPONSIBILITY OF THE GENSEN COMMITTEE
  1. To assist and support University to meet mandatory requirements to end gender-based violence and harassment including provisions for the safety of women students and employees on campus.
  2. To monitor the compliance with the requirements of the Sexual Harassment Act of 2013.
  3. Produce materials for courses and workshops on issues pertaining to gender sensitization, sexual harassment and legal literacy with the help of recognised experts in the field and make these available to all affiliated colleges.
  4. To ensure that regular training programmes including workshops and short term courses on gender sensitization become an on-going activity within both the curricular and co-curricular spaces.
  5. Provide information on research work, publications and lecture material with regular updates on the University website.
