St. Xavier's University, Kolkata is taking a step forward to achieving a gender sensitive space within campus by constituting the Women and Gender Development Cell (WGDC). The university's concerted efforts to eliminate any form of gender discrimination and bias among its students have reached their culmination in the WGDC, which will endeavour to create a greater sense of awareness and a deeper understanding of the importance of gender equality. The Women and Gender Development Cell (WGDC) is chaired by our Honourable Vice-Chancellor, Rev. Fr. Dr. John Felix Raj, S.J. and its activities will be coordinated by Prof. Medha Bhadra Chowdhury, Professor-in-Charge of women students. .
