Anti-Ragging Policy:

Our university follows a comprehensive Anti-Ragging Policy aligns with the guidelines provided by the University Grants Commission (UGC) and is designed to create awareness, prevent incidents of ragging, and take prompt and strict action against those found guilty of ragging. Each school under the University has an anti-ragging committee headed by the Dean of the respective school.

Key Highlights of Our Anti-Ragging Policy:

  • Awareness Programs: We conduct regular awareness programs for both new and existing students to educate them about the harmful consequences of ragging. These programs emphasize the importance of fostering a culture of respect and empathy.
  • Orientation Sessions: During orientation sessions, incoming students are briefed about the university's commitment to maintaining a ragging-free campus. They are informed about the procedures for reporting any incidents and the support mechanisms available to them.
  • Student Pledges: All students, upon admission, are required to sign an anti-ragging pledge, reaffirming their commitment to promoting a safe and inclusive campus culture. This pledge is prominently displayed across campus to serve as a constant reminder.
  • Helpline Services: A dedicated helpline is available round the clock for students to report any instances of ragging or seek assistance. The university ensures confidentiality and takes immediate action upon receiving any complaint.
  • Disciplinary Measures: Stringent disciplinary measures are in place for those found guilty of ragging, including suspension, expulsion, and legal action as per the severity of the offense. This sends a strong message that ragging will not be tolerated under any circumstances.
  • Disciplinary Measures: Counseling Support: Victims of ragging are provided with counseling support to help them cope with the emotional and psychological impact. Additionally, counseling is extended to the accused to address the root causes of their behavior and promote behavioral change.

At Dhanalakshmi Srinivasan University we believe in fostering a nurturing environment that enables students to thrive academically, personally, and socially. Our commitment to anti-ragging measures is a reflection of our dedication to creating a campus culture that values respect, diversity, and the well-being of every individual. Together, as a community, we strive to ensure that every student feels safe, supported, and empowered to achieve their full potential.
