What is Utkarsh?
Utcarsh is a special cell for the physically and visually challenged students of the College. St. Xavier’s has the tradition of caring and giving opportunities for the differently able students. Besides offering various programmes for their personal growth and integration, the presence of these special students enhances the other students and staff in a unique way.
Utcarsh reaches out to others by involving themselves in the activities of the college like Culfest and PGOP programmes. Utcarsh also organizes seminars for member students on study techniques, reading habits, stress management, time management, growing together, celebrate all Ahmadabad Utcarsh day every year etc
We believe that admitting them in the college is just a first step, sitting in the lecture room, a second step, helping them to perform well in their studies, a third step towards inclusive education.The real inclusive education takes place when they mingle with each other and the others freely mingle with them. It’s happening but will take time.
