Erase Hunger:

Following Initiatives have been taken by our institution to minimize the hunger in the society:

  1. Applications for e-Rozgaar centers closed last month and many people did not apply as they do not have time or capacity (i.e. Financial and travel issues) to join regular e-Rozgaar classes at centers. We did not consider applicants who have failed in test neither did we give them second chance to apply or improve their test score due to limited seating capacity and huge pressure of applications. We only selected top merit students instead.
    However, online classes offer a golden opportunity to such students, who were unable to apply or join earlier due to above mentioned or any other issues. Moreover, e-Rozgaar portal has been closed for students who already applied and got selected on merit basis. As of now, we are trying to cater to especially those candidates who have missed the chance but along with that we do not want to disturb our regular portal application process.
    For Female students apply for Government College Women University Faisalabad (GCWUF) center.
    Last date is 8-4-2020.
    Every one please share in every Facebook group or whatsapp group. This is the golden chance.

Policies:

GCWUF Anti-drug Policy

Introduction:

Anti-drug policy at Govt. College Women University is implemented to strictly ban the use and abuse of all types of drugs within Campus. Drug use/abuse has emerged as a global malaise associated with numerous physical, psychological, social and economic upheavals. Only in Pakistan, there were more than 6.7 million people addicted to different kinds of drugs till 2013 and by the year 2025, the prevalence of drug abuse is expected to be 15 million. At educational institutions, the situation has been worsened as 53 % student are found to be addicted with drugs without knowing the fact that the drugs pose a serious threat to their career and health.
GCWUF has taken an initiative to prevent its students from the menace of drug use and abuse. Distribution, possession and consumption of alcoholic drinks, drugs, intoxicants on university premises or at University or at university sponsored activities are strictly prohibited.

Salient Features of Anti-drug Policy

  • A zero-tolerance policy towards the use of drugs would be adopted to ensure drug-free    environment at Campus
  • All possible measures would be taken to root out the menace of drug addiction. By promoting sports, arranging awareness sessions, signing MOU with NGOs, organizing seminars, walks, workshops, students would be provided with multiple opportunities to groom themselves through healthy activities
  • Training sessions of students, teaching and non-teaching Staff would be arranged for the elimination of prevailing threat of drugs.
  • Curriculum against drug abuse would be developed to introduce in all academic programs at all levels. The department of Applied Psychology is also offering a course entitled, “Drug Use and Abuse” of 3 credit hours to the students enrolled in BS/M.Sc degree program.
  • Develop a model, drug-free institute.
  • Support University research and assessment studies on drug abuse.
  • Formulation of HR policy
  • Formulation of rules and regulations for vendors/contractors

Sports Activities:

GCWUF organized the sports festival on annual basis with the motive of “Healthy body leads health brain”. This year the sports festival was also conducted to create a healthy environment among the students.

Workshops/Training Sessions & Establishment of Food Court:
