'Disha' is a Sanskrit word that means “Direction”. As the name suggests, "Disha", a social initiative of LPU, acts as a platform for the development and growth of all the stakeholders of education including teachers, students, administrators, staff etc. of various schools, colleges, NGOs and other educational institutes from all parts of the country. Disha, a collaboration of some of the most learned counsellors and experts aims to support and guide the students, teachers as well as the schools (as an organisation) through their experience about the ever changing system of the education sector and helps them to adapt and grow as per the requirements of this academically developing world. From clearing the dilemma of students by showing them the path to achieve their set career goals to upgrading of their mentors, teachers, parents etc., we are working for the empowerment of each and every person who is a part of the education sector. Further, the increasing competition in every pace of life is affecting each individual. This calls for a need of guidance to help an individual to make the most signicant decisions of one's career and life. Therefore, in this era of unbeatable velocities to achieve plethora of big dreams, “the theory of destiny and Miracles” will be an old tale and the winning trophy will come through the amalgamation of practicalities, hard work and smart work.
LPU’s “DISHA” a comprehensive career guidance initiative that empowers students to make informed career choices has already been working in line with the UN SDG 5 (Gender Equality). Through DISHA, we offer career counseling, and tailored workshops/seminars to our female students' unique needs and aspirations on topics such as gender sensitivity etc. The university’s initiatives demonstrate our unwavering commitment to gender equality and the empowerment of women, Women Health and Sanitation.
The university shows its commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by taking numerous initiatives and one of them truly touches lives, it is 30% financial aid on UG and PG programmes offered, providing financial assistance throughout the entire duration of the programmes, specifically for single girl children and single parents, with a special focus on mothers.
We believe in the transformative power of education that is reflected in the motto of the university as well “Transforming Education Transforming India”, and we are dedicated to making sure that this transformation is accessible to all, in the most compassionate and inclusive way possible. However, our actions are not limited to these.
A remarkable aspect of Lovely Professional University (LPU) is its commitment to gender equality and women empowerment for which the university has taken dedicated steps to continuously improve the encouragement of women in pursuing higher education and careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and the university has taken the initiative of discounting the application fee to 50% for all the tests. The underrepresentation of women in STEM fields is a global concern. However, at LPU, we are taking proactive steps to address this issue along with our financial aid schemes that are designed to attract and retain female students in STEM courses.
We are thankful to LPU for giving such an enriching experience to our Teachers and Students to boost their knowledge and decision making skills.
