The establishment of Dr. Ambedkar Chair in the School of Social Sciences is a moment of pride and honour for the Doon University. Established with the support of the Ambedkar Foundation, Government of India, the Chair is exclusively dedicated to promote evidence-based policy research and training towards the inclusion and empowerment of mariginalised sections of the society, particularly women and SC/ST communities in Uttarakhand.
Towards scientifically studying and disseminating Dr. B. R. Ambedkar’s philosophy of social justice and empowerment, the Chair is going to be a dedicated yet vibrant centre of academic activities by undertaking research on socio-cultural, economic and political aspects of development of weaker sections of the society and fill up a gap in the academia and policy making in the state.
The University has already established an office for the Chair with required infrastructure and we are committed to make this as a centre for learning and research in pursuance of the objectives of the Chair.
