Resource Centre for the Differently Abled (RCDA)

Loyola College, Chennai is one of the very few colleges in the city that extend whole hearted support for the education of the differently-abled students. Over the years, several developments have taken place in the portals of Loyola to facilitate the education of the differently abled students in the college. To vouch for this fact, Resource Centre for the Differently Abled (RCDA) was established and inaugurated on January 16, 2006 with the fund received from UGC-HEPSN. Additional resources were adopted on Sept, 01,2009 with the fund received from the National Institute of Visually Handicapped (NIVH), Ministry of Social Justice and empowerment, Government of India. It was set up as the Model Resource Centre of Disability Services (MRCDS), the first of its kind in the nation to cater to the needs of the Differently-Abled. It aims at empowering such students in their studies and co-curricular activities.
MRCDS is equipped with many specialized devices to enable the visually challenged to grow intellectually and it also has special devices to help other categories of differently abled students in the campus. At present around 78 differently challenged students of the college are making use of the centre.
