For affirmative action, the college is committed to effectively implementing the Reservation Policy as stipulated by the government. The equal opportunity cell of Miranda House makes all efforts to empower its category and minority students. The launch of a short term certificate course on skill development titled Breaking Barriers is a step forward in this direction. This has been done after a long process of deliberation with National Skills Institute, an initiative of Lok Bharati, to tailor a course to suit the needs of students. The course content seeks to fulfil needs identified by students, an overwhelming number of whom wanted help with English apart from General Knowledge/Intrerview and Computer courses. In keeping with this demand, the component units of the course are: Language and Communication; Logical and Creative Thinking; and Interview Readiness.
