North-Eastern Hill University (NEHU)

North-Eastern Hill University (NEHU) was set up by an Act of Parliament and notified on 19th July 1973. The objectives of the University, as laid down in the act, are “to disseminate and advance knowledge by providing instructional and research facilities in such branches of learning as it may deem fit; to pay special attention to the improvement of the social and economic conditions and welfare of the people of the hill areas of the North-eastern region, and in particular, the intellectual, academic and cultural advancement”.

Center for Distance Education of North-Eastern Hill University, Shillong is recognized by Distance Education Council. The thrust area of the Center is to offer courses in the Distance Mode to all those who for some reason or other have been deprived of formal education and are seeking higher education to enhance skill and knowledge irrespective of their age and place of residence. It is hoped that in about another couple of years or so, the University would have developed sufficient infrastructure facilities for all its Centers (presently located at Bijni Complex) to move into permanent locations in the campus.

The University has also allowed, with the permission of the Government of Meghalaya, the Department of Tourism to set up an Institute of Hotel Management, Indira Gandhi National University and the Indian Council of Social Science Research to set up their regional centers on its land. The Sports Authority of India has also been given permission to create modern sporting facilities in the University. Thus, in the very near future, the campus will grow into a suitably diverse, but coherent, University Township. It has also the potential of being a University of striking scenic beauty. In a short span of about 30 years NEHU has matured into an institution with a serious academic and social and cultural agenda and a clear vision for its future growth.

The objectives of the University shall be to disseminate and advance knowledge by providing instructional and research facilities in such branches of learning as it may deem fit; to pay special attention to the improvement of the social and economic conditions and welfare of the people of the hill areas of the North-Eastern region and in particular, their intellectual, academic and cultural advancement.
