Women’s College

Located at Upper New Colony, Laitumkhrah and operating from a compact, calm, serene and secure campus, Women's College, Shillong was established in 1984. Aided by a band of committed faculty, the institute, since inception, has been striving hard to translate its maxim Abirabirma Edhi (Radiance unto All) into reality through the spread of education amongst women, in particular, the tribal women belonging to India's north-east. As one of the premiere institutions in the state of Meghalaya, the institute is privy today to draw students from the neighbouring SAARC countries as well.

Education India

Education India, founded by a group of freedom fighters and social and political leaders of Independent India is essentially a tribute to India's 'Swadeshi Spirit'. They believed that the future of India lies in this spirit and as a linguistic minority not-for-profit education trust, Education India envisioned the establishment of institutions of academic excellence in the region that aims at building comprehensive and ethically wholesome individuals. Towards fulfilling that objective the trust currently sponsors and manages three institutions that includes Women’s College.

Vision

We aspire to develop our institution as a center of quality learning focussed on empowering women, in particular the tribal women of the region and beyond, by integrating our academics with research oriented and innovation driven exercises designed to make it truly enriching experience.

Mission

Our inspiration and dedication is steered by the spirit of our motto, “Radiance Unto All” that means an elaboration of the luminous sphere present in all individuals. Rather than acting merely as a pedagogical laboratory, our mission aims at helping students to discover their true essence.

Nation-Building

The National Cadet Corps (NCC) wing of the college remains actively engaged in inculcating a spirit of universal friendship and co-operation among the youth. Our NCC cadets take part in various national, regional and state level integration camps and a number of them have cleared the B level certification test.

Community Service

The National Service Scheme (NSS) unit of the college takes a proactive role in supporting the adopted villages of the college by participating in the various rural developmental works undertaken there. The NSS unit regularly organises special camps and other social service activities in those villages.

Quality of education on offer in India, limited exceptions notwithstanding, remains in the words of Sri Aurobindo, "bad in kind and in addition denationalizing, degrading and impoverishing to the national mind, soul and character.....” till date. Ideally, an educational setup should facilitate its receivers to awaken to their own socio-cultural roots. It must also ensure broadening of their worldview.

Alive to this scenario and being concerned with it, a group of the then young academic enthusiasts under the stewardship of Prof B. Datta Ray came together to form, about four decades ago, themselves into a coherent group of socio-academic activists. Ready to work towards a common goal in which reshaping the educational vision with the objective of bringing about an all-round change in the educational domain through serious restructuring in both content and form, the group registered itself as a Society by the name ‘Education India Society”.

To work for the desired objectives, the young group commenced with a civil society initiative to create new literature on education in which a synthesis of educational philosophy and thoughts of both the orient and occident was accorded a key place. The group was convinced that adequate blending of tradition and modern education must have to be ensured to achieve the desired objective of a systemic reform if education has to deliver the goods. To give a concrete shape to its vision and mission using the new literature it was working for, the group also decided to create, take over and re-orient as many institutions as it can under its creative fold and empower them to work coherently for fulfilment of its desired objectives

Since its very inception to begin with as a Society and its subsequent rechristening as Trust, the ‘Education India Trust, has relentlessly been striving to create institutions of excellence in its pursuit to create a new social order based on justice and equity through dissemination of knowledge of the right kind. Shillong Academy, Shillong, Women’s college, Shillong and Women’s College Higher Secondary, Shillong are currently the institutions it had setup and running under its ambit at present.
