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.

About Us

Our History

Located at Upper New Colony, Laitumkhrah and operating from a compact, calm, serene and secure campus, Women’s College, Shillong, an Education India Trust-managed linguistic minority institution 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.

Standing tall as one of the premiere institutions in the state of Meghalaya, the institute is privy today to draw students from the neighbouring SAARC countries. Offering regular academic courses of Semester System(Honours)in the Arts and applied stream of studies, the institute, a private aided centre of learning, is affiliated to the North- Eastern Hill University (NEHU), Shillong.

In 2008, the college expanded the range of academic programmes it offers through the incorporation of a professional course on Social Work in its programme of studies. Students joining this course exit with the degree of Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) awarded under the stamp of its affiliating university. The institutional also houses a Special Study Centre of the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) functioning from its campus and offers under its banner a number of certificate and diploma programmes and Masters in Anthropology and Education aimed at enhancing its students’ professional compatibility.

Enlisted under the University Grants Commission (UGC) section 2f and 12(B)of the UGC Act of 1956, the institute has been accredited thrice by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council(NAAC) in 2007 and 2014 and 2020

Being alive to the shifting contours of modern day academics, the institute deems it incumbent upon itself to equip its students with comprehensive acumen and accordingly supplement its regular academic activities by ensuring participation of its students in extra-curricular activities such as seminars, workshops, skill development programmes, debates, sports and cultural events with a view to bring forth the multifaceted potential latent in each one of them. Such activities, the institute believes, go a long way in ensuring harmonious development of its students through the skillful shaping of their spiritual, moral, mental, physical and aesthetic faculties.

Overriding the rather formidable constraints on spatial and fiscal fronts, this institute has indeed come a long way in its journey of transforming itself into a vivid and vibrant centre of learning.
