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.


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.


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.


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.

Principal's Message

Welcome to the website of Women’s College. Ours is a linguistic minority institution managed by the Education India Trust. Right from its inception in 1984, the college has been guided by the motto “Abirabirma Edhi” which means “Radiance Unto All”. The aim of the college has been to impart quality education to young women of the North-Eastern region of the country. Our well-placed alumni in India and abroad attest to the role we play in empowering our students with the values and skills to realise their full potential as responsible members of the society.

Helped by its locale in the beautiful town of Shillong, the College attracts students not just from Meghalaya and its adjoining regions, but also from neighbouring countries. This diversity not only enriches our worldview and promotes empathy and tolerance, it also engenders a fertile ground for cross-pollination of ideas. In other words, a conducive atmosphere for academics, which is buttressed by our cadre of talented and accomplished faculty. At present, we offer courses in Humanities and the Social Sciences. A degree programme in Social Work has been introduced since 2008. More such programmes are on the anvil.

In the spirit of holistic education, our students are encouraged to take part in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. The laurels that they have brought to the college are a testament to their enthusiasm with which they participate in these activities. To imbue them with necessary employment-oriented skills, we regularly conduct seminars and workshops.

The infrastructure of the college has been augmented, thanks to the infusion of grants from state as well as central bodies. We are the first adhoc grant-in-aid college to have been accredited by NAAC and have gone through three cycles of accreditation.

Should you consider joining us as a student, rest assured that Women’s College not only moulds minds but it also transforms lives.
