"MGU: The Epitome of Affordable, Flexible & Quality Education"
"Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire."
- William Butler Yeats
Welcome to Mahatma Gandhi University, Meghalaya - a unique institute of professional learning and academic excellence that focuses on creating a distinction between "Literacy" & "Education".
Education is simply the soul of a society as it passes from one generation to another. The purpose of education is to turn mirror of ignorance into windows of opportunities. The Ministry of HRD is striving to increase the Gross Enrolment Ratio (GER) in the country. The GER in India is 10.5%, far less than the rest of the world. Thus, our goal is to increase it by 25%. Today's scenario depicts India on the growth curve of the service industry which signifies the need of skilled people as manpower in near future. Many times, this aim gets neglected as our Education Industry has now morphed into a steady source of business rather than academic enlightening.
A university should be a place of light, of liberty and of learning. MGU focuses on providing education to the underprivileged sections of the society as we have devised compensation and scholarships to those who aspire to study but do not have the means for it. The aspiring youth who want to study and create their own destiny can share their stories and mail these to me on firstname.lastname@example.org. My team will guide and provide them with sufficient avenues for higher studies at our own cost and help them to accomplish their dreams. MGU is an expansion of service industry. Serving the society is our utmost priority and thus, we believe in "Education for All" approach. We provide our students with study materials, e-books and audio-visual aids for better understanding of the subject at lesser cost.
Throughout my educational journey, the only factor which defines success is "KNOWLEDGE." It is with this idea that I, with due honour and respect envisage Mahatma Gandhi University as a pinnacle institution for sharing and spreading knowledge. I always assure that my personal intervention and continuous support will help the young blood in designing their career path.
I welcome and invite every young aspirant, inquisitive mind and dreamer to join MGU, Meghalaya and experience the thrill of soaring high and even higher!!

Vice Chancellor Message
As we step into this new academic year, filled with hope and dreams of scaling new heights, it gives me immense pleasure to bring out the prospectus of our university. It is always said that a powerful landscape can play a significant role in establishing a campus character which may be visualized at our Mahatma Gandhi University. Also, at Mahatma Gandhi University, we have a very dedicated administrative and teaching staff along with other support staff facilitating academic pursuits.
It is very important to inculcate value-based education to the students. To this, the University has initiated a 'Centre for Value Studies' in the Mahatma Gandhi University. Also, to prepare the students for various competitive examinations, the University has recently started a 'Centre of Competitive Studies'. In order to promote academic excellence and socially relevant education, the MGU is making all concerted efforts to meet the national and global standards along with which the target has been fixed to educate mainly the rural masses.
Conveying my best wishes, I welcome you all to our MGU family for your better future.
