The establishment of ths University at Meg halay will benefit the people of tribal areas of the state and the region by providing them high quality education.

It is a matter of immense pleasure to know that the Meghalaya based Mahatma Gandhi University is organizing a "Scholarship Program" on 19th July, 2012 at New Delhi, wherein scholarships will be awarded to the physically challenged and marginalized sections of our society.

As we all know, Mahatma Gandhi was a great internationally known leader who worked tirelessly for the welfare of the people national laying special emphasis to improve education system, to promote unity among Indians and to reform society and eliminate untouchability. I am sure his clarion call and glorious life will continue to inspire the students of the University and our future generations.

The various programmes of the University like skill development and also the incorporation of Learning Management System (LMS), four colour SIM Material, Video Lectures & Industry Speakers being initiated are really praiseworthy.

I am sure, that the University will continue to provide quality education and emerge as a pioneer centre for excellence in North Eastern Region as well as the whole country.

I am extremely glad to know that the Meghalaya Government has established the "Mahatma Gandhi University" and starting various technical, professional and skill development courses with new latest technology.

The present century is of knowledge society and we are at present in the age of digitization. As such both of them have to conjoin and work with both the hands together. Knowledge governs and conditions our lives in many discernible and subtle ways.

The wealth of a nation consists in the number of educated men and women in its harbours. In a competitive world where global market share is determining winners and losers among nations, it has become increasingly necessary to ensure that, besides a sound education, our students have the ability to engage and win in the global context.

Having embraced the glory of reason, believing that Knowledge is Power. Knowledge is Safety and Knowledge is Happiness. We understand that the Institute can be a powerful force a place where thinking people ean act and interact, not just to share old knowledge but, to make new knowledge. And, in the course of makin2, new knowledge, these people are themselves remade and transformed. They become leaders-not just capable students, not just competent workers but, men and women with ideas of their own, ready to change the landscape of the future.

I wish them Good Luck!

This will make education more and more vocational and skill based. This will surely result to better employability and greater productivity ultimately contributing to the nation's economy.

The enrollment ratio in higher education in India is close to 10.5% against the average International enrollment ration of 53%. It implies that 89.5% youth does not pursue higher education which is a big challenge for a highly populated and fastly developing country like India.

The Government of India has targeted to increase the Gross Enrollment Ration (GER) to 25%. This implies that we need to double our capacity for higher education. Besides other steps to achieve the above, the Government of India is also planning to increase more higher education institution to achieve this target from present 25% to 40%, thus there is a need of Universities.

We need to achieve inclusive and sustainable growth in education, skill development, health care, energy, agriculture and infrastructure. New solutions are required in many areas to reach such targets in expedient ways and making a good university is good solution.

I am happy that Mahatma Gandhi University is fast emerging as the leader in starting unique integrated and innovative programmes in Technology, Skill development, multimedia, Journalism Mass Communication and computer application.

We desire to accelerate quality intensive knowledge flow on the campus and ensure holistic development of our students intellectually, emotionally, physically and spiritually.

Socio-economic development of any society is the fruit of collective interventions in the Education sector. While primary and secondary levels education prepares the upcoming generations to take up future challenges, it is the higher education at the University level that decides the direction of future growth of the society. One of the biggest challenges faced by institutions of higher education across globe is to design an educational structure that can withstand the ever changing socio-cultural landscapes and enable the community it is serving to march ahead well with the time. The new generation-institutions always come up with great potential of meeting out this challenge.

I am extremely glad to hear about the constitution of a new University, Mahatma Gandhi University, in Meghalaya. The catchments area of this new University genuinely deserves special attention as regards developmental planning. The social responsibility, this new institution carrying, is extremely high. I am confident that being a new generation institution, Mahatma Gandhi University of Meghalaya will be able to effectively cope up with the challenges it face in transforming the society and will be able to disseminate education across known disciplines to the deserving younger generation of the country especially that of the North-Eastern region.

My best wishes for the entire staff members of the University. Hoping the see the University scaling new elevations and making remarkable contributions towards socio-economic well-being of the region.
