Constitutional Morality is not a natural sentiment. It has to be cultivated. We must realise that our people have yet to learn it. Democracy in India is only a top-dressing on an Indian soil which is essentially undemocratic.
Dr. B. R. Ambedkar

The Campus

Located in the midst of a hilly region with breathtaking views, our Shillong campus is ideal for students looking for a calm and scenic environment for their studies. Our university is built on a historic property to seamlessly combine modern amenities and cutting-edge infrastructure.
Understanding the importance of refreshing experiences, we plan to take our students on exciting outdoor adventures like hiking and camping.
