From its humble beginnings the college has forged ahead to become one of the premiere co-educational institutions of the State. With the enthusiastic support of an ever-active Governing Body, dedicated faculty and staff, the college is striving to become a centre of excellence, a beacon of hope, a model embodiment of the ideals upon which our Nation has been built.
Shillong College is committed to pursuing these objectives by accelerating the pace of its activities and also responding adequately to the emerging challenges of time. Today we have combination of factors such as, technological change, globalisation, economic crisis and the needed adjustment, the ambitious New Education Policy all of which are inter-related, but diverse and distinctively different in nature from those faced a few decades ago. Moreover, the world is grappling with the pandemic (COVID 19) which has affected every sphere of human activity and substantially reduced frequency of interaction demanding further change and adaptation to a new normal.
As we step into this new academic year with new hopes, dreams and still newer set of challenges, I believe every student is looking for an environment where he/she can excel, eager to acquire proficiencies that define and enable achievement and realization of full potential. Our college focuses not only on academic excellence but every student is encouraged to explore his or her unique potential and follow chosen area of interest whether in co-curricular or extra-curricular activities. The college provides ample opportunities for skill development also imparting entrepreneurship training to those desirous of it. With well-trained faculty, supportive staff, improved and constantly evolving infrastructure and technology we are sure to bring about a difference in the lives of those entrusted to our care.
I wish you all success.
Dr E. Kharkongor
