About Assam University, Silchar

Assam University came into existence in 1994 after enactment of the Assam (Central) University Act 1989. Through its pursuit, Assam University is in the process of making itself an institute of excellence.
Assam University main campus is situated at Dargakona, about 20 kms away from Silchar. The campus is set amid sprawling hillocks and typical landscape of north east. The campus is spread over 600 acres and provide an ideal environment for the researchers, students and the people interested in academic excellence. The other campus of the university is situated at Diphu in the district of Karbi Anglong, Assam.

The university has the territorial jurisdiction over the five districts of Assam viz., Cachar, Karimganj, Hailakandi, Dima Hasao (erstwhile North Cachar Hills) and Karbi Anglong.

Assam University being a central university hosts a national characteristic of unity in diversity. Faculties, staff and students hail from all over the country. International students also find this institution an ideal centre for pursuing their academic endeavour.


NEP 2020 emphasizes the creation of motivated, energized, and capable faculty. Capacity building for teachers at all levels has been a major focus in higher education. Existing mechanisms, such as UGC-HRDCs and PMMMNMTT centers, have significantly contributed to training faculty in Higher Education Institutions, enhancing their teaching effectiveness. However, continuous professional development of faculty across all disciplines is essential in light of new and updated pedagogical methods. Therefore, the Malaviya Mission is proposed to restructure and reframe the existing capacity-building schemes for teachers and faculty in the Department of Higher Education. The Mission aims to provide capacity-building training for faculty and staff across higher educational institutions, in alignment with
NEP 2020, within two years through multiple training centers. The outcome of this capacity-building training will be a transformation of higher education in terms of Indian values, teaching, research, publication, patents, and institutional development.

The National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 marks a significant moment in the Indian Education Policy ecosystem.
Redesigning the higher education ecosystem, as envisioned by NEP 2020, requires strengthening the role of faculty.
NEP 2020 also envisions a learner-centered pedagogy with mechanisms for continuous comprehensive evaluation and assessment of learners. Capacity building for faculty at all levels of higher education is a primary focus, with various schemes and programs dedicated to this goal. The University Grants Commission’s Human Resource Development Centres (HRDCs) serve the country’s non-technical Higher Education Institutions (HEIs), conducting continuous Professional Development Programmes (CPDP) in areas such as faculty induction, pedagogy, domain knowledge, and leadership. These CPDPs are dynamic and identified by the UGC in line with NEP 2020. The Central Sector Scheme “Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya National Mission on Teachers and Teaching” (PMMMNMTT) was launched in 2014
by the Honorable Prime Minister. The scheme aims to address all issues related to Teacher Training, Capacity Building, and Professional Development of Faculty comprehensively. Under the Scheme, existing HEIs in Central Universities, IITs, State Universities, NITTTR, IISERs, NITs, Deemed Universities, and Centrally Funded HEIs have been provided funds for faculty capacity-building training by utilizing and leveraging existing resources. The Ministry of Education seeks to strengthen the synergy and integration between HRDCs and PMMMNMTT Centres to meet the objectives of NEP 2020, optimizing infrastructure, human, and financial resources. The entire capacity-building effort will be renamed and popularized as the Malaviya Mission. 110 institutions have been identified as part of the Malaviya Mission.

To build competencies in faculty for enhanced teaching, learning, and research by exposing them to Indian values, updating their knowledge and skills, and aligning with the needs of society and NEP 2020.
