William Carey University (WCU) is a unique vision. It is an institution that will not just concentrate on academics but will integrate socio-economic and environmental realities in NE India. Universities have become academic “ivory towers” and merely operating as degree mills. WCU is set to change this paradigm.
Established by the Gazette of Meghalaya No. 76 William Carey Act 2005, authorising ACTS to establish the William Carey University, we have begun our activities in Shillong. UGC recognition will be sought in due time.
WCU has made steady progress with various programmes that will fulfil our vision. Our collaboration with Grace City in Umsning will be a practical demonstration of education that will bring socio-economic transformation. Jobs will be created. We are also partnering with other universities worldwide for internationally acceptable academic programmes.
