Development of Department

Origin and Growth

The Department of Adult, Continuing & Extension Education was established in 1979-1980 under third dimension ‘of higher education. The department started functioning with the aim to conduct Adult & Extension Education through remote community centres managed by the students and the teachers. As per UGC guideline 1982, Continuing Education Programme was supplemented to the existing programmes. Short-term continuing education courses were introduced at the university centre for those who wanted to upgrade their knowledge and skills in certain specific areas. Population  Education clubs were established during 1984-85 to make the masses aware of Population and Developmental issues. Later, in 1988, Jan Shikshan Nilayams (CECs) were started for post literacy and continuing education at the Panchayat Level in the Project Areas. Since 1992 self-finance need based continuing education courses have been started at the university centre to strengthen the UGC financed continuing education courses organized at community centres as well as to provide new dimensions in the existing curriculum of the university. The department also organized training for personnel like principals of the affiliated colleges, programme officers, supervisors, instructors, faculty members and for NGOs. Several seminars and symposia on the topics such as national integration, population education, environmental education, continuing education etc. were organized during the period. In the IXth five years plan, the UGC laid special emphasis on extension activities and suggested to include field outreach activities in the curriculum. In the Xth plan UGC sanctioned E-learning and student counselling/ Career guidance Centre.

The Department received UNESCO-NLM Award 2002 for the outstanding contribution in the field of Adult & Continuing Education.
