Mizoram University was established on July 2, 2001, by the Mizoram University Act, 2000 of the Parliament of India as a Central University the President of India as its Visitor.[1] The objectives of the University, as laid down in the Act are "to disseminate and advance knowledge by providing instructional and research facilities in such branches of learning as it may deem fit, to make provisions for integrated courses in humanities, natural and physical sciences, social sciences, forestry and other allied disciplines in the educational programmes of the University; to take appropriate measures for promoting innovations in teaching-disciplinary studies and research; to educate and train man-power in the development of the state of Mizoram; and to pay special attention to the improvement of the social and economic conditions and welfare of the people of that State, their intellectual, academic and cultural development". Keeping these objectives in view, Mizoram University has embarked on various programmes/schemes in terms of academic and administrative development.



The University is the fruit of the Mizoram Accord between Mizo National Front and Government of India on 30 June 1986, which states that: It is open to the State to move the establishment of the separate University in the State in accordance with the prescribed procedure.[2] However, it was not created de novo. The North Eastern Hill University, with its headquarters at Shillong had already run its Mizoram campus since 1978.[3] The Mizoram University Act, 2000 was enacted by the Parliament of India that the University was officially established on July 2 2001, incorporating all the facilities of the existing Mizoram campus of NEHU. The jurisdiction of the University therefore extends to the whole of Mizoram. Initially, the University had 7 academic departments inherited from NEHU, but now has a total of 18 academic departments and hopes to bring the number to a total of 27 departments within the current Xth Plan. The University under NEHU functioned from various rented buildings in Aizawl for over two decades.


The present scenario of Mizoram University after four years since its birth, has changed immensely especially after the recent move of the main administration and some academic departments to its permanent campus at Tanhril, Aizawl. Except for a few remaining academic departments, the Sports Cell, the Medical Clinic and Central Library, the University is now well consolidated in its main campus. A plot of land measuring 978.1988 acres (3,958,630 m2) with its lush greenery and scenic hills, leased by the Government of Mizoram at Tanhril serves as the permanent campus of Mizoram University. It is now undergoing a sea change, thanks to the development and construction works taking place with the help of the sum of Rs. 25 crores from DoNER and anticipated commitment of UGC Grant for the Infrastructure of Development of Mizoram University under Xth Plan amounting to Rs. 43.50 Crores.
