Distance Education has for its basis the philosophy that a democratic society has the responsibility to provide facilities for acquisition of knowledge and improvement of skills to those who for some reason or the other are not able to do so through the conventional system. The growing number of aspiring students has further added to the need for widening educational opportunities through non conventional channels.
The School of Distance Education commenced its activities in 1990. Facilities for contact classes which had been provided at different venues within the jurisdiction of the University. What needs to be emphasized is that it has been possible for the school to administer the curricula of various programmes of study through the distance mode of instruction without compromising on quality and standards.
