Message from the
CHANCELLOR
India's student-age population is one of the largest in the world. The
Gross Enrollment Ratio of India in higher education is targeted from
existing 18% to 30%. But, there are serious gaps leading to the
decrease of exposure to competent higher education systems. Such
gaps can be bridged with help of Distance Education, as it can be
tailored to fit around the students' current life position.
The Distance Education at LPU is a flexible and dependable system of
education purveying knowledge to the very door step of every section
of society. Its mission of 'Educating India Educating World' aims to
include wider dimensions of student centric and affordable learning
approach, hence, making it an important element leading to a
transformed scope of higher education in India and beyond.
Rashmi Mittal
PRO-CHANCELLOR

accessible option to a large variety of people from
young students to adults wanting to upgrade
themselves for better career opportunities.

Education programme, the university strives to meet the
educational needs of those students who might otherwise be
unable to attend on-campus classes either due to distance
or time and financial constraints. The university recognizes
that its student population is diverse and has a wide range of
educational needs, hence it uses different strategies to bring
education opportunity to distant locations. The university will
continue to maintain and develop facilities enriched with
