I visualized that social transformation could be brought about through the medium of dynamic education. Kalinga University, thus, is an institution of higher education with a social commitment. There are quite a few young people who have no access to the higher education. In order to reach the unreached, our University has launched need-based educational programmes, through distance mode of learning. It is through the Institute of Distance Education, we aim at reducing the distance between the learner and the University. I hope, you will be one of those fortunate students who would get admission to one of our programmes.
