Umshyrpi College, a minority coeducational institution Under section 2 g of the National Commission for Minority Educational Institutions Act 2004 Vide letter no. CE/MS/1/2006/61 was established in the year 1994 by a group of like minded people with a common vision to accommodate students of all sections of the society in the area of higher education.
Shillong city, the capital of Meghalaya and the acclaimed abode of clouds, has been traditionally known as the educational hub of the North East India with its credible history of producing many scholars, intellectuals and a flock of officers in all India services. In the course of time, it was obviously seen that the demand of educational institution became tremendous since the erstwhile elite colleges gave access only to the best, and shut doors to the others. There was an urgent need of an institution to accommodate have-nots and students from marginalized section especially from minority communities, and to impart education to them in an environment that would guarantee all avenues of special care with the prevalence of peace, tranquility and security for all the learners.
The underlying vision was to mobilize human resource to generate a community of scholars who can manage continuity and change.
By that time, some forward-thinking leaders of the Muslim Union were impelled by the prevailing scenario to contemplate opening a higher educational institute by themselves in Shillong
On the other hand, there was an awakening ground that the General Secretary of the Shillong Muslim Union Janab Sayeedullah Nongrum who was a legislator of the state of Meghalaya had already founded and run two colleges viz, the Kazi Zaman college in New Bhait Bari and the Nongrum college of Zekabari.
The idea of starting a college was sprouted suddenly when the then Assistant General Secretary of the Shillong Muslim Union Janab A.S. Siddique Advocate enthusiastically put forward his suggestion to establish a college in Shillong city.Their conversation had sowed the seed of then forthcoming college. That is the reason why the statement, an initiative, shall remain worthy to be quoted and remembered forever. “You were instrumental to open two colleges in your Rajabala constituency; why don’t you set up one college here in Shillong with the backing of the Shillong Muslim Union?” Such a statement profoundly aroused the sentiment of the leader, Janab Sayeedullah Nongrum, a person of indefatigable dynamism and untiring enthusiasm for any noble cause. Soon afterwards he made up his mind with a firm conviction to begin with the work, for he, by his nature, utterly disagreed to any delay. That was the historical beginning of the upcoming college. For this profound purpose, a group of like minded people viz, professor Imdad Hussain, N.E.H.U and his wife late Mrs. Fatima Imdad Hussain, a lecturer of the Women College and some other members of The Shillong Muslim Union decided to start the college and thus a committee was constituted on 26th March 1994 with the following members.
In keeping with the motto “Haiya Allal Falah” Come towards prosperity, the institution will strive to become a centre of excellence, seeking prosperity morally and intellectually in an active and vibrant student centered learning environment. The campus will be a model of a diverse multi-cultural community wherein intellectual activity, civic responsibility and ethical values are held in high esteem.
