Principal, UCC

Beneath the cloud-capped hills, amidst luxuriant woodlands and surrounded by the shimmering waters of the Umiam Lake, lies an idyllic conclave of houses and buildings that make up one of the unique educational institutions in the North Eastern region- the Union Christian College, popularly known by its acronym, UCC.

Established on the 14th of August 1952, Union Christian College is an Educational project of the North East India Christian Council (NEICC). For 67 years, the college has been quenching the academic thirst of all those who had come to seek wisdom and knowledge within its hallowed grounds and for this we must give thanks to the vision of our Founding Fathers. We are here because of what they did then. Jutting out into the Umiam Lake like a mini-peninsula, the sprawling 170-acre campus of the UCC sported tree-lined avenueshas homed generation after generation of students from across the North-eastern states of Assam, Manipur, Tripura, Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh, Mizoram, Sikkim and Meghalaya and students from countries like South Africa, Uganda, Zambia, Somalia, Myanmar and Bangladesh. From a little acorn, it is now a towering oak, making steadfast progress on all fronts living up to its motto – ‘Come to the living water’. A patch of beauty and grace in North East India, away from the madding crowd of Shillong, UCC provides an excellent academic ambience and opportunities for you to grow and to explore your potentials. We, at UCC, believe that every learner is unique and special and it is, therefore, our utmost duty and responsibility as educators to nurture and develop every learner to prepare them for life.

It is our humble goal at Union Christian College to bring about the innate harmony in existence, harmony within themselves and with others in society and mother nature. I am sure thatour exciting academic and co-curricular activities will have a life-changing impact not only in your education abilities but in your development as a responsible and God-fearing human being.I also take this opportunity to inform all of you that is our utmost endeavour to improve our teaching-learning infrastructure and to also introduce new programs to keep with the demand of time and space. We look forward to serving you and your children over the coming years.

Come to the Living Water of UCC Thankyou and God Bless. Principal
