Sikkims government college will open next year with a focus on women’s studies.
Srikakumaran State University, which was founded by a Sikkima man in 1932, is the first university to offer a women’s degree.
“We believe that we will be able to provide the best education possible for women and girls in this country,” president of Srikamahat University, Prashant Kumar, said.
“Sikkim is the largest country in the world with only 10 per cent women.
We are committed to bringing women’s education to the masses, and we hope this will be a success for the entire nation.”
The university has five colleges of its own, including the women’s college for men.
Mr Kumar said the new university would be located in a “sustainable” area that would allow for more academic activities and an education that would be accessible to women.
He said the university was looking at locations around the country, with the aim of eventually expanding to other provinces in the next five years.
“I think the women will benefit from our programme.
It will be like a new Srinagar university,” he said.”
The university will be based on an organic basis, and will be managed on an equal basis to the men’s college, which will be the primary school.”
There will be three campuses in each city.
We want to give the university a presence in all the cities in the country.
We will have a partnership with the police and other agencies, so that women will be in control of their lives.
“Sikkims new government arts college, Sivagangi Srikasaan University, is one of two government colleges in Srinagangia.
The first college opened in Sulkampur in 2012, and has two campuses, one in the village of Mutha and the other in the city of Mottram.
In a statement, the university said it was committed to ensuring that women’s interests were at the heart of its governance.”
The college is looking to recruit a senior executive director, and is currently in the process of setting up a governance committee. “
We are confident that we can achieve gender equality in our institution, and also make an impact in our society, by offering women’s educational and vocational education, social activities and recreation.”

It said it planned to start work on the new college in 2021.
“This will be one of the first such institutions to be established in Sikkim, and it will serve as a model for future institutions in Sri Lanka,” the university added.
