WELCOME MESSAGE FROM THE REGISTRAR

I am pleased to welcome you to the official Web site of the Calvary Bible College, Shillong. As a Registrar, I am responsible for providing strategic vision, leadership and management for the Academic programmes and affairs of this institution.

In our Academic programmes, we support the mission and ministry of the United Pentecostal Church of North East India by encouraging excellence and innovation in teaching, research/scholarship, student development and community engagement and we strive to prepare students for a lifetime of skilled and community contributions in an increasingly interdependent and culturally diverse world. CBC faculty and staff include outstanding preachers, teachers, writers and experts in a variety of academic disciplines and technical fields, all of whom are enthusiastically committed to providing CBC's students with a top-quality education. We are the highesttheological institutions in India to have been recognized by the Global Association of Theological Studies (GATS), USA. Our academic development program is for providing our students with outstanding opportunities to apply their learning in real world environments.

Calvary Bible College always emphasizes in maintaining good academic ambiance and providing facilities in every level for the holistic development of students in academic as well as co-curricular activities. Our education not only equips students with the competitive skills and knowledge to thrive in the 21st century, but also instills in them the grace and character needed to promote a more just and humane society.

Whether you are a student, parent, Alum, or just browsing our site, I hope you will have the opportunity to see for yourself the remarkable promise and extraordinary work this institution represents. CBC isn't just a campus or a broadly defined community. CBC is an experience and I encourage you to be a part of it.
