  1. Directorate of Distance Education-Mother Teresa Women’s University

The Directorate of Distance Education of Mother Teresa Women’s University was started in 1988 at Kodaikanal. Its mission is to empower women through education, especially women who for some reason are deprived of studying through the regular mode. The Directorate of Distance Education seeks to break the boundaries which block women from pursuing higher education by taking education to the homes of women who cannot go to regular college. Our goal is higher education for every woman who desires it. We aim to extend not only equal but equitable opportunities of education to women who desire the privilege of higher education, to be pursued at their own place and time, simultaneously with the demand of a job or domestic commitments. The Directorate of Distance Education is a boon to career women who aspire to enhance their personal and professional competence-to home bound women who wish to profitably use their time and resources to satisfy their deferred academic aspirations-to the rural girls who have no access to the mainline educational system.
