The Department of Lifelong Learning and Extension [DLLE]

The Department of Lifelong Learning and Extension [DLLE] (known earlier as Department of Adult and Continuing Education and Extension) established on October 12, in the Year 1978 and has been recognized as a statutory Department of the University of Mumbai since 1994 to promote a meaningful and sustained rapport between the Universities and the community. The DLLE offers flexible Continuing Education opportunities for the people.

Extension Education, the third dimension of the University system, is a two-way process which visualized mutual sharing of resources between the Community and the University for the Development of both the common man and the students. This dimension also aims at sensitizing the students to the socio-cultural realities. It is visualized that the contact between the University and community would lead to the introduction of changes in the curriculum making it more relevant to daily life. The central objective of DLLE is “reach to unreached”.


 The objectives of Lifelong Learning and Extension are outlined below for making education relevant to real life situations:

  • To act as a focal agency in the University system for all Lifelong Learning programmes and to provide academic and technical resource support for community based activities in collaboration with Universities departments and colleges.
  • To serve as an intellectual intervention in the community’s living problems which need to be overcome through an educational process.
  • To develop among students a sense of responsibility towards society.
  • To design programs that will help students to face life and its challenges and thus create an ambience for a learning society
  • To deepen the teachers’ and students’ knowledge through a wider exposure to real life situations through a variety of programs.
  • To prepare students for a greater social commitment.
  • To enhance student employability skills
  • To cater to the needs of the unreached for promoting knowledge based society.
  • To network with Governmental and Non-governmental agencies, international organizations as well as industries.
