Universities being the seats of higher learning have been entrusted with the task of imparting instructions to the students with a view to make them better citizens to participate in the process of the development of the nation. Traditionally universities are supposed to perform the role of transformation of knowledge(teaching) and preservation of knowledge (research), of which the benefits, by and large, remain within the campuses or to the higher strata of the society. With the new vistas of knowledge opening in various disciplines of knowledge, education has become highly specialized, and thus the need of extension of knowledge was felt by the policy makers and planners. Consequently extension has been assigned the status of third dimension of education, the other two being teaching and research. It was under this backdrop that the Centre of Continuing & Adult Education and Extension was established at the Aligarh Muslim University in 1976.
