Department of Lifelong Learning & Extension
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 DACEE offers flexible Continuing Education opportunities for the people. As a well-founded academic Department of the University of Mumbai, the Department is committed both to the highest standards of excellence, and to ensuring that the University’s unparalleled academic strengths and resources made available to as many interested learners as possible so as to play a pivotal role in reaching basic education to the masses.
Keeping the UGC focal points in mind, in continuing education too the focus had now to be on the use of technology and the introduction of online short duration courses for the students, the working population, and the citizens, etc., consequently the Department has established an e-Learning Centre as well as Student Placement / Career Guidance Center during the X Plan financial assistance from the UGC.
We work with a wide variety of partner bodies in the region and we propose our courses at many locations within the jurisdiction of our University in association with our associate extension work colleges through our e-learning supported network. The programmes extend across a range of Arts, Social Studies and Information Technology Subjects and we are always keen to develop new ideas and to respond flexibly and dynamically to learning needs.

Presently 52 affiliated colleges of University of Mumbai and other participating Universities in the State of Maharashtra , under its Nodal Agency programme would be able to use these facilities.
