Mizoram University was established on 2nd July 2001 by the Mizoram University Act, 2000 which appeared in the Gazette of India (Extraordinary) on 25th April, 2000 as a Central University having His Excellency, the President of India as its Visitor. The objectives of the University, as laid down in the Act are "to disseminate and advance knowledge by providing instructional and research facilities in such branches of learning as it may deem fit, to make provisions for integrated courses in humanities, natural and physical sciences, social sciences, forestry and other allied disciplines in the educational programmes of the University; to take appropriate measures for promoting innovations in teaching-disciplinary studies and research; to educate and train man-power in the development of the state of Mizoram; and to pay special attention to the improvement of the social and economic conditions and welfare of the people of that State, their intellectual, academic and cultural development". Keeping these objectives in view, Mizoram University has embarked on various programmes/schemes in terms of academic and administrative development.

The jurisdiction of the Mizoram University extends to the whole of Mizoram, the erstwhile jurisdiction of Mizoram Campus of North Eastern Hill University, Shillong, which functioned till 1.7.2001. Initially, the University had 7 academic departments inherited from NEHU, but now has a total of 28 academic departments. The University under NEHU had functioned from various rented buildings in Aizawl for over two decades.

Mizoram University in the current Scenario has changed immensely since the recent move of the main administration to its permanent campus at Tanhril . The University is now well consolidated in its main campus however, the Sports Cell, the Medical Clinic and Central Library as well as a few remaining academic Departments, continue to function in Aizawl and will be moved to the permanent campus shortly.

The UGC, on the basis of its Expert Committee’s recommendation approved Rs. 70 crores worth of Schemes/Programmes during Xth Plan period. This approval includes 77 each of teaching and non-teaching posts. Action has been initiated to utilize this fund within the Plan period of 2002-2007.

The UGC accorded Mizoram University a NET examination Centre wherein the first examination was conducted on 29/12/2002. Similarly, the North-Eastern Council of SLET based at Guwahati also accorded Mizoram University the status of SLET examination centre since 2004. At present, there are 27 under-graduate Colleges including 2 professional institutions affiliated to the University. The total roll-strength in these institutions is approximately 8279 students.

The academic expansion programme of Mizoram University includes the establishment of the MHRD/UGC sponsored School of Management and School of Engineering. Mizoram University commissioned Educational Consultants of India Limited (A Government of India enterprise) to prepare a draft project report on the establishment of School of Management. Accordingly Educational Consultants of India Limited prepared the Detailed Project Report (DPR) which has since been approved by Mizoram University and forwarded to MHRD and UGC for further necessary action. Mizoram University has also decided to commission EDCIL to prepare DPR on School of Engineering. These two schools are likely to start functioning very soon.

In commemoration of the Golden Jubilee of the Indian Council of Historical Research (ICHR), MZU had the unique distinction of being selected to offer Golden Jubilee Chair in History. Prof. Sudhir Chandra, an eminent historian who specialized in tribal history and folklore culture of South-East Asia had been appointed as the first Golden Jubilee Professor in History and finished his tenure in June 2006.
