Office of the Vice Chancellor/President

Fr (Dr) Stephen Mavely became the first Vice Chancellor (President) of Assam Don Bosco University in 2008. While serving as the Principal of Don Bosco College, Guwahati, he was entrusted with the task of establishing the first Don Bosco University in India. He played a pivotal role in the conceptualisation and planning of the University, and continues to steer its development as it seeks to create for itself a unique niche among national and international institutions of higher education.

Formulating strategies, scouting for resources, working with a close-knit team and addressing their needs, and forging ahead with verve and passion are just a few of the tasks he handles with the finesse he is known for.

Prior to becoming the Founder Vice Chancellor and Rector of Assam Don Bosco University, Fr. Mavely spent over 40 years devoted to the education of young men and women in North-East India – a mission to which he has dedicated his outstanding talents in a variety of fields: literature, media, psychology, communication, theology, management, pastoral work...

When the concept of accreditation was still in its infancy in much of India, during his tenure as the Principal of St Anthony’s College (Shillong) he won for the college the singular distinction of being the first to be accredited in Eastern India and the first to be awarded the highest ‘Five Star’ status by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council of India (NAAC).
