Kailali Multiple Campus (KMC) is located in Dhangadhi, the headquarter of Seti Zone of Far Western Nepal. The population of Kailali District largely comprises native Tharus and migrated people from different districts of the Far-Western Region and other parts of Nepal.
Kailali District is one of the most backward districts of Nepal with little infrastructure base and a poor state of educational facilities which is evident from the fact that prior to the establishment of KMC in 1980, most of the students of this region had to go to Kathmandu or to India for further studies beyond SLC.
The absence of educational opportunities after SLC created an urgent social demand for the establishment of a campus in the district. The people of Kailali thus took the initiative for the establishment of a campus. Consequently, Kailali Commerce Campus, which was later renamed as Kailali Multiple Campus, was established in 1980 as an affiliated Campus of Tribhuvan University.
At the request of the people of Kailali, the Government of Nepal granted 27 bighas of land in the Eastern part of Dhangadhi town where the Campus premises are located at present. Financial and other resources required for the establishment of the Campus were raised locally.
Contribution to the Campus fund was made by the business community, social workers, the Kailali District Development Committee, Dhangadhi Municipality, and other segments of the society also liberally donated for this purpose.
Currently, 5381 students are studying in Kailali Multiple Campus Dhangadhi, Kailali; 743 in B.Ed, 787 in B.A., 2488 in BBS, 175 in B.Sc, 45 in M.A. Economics, M.A. 19 in Nepali, 258 in MA Sociology, 543 in M.B.S. and 323 in M.Ed.
The mission of the campus is to provide access to higher education for the people of the Far West and the country with emphasis on 'Janajatis', 'Dalits', women, and other marginalized sections.
