A book is a centre of knowledge that enshrines our learning for us and the future generations. The Centre for Publications and Communications, MLCU coordinates the University’s efforts to create, compile and disseminate knowledge created by years of research, learning and explorations adding to the purpose of society and nation building. Our publications essentially aim to expand the existing body of writing on studies emerging from the region around us. We endeavour to curate a body of knowledge for better understanding of our rich heritage, culture, traditional knowledge of medicine, environment, social issues among others creating a bridge for the wider world. The department also brings out the Academic Digest of the University which features publications of the faculty and students across academic journals and the public media. The publication of theses, conference and seminar proceedings are also under its aegis. Our current list of publications include:

Compassion -In the Expression of Healing and Comforting
By Dr. Maribon Viray and Dr. Glenn C Kharkongor
'Compassion is at the core of the mission and vision of our university. As we take part in the teaching and learning of our students, we also aim to facilitate and lead the expression of compassion in any workplace, in every setting, for anyone at present and in the future. As humans we may falter, but we will strive to cultivate in us and our students this very essence of reaching out especially to the poorest of the poor, the neglected and marginalized, the hurting, and the dying around us. In so doing, we may fulfill the motto of our university “The Light of Truth” that we may partake to illuminate, educate, and edify one another. We hope that this monograph as a study material will serve as a tool for this endeavor'. (Maribon Viray, 2020)
