To ensure the community’s investment and support, reduce the burden of the government in higher education, ensure the teachers’ facilities, NPCA has proposed the Nepal Public University since 2007. It launched its protests program and the Ministry of education agreed to listen its voice and the UGC made a team to study feasibility of the proposed university. It has already submitted its report with the draft act to the Ministry of Education stressing the requirement of the public university. NPCA is doing its untiring effort for the establishment of Nepal Public University. After the establishment of federal democratic republic nation, it has restructured its concept of establishing a unitary university and proposed the Provincial Community Universities in the provinces.  It has solely realized that only the government cannot invest in higher education without community’s support. Moreover, the community alone can’t invest in higher education. Therefore, it has proposed the joint funding modality in higher education by the government and the community.
