Punjabi University was founded on April 30, 1962, in the former princely state of Patiala, with the primary goal of advancing the cause of Punjabi literature, language, and art. Punjabi University has subsequently grown to become the state's largest university.

Several milestones have been reached by the University in its efforts to further the overall growth of Punjabi. In addition to speeding up its principal responsibility of developing academic, intellectual, and scholastic standards, the University has made real and unwavering efforts for rural upliftment of society through different ways.

The Department of Distance Education was founded in 1968 and has been a pioneer in providing education via distance mode. It was the second institute in the country to embrace a non-formal style of education. This was India's first department to use a regional language as a medium of instruction and examination. Currently, the department oversees 34 multi-faculty programmes. The department is proud of its students, who have consistently scored very well in University tests, proving that the distant method of learning is second to none.
