In September 2018, PA Sangma Chair Prof. for Tribal Studies was launched at USTM by Meghalaya Home Minister James K Sangma under which various research activities are being carried out. The most ambitious project of USTM in hand presently is the proposed PA Sangma International Medical College and Hospital which will be established soon at the USTM campus. USTM also instituted the PA Sangma Best Undergraduate Award which was first given during its fourth Convocation held in September 2018 and has been continuing every year since then.
