Principal's Message

Heartiest Welcome,
     As you know, our college has been gaining new heights, while still being firmly grounded to its origin. Just like the culture, our college has also evolved through time. Since, higher education is experiencing significant changes; we have been proactive in picking these signals to ensure that, our endeavors make an impact in developing our learners. Our college has many firsts to its credit especially; to start new programmes at under-graduate, post-graduate and research levels. Along with innovation towards bringing out new academic programmes, we have taken a serious look to excel in curricular, co-curricular, extra- curricular and extension activities such as cultural, sports, NCC, NSS and Avishkar activities which are the integral facets of experimental learning and process of overall development of learners.

    Our vision is, ‘Aiming for the best through amalgamation of attitude and acumen’. To achieve this, our philosophy has been to focus on knowledge dissemination, application and opportunity to excel by utilizing and directing the potential of our learners. Our vision, mission, objectives and core values lie in the heart of our stakeholders, who are always working for development of the college.

    Our ability to think differently and create new paths instead of taking the routine route has paid rich dividends. The journey, we completed in the line has not gone unnoticed. NAAC conferred on us a prestigious ‘A+’ grade in re-accreditation (Third Cycle-CGPA 3.61), University Grants Commission awarded us twice, a ‘College with Potential for Excellence’ status and University of Mumbai adjudged us a ‘Best college Award’. All these glories are possible only because of our estimable and hard working learners, dedicated faculty, sincere administrative and non-teaching staff, strong and supportive management and large reservoir of goodwill of our college in the society.

    Implementation of credit, grading and semester system challenges the ability of learners to participate in learning process continuously and demands corresponding efforts from faculty and staff which we have imbibed in our working systems.

Feel free to know about us a little more.
