“Making Excellence a Prevailing Attitude” is our motto. In order to achieve it, we strive to enrich the personality of our students in all dimensions. Thereby, we carry out various academic, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities for the students. In order to carry out all such activities more effectively, there is an establishment of Students’ Welfare Cell in our college.
The Cell works under the guidance of Students’ Welfare Board of Savitribai Phule Pune University, Pune. As far as practicable, the Cell carries out different activities as required by the University from time to time through its circulars. In addition to it, the Cell assists different departments of the college in organizing various activities for overall development of the personality of college students.
Further, in order to imbibe the culture and respect towards any kind of work, the college has started ‘Karmaveer Bhaurao Patil Earn and Learn Scheme’ as approved by the Savitribai Phule Pune University, Pune. This scheme is basically undertaken for the benefit of students coming from the rural areas, who are intelligent and meritorious but economically backward and cannot afford higher education also who are needy and financially hard pressed. Involvement of such students in this scheme will make higher education accessible and available to them. Thereby we endeavor to nurture mental, physical, cultural growth of our students.
