I feel myself proud and privileged when availing of the opportunity of communicating with you through the website of my college as the Principal.
It would be only in fitness of the things if I make here a mention of the mission and vision of my college, as also that of our dedicated management which embarked upon this charitable venture where then North Gujarat was marked backward in the education in general and Higher Education in particular. It was the year 1960.
Since then, we have not looked back into strengthening our institution, which has established many a milestones in its arduous journey of more than fifty years, and broadening its sweep. Today, the seed sown then has become a huge tree under the shadow of which more than 2500 students are exploring various branches of knowledge. The college has been scaling newer heights of development in the academic field. The mission of the institution is to be a portal to careers which meet the international standards and its vision is to be quality driven centre of learning in the areas of literature, languages and commerce. Along with this, emphasis on academic research, orientation of students towards community and feedback on the quality of the programmes offered, distinguish our college from other affiliated colleges of Gujarat University.
Like Elizabethans, I felt myself to be one of the “Chosen People of God” while taking charge as a principal of this college the foundation stone of which was laid by the great social reformer St.Ravishankar Maharaj and nurtured with love and dedication by Padma – shree awardee Sheth Shree Lallubhai Hakamchand.
Within a short span of two years, the college got NAAC accreditation with ‘B’ – Grade (GCPA – 2.20) , and thus embarked upon the endless journey of education and progress adding newer feathers in its crown. Constant encouragement and inspiration for higher degree in their academic careers to the teachers resulted into wonderful response; 6 teachers have got Ph.D. degree and 5 are pursuing doctoral research. In the field of quality – research also, very enthusiastic results are achieved. One professor has completed Minor Research Project Funded by UGC and 3 are engaged in the research. Recently one professor has been allocated grant by UGC for his prestigious Major Research Project. Three of our teachers are Ph.D. Guide in different Universities. Besides this, the visiting teaching faculty is also well-qualified and is engaged in quality – research. The teaching faculty of the college is actively participating in National and International Seminars and conferences, presenting papers and working as Resource Persons. Their Research Papers and articles have been published in reputed magazines and refereed journals. Excellence in performance, global understanding, universal values and service to mankind are the building blocks of our educational edifice which go a long way in exploring students’ intelligence.
We have established Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) immediately after the accreditation by NAAC. The IQAC provides the development and application of quality benchmarks / parameters for the various academic and administrative activities of the institution.
•   A ‘Film – Club’ is established in which the movies based on the curriculum of the students are shown with a view to enhancing their understanding.

Over the years, our institution has taken giant steps in its endeavor of educating, specially, our rural masses, and to-day, we can be justifiably proud of modestly claiming that we are on the right path and have not wavered or reared from in the face of many unforeseen development.
Also aware are we that we have to go a long way, irrespective of constraints of ways and means….
