It gives me immense pleasure to communicate with you all as the Chairman of Shri Shivaji Shikshan Prasarak Mandal which has a glorious tradition of last sixty years. Shri Shivaji Shikshan Prasarak Mandal was established with view to promote and carry out educational activities in the area of operation of The Rahuri Sahakari Sakhar Karkhana, now named after Dr. Baburao Bapuji Tanpure.
Our institution believes in bringing about changes that are a need of the time but also cherishes eternal values. Dynamism is an integral aspect of the institution. Transparency is an everlasting value. All the infrastructural facilities of education comparable to international standards are available on this picturesque campus of Arts, Science and Commerce College, Rahuri, the pioneering institute in higher education of the SSPM’s, has been one of the most favoured one. It has kept its high standard of education right from its inception in 1978.
Today, it is one of the premier academic institutions in Ahmednagar District, committed to achieve the highest academic standards. According to my view, human resources taller than huge buildings are the real wealth of this institution. Therefore, while opening the doors of education for rural students and making it accessible to the masses, it has been possible to render appropriate and effective guidance to meritorious students. Merely the percentage of marks is enough to pass the examination of life. It is necessary to take learning outside the four walls of the classroom and to infuse self-confidence in the students.
Taking this into consideration, our college has tried to practice experimentation and be socially committed through various activities. It is for this reason that the students who have passed from this college are at the forefront in different fields. There is no doubt that our journey from the good to the best in education will go on indefatigably.
