This college is run by our parent institute MVP Samaj, one of the prestigious and reputed institutes in Maharashtra. The Moto of our parent institute is ‘Bahujan Hitay, Bahujan Sukhay’. Accordingly MVP Samaj is imparting education in remote places of Nashik district. Hon’ble 1008 Swami Krishnamacharyaji Maharaj from Saikheda has donated 5acre Land for the college. The vision of our Hon’ble founder members was to make quality education available in rural area. Our effort is to equip the rural youth with quality education so that they can compete with global challenges. During the course of development of the college along with UG courses, college has started PG courses in arts, science and commerce faculty. College has unique facility of boat club. We have ‘Kayaking’, water sports. Students take advantage of this facility. College is popular for its discipline and administrative control, regularity and sincerity which reflected in more number of admissions of girls students from rural area. Through appropriate NSS, curricular and extracurricular (cultural) activities, the College imbibes appropriate value systems among the students emphasizing universal values like truth righteousness, cooperation, mutual understanding, sense of justice and equity, etc. We are aware that we live in the era of science, technology and commerce in which traditional methods of delivering education and governance have become less effective and less motivating for the stakeholders in the College. Therefore, through the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) department, internet, intercom, telephone, services the College spreads ICT literacy among the students, teachers and supporting staff and makes them use ICT in all their activities. College has completed three cycles of accreditation by NAAC with B, B+ and recently B++ grades respectively.
