Education is the most powerful weapon
which you can use to change the world
M andela’s words highlight the tremendous responsibility that institutions have towards shaping the youth who are, through their active citizenship, going to be nation-builders and change makers. Educationists in India echoed the same sentiment as they drafted the preface for The Education Commission’s Report of 1964-66 which emphasized the value of education in the following manner:
"The destiny of India is being shaped in the classrooms. This we believe is no mere rhetoric in a world based on science and technology. It is education that determines the level of prosperity, welfare and security of the people. On the quality and number of persons coming out of our schools and colleges, will depend our success in the great enterprise of national reconstruction."
Taking inspiration from this, we at SIES constantly try to improve ourselves and create our own benchmarks that we are continually engaged in surpassing. Our mission and vision are geared towards an education that seeks to mould ‘humane’ individuals who are acutely aware of their responsibility towards the human society. In order to realize our goal we provide every possible support – intellectual, technological (The Pragnya Centre and the Centre for Excellence) and emotional (Spandan – our Mentorship Cell). Initiatives such as the Value Lab, Institutional Social Responsibility Cell and Zero Waste Policy ensure that our students become morally, socially and environmentally responsible citizens.
In an increasingly materialistic environment, our institution has dared to follow a policy of “Admission strictly by merit” and no capitation fee is charged. We believe in leading by example. The adoption of Kawthewadi, a village in Karjat, is a good illustration of this. The youth of our nation are the most important assets we depend on. We hope that the students who step outside the portals of the college will be individuals who are worthy of that trust. We are confident that our efforts will fructify in the form of a selfaware pro-active youth engaged in nation-building.
Our success on the academic and the extra-curricular front bear testimony to this. Keeping up the tradition of academic excellence our students have once again brought laurels to the institution by securing ranks in the University Merit List. Two students of the College achieved gold medal in this academic year. Besides these achievements, the academic year 2015-16 has brought many moments of pride to the college. The institution received the prestigious Ramakrishna Bajaj National Quality Award, a Certificate of Merit in the ‘Education Category’ instituted by the Indian Merchants’ Chamber. The College also received an award for “Best Innovation Initiatives” under the category of ‘Graduate Humanities’ from the Higher Education Forum in 2015. NAAC Peer Team visited college from 27th-29th April for the third cycle of re-accreditation. We have also applied to the University of Mumbai for autonomy. In May 2015 we have received "A" grade from NAAC with CGPA score 3.51 / 4.00.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the students and the staff of the college for keeping the SIES flag flying high!
