“Only the educated are free”
The Sheth P.T. Mahila College of Arts and Home Science is at an important phase of its growth. After years of being affiliated with the S.N.D.T Women’s University, Mumbai, our college from the academic year 2015-16 has been affiliated with the Veer Narmad South Gujarat University (VNSGU) as per the directives of the Government of Gujarat. This transition to the new university could not have been smoother without the support of the Vice-Chancellor, the Registrar and other authorities in charge at the University. Our very supportive Management at Vanita Vishram – our mother institute, was with us every step of the way. Therefore we have taken up this new venture with renewed vigour and passion to be recognized as a symbol of quality education in our new environment. Our college is also undergoing a structural change in the form of renovation of a number of laboratories within our departments under Arts and Home Science. Food Science and Nutrition laboratory, Apparel (Fashion) Design laboratory and Psychology laboratory, under the aegis of the Management are being set up with the state of the art infrastructure with the focus to expanding our strength as an institute and to cater the excellent learning that we promise to every student who enters the college family. In the long run, we hope that these centres of learning will produce individuals who will become emissaries of the work being done here and reach greater heights. In addition to these our N. C.C., N.S.S., Sports and Cultural units have been functioning tirelessly to provide our students exposure to extra-curricular activities. These can be seen in the laurels that our students have brought to our college.
We strive to emphasize an overall development in our students, to identify individual potentials and fan these embers into contagious flames that result in a larger culturally sensitive and yet modern society.We are immeasurably indebted to the parents of our students for their trust and support toward us. I would like to personally applaud your dedication to the growth and education of your daughter’s. The future belongs to them. Therefore I would sincerely request you to continue your support to your daughters to help them realize their dreams. The college comes alive with the presence of our students. Therefore I urge every child here to make use of all the opportunities that come your way in the best manner possible. I am also infinitely grateful to our Management for their various guidance and faith in us without whom we would be rudderless. I also commend the members of the staff, both teaching and administrative for their ceaseless efforts all-round the year in their respective capacities. Finally I would like to end with a quote by the famous American philosopher,
“Success comes to those who are too busy looking for it”
Success is not a single definite point in one’s life; rather it is a continuous and dynamic process. When excellence becomes our destination, successes will become natural milestones on our journey. I wish you all the very best in the coming academic year.
With Warm Regards
Dr. Khushman Dholawala
