It gives me an immense pleasure to pen a few things about our college on the occasion of our SILVER JUBLIEE Year . So first of all I congratulate all the Trustees, teaching & non-teaching staff, students and parents .
Our T.Z.A.S.P Mandal's Pragati College of Arts & Commerce , established in 1997 and immediately after two years i.e. in 1999 – 2000 Junior college has been started . This year our college is entering in 25th year of meaning full existence . It has reached the milestone , a moment of at most pride for all of us .
The seed of Pragati College was sown by T.Z.A.S.P Mandal under the leadership of our founder, a great visionary Chairman Shri. Nakulji Patil and other management members . The College started its journey with the eminent guidance and administration of the Incharge Prin.G.P.Kulkarni and it continued under the visionary mentor-ship of Prin. Dr. A.P. Mahajan who provided his service for nearly 20 years to this institute . During this span, under the guidance and leadership of Hon’ble Shri. Nakulji Patil and Prin. Dr. A.P.Mahajan, We have accredited 1st time by NAAC with ‘B+’ Grade .We reaccrediated under the leadership of Hon’ble Shri. Jagannathji Patil and Prin. Dr. A.P.Mahajan & secured ‘B’ grade by NAAC in second cycle of NAAC accreditation .
After the departure to heavenly abode of Shri. Nakulji Patil the leadership of Hon’ble Shri. Jagannathji Patil has been taking the college at new heights . This year we will see that the process of third cycle of NAAC Accreditation will be completed with our satisfaction. Also we are expecting that our Chairman will be successful in expansion of our college with the help of other members of the management .
The college started with vision to provide education to first learners of the society and to promote all-round development by organizing and making students participate in curricular , co-curricular and extra curricular activities by developing self confidence of the students.To inculcate respect for human values among students is one of the goals of this institution .
Thus, the college, a small plant is now grown into a large tree with Arts , Commerce, Science in Junior college section and B.A , B.Com, B.Sc (IT) , B & I , B.M.S alongwith M.A(Economics) and M.Com(Accountancy) and Guidance Center for Ph.D. The college which started with 522 students in 1997 is now the study center of about 3000 students .
The pedagogy, of knowing the constant growth in information technology , became much familiar to the latest technical advances . They, apart from delivery excellent academic content , use technology to make their lecture more effective . Thus we have a team of fabulous teaching staff with boundless energy and intense commitment for work .
We know , for a complete development of a student , parents active participation is needed .So we always remain in constant touch with parents informing them about their ward's performance .
