I am pleased happy to make our college profile open in the form of this website. In fact, People’s College, Nanded needs no special introduction as its identity has been well established through its journey of the last 68 years. However, I feel some words are necessary for posterity.
Friends, we started in 1950 in the Osmanshahi Textile Mill School Building with 387 students and 08 faculty with a view to catering to the educational needs of the people in Marathwada region, who were deprived of education in general and higher education in particular, in the erstwhile aristocratic princely state of Hyderabad. A very limited number of people from the elite class could then receive education either at Hyderabad, Pune, Nagpur or Bombay. Honorable Swami Ramanand Teerth, spearhead of the Hyderabad Liberation Movement and founder President of the college, thought it imperative to broaden the base of education for sustenance of the newly formed democracy as well as social and national reconstruction.
Now, we have our own beautiful campus of 85 acres, a double storeyed academic building along with other necessary infrastructure, good and sufficient learning resources supplemented with modern technology. Availability of adequate infrastructure, good learning resources and modern technology can bring about expected learning ambience and outcomes only with an able and committed human resource. Today, 90% faculty positions are filled with 31 Ph.Ds. and 12 with NET/SET. 20 faculty members are university recognized research guides. We have a democratic management in letter and spirit with meaningful participation of teachers in the management and administration.
We are fully aware of our role and responsibility and are conscious of our graduate attributes. Therefore, we have modified our mission and goals with the global openings of education without compromising with our value framework. ‘People’s College’, the very name of our institution, does not represent any place, region, person or an ideology of any section of society, but all the people as a whole nation which indicates commitment to the body politic. Therefore, as a matter of our basic ideology, we strive for inclusiveness, diversity, democracy, secularism, openness and sacrifice coupled with modernity, professionalism, quality and excellence. We are an institution, imparting higher education in the faculties of liberal arts, commerce and management science and strive for evolving democratic attitude, multicultural approach, leadership development, innovative research, language proficiency, entrepreneurship development, business management and other related skills in our students. We always insist quality and innovations in teaching, learning, research and extension activities.
We plan our activities in consultation with teachers, students and parents, who are our direct stakeholders. We practise what we preach, and, therefore, we are open to accept all useful suggestions in the process of continuity and change regarding policy and activities on the campus. We believe in and work for a very vibrant, enthusiastic and creative campus, where students can get good learning experiences, formally as well as informally. That is why, strict discipline, regularity and consistence in classroom teaching, value added co-curricular and extra-curricular activities are and consistency our regular activities. The institution is very meticulous in maintaining a learning environment and ambience through a user friendly and resourceful central library having an in-house research section, cubicles for deep and concentrated reading, a comfortable reclining reading arrangement, print and e-journals, internet connectivity, a seminar hall, air conditioned cubicles for teachers, student loquacious, Muktangan Ladies Kaksha, a spacious canteen, potable drinking water, rest rooms, Eklavya Study Groups, college merit scholarships, endowment awards various government of India and other scholarships. In order to realise full scope for vertical mobility, we have courses ranging from higher secondary, graduate and post graduate degrees like M.A. in various disciplines like English, Hindi, Marathi, Political Science, Economics, Sociology and M.Com. and research based courses like M.Phil. and Ph.D. The college encourages research by providing seed money, training and other required resources. Vocational guidance, training and add on career oriented courses are much sought after by students.
We believe in procedural strictness and substantive flexibility for our stated learning outcomes. Therefore, strict discipline in operation of all sorts is observed on the campus.
I must mention the language Laboratory, the Computer Laboratory, the Information and Technology Hall, the Ladies Hostel, the Mahatma Gandhi Boys’ Hostel, the Hutatma Panasare Library as aspects of the pride of the college.
In order to strengthen through self-introspection and benchmarking, every year we identify a specific theme as a mission of the year and work around it as we need a goal that encompasses our broad aim of quality education.
