Dr. Sridhara Shetty Principal
Bunts Sangha’s S.M. Shetty College of Science, Commerce & Management Studies, Powai, is committed to promote and propagate quality education with relevance and excellence. Sangha’s overall philosophy is based on ideological underpinnings and a holistic context. The main focus is on imparting domain specific knowledge, flexible skill mix, positive attitudes, ethically sound values and continuous learning habits through reflective thinking in a student. The objective is to unleash the human potential within students for excelling in the chosen educational field.
Higher Educational Institutions will have to respond appropriately and timely to the demand, preferences and expectations of the employment market on the one hand and the society on the other. This could be done through quality, relevant, excellent and innovative courses and pedagogy. There is an imperative need to academic energising, practical empowering and spiritual envisioning of the students. To accomplish these, of late, there is a paradigm shift from teacher-centric approach in teaching to student–centric approach. In S.M.Shetty College of Science, Commerce & Management Studies, we have been demonstrating a strong commitment and determination to this philosophy with a spirit of courage, confidence and conviction by respecting the sentiments of continuity with change.
Forward looking educational institutions have to reinvent their roles, renew their goals, reshape their strategies and reorient their attitude and approach towards education itself and all related activities and people too. The best test for an effective institution is its flexibility to adapt itself to changes, and its ability to anticipate changes and equip itself to be ahead of the times, so that changes follow them, rather than they following changes.
The future belongs to those who believe in their dreams and hopes with commitment and hard work. Nothing gives us satisfaction than a job well done. We welcome the future more enthusiastically, with greater vigour and deeper commitment, for we know we have many things to do.
