Savitribai Phule Vidyarthini Manch

This is a programme of Pune University. Every college has to conduct these programmes for their students giving them knowledge along with moral and spiritual aspects of life. MES's Abasaheb Garware College runs this programme last many years. Radhakrishna Commission has suggested this programme and it is said that,
"The purpose of all education, it is admitted by thinkers of east and west, is to provide a coherent picture of the universe and an integrated way of life. We cannot be wise without some basis of knowledge and remain devoid of wisdom. Since education is both a training of minds and a training of souls, it should give both knowledge and wisdom".

According to their suggestions College is following the same through Vidyarthini Manch. For the same following committee is formed to carry out programmes for the same.

  • 1) Prof. Dr. Savita Deshpande
