Principal Message

Welcome to Bhavan’s College

Prof. (Dr). Z. P. Bhathena, Principal

“When knowledge is rooted deep in the ethos of Indian culture yet is a reflection of the world, you get an institution that’s truly global in nature”.

Welcome to Bhavan’s College -where learning meets global standards. Dear Students, you are entering into an institute, that right from its inception, has grown from strength to strength. The status of “AUTONOMOUS” from UGC, the apex educational body of India for a period of ten years (2020-21 to 2029-30) has added to our academic stature, ena-bling this college situated in the biggest green lung of Mumbai to be amongst the leading educational institutions of Mumbai City.

While we are enamored by the promises that autonomy holds for us, we do not underesti-mate the challenges that it would throw up and we are geared to meet it with our distinc-tive tradition of “committee system, greater participation of the faculty in the administra-tion of the college, the enormous good will of its alumni and the credibility that it has es-tablished over the years in strictly following the criteria of merit, transparency, and social justice”. To top it all, we have a rich research culture that works on socially relevant is-sues. The “Clean water program” undertaken by Bhavan’s Research Centre (Microbiology) exemplifies the initiatives taken to create a strong partnership forged be-tween the academia and industry.

Today, the role of a College is not only to pursue academic excellence but also to motivate and empower its students to be lifelong learners, critical thinkers, and productive members of an ever-changing global society.

Thus at Bhavan’s we provide an atmosphere to our students for multifaceted development, where learners are encouraged to channelize their potential in the pursuit of excellence. This can only be possible in a holistic, student-centric environment. The talents, skills, and abilities of each stu-dent is identified, nurtured, and encouraged so that he / she is able to reach greater heights. Each students is provided with a platform to think, express, and exhibit their skills thereby empower-ing them to negotiate several issues that will confront them, with the teacher being a facilitator.

While academic excellence is our major thrust, the College is also devoted to prepare the stu-dents for life, groom them to face the challenges of tomorrow, and encourage them to be socially relevant. We constantly endeavor to live up to this ideology and inculcate this into everything we do, with the aim that we will be able to ensure that our students grow to their full potential, to pass out as men and women competent to bear responsibility in all walks of life.

In this quest, our alumni and parents are our main support and strength and their consistent sup-port empowers us to do more and more.

I am confident enough that the Bhavnites will make themselves stronger day by day, adding a new leaf to the grandeur of the college.
