Yashoda Girls’ Arts & Commerce College, Sneh Nagar, Nagpur, was founded on August 1, 1992 by Purushottam Khaparde Health & Education Society, Nagpur. The institution was established by the great inspiration of Hon. Saroj Khaparde, Former Union Minister & secretary , Purushottam Khaparde Health & Education Society, Nagpur who initiated to provide higher education especially to the girls coming from financially weaker and educationally deprived rural background in and around Nagpur. Our institution has been recognized under 2(f) and 12(B) scheme of the UGC Act 1956. In addition to it the institution has carved a niche for itself by getting accredited with B++ grade by NAAC Bangalore in its very first cycle in 2017. After the assessment and accreditation process, the institution has been making its journey in the direction of progress under the guidance of functioning Internal Quality Assurance Cell. Vibrant and efficient leadership of the Principal; highly qualified, experienced and dedicated teaching staff; visionary and inspiring members of the Management body keeping strict vigil on the functioning of the institution; are some of the positive aspects of the institution due to which the institution is marching ahead to fulfill its well defined vision and mission. Almost all the faculties working in the institution are Ph. D. holders and are engaged in active research. The institution runs Undergraduate courses in Arts & Commerce (B.A. & B.Com). Junior College education is available in Arts faculty (Std. XI & XII- ARTS). The institution also publishes its Souvenir, “YASHODHAN” every year providing a platform to the students to boost their creative talent. Looking through the category-wise profile of the students, the number of enrolled SC/ST/OBC/ students is very high in our institution. Well-equipped Home-Economics Laboratory, Computer Laboratory, Library functioning as a Knowledge Resource Centre, almost all the classrooms with roof-mounted LCD projectors and the availability of good academic and physical infrastructure like College Canteen, Sports Facility, NSS for extension activities are some of the basic elements of the institution through which the vision of overall personality development of the students is sought with positive outcomes. Introducing and implementing almost all the programs and activities keeping in view the ‘Students’ Centric Approach’ on the part of all the stakeholders of the institution is the real strength of the institution.
