About Department

ABOUT DEPARTMENT OF ZOOLOGY

                The Department of Zoology was established in 1989 for B.Sc. (Zoology) course. The intake capacity of the B.Sc.  course is 20. Experienced faculty of the Department is devoted to research in their respective areas of specialization. The Department has always placed equal emphasis both on teaching and active research. The Department of Zoology have signed two functional International MoU with Jath Superspecialist hospital and Manisha pathological laboratory Jath with this MoU our students regularly visited.

The department organize National conference on Recent advances in life sciences 2018, and also organize various activity like workshop, seminar, field projects, poster presentation etc.

           One of the Faculty of Department Dr. V.S. Jadhav has sanction minor research project Rs. 65000/- under research initiation scheme title ““STATUS, SURVEY, ECOLOGY AND CONSERVATION PERSPECTIVES OF AVIFAUNA FROM ARID ZONE OF JATH TAHSIL (M.S.), INDIA”. By Shivaji university Kolhapur.

           One of the Faculty of Department Dr. V.S. Jadhav has recognized as research guide for M.Phil./ Ph.D in the subject of Zoology Shivaji university Kolhapur.

           Two faculty members of our Department Mr. M.B. Sajjan and Mrs. L.P. Saptal awarded their Ph.D. degree in the respective University during the year. All the faculty members are actively participated and presented a research paper in the various workshops, seminars and conference’s during the year.

Additional time is given to pay individual attention to the students in their practical and laboratory work as well as internal exam and tutorial sessions. Different advanced project work and seminars are encouraged to develop innovative and systematic approach to Zoology learning.

VISION

          Our college will be an educational center devoted to the dissemination of “Education for Knowledge, Science and Culture.”

 MISSION

          Our mission is to strive hard to realize the vision of our founder Dr. Bapuji Salunkhe i.e., to make education accessible to the masses, and to mould responsible citizens by inculcating noble values and a thirst for knowledge.

 GOALS

1. To provide equal opportunity of quality education to all by means of sheer hard work, dedication and devotion.

2. To promote scientific attitude and inculcate cultural values into the students.

3. To enhance the commitment of faculty, staff and students towards diversity, social justice, truth, honesty, character and democratic citizenship.

4. To aim at overall personality development through various activities.

5. To provide a platform to develop skills necessary to grab new opportunities and face challenges in the ever-changing society.

6. To provide a substantive, supportive, safe, affordable and accessible teaching-learning environment.

7. To motivate the teachers and students to attain community and social development through various activities.

          The vision and mission statements of the college are clearly indicative of the objectives of the National Policy on Education demanding that centers of higher education should perform multiple roles like creating new knowledge, acquiring new capabilities and producing an intelligent human resource pool, through teaching, research and extension activities. The college plans and executes its curricular, co-curricular and extracurricular activities to translate the vision and mission statements into reality.
