The Shikshan Prasarak Sanstha was established in 1961 with a mission to make higher education available to the students from rural background like Sangamner its vicinity. Since its inception, the college has been following its vision “SPREAD KNOWLEDGE UNTO THE LAST” by taking the educational needs of the rural masses into account. In the year 2020, the college was conferred AUTONOMOUS status by University Grants Commission, New Delhi.
In imparting higher education to its students, the college has always taken care that its efforts remain focussed on the up-liftment of socio-economically and culturally deprived rural youth from Sangamner and its vicinity.
