celebrating 130 years old and these years have been an unmitigated
quest towards excellence in academics and sports. Indeed, it is one
of the oldest educational institutes of India. The college predates
the Nagpur University and has naturally provided several educational
leaders to the University – the first vice-chancellor of the Nagpur
University included - and to the Nation in general. Acclaimed
scientists, prolific litterateurs, and ambitious politicians have
all walked its corridors. The college imparts education across all
the three faculties – Arts, Science, and Commerce. Postgraduate
education in all three faculties is a norm rather than an exception.
