From The Principal's Desk

SOPHIA COLLEGE (AUTONOMOUS) FOR WOMEN is a grant-in-aid, primarily undergraduate institution, affiliated to the UNIVERSITY OF MUMBAI. The college was first accredited by NAAC in 2003 with an ‘A’ grade with an overall institutional score of 88%. In 2009 it was reaccredited by NAAC and scored an ‘A’ grade with a CGPA of 3.61 on a scale of 4. In the 3rd cycle of accreditation, it was awarded an ‘A++’ grade with a CGPA of 3.70 on a four-point scale.
The college was granted AUTONOMY on 18th July 2018.
Thus, Sophia College (autonomous) has an exciting future and is committed to excellence and integrity.
Under Article 30(1) of the Constitution of India, the college is primarily for Christian minority students, but it admits everyone without discrimination, on the basis of merit and other legal provisions.
From its inception in 1941, the mission of the college has always been commitment to women’s education, which is perceived to be the means for both personal and societal transformation. The vision is the upliftment of women through an education that is holistic and provides for an all-round growth. The College management is committed to creating an atmosphere in which the zest for learning thrives and students are trained not only academically but also to be women of convictions and values. All programmes are student-centred, providing ample opportunity for the development of leadership and self-assurance.
The goals of the college are revised periodically in order to keep pace with changing needs. Within the framework of the goals of the college, a unique feature of the institution is that a different theme is chosen each year. Various activities, departmental, interdepartmental and intercollegiate in nature, are organized around this theme, in collaboration with the Sophia Centre for Women’s Studies and Development. These activities include seminars, symposia, discussions and minor research studies on the chosen theme for the academic year. At the end of the year, ANANYA, an intercollegiate event focusing on the theme, is held. Other innovative academic activities are carried out under the Excellence Programmes of the college. The Education to Excellence in Arts Programme (EXAP) and the Education to Excellence in Science Programme (EXSP) aim to provide gifted students with the opportunity to go beyond the syllabus. The cultural dimension of the College is reflected in the prestigious intercollegiate festival, KALEIDOSCOPE, which is a very popular event among students of city and suburban colleges.
The College is fortunate in having a highly qualified and motivated teaching faculty, many of whom are actively engaged either in research work or in extension activities. Sophia College (autonomous), during the past few years, has received special grants from the University Grants Commission as well as the Ministry of Science and Technology and other agencies. The committed faculty and the additional grants for academic activities have enabled the college to meet effectively the new challenges faced by education today.
The Sophia Campus has excellent infrastructural facilities and is always alive with activity - academic, co-curricular, extra-curricular and sports. Our students are expected to participate actively and to take advantage of the many opportunities offered, so that they can develop into self-confident, responsible, ethical and compassionate human beings.

Sophia College (autonomous) for Women

The MISSION of the College from its very inception has been to provide women with higher education of an excellent quality together with opportunities for self-growth through an academic experience combining curricular and extra-curricular activities.
The VISION of the college is the empowerment of women through a holistic education which fosters independent thought and responsible action.
Our GOALS therefore are:
1. To enable each student to develop her full intellectual potential through a focussed academic experience that is simultaneously rich, extensive and collaborative.
2. To offer students scope for critical thinking and discernment, leading to the development of value-based convictions.
3. To help students develop a degree of self-reliance and determination to respond with courage and sensitivity to personal and social issues.
4. To generate among students an awareness of women’s issues, human rights and environmental issues, so that they understand and respond constructively to these.
5. To sensitize students to look at the world from the perspective of the less privileged and to respond with concern and in a humane manner.
6. In the context of globalization, to foster in students a sense of national identity that is secular and multicultural, with respect and tolerance of all cultures and religions.
7. To encourage Christian students to develop their religious convictions in an atmosphere of respect for other faiths and for each individual’s personal beliefs.”
