Today, I feel proud to write this message because I remember those days prior to 2008 when there was no college in Neral. Local students were running around for admission here and there. Vidya Mandir Mandal provided the home pitch access for colleges as it established Matoshree Sumati Chintamani Tipnis College of Arts and Commerce in Neral in 2008. This opening of degree colleges gave the opportunity to get access to higher and globalized education for all. The college is affiliated to the prestigious University of Mumbai. The college runs many streams along with various events, functions and cultural programs necessary to make our rural students develop their character, personality, attitude and also improve their creativity which can help them to make an ideal citizen of the society. From last year, the college has started various short term educational courses in computer application.

The college campus has eye pleasing environment with lots of trees and beautiful various buildings housing Junior and senior colleges. We strive to maintain the best level of education and widen the horizon of every students so that once he leaves the portals of college he should be able to face the severe competition and challenges of outside world successfully.

We, therefore, gracefully invite you to join the college where we provide the best quality higher education under the guidance of dedicated eminent teachers and professors by providing many facilities as per criteria of  National Assessment and Accreditation Council. Such activities includes National Service Scheme (NSS), Department of Lifelong Learning and Extension (DLLE) etc. Be a part of our college where you can enjoy the joy much more than mere learning.
