Today the college is recognised as one of the centres of academic excellence in the country. Over the years, there has been dynamic progress at SCOP in all academic and research activities, and a parallel improvement in facilities and infrastructure, to keep it on par with the best college in the country. The ideas on which the college is built evolve and change with national aspirations and trends world wide. Consciously developed, the campus has retained and increased its green cover, rich in natural flora and fauna. The peaceful atmosphere of the campus belies the full range of activities going on, that complements academic life. At present it is one of the leading institute in Shivaji University.
