The distinctiveness of the institution lies in its Institutional Outreach Programme. An outreach program aims to help, uplift, and support those who are deprived of certain services and rights. Believing in a greater cause and fulfilling a greater purpose, the college has adopted five villages in the district of Raigad under NSS and Unnat Bharat Abhiyan: Mazgoan, Karade, Gulsunde, Parade and Posri. Being socially aware, the college opts to provide support through its outreach programmes.
The college view of higher education has never been a simplistic and one-sided one. It concerns all-round development with a special focus on critical practice that engages students to yoke their academic excellence, their character development, and their personal concern for the transformation of a society deeply disturbed by inequality and injustice. In line with its vision of working towards the socio-economic development of the country, PHCASC has taken utmost care to give back to the community. Several committees have been formed to carry out the duties towards society. Our college has earned accolades from locals, government agencies, and non-governmental organisations for engaging in outreach programmes.
An outreach program’s three main objectives are to develop communities, encourage civic involvement, and enhance learning. Our college provides services to those who are deprived of certain services and rights. It involves education, social planning, health support and other such projects that support their welfare.
Community Service Day
Engaging in community service provides the students with an opportunity to become active members of their community thereby providing a positive impact on society at large. Every year our college visits ‘Vanvasi Kalyan Ashram’ -an old age home- as part of extending our community service activities.
