St. Mira’s College is a part of the “Mira Movement in Education”. Founded in the year 1962, St. Mira’s is a dream realization of the progressive, visionary, saint, philosopher Sadhu T.L.Vaswani. Eminent citizens, well versed in academics, with strong leanings toward social issues and student welfare, grace the managing committee of the college.
Proactivity and progression are the hallmark features of the college – this is easily evidenced in the fact that the college enjoys the rare honour of being the first city college, affiliated to Pune University, to be accredited by NAAC as also the first accredited Arts and Commerce college to go autonomous. This milestone easily distinguishes us on the educational firmament. The college is a well-acclaimed institution for degree courses with an outstanding record of high academic results, well-placed alumni, accountability, well-established self-correcting mechanisms and healthy practices.
It is my privilege to welcome you to the Mira family. Today, India is on the threshold of stupendous growth and I know you all look forward to entering this world of opportunity with élan.
There will be many challenges faced by you as citizens of this great country- shortage of water, growing pollution, depleting natural resources, depletion of available land for agriculture, lack of availability of uniform opportunity to all citizens, the problem of injected terrorism and of course vital moral dilemmas such as efficiency and ethics, wealth and welfare, profits and piety, failures and faith, and competition and conscience.
St. Mira’s College provided a secure space for girls like me. As I completed my graduation and post-graduation, I learnt many life skills which helped me look at my problems more meaningfully.

My journey at St Mira's has been a fulfilling one. It has resulted in my holistic development as an individual. St Mira's College has kindled the light of the path of my academic success that resulted in my admission at the London School of Economics and Political Science. St Mira’s College for me is an institution that not only nurtures fine academic minds but builds character of every student fortunate to be a part of the Mira journey.
