The passage provides insight into the establishment and evolution of the S. M. Patel College of Home Science, which was founded in 1971 by the eminent Home Scientist, Madam B. Tarabai. Supported by donations from Shri Manibhai Shivabhai Patel and the brothers of Sojitra Village, the college was built in honor of Shri Shivabhai Patel. Since its inception, the college has been under the patronage of Charutar Vidya Mandal and has thrived as a center for Home Science education in India.

As the college celebrates its Golden Jubilee Year (2020-2021), it stands as a testament to its commitment to women's empowerment through education. Being the only women's college in the Charutar area, it provides formal and non-formal education streams to empower young women professionally for the challenges of the competitive world.

The S. M. Patel College of Home Science plays a dynamic role in enhancing the competency of families and communities, thereby striving for excellence in life through education. Affiliated with Sardar Patel University, Vallabh Vidyanagar, near Anand, famously known as the Milk City of India, the college operates autonomously.

Symbolized by an open book, the college's logo embodies its commitment to spreading the light of knowledge. Its motto, 'Vidyaratana Mahadhanam', signifies the belief in education as the greatest wealth that ignites minds for a better tomorrow.
