About Institute

“ About Institute We wish to make a special mention of the fact that when this college was established, a considerable number of students of this college were from extremely poor families located in drought-prone areas of this district. In fact, several constraints were preventing them from the very idea of going for higher education. Nearly 30% of the students admitted to 1st year and had joined “Earn and Learn Scheme” for fulfilling their thirst and earning for higher education. Some of them are Counselors, Programmer, Extensi0nofficer, Supervisor etc. Some of have become extremely successful entrepreneurs.”

This institute was established in 1997 under the leadership of the great visionary, Padmabhushan Balasaheb Vikhe Patil. This step proved to be a golden opportunity for girls, who were kept in the darkness of ignorance for ages. The situation, of course, did not change instantly, even after the establishment of this college. Due to the teamwork of faculty for motivating the parents through interactive programmes like “Teacher Guardian Scheme”, special coaching, personal attention given in this college created faith, confidence, a sense of belonging and attachment among the students and parents.

Students, especially from poor families, preferred to be part of this college and were proud of being its alumni. Various activities and programmes organized by the college for educational and academic excellence of our students changed the educational environment to a higher degree of congeniality. The outlook of rural society is also modified considerably. The acceptance of new technology many of the youth have also entered self-employment in entrepreneurship and service sectors. We hope that the progressive Endeavour’s and activities of our college will help to increase women’s status in society.
