About

Institute Type: other

Arts, Science and Commerce College, Rahuri was established in July 1978,under the leadership of president Dr. Baburao Bapuji Tanpure and under the guidance of Shri. Prasad Baburao Tanpure (former MLA and MP). The objective behind the establishment of the college was to meet the academic requirements and to bring about the all-round development of rural students. Prior to the establishment of the College, the female students and the socially and economically disadvantaged students in the Tehsil were deprived of higher education simply due to the non-availability of the facility in the Tehsil itself. Parents were reluctant to send girls to distant places for higher education; and the socially and economically disadvantaged students could not afford the luxury of taking higher education in other places. With the establishment of the College, the Management has brought higher education to the doorsteps of the masses in Rahuri Tehsil and has made available the opportunity of higher education to all such students.

 

The objectives behind the establishment of the College were:

  • To make higher education available to all people irrespective of class, creed and sex.
  • To promote the cause of education among the rural masses.
  • To make available the facility of higher education to female students
  • To develop learned and skilled manpower in society.
  • Upliftment of economically backward class students and marginal students.

 

Keeping in view the aforementioned goals and objectives, due emphasis is given on higher education of female students as well as the education of the economically weaker and socially backward class students in the catchment area of the College. The large number of female students and the socially and economically disadvantaged students taking education in the College every year is a clear indication of our commitment to the upliftment of such students. The College has also made available the distance education facility for students who cannot take education in the formal education system. The College provides every possible assistance to the economically, socially and educationally backward rural students for completing their higher education. It plays an important role in the upliftment of the youth in nearby and remote places of the Tehshil.

 

Initially the college began with the enrolment of 91 students in Arts and Commerce wings. Prin. G. G. Varpe headed the College. During the tenure of Principal P. E. Bharadi, who succeeded Prin. G.G. Varpe (1980-81), the College was registered under section 2(f) of U.G.C. Act. 1956, Dr. G. L. Gabale succeeded Prin. P. E. Bharadi in 1981. He continued in office for a period of seven years (1981-88). During his tenure Science wing was established in the College in 1982. Since April 1988 Prof. A. A. Bhand is in the chair of principal. During twenty two years he put in his efforts to boost the activities of the College. The College was granted permanent affiliation by the University of Pune in 1991. The post-graduate course M. Com. was started in 1989; M.A. English and M. A. History were started in 1993; and in 1994 M. A. in Political Science was introduced. The College was registered under section 12 (b) of the UGC act.1956 and was declared eligible to receive UGC Grants in 1994. Since then the College received sanction of grants from U.G.C. to the tune of Rs.1,50,57,000/-. With the valuable assistance from honourable shareholders of the Sakhar Karkhana, the Management constructed laboratory building and classroom building having the total construction area of 60,000 square feet. A separate library building and a canteen building have been constructed with the financial assistance from UGC. Under its Xth plan UGC granted (Special Scheme) Rs. One core for the construction of Womens’ Hostel. After the superannuation of Prin. A.A. Bhand, Prof. R.N. Deshmukh shouldered the responsibility of I/C Principal till the appointment of Dr. Sambhaji Pathare as the new principal. At present the college is advancing towards the excellence under the innovative and constructive guidance of Dr. Sambhaji Pathare.

The College has a huge beautiful campus( More than one lakh square feet), which is located on Nagar-Manmad State Highway (S.H. No. 10) and is easily approachable from majority of villages in Rahuri Tehsil. From the academic perspective, the College gives due emphasis on personality development of individual students.
