Legacy of MKSSS:

Prof. Dhondo Keshav Karve was one of the first visionaries who realized that women can gain respect and emancipation only through modern education. On 14 June 1896, he started his work with the objectives of uplifting, emancipating and educating women who formed a major section of the socially downtrodden in Indian society.

As a small seed grows into a huge banyan tree by branching out, the singular idea of liberating women through education has branched far and wide culminating in a huge educational institution, now known as “Maharshi Karve Stree Shikshan Samstha”(MKSSS). Now it runs 62 different institutes and colleges including teachers training, engineering, architecture, Fashion technology and Media Education.
