Shivraj Arts Commerce and D.S. Kadam Science College - SCAC Kolhapur - SCAC

Late Shri. V.T. Patil, the President of Tararani Vidyapeeth, is the founding father of Shivraj College of Arts & Commerce. The objectives before him were o provide higher educational facilities to the educationally backward areas of Gadhinglaj, Ajara and Chandgad. Our college was inaugurated at the hands of Balasaheb Desai the then Minister of Education, the Government of Maharashtra in Maharani Radhabai High school, Gadhinglaj on June, 26 th 1964.

In 1967 Shri. V. T. Patil and Dr. S. S. Ghali approached the concerned farmers and appealed them to give away their land for the academic infrastructure. The concerned farmers agreed to transfer their land to Shivraj College with just a token amount. Their solemn sacrifice is beyond the level of verbal expression.
 In the year 1974 Shivraj College was handed over to Karmveer Vitthal Ramaji Shinde Shikshan Sanstha, Gadhinglaj. Hon. Shri. Balasaheb alias R. S. Mane, the President of Karmveer Vitthal Ramaji Shinde Shikshan Sanstha, Gadhinglaj gave the dynamic leadership to this institute. He tried his best to fulfill the educational needs of the students of this area by introducing the faculty of Science both at Junior and Senior College level. Shri. D. S. Kadam then Vice-president donated Rs. Two Lac to meet the expenses of the faculty of Science. Hon. Shri. Balasaheb alias R. S. Mane, Shri. D. S. Kadam concentrated on the construction of new buildings. The foundation stone of the new building was laid at the hands of Hon. Yashavantrao Chavan and Hon. Vasantdada Patil the then Chief Minister of Maharashtra.

Prof. K. V. Kurade has been the founder member of Karmveer Vitthal Ramaji Shinde Shikshan Sanstha, Gadhinglaj. Right from his youth, he was keen on getting the support of his friends and guidance of student's e.g. Dr. A.G. Powar, Barr. P. G. Patil and the then Home minister of Maharashtra Balasaheb Desai. During the phase of transition he devoted himself to make Karmveer Vitthal Ramaji Shinde Shikshan Sanstha, Gadhinglaj as a mass movement. His contribution in the field of Co-operation is marvelous. His Dynamism, foresight and commitment to the cause of higher education are reflected in the policies of our Sanstha. Under his guidance our institution has started the professional courses - B.Sc. (Computer Science), B. C. S. and B. B. A. Also, the institute has proposed to start a degree course in Bio -Technology, Information - technology and B. C. A. Our secretary B N Chandake has been a self-disciplined academician and the Principal of repute.
