Jaysingpur is a peaceful and planned township surrounded by serene and lush green fields. It is situated on the main road from Kolhapur to Sangli and is well connected with all the major cities in Maharashtra by Rail Way too. Miraj, a major junction on Southern Railway is only 10 Kms away. Narsinhawadi, Bahubali, Khidrapur, Jotiba, Panhala, Kaneri and Ramling are very much in the nearby vicinity of Jaysingpur Kolhapur worshiped as 'Dakshin Kashi' which is also the second cultural & historical Capital of Maharashtra is only at half an hour's run from Jaysingpur.
Jaysingpur College, Jaysingpur was established by Anekant Society way back in 1964 with the inspiration from the blessings of Saint Late Samantbhadra Maharaj. The Jain Philosophical concept ‘Siddhiranekantat’ became the motto and ‘Anekantwad’ found its name in the nomenclature of society. It was indeed laudable to think of providing higher education to rural students at that point of time, more so, when there was no college of higher education within a radius of 40 kilometers. Thus that segment of society which stood deprived of higher education till 1961 found a ray of bright future and hope from the academic point of view.
The college is affiliated to the Shivaji University, Kolhapur. The college is government funded as per provisions of the rules of grant-in-aid scheme as operative in Government affiliated colleges. It is creditable for the college to start some, self-financing courses with a view to augment financial sources and also to provide job-oriented education to the students. The College has three faculties namely Arts, Commerce and Science. It runs at UG level B.A., B. Com.B.Sc., B.B.A., B.C.A., B.C.S., each of three years duration.
The College has also opened an autonomous institute namely ‘Institute of English and Foreign Languages’. A wide range of comprehensive courses in English, Japanese, Chinese, French, German is offered in the said institute.
