Shri Vitthal Rukmini Arts, Commerce & Science College, Sawana is the fulfillment of Late Balasaheb Deshmukh Sawanekar’s long cherished dream to provide higher education to the rural people especially the girls of Mahagaon Taluka. As there was no facility of higher education for the girls in the region keeping this in mind the college was established in 1984 by Shree Shivaji Education Society Pusad under the able guidance of Shri Vitthalrao Deshmukh Sawanaker, Deoraoji Patil Chondhikar (Ex MLC) and Vijayraoji Patil Chondhikar (Ex. MLC).
The college, established in 1984 with 38 students had only Arts stream. Subsequently, commerce stream was started in 1985. To encourage the most rural Students for higher education the college constructed a small hostel for boys. The vision and zeal of late Shri Balasaheb Deshmukh Sawanekar founder of the college dedicated efforts of Vijayraoji Patil Chondhikar and Shree Shivajirao Deshmukh Sawanekar have contributed to the growth of the college. Due to the more demand for the admission the college has started section for B.A. First year in year.
In the year 2009 we have started the Science faculty to fulfill the need of the students in the region. Hon’ble Shri Shivajirao Deshmukh Sawanekar has taken utmost efforts to start the Science stream. The institution is engaged in Imparting education to students from different corners of Mahagaon Taluka and nearby region. Our approach also involves working with parents to meet the individual needs of every student, and supporting them to fulfill their academic and co-curricular goals.
The institution is engaged in the task of transmission of knowledge through organizing seminars, conferences, workshops, Science exhibition, Poster presentation, competitive examination classes, Extra coaching for weak students, Social work through NSS etc.
It is also my goal to make the rural students responsible citizens of the country. This small college has been bestowed with a team of dedicated, efficient teaching and non-teaching staff. The college has separate library with more than 3000 books are available for the students, staff & local readers.
Its gives great pleasure for me to invite the rural Boys and Girls students in this Academic campus for their overall development.
