Principal's Message

Dr. Gurunath J. Fagare
Principal, Kisan Veer Mahavidyalaya, Wai

Janata Shikshan Sanstha’s Kisan Veer Mahavidyalaya, Wai has a very great tradition of imparting education to the rural students. Established in 1962 by Kisan Mahadev Veer, a veteran freedom fighter, with the help of Tarkateertha Laxmanshashtri Joshi, a renowned Sanskrit scholar, the college made a humble beginning with only 80 students. For a long time, the college had been providing only graduate and postgraduate education in Arts and Commerce faculties.

After the demise of Kisan Veer, "Arts and Commerce College, Wai" was renamed as "Kisan Veer Mahavidyalaya, Wai". Hon. Prataprao Bhosale became the President and Hon. Laxmanrao Jadhav-Patil, the Vice-President of the Sanstha. Science Faculty was added in 1982. The Management has also made available Yashwantrao Chavan Maharashtra Open University, Nashik’s distance education centre and Bachelor of Computer Applications Course. Recently, the Management has introduced M. Sc. in Organic Chemistry. It has also started Psychology and Statistics at the third year degree level.

Taking into consideration the changing needs of the students, the Management has constructed Women’s Hostel and Indoor Sports Hall with the UGC financial assistance. The college has also excellent support services in the form of Library, Science Laboratories, Language Laboratory, Lunch Hall, Canteen, Parking, Students’ Cooperative Store, Playground, Mango Orchard, etc.

The Management has undertaken a very innovative and service-oriented project of providing free education and free accommodation to the students belonging to the families affected by the suicides of farmers in Maharashtra. Some students from Jammu and Kashmir State have also started taking education in our college under Prime Minister’s Special Scholarship Scheme.

The college feels proud of its alumni which has been rendering valuable service in different fields of life. Our students have excellent track record in academics. They also excel in Sports, NSS, NCC, Cultural Department, College Magazine Competition, etc. at University, State, National and sometimes, International levels.

I am proud of my well-qualified teaching staff and efficient administrative staff. I express my deep sense of gratitude to the noble Management for giving me an opportunity to work as the Principal of this esteemed college.

I feel proud to state that at present, more than three thousand students have been taking higher education in our college. I make an appeal to all the students of the college to take utmost advantage of different curricular and co-curricular activities and to make maximum use of our excellent support services. I wish them every success for their better future.
