The college was established out of a very imaginative activity of social workers and cotton-market members. Amongst them were late. President Pundlikrao Choudhari, Late Dr. J. N. Korpe and Late B. B. Bhende. Akot thluka is famous for cotton production. During 1960, above six thousand cotton loaded bullock-carts were brought by farmers in market. Above members requested each farmer to donate one rupee per cart and farmers who were starving for higher education also responded to the mission enthusinastically and collected 3 lakh rupees and doneted it to the society. Dr. J.N.Korpe generously donated the building of freedom fighter Shri Govindsingh Killedar which was owned by Janpad sabha. He also donated Rs.10,000/- to begin the college.
Thus the faculty of Arts began in 1960, Commerce in 1962 and Science in 1980. Since 1960 the college has received ample response from society and made rapid progress in education field. Today the college has Arts, Commerce and Science faculties with Junior college and M.C.V.C. Arts faculty has Post Graduation in Marathi, English and Economics.
Teaching staff of the college is efficient and studious, working with zeal for brightening the academic career of the students. Well-equipped laboratories are the major assets of the college. The college has a spacious ground for the games and sport activities as well as a large auditorium for the cultural and educational activities. The ecofriendly and large premises with flora and fauna add to the beauty of the college and makes it a worthy place for learning. N. S. S. and N. C. C. units take efforts for overall personality development of the students and keep them attached with the society. A rich library is the soul of the college and so our college has a rich and well facilited library to pacify the thirst for knowledge. The college with all its potential and capacity strives for the welfare of the students and provide them qualitiy education to make them able to face the challenges of the new globalised world.
