About College            About Sanstha          Vision and Mission


Kakasaheb Chavan College, Talmavale was established in June 1969 by Shri Swami Vivekanand Shikshan Sanstha, Kolhapur. The great educationist and freedom fighter, Shikshanmaharshi Dr. Bapuji Salunkhe had founded the institution in 1954 with a motto “ ज्ञान, विज्ञान आणि सुसंस्कार यांसाठी शिक्षणप्रसार ” i.e. ‘ Dissemination of Education for Knowledge, Science and Ehical Values’. Kakasaheb Chavan, a visionary politician, social reformer and freedom fighter from Kumbhargaon village near Talmavale helped Bapuji in establishing schools, hostels and a college in the remote, hilly area of Patan Tehsil, which is known as Wang valley. As a token of gratitude, the college has been named after Kakasaheb Chavan. The college opened up new opportunities of higher education and employment for the people in this socially and economically backward region. The college has been included in 2(f) 12 (b) and it is permanently affiliated to Shivaji University, Kolhapur.

          The college offers B. Com. and B.A. programmes with specialization in English, Marathi, Hindi, History and Economics. We also offer the B.A. and B.Com. programmes of ‘Yashwantrao Chavan Maharashtra Open University, Nasik in distance mode. Thus the college helps in providing higher educational opportunities to people who cannot pursue regular courses. The college has 2 NSS units with 200 volunteers and it has contributed significantly to social service in the nearby villages.
The college twice got prestigious ‘Best Rural College in Shivaji University ‘ Award in  2002-03 and  2005-06.  The college had been making constant efforts to get N.C.C. units.  In 2016 -17  the N.C.C. 19 MAH Batallion, Karad sanctioned the open unit to the college.
