Shri Shivaji College Of Arts, Commerce & Science, Akola


Shri Shivaji College of Arts & Commerce was established in 1963 under the sincere guidance of a great visionary, academician and social reformist, Dr. Panjabrao alias Bhausaheb Deshmukh the first agriculture minister, Govt. of India and Dr. Abasaheb Khedkar, the rural development minister of the Govt. Maharashtra. Shri Shivaji College of Arts, Commerce and Science, Akola is situated in western Vidarbha region of Maharashtra and affiliated to Sant Gadge Baba Amravati University, Amravati. The institution always strived for quality sustenance and enhancement in higher education. It was imparting only formal education in the faculty of Humanities and Commerce. But considering the importance of science and technology, the faculty of science was started in 1967.
