About Arts, Science and Commerce College, Rahuri

Arts, Science and Commerce College, Rahuri was established in July 1978,under the leadership of president Dr. Baburao Bapuji Tanpure and under the guidance of Shri. Prasad Baburao Tanpure (former MLA and MP). The objective behind the establishment of the college was to meet the academic requirements and to bring about the all-round development of rural students. Prior to the establishment of the College, the female students and the socially and economically disadvantaged students in the Tehsil were deprived of higher education simply due to the non-availability of the facility in the Tehsil itself. Parents were reluctant to send girls to distant places for higher education; and the socially and economically disadvantaged students could not afford the luxury of taking higher education in other places. With the establishment of the College, the Management has brought higher education to the doorsteps of the masses in Rahuri Tehsil and has made available the opportunity of higher education to all such students.


A vast rural population in general and the disadvantaged section of the society in particular has no easy access to higher education. Socio-economic and geographical disparities are the bottle-neck in the progress' of rural masses preventing them to join the mainstream. Knowledge throws open the doors of wisdom.
