History of College

Jawali is a hilly and remote Tehsil in the district Satara. It is a tehsil divided into several streams by the ranges of the Sahyadri Mountain. Being hilly and scantily populated, people here remained ignorant about the changes taking place around in the developed world. The modern means of communication and transport were yet to be made available for the people when Hon. Shri. Shashikant Shinde founded Jaywant Pratishthan at Humgaon in 2000. The Pratishthan runs a High School, a Junior College, and a Senior College. The Pratishthan functions with the chief objective of all round development of student. The motto of our Pratishthan is “Udyamenahi Sidhanti Karyani na Manorathai” which means to give priority to work instead of only dreaming.

In the age of explosion of knowledge, the students of Jawali Tehsil remained deprived of even the functional higher education. It is with the establishment of Amdar Shashikant Shinde Mahavidyalay, Medha, in 2002 Hon. Shashikant Shinde was able to bring a large group of students deprived of higher education into the mainstream. The first batch of this college began with 82 students. Today more than 1000 students are availing higher education in both the wings senior and junior.
