"Success comes to those who work hard and stays with those, who don’t rest on the laurels of the past."

Dear Students and Parents,

You are indeed blessed to find an opportunity to get education at one of the best colleges in Kolhapur, Rajarshi Chhatrapati Shahu College (RCSC) which has been nurtured and benedicted by the great Karmaveer Bhaurao Patil’ Alias ‘Anna’ divine and celestial vision. The college has the privilege of having a healthy, harmonious ambience and rich values which have played pivotal role in shaping the future of innumerable students. Our mission is to transform students into rational thinkers, competent workers, law abiding citizens and spiritually enlightened individuals. This is my firm belief that the rich values and traditions imbibed here would carry you to greater heights.

It is a matter of pride that the college has been granted ‘A’ grade in NACC accreditation in 2017. This could be possible with the blessings of holy Karmaveer and hard work done by college staff and students under the guidance of visionary management.

Nurturing a student is one of the greatest recognising of all. RCSC provides an environment that nurtures the young mind, body and spirit, metamorphasing them in to repositories of knowledge and capable of facing the challenges of growing up with grace.

RCSC endeavours to touch the height of excellence in higher education under the aegis of Rayat Shikshan Sanstha that has vision to excel.

RCSC is a co educational college that follows SUK (Shivaji University, Kolhapur) curriculum where teacher ensures individual attention to the student and caters their different learning styles guided by highly qualified and trained teachers. Here every student is appreciated, encouraged and ignited to imbibe, innovate, inspire, excel and acquire skills that, nurtures the thrill of growing up into a recognisable and balanced adult.

With proud legacy of 55 years, the college has excelled in every field. Many students have registered their presence in the merit list of Shivaji University and others have brought laurels in cultural activities in zonal and inter-zonal youth festivals.We are university champion in sports and have won the trophy this year also. Students educated from the college have carved a niche for themselves in various fields at national and international levels.

Aristotle once said that, “Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.” Even as we impart education to match the advancement in technology and globalization, we march our student ahead with Rayat Shikshan Sanstha’s ethos of moral values and principles. We endeavour constantly to instil these qualities in our student. We pride ourselves to help them grow and develop into sensitive and responsible citizens of the next generation.

A committed and supportive management, dedicated teachers, caring and co-operative parents blend harmoniously to create a student-centric environment. It is natural to find in this ambience, the intensive use of a variety of thinking activities, strategies and group dynamics so that the classrooms become alive.

Teamwork is the hallmark of our institute.

Dear students, in this era of cut throat competition, it is of paramount importance to be equipped with appropriate knowledge, habits, attitudes and values leading to holistic development. Co-curricular and extra-curricular activities organised by various departments, clubs and societies facilitate the process of creative and critical thinking. They not only inculcate social and moral values, compassion for nature, pride for Indian culture and tradition and awareness for one’s rights and duties but also make students good human beings and confident leaders. I intently believe that you would develop versatile personality during your stay in this temple of learning.

The Institution being situated in the slum area, strives of impart education to the children of slum dwellers belonging to the deprived classes. Most of them are first generation learners. The strength of our institution is our location and dedicated management.

To be successful in life, have ambitions and define your goals clearly. Discipline and hard work is the key to success. Be regular in your classes and focus on your goals. Your concerted efforts with the able guidance of your teachers would definitely provide you a blissful and successful life.

I, on behalf of RCSC family welcome all the students and wish you all the best for achieving greater success and scaling new heights in the coming session.

With blessing and warm wishes

Dr. Suresh Salunkhe
