Shikshan Vikas Mandal's S. H. Kelkar College of Arts, Commerce and Science in Deogad. its constituents, are a family of some 2500 students taking education at Junior, Senior- under graduate and post graduate levels in Arts, Commerce and Science disciplines with 150 staff members.
A picturesque campus sprawling on nearly 15 acres of land of its own in the lap of nature, Smt. Neerabai Jagannath Parkar Vidyanagari presently housing two full-fledged colleges viz. Shri S.H.Kelkar college of Arts, Commerce & Science and S.K.Pant Walawalkar college of Education- both affiliated to University of Mumbai- is indeed a testimony of a truly materialized dream of Shikshan Vikas Mandal, Devgad, a parent body, which started its mission of higher education in Devgad- a remote and educationally backward, hilly region- in 1974.
The mission statement reads: ‘Shikshan Vikas Mandal is committed to the cause of empowerment of rural youth through access to education, particularly higher education, enabling them to develop as intellectually alive, socially responsible citizens ever ready for continuous personal and professional growth… to inculcate social, moral and spiritual values. Further, it is committed to provide wide range of professional and vocational courses besides conventional ones for rural students to meet the changing needs.
An attempt through education to free people from all kinds of shackles- social, religious, of convention and superstitious, political, of caste and communalism.
