Welcome to Commerce & Arts College, Roha
‘Roha’ was a small town with a population of 7,000 to 8,000 having M.I.D.C. Area in 1982. Our Society’s Junior college was already working since 1975 but there was no opportunity to students for higher education after passing 12th Std. around 50k.m. areas. It was not possible for economically weaker and poor students to take higher Education. Principal S.R. Mehendale of Mehendale High School and Junior College realized this need of higher education and so he along with Shri. Madhuanna Gangal forward a proposal of establishing senior college before honourable chairman of Konkan Education Society . He immediately accepted & implemented the proposal.
In July 1983, the college was started on non-grant basis in the premises of Mehendale High School with Commerce faculty with just 40 students. Konkan Education Society has taken whole hearted initiative and keen interest in making available the basic infrastructure facility in the form of independent building in good and fresh environment by investing approximately Rs. 16.00 Lakhs. So, we were in a position to shift the college in it’s own building in June 1991. In 1993 which was 10th anniversary year of the college, we have taken one step ahead by adding Arts faculty on no grant basis. Which was the need and demand of students & parents.
In December 1996, the Arts faculty was named “Sau. Kusumtai Govind Tamhane Arts College. In the 2002-2003, we construct and extended building with big Conference Hall on ground floor and Library with Reading Room on the 1st floor. We also provided separate Gymkhana and Common Rooms for Boys and Girls. We have strong and effective teaching, learning and evaluation system. In the new education process, there is a shift of the system of education from teacher centered to student centered . Our Teachers are using modern teaching aids with number of innovative ideas for enhancing and challenging the learning potential of the student. We give equal importance to overall personality development of student by promoting cultural, sports and social aspects of the students. We provide excellent infrastructural and positive support for improving various skills of students. During February, 2012 we completed college’s NAAC Re-accreditation process and National Assessment and Accreditation Council ( NAAC ), the autonomous body of University Grant Commission (UGC) has awarded us ‘B’ Grade with CGPA 2.62 . In the Academic Year 2012-13, the college has been honored with “Best College Award 2011-12” by University of Mumbai. This encouraged our journey towards the excellence in higher education.
