Shri Dhokeshwar College was established in 1994 on unaided basis with single faculty of Arts. The very modest objective of founders behind establishing this college in Draught-Prone Area like Takali Dhokeshwar village & its vicinity was to promote education among the deprived classes & especially the girl students, lacking opportunity at a convenient place.
It received permanent affiliation in 2004 from University of Pune now called as Savitribai Phule Pune University. After completing seven years of its existence & by giving out excellent results in the University Examination, Govt. of Maharashtra was pleased to extend 100% grant since Academic Year 2000-2001. College went through NAAC accreditation process in 2003. As result of it at its successive stages new faculties, courses were initiated like Science Faculty in 2008, Travel & Tourism in 2010, and Commerce Faculty in 2013. The college came to be recognized under 2 F &12 B by University Grant Commission since 2006. But, due to change in the name of college it got a new recognition on 14/04/2014. Meanwhile womens hostel was built with support of UGC grants.
The college strives to develop all round personality of students and hence is very keen to provide coaching in curricular, co-curricular, extra-curricular activities. To provide for Whole Man is the objective of our institution. To be very modest, it won’t be out of place to say that we have succeeded in achieving this goal to a certain extent.
