It is my immense pleasure to extend my sincere greetings for Warananagar. It is one of the educational and co-operative hubs in Maharashtra, Kolhapur district, which provides educational facilities right from K.G. to P.G.

The institution Yashwantrao Chavan Warana Mahavidyalaya, and Warana Education Society are established in 1964 by the great visionary knowable Sahakarmaharshi late Shri Tatyasaheb Kore. He realized the need of providing the facility of higher education to the rural youths. His dream was to achieve the unique place in the field of education. He wished to create a ‘New Man’ (Nava Manus), by bringing about education. He established Warana Education Society and Y C Warana Mahavidyalaya with Mission “nava maanavaa saaka$” (to create a New Man).

This is the World of information and technology. Vast information is available around you. Let us transform it into knowledge, which will ultimately turn into wisdom by practical application. Our institution works for this transformation.

We offer education in various disciplines like Arts, Commerce and Science at Junior as well as senior level, along with HSVC. We also provide post Graduate courses in the subject of Marathi, Economics and History. We run Nine Career Oriented Courses which are approved by UGC. We have reputation of good results. Even some of the students have bagged University Merit Scholarship and University ranks for their outstanding performance.

The college has celebrated it’s Golden Jubilee and has been Accredited and Re-accredited by NAAC Banglore. (To all our stake holders and well wishers. As per the theme of UGC for community College, this college will be Ideal College to receive the Grants for the same.) To this date, we have enrolled more than 95000 students for higher education. I would like to mention here that we have got ‘Registered Alumni’. The University authorities have sanctioned us ‘Centre for Distance Education’ and at present more than 1000 students are taking benefit of it. In sports, we have kept our reputation. We have received innumerable Trophies and Awards in various events. We have the championship in ‘Mallakhamb’. Our Mallakhamb team is the winner of University level R. P. Powar Trophy for 34 years in a row. We also have Women’s Hockey Championship continuously for 15 years.

On behalf of the institution and college, I invite you to visit the lush green campus with Eco-friendly, pleasant and healthy atmosphere. The beautiful panoramic view, along with well qualified, dedicated and efficient staff. Spacious and well equipped infrastructure of college support the quality education. We not only educate the students but also inculcate and nurture ethics and values in them. We conduct co-curricular activities like NCC for Girls and Boys, NSS. We are proud to have a magnificent and recently built Gymkhana hall, IT Lab, Centre for competitive examination studies, enriched library with OPAC,

None the less the whole campus is Wi-Fi to tune up with the needs of Globalization. This itself reflects our multipronged approach to extend access, equity and quality. When Ex-president of India Hon’ble Dr. A.P.J. Kalam paid a visit to this campus, he admired the development of Rural Area.

Your suggestion and ideas would be appreciated and valued for better qualitative improvement of our Institution.
