Overview

Centre for Distance Education, Shivaji University, Kolhapur was established in 1968. In order to enhance the quality of their education and reach out to the larger section of the society which has for various reasons remained distant from the portals of learning - be it the working service class, women, housewives or those who have aspirations for furthering their education, the Shivaji University, aiming at social inclusion has opened its doors to them by proposing the Centre for Distance Education (CDE). CDE became an independent unit in the year 2007.

 

The University imparts education in 10 major faculties of Arts, Social Science, Science, Commerce, Education, Fine Arts, Law, Medicine, Ayurvedic Medicine, Engineering and Technology. Through National Service Scheme (NSS) and regularly held extracurricular activities, students get a chance to develop their personality.
