Basaveshwara College of Commerce, Arts & Science was established in 1982 as a realisation of a dream of the founders of the Sri Jagajyoti Sahakara Sangha to start an institution of higher learning.
The institution has the vision of imparting quality education at moderate cost to promote inclusive learning. Always adhering to the tenets laid down by Lord Basaveshwara, the college promotes simple living and high thinking. Great thrust is given to the encouragement of students from the socially and economically marginalised sections of society. More than 50% of our students receive freeships and scholarships of one kind or another. The college arranges remedial classes for slow learners by utilising UGC funds.
The academic year 2010-11 was particularly memorable for the members of the Basaveshwara fraternity. The degree college which was set up with only the Commerce faculty in 1982, boasts of Arts, Science and Management faculties as well now. The college celebrated the silver jubilee in a grand and befitting manner.
This NAAC accredited institution was reaccredited with a ‘B’ grade in 2010, for a further period of five years. This has given an impetus for further growth and improvement. The college is located in a good residential area and is well-connected to all parts of the city. The class-rooms are spacious and well ventilated. The corridors and staircases are broad and well planned. A large playground and a beautiful garden add joy to learning. The college has augmented the laboratory facilities adequately with the funds obtained from UGC and internal sources. The library has been shifted to a well planned, well lit, spacious, new floor, and has a collection of over 24,000 books.
The College admits students from all sections of society and of mixed abilities. Although a large number of students hail from and semi-urban areas, the college takes pride to say that its dedicated staff has maintained the results at a high level.
Some of our students have performed exceedingly well in University examinations and brought laurels to the institution. Sri. Soumith Chourasia and Kum.Kavya have bagged ranks in science & sanskrit and were awarded medals and certificates by the university. In the previous academic year Kum. Rashmi D.P of final B.A. was awarded the 10th rank by Bangalore University.
