Doshi Kalidas Virji Arts & Science College, Jamnagar is one of the three pioneering institutes of higher education in Saurashtra region of Gujarat, inaugurated by our celebrated teacher and then Vice-President of India Dr S. Radhakrishnan on 15/10/1955. The institute is named after a philanthropist and former accountant of the princely state of Jamnagar Mr Kalidas Doshi who donated a generous amount for the building. Maharaja Digvijaysinhji, then Jamsahib of Jamnagar, donated 14.13 acres of land for the cause. Dolarrai Mankad, a leading educationist and literary critic, envisaged the dream of Shree Kalidas Doshi of establishing a college in Jamnagar region. The college had been the only college in the district (till 2016) and the only Government college till date. The college offers undergraduate courses for Arts faculty (8 subjects) and for science faculty (5 subjects). The college runs two self-financed courses like Bachelor in Computer Education (B.C.A.) and postgraduate course’s availability for students of English language & literature (M.A.). This institute has been, thus, catering the need for higher education in the district for more than 65 years.
The institute envisions to provide a qualitative atmosphere of learning for the students getting educated and trained for the progression inside academia and betterment of society through their enhanced skills.
In today's information and technology-driven society, the boundaries of education are constantly growing. In this context, our college strives to promote an exceptional atmosphere that is sensitive to the needs of individuals while also aiming to match the quality of education to the needs of the current moment. I hope that every student at this college, from both the arts and science streams, will take the information they have gained here and share it with the rest of the world. Each student must become an accomplished citizen of our wonderful country and make a significant contribution with his or her intelligence. "Satyam, Shivam, Sundaram" is the most delightful credo that must be followed in order to live a satisfactory existence, and we pray that all students will live their lives in the direction of these three fundamental truths.
