Konkan Gyanpeeth Uran College of Commerce and Arts has been a relatively small college functioning in the semi-urban area of Uran Dist. Raigad since 17th June, 1989. Uran is located in Konkan area of Maharashtra. Before 1989 there were no facilities for higher education in Uran Tahsil. Hon’ble Shri P.N.Dharkar, Chairman of Konkan Gyanpeeth and Ex-minister of Higher & Technical Education, Maharashtra State, established a multi faculty college at Uran to make up this deficiency.

The Konkan Gyanpeeth Sanstha and Uran College of Commerce & Arts is determined to impart higher education to boys and girls in this rural area. The beginning of such a task was fraught with problems and hurdles. Our management, teaching and non-teaching staff members were well prepared to face any problem that be fell them. They never shirked from their responsibility to change the minds of the parents in favour of higher education for their daughters. Thus our staff members paved the way for boys and girls to join our college.
