Vision Mission Objectives Bharati Vidyapeeth is an organization with a difference. It has its own well defined ideological orientation and commitments. Social transformation in a desired direction is one of its cherished goals and it believes that education can be an effective prime mover for such social transformation.
Dr. Patangrao Kadam has very aptly coined "Social Transformation through Dynamic Education" as the official motto of Bharati Vidyapeeth. Education can be an effective instrument of social change, if it is dynamic. This conceptualization of dynamic education at Bharati Vidyapeeth is reflected in the innovative academic programmes and activities carried out in its institutions.
Bharati Vidyapeeth as an educational organization has committed itself:
To make available quality education in different areas of knowledge to the students as per their choice and inclination
To offer education to the students in a conducive ambience created by enriched infrastructure! and academic facilities in its campuses
To bring education within the reach of rural, tribal and girl students by providing them substantive fee concessions and subsidized hostel and mess facilities
To make available quality education to the students of rural, tribal and other deprived sections of the population
The functioning of all the constituent units of Bharati Vidyapeeth is designed and geared up towards the fulfillment of these commitments.
Dr. Patangrao Kadam has visualized mobilization of resources through cooperation among people as yet another means of social transformation. Towards this aim, he has established various cooperative units as sister concerns of Bharati Vidyapeeth. Among them are a cooperative bank, a cooperative sugar factory, a cooperative poultry farm, cooperative consumer's stores etc. These sister concerns of Bharati Vidyapeeth are organically interlinked with Bharati Vidyapeeth. They contribute a part of their annual profit to Bharati Vidyapeeth for its academic activities.
History Maharashtra has a very long and strong tradition of private initiatives in higher education. There are several organizations established by social reformers, educationists and others devoted to the cause of education. Inspired by the work and teaching of some of them, particularly Karmaveer Bhaurao Patil, the Founder of Rayat Shikshan Sanstha, who did pioneering work in the field of education during the last century, Dr. Patangrao Kadam established Bharati Vidyapeeth in Pune in 1964.
The mission that Bharati Vidyapeeth has defined for itself, is to bring about intellectual awakening of people through the spread of education and to prepare human resources needed for all round development, particularly economic, of the country.
Bharati Vidyapeeth had a very humble beginning. It was around 1963, when he was still a part time school teacher that Dr. Patangrao Kadam was disturbed on seeing that not many Maharashtrian students could get admissions to national level institutions such as National Defence Academy or clear competitive examinations.
He noted that the root cause of this was a relatively weak foundation of these students in subjects such as English and Mathematics. With a view to promote interest and liking in the minds of the students for these two subjects, Bharati Vidyapeeth, since its inception, started conducting competitive examinations for school going children in the same. This subsequently became its major activity, which still continues.
Bharati Vidyapeeth had its inception in a small room in a remote corner of an old part of Pune City. The onlookers then could not digest the word "Vidyapeeth" (University) in the name "Bharati Vidyapeeth". A newspaper once sarcastically commented that this Vidyapeeth borne in a congested lane of Pune City, would meet its natural death there itself. But that was not to be so. Bharati Vidyapeeth flourished and flourished extensively. It achieved ever greater heights of success. It went in search of new horizons and expanded its sphere of activities at unbelievable speed. Thanks to the vision, commitment, and sincerity of purpose, hard work and confidence of its Founder, Dr. Patangrao Kadam.
