Profile of Shivaji University

About Us
Shivaji University, established in 1962, is named after the Great Maratha Warrior and founder of the Maratha empire Chhatrapati Shivaji. It was inaugurated on 18th November, 1962 by Dr. Radhakrishnan, the then President of India. One of the major objectives behind foundation of this University was to cater to the regional needs of South Maharashtra. The jurisdiction of the University is spread over four districts viz. Kolhapur, Sangli, Satara and Solapur with strength of about 2,00,000 students studying in 275 affiliated colleges and recognised institutes. This region of Maharashtra boasts of rich and varied socio-cultural heritage. Under the innovative and socially reformist leadership of Chhatrapati Shahu Maharaj, the princely ruler of Kolhapur, the city had become at the beginning of this century, a focal point of educational opportunities for all classes and communities of South-Western Maharashtra, and northern parts of neighbouring Karnataka. This is also land of Karmaveer Bhaurao Patil, who struggled for taking education to the masses by his innovative 'Earn and Learn' scheme. When the University was founded by the Shivaji University Act of 1962, the objectives set before the University included making opportunities of higher education accessible to rural youth, conducting fundamental and applied research in the field of science and humanities to ensure regional growth and development.

In 1962 the University started functioning with 34 affiliated colleges and about 14000 students with 5 Post-graduate Departments on the campus.

During initial two decades the efforts were concentrated on expansion of higher education and foundation of new colleges in different parts in the four districts under its jurisdiction. The University consolidated its base in this phase by 'taking education to the people'. The decade of 1980s saw a major expansion, especially the growth of professional faculties like Engineering, Education, Management and Medicine. The recent phase of the University can be termed as "a pursuit of academic excellence". Since last 4-5 years, several attempts are being made to overcome the image of University as a regional University. Several steps have been taken to raise the standards of teaching and research so as to measure upto global standards. This is being achieved by exploring new areas of higher learning and research in rapidly emerging fields like Industrial Chemistry, Space Science, Environmental Science, Bio-Chemistry, Sericulture, Polymer Chemistry and Computer Science, in addition to basic science disciplines. The University Department of Physics has been recently identified by UGC for its Special Assistance Programme and recognised as Department of Research Support.

Departments of Sociology, Education, Geography, Physics and Economics are offering special courses in emerging areas like Environmental Science is also functioning actively.

The University is encouraging merit by introducing an unique scheme called 'Shivaji University Merit Scholarship' offering 500 scholarships to meritorious students in affiliated colleges. It has also instituted research fellowships for Ph. D. students in the Post-Graduate Departments of the University. The University has made a budget provision of about Rs. 45 Lakhs for these scholarships out of its own funds. This University can proudly claim to be the first University in India to initiate such a scheme.

The University's efforts towards excellence are being recognised by the substantial grants received from funding agencies like UGC, DST, DBT etc. The another indicator of recognition of University is collaborations with premier institutes in the country.

It has also joined hands with Indian Institute of Geo-Magnetism, Mumbai and industries like Phyto-Pharma. Prestigious institutes like Maharashtra Police Academy, Nashik and Centre for Social Studies, Surat have sought affiliation with the Shivaji University. Shivaji University has been accredited by National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) Bangalore, with B+ ( * * * * * as per earlier grading system).

Quest of academic enrichment and pursuit of excellence of the University are facilitated by efficient administration. The smooth conduct of about 200 examinations per year of about 2,00,000 students, has been time and again appreciated by the Hon. Chancellor also. The University has maintained the high standards of general administration, prudent financial management and a cordial rapport with funding agencies.

Under the plan, 11 scientists, including six from the Australian National University, two from the University of Hyderabad and one each from Raman Research Institute, IIT Madras and SU, are developing a high-energy hybrid material for use in information technology (IT).From SU, the associate professor of chemistry department, Sanjay Chavan is participating in the project, named hybrid organometallics coordination complex material for non-linear optics.Speaking, Chavan said the project is part of the Indo-Australian strategic research programme and the scientists will work from their respective centres and also make exchange visits.

It was in March that Chavan had won the Australian Governments Ministry of Tertiary Education Skills Jobs and Workplace Relations Endeavour Research Fellowship.The Indian government has sanctioned Rs 58 lakh for Indian researchers, while the Australian government has sanctioned $ 2.99 lakh for Australian researchers.The funds have to be utilised for purchasing equipment and chemicals.The SU is delighted with the project as it will get an opportunity to work with the Australian National University whose faculty includes Nobel Prize winning professors.

Kolhapur scientist finds key to disposal of chicken feathers

Kolhapur: The disposal of chicken feathers, that are generated in huge quantities at poultry farms and at meat shops, will now be an easy task with the biotechnology department of Kolhapurs Shivaji University identifying a new microorganism that disintegrates feathers within 30 hours.The departments head, Jyoti Jadhav and her research student, Ranjit Gurav were working on this project for three-and-a-half years.Keratin in feathers makes their degeneration difficult, lasting for five to seven years. The feathers cannot be incinerated also as a large quantity of sulphur is released.We were collecting the microorganisms from the soil and found six microorganisms capable of degenerating the feathers in various time frames, Jadhav said. Of the six, one was found to be potent and was deposited with the International Database Bank in USA.

This microorganism turned out to be a new species and was named as Chryseobacterium species Research Bio Technology. According to the researchers, it disintegrates chicken feathers within 30 hours.

The feathers have to be placed in a liquid medium mixed with the microorganism. This mixture needs aeration. This is a simple method and the technology can be easily transferred to laymen, Gurav said.

The microorganism secretes the enzyme keratinise, which breaks keratin into peptides and then into amino acids. The liquid generated after the degradation of the feathers is a good quality bio-fertilser.

The liquid residue after the degradation of the feathers contains natural amino acids, which are much better bio-fertilisers than chemically made amino acids. The trials of this liquid remains on plants has shown good results, Jadhav said.

The microorganism can also be used instead of chemicals in tanneries for removing hair from hide.
Incidentally, Jadhav was recently honoured with the young woman scientist award of the Biotech Research Society India. A fellow of the Maharashtra Academy of Sciences, she has authored more than 50 research articles.

She is well-known for her work on Bioremediation of textile dyes and affluent and their toxicity analysis. She has been conducting research on medicines used in Parkinsons disease and melanin.

Jadhav expressed his gratitude to the SU vice chancellor NJ Pawar, biochemistry department head SP Govindvar and emeritus professor VA Bapat for assisting her in the project.
