"Success is a Journey rather than Destination"


Every great event, it has been well said, brings one absolute new thing into world. Such an event was, starting of the K. L. E. Society in 1916 by seven dedicated teachers and three generous patrons. Their mission was to provide education basically, to children of farming community who constitute a significant majority in Karnataka. Though modest and unadvertised was their act, yet it created a sensation in the educational history of this region.

The environment today is totally different from the one in 1916, yet the mission of founders of K.L.E Society is pursued with the same zeal even after 98 years in fulfillment of the vision of providing education to the needy in all spheres of human knowledge.


With a strong network of over 240 educational institutions spread in Karnataka, part of Maharashtra and even in Delhi, the K.L.E. Society enjoys an unrivalled status in India, especially in South. To advance the cause of education, the Society has employed over 10,500 men and women committed to academic excellence, and have over 87,310 students on its roll. Obviously, the K.L.E. Society today stands second to none. The rush for admissions for all classes and courses right from K. G. to P. G. in professional as well as traditional streams of learning speaks of high standard that the K.L.E. has sent over years.


In functioning of the K.L.E. Society the true spirit of democracy runs. The management of the society is effective and ably carried out by the Chairman of Board of Management consisting of 15 members duly elected as per the constitutional provisions of the society. The president and Vice-President guide the Chairman while the Life Members frame academic guidelines. The financial transparency is maintained through regular audit system.


While internationally renowned J. N. Medical College brings the name and fame of the Society back in limelight by the quality track record that it has set overseas, infrastructural far-superior, ultra-modern, multi-specialty 2400 beds Hospital and M. R. C. Belgaum adds to it. With right approach and a long perspective, Chairman Shri. Prabhakar Kore and his team have set a new tradition that 'nothing beats quality'.


For empowering students and the faculty with the global ambience in academics and their overall growth, the sponsoring KLE Society thought of achieving University status. The effort started a decade ago and as another feather, The KLE Academy of Higher Education and Research has been accorded University status by the Department of Secondary & Higher Education, Ministry of Human Resource Development, New Delhi.
