Mr. Sandeep Rajpure


I welcome you to our “RamRaje College, Dapoli”. On this occasion, I wish to draw your attention to the philosophy and pedagogic practices at our college.
Today’s youths, in spite of having education and academic degrees, find themselves in a quandary. They have all the required certificates on paper, but their inexperience and lack of exposure to today’s competitive world make them ill-prepared to face the world. Hence, we have given ourselves a different credo: we want to ensure that our students are both technically qualified and have real life experience of the workplace.
Graduates in many disciplines join the Indian workforce, but lack of opportunities enviably frustrate them. High cost of education in the disciplines like Hotel & Tourism Management, Media, I.T., Engineering, Nursing and Interior Decoration actively discourage the average students from pursuing career in these disciplines. We have, therefore, offered quality training in these promising career fields at affordable fees and Free Education for poor & backward class students. Our aim is to offer rural boys and girls optimum job oriented skills that will enable them to become self sufficient.

Nineteen years have passed since the establishment of Distinctive Education Society in Dapoli, Dist. Ratnagiri. During this period, many needy students of Konkan have taken advantage of the various courses offered by the Institute and have started moving towards a brighter future. Meanwhile, the College has developed significantly and is fulfilling the desire of many aspiring and needy young people not only from Dapoli and Konkan, but also from cities like Mumbai and Pune to get higher education. I am proud of the progress made by the College in the last eighteen years
It is seen that the Society's expectations from the Institution have increased. We will fulfil this trust of the society and take it to completion. Thank you very much for your support so far!
I request you all to show the same love and support in the future too!!

Shri Ramraje College has been functioning for the last nineteen years under the auspices of Distinctive Education Society, Dapoli. It opened the doors of higher education in many professional courses to the poor, promising students. Hundreds of needy students from Konkan are availing this opportunity. It is a matter of pride and joy for all education lovers. I consider it my fortune that I got the opportunity to contribute to the development of a college affiliated to the University of Mumbai. We strive to provide all the necessary facilities to the students to impart quality education. The work of the organization is getting good response from all the sections of the society. The progress made by the organization in the last nineeen years under the able leadership of Mr. Sandeep Rajpure, Secretary of the society is commendable.
I heartily congratulate the Society and all concerned and wish the Institute to grow in reputation in the field of education.
