Parbhani, a District of Marathwada region, is predominantly backward in all spheres of life. Hence, in 1916, the freedom fighters decided to establish a society to cater to the educational needs of the poor and the studious students of the District. In this way, Nutan Vidya Mandir Education Society was established in 1916. In 2016, the Nutan Vidya Mandir Education Society has completed its centenary year. Further, under the chairmanship of the Late Hon. Raosahebji Jamkar (Ex-MLA and Ex-State Minister for Agriculture, AHD, Fisheries), the society established the Late Sow. Kamlatai Jamkar Mahila Mahavidyalaya in 1983.
The College was established with an aim to educate the girl students in the vicinity for their social, economic and cultural upliftments. Initially, the College started courses in Arts and Commerce. Later on, the college introduced UG programmes in BCA, BBA and PG programmes in M. A. (Music), M. Sc. (CM) and M. Sc. (CS) on non-grant basis. Recently, the College introduced a new degree programme i.e. B. Voc. (Fashion Technology) and B. Voc. (Information Technology). It is the first and only one Women College re-accredited with “A” Grade under the Parent University. The objective of the College is very specific in expanding the mission of education up to grass root level.
