Founder members of Navnirman Shikshan Sanstha had a great awareness for education which led them to establish College of Arts, Commerce and Science (Computer), later renamed as Laxmibai Sitaram Halbe College of Arts, Commerce and Science, at Dodamarg on 6th August 2001.
Dodamarg was separated from Sawantwadi tehsil in June 1999 and became the youngest tehsil of Sindhudurg district. Having 56 small villages in its jurisdiction, it locates in the lap of the Sahyadri Mountain range and comes exactly on the borders of Maharashtra, Goa and Karnataka states. Since the establishment, the college has been continuously providing higher education to the youth of Dodamarg tehsil as well as nearby villages of Goa State. Formerly, students had to travel more than 50 kms to reach Sawantwadi and Banda for degree education but this institution has lessened their sufferings and brought higher education at their doorstep.
The college is relentlessly striving in pursuance of academic excellence and encouraging learners to participate spontaneously in various co-curricular and extracurricular activities. It has well qualified and research oriented teaching staff as well as supportive and efficient non-teaching staff which constantly endeavor for the betterment of the students and ultimately of the institution. Besides academic education, the college finds its responsibility towards community, women’s empowerment, socio-economically backward class, environment consciousness, national harmony etc. and constantly addresses them through several co-curricular and extracurricular activities. We are persistently trying to kindle young minds with sublime ideas, accountability, virtuousness, curiosity, and social as well as ethical values.
