While recognizing the growing needs of higher education in the Bardoli region which is inhabited mostly by the enlightened Patels, whose mettle was truly tested on the anvil of Freedom-movement and ‘Satyagrah’ by Sardar Patel, and the dwelling den of the tribals sprawling over the neighboring talukas who were to open their eyes to socio-economic equality through education awakened by Gandhian ways of social upliftment—the Bardoli Pradesh Kelavni Mandal the Public Trust emerged as an umbrella organization in 1960.
Patel Raman Brothers Arts & Science College (1963) was its debut venture. As its seeds were well sown, it sprouted healthily and prospered progressively. This could be possible, precisely because it is the very land where Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of the Nation and Sardar Patel, the Iron Man of India, had had their foot prints during the crucial phase of our freedom movement.
It was the spririt of such great souls that percolated in the germination and growth of social, educational, co-operative and industrial institutions in this blessed area.
In 1971, the college was rechristened with the addition of Commerce faculty as Patel Raman Bros. Arts & Patel Gopalbhai Ranchhodji Commerce College, Bardoli.
The college in near future in 2013 is going to celebrate the golden jubilee of its academic existence and fruitful presence in this region. Ours is a Grant-in-aid college affiliated to Veer Narmad South Gujarat University, Surat and recognized by the UGC under 2 (f) & 12 (B) schemes.
The college located opposite to historical Swaraj Ashram of Bardoli has a sprawling campus of 4.5 acres in the semi-urban town.
