KLE Group of Institutions

Karnataka Lingayat Education (KLE) Society emphasizes on the sound mind and healthy body for spiritual enlightenment and social transformation.
The “Saptarshis” (Seven Saints) – namely M. R. Sakhare, S. S. Basavanal, B. S. Hanchinal, H. F. Kattimani, B. B. Mamadapur, P. R. Chikodi and V. V. Patil – determined to serve and sacrifice their lives for the upliftment of the community through education which is one of the essential constituent of life. Thus sown the seed on 13 November, 1916 in the form of anglo vernacular school. The society is growing unstoppably thereafter from strength to strength. At present 243 educational institutions, in the diverse faculties like Arts, Science, Commerce, Medicine, Engineering, Dental, Pharmacy, Architecture, Law, Nursing, Ayurved, Management, Information Technology & Computer Science are catering the services from K.G. to P.G. including research. All institutions spread from unknown rural area to well known cities are par excellence in infrastructure with high quality education which are accepted with wide acclaim by the members of society and approved by NAAC /Universities / NBA etc.
The KLE society’s KLE University established on 13 April, 2006 with well known Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College and Institute of Dental Science, Belgaum as constituent colleges is another feather in the cap. A pride of the society’s Dr. Prabhakar Kore Hospital and Medical Research Centre, Belgaum with 2420 beds catering the services to the poor, needy and down trodden has been identified as one of the best hospitals in South India. A vibrant 98 years old KLE Society has been led by charismatic Chairman Dr. Prabhakar Kore who is strongly supported by members of board of management. Over 1,00,000 students guided, supported and attended by over 10500 employees – are members of KLE Parivar- conjoined through 243 institutions. Due to his outstanding contribution, over three decades in the field of education, Dr. Prabhakar Kore – M. P. and Chairman of the society, has been conferred with doctorate degree by the Karnatak University, Dharward and Rani Channamma University, Belgaum. The Government of Karnatak, has honored him with “Karnatak Rajyotsav Prashasti” as well. The KLE Society is never complacent with its present achievements.

Chairman Message

The quest for knowledge, insight and wisdom is part and parcel of life. The more we learn, the more we realize that we do not know. A revelation of how much we don’t know will continue to motivate us towards learning.
In praise of constant learning, Henry Ford, quoted – “ Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at 20 or 80. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.”
Great learning must be accompanied by willingness to listen to others. This is important and should not be glossed over. Times are changing. People are beginning to realize the importance of ideas and the power of thinking and learning. We need inspiration, not just information. We need passion, not pettiness. We need courage, not cowardice. We reach our destination with discipline and deep thinking, not with dalliance and diversion.
The discipline of action, although it may give rise to mistakes sometimes, is far preferable to safe and stationary living. Discipline, KLE has discovered, has an intrinsic ability to be self-perpetuating. This discipline is the secret of holistic approach of KLE. Be a proud partner of KLE family. Lastly with quotes of William A Ward, I advise young and beautiful minds:
“PLAN PURPOSEFULLY, PREPARE PRAYERFULLY, PROCEED POSITIVELY, PURSUE PERSISTENTLY”

Governing Body Chairman Message

The success of an organization is deeply rooted in its ability to keep pace with the rapidly evolving demands of time. The KLE Society which was established as an Anglo Vernacular School in 1916 has traversed a long distance over time and space. Our ability to accommodate change, adapt and evolve arises in the nobility of the philosophy of the founding fathers, “The Saptarishis” and their benevolent patrons who devoted their lives to the betterment of society at large.

I am fortunate to have the guiding light of great stalwarts led by our dynamic chairman Dr.Prabhakar Kore who has led 100 year old KLE Society from the front and they all inspire me to take our institution forward to reach greater heights in the field of education and learning.

KLE students have always been enjoying the tradition helping them explore their discipline, knowledge and their complete potential. Our dedicated and capable faculties not only teach but respect, celebrate and nurture their individual differences, cultivate them and thus achieve the progress of each student and eventually the institution.  Here at KLE we have always supported the self confidence of each student and practiced it to perfection. KLE society reaches out to all those who have devoted their lives to the cause of enriched education, research and health care. It is my firm belief that our dear students with young fresh minds and new innovative ideas that will help to make our institution more advanced. It has indeed been a pride for the organization to have surpassed the physical, technological and methodical barriers and outshined as an organization of global repute.

We make sure that our students are not only technology savvy but also socially and environmentally conscious. We are always focused on nurturing our students who are eager and enthusiastic about making our world a better place, whether it means helping to uplift certain sections of society or cleaning up our planet. A new beginning dawns upon us now, a beginning that is illumined by the brilliance of the past and pursuits towards the fragrance of the future.

Our vision is also to make every student of KLE employable, self reliant and industry ready which is achieved by supplementing our courses with skill enhancement programs. The cultural, co-curricular and extracurricular activities are also cultivated as they lead to overall development of students.
