About the Association
Karnataka Lingayat Education (KLE) Society situated in Belagavi, Karnataka, India, is the parent society of KLE University, and serving as a Global leader in Education, Research and Health care for nearly 10 decades. With 250 institutions spread across Karnataka, Maharashtra, Goa and New Delhi in India and also in Dubai, each narrating their own amazing stories of enriching people’s lives, a harmony exists that is very palpable. Our alumni, settled in different parts of the world are a testimony to our achievements and endeavours and are ambassadors promoting the ‘Brand KLE’ throughout the world. The collaborations with universities in the US, UK and Malaysia have added a whole new dimension to the KLE Society making it on par with reputed educational institutions worldwide. Under the unparalleled leadership of Dr. Prabhakar Kore, the KLE Institution has reached enviable heights. His spectacular chairmanship beyond 30 years, with the active support of his team of elected members, embodies the collective efforts of everyone in KLE, including 13,000 members of the trust, 1,10,262 students, and 16,000 strong faculty, in making KLE an international Education-destination. It was founded in 1916 by “Seven Dedicated Teachers or Saptharishis” by starting an Anglo Vernacular school in Belagavi.
The KLE University was established in 2006 on the recommendations of the UGC. The University is accredited ‘A’ Grade by NAAC and is placed in Category ‘A’ by the MHRD (Government of India) on the basis of the academic and research achievements. KLE University today has under its ambit, 8 Health Science institutions of KLE offering courses in Medicine, Pharmacy, Nursing, Physiotherapy and Ayurveda at Belagavi, Hubbali and Bengaluru. The KLE University in synergy with the KLES Dr. Prabhakar Kore Hospital & Medical Research Centre and other healthcare institutions of KLE at Belagavi has brought about a qualitative change by facilitating relevant research and providing easily accessible, modern and affordable healthcare to millions of people in the region and beyond.
The extreme shortage of medical facilities in the region, prompted the KLE Society to establish the Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College (JNMC) at Belagavi in 1963. The JNMC today stands testimony to the high professional standards of the KLE Society. Under the able guidance and mature insight of the Founder Dean, Late Dr. B.S. Jirge, the foundation of the erstwhile academic excellence was laid.
2016, centenary year of KLE Society and also it is the 46th Year of lively and active existence of J.N.M.C. Scientific Society. The scientific society conducts fortnightly clinical meetings, where interesting cases of different specialities are discussed resulting in widening the perspective of the clinicians and breaking the barriers between the specialities for the benefit of the learners and the patients. An annual CME is a regular activity of the society for the last 30 years to update mainly the practicing family physicians. A scientific quarterly journal (Three issues per year) “Journal of the Scientific Society” is being published for the last 42 years; it is a peer reviewed journal and is attracting papers from all over India and abroad.
