This GSG College was started 30 years ago by local farm community as they saw the need for a college in this underdeveloped area. In the beginning when this college was started, they did not have facility of their own so they were conducting morning classes in a local high school.
Dr. Atmaram Gawande, who is born in this area and had gone to high school in Umarkhed saw the opportunity to help the community in their educational endeavor. In the year 1985, Dr. Sushila and Dr. Atmaram Gawande provided the seed money to build the college. To honor Dr. Gawande's mother, this college is now named Gopikabai Sitaram Gawande. The Government of Maharashtra gave the land to build the college, the local community and farmers collected the funds and a small college building is now built over several years.
