The North Karnataka, especially its southern part was educationally and socio-economically acutely backward. Shri. Gudleppa Hallikeri, one of the great visionaries of our area, took the lead along with his followers to fulfill the aspirations of the people of this part of Karnataka. Thus came into existence, in the year 1963, our hallowed institution, Gudleppa Hallikeri College. His highness the Maharaja of Mysore, the then Governor of our state Shri J.C Wodeyar laid the foundation stone for the new building of the college in 1964. Thus, began the grand journey of dissemination of higher education to the deprived people of this region. We gratefully acknowledge the contribution of, Shri. M K Nelivigi a major donor.
