History of Department Mathematics is being taught in Willingdon College since its inception that is 1919. However, records indicate that Mathematics department got permanent affiliation under University of Bombay in 1924 under arts faculty. Even up to late seventies subject Mathematics was offered in combination with Sanskrit. Later in 1932, science faculty was started and Mathematics was being taught under both faculties. Distinguished personalities such as Wrangler Prin. G.L.Chandratreya was a faculty of Mathematics department and he also started M.Sc. Mathematics during his tenure. Prof. S.J.Oak, was a popular teacher of our department during his tenure. Further, in 1979, Prin. K.M.Agashe, used his good offices as well-known mathematics teacher and started M.Sc. Mathematics as a grantable subject and our college is the only college under Shivaji University, Kolhapur and is being run till to date. In the initial years Prof.E.V.Gore, Prof. R.V.Gogate, Prof. S.S.Kittad, Prof. H.V.Arey, Dr. S.R.Kulkarni of our department and Prof. S.S.Bodas, Prof. S.P.Pandit of Physics department and Prof. M.S.Sajjan of statistics department shouldered the responsibility of running the P.G. course smoothly. Dr.S.R.Kulkarni was the first recognized research guide of our department and he took many initiatives to develop our department . Later Dr. Uday H Naik, Dr.M.S.Bapat and recently Dr. Girish Shelake are research guides. In 2022, Dr. M. S. Bapat joined DBJ College, Chiplun as a Principal. Right now, Geometric Function Theory is an active research field of our department. We are planning to extend our research field to Fuzzy mathematics also. Since 2016 we have Shivaji University, distance education center for M.Sc. Mathematics. In the year 2017, department is being accommodated in separate specious building and new events like State level Ramanujan Quiz, Poster and Model competition and Mathmania are in place to encourage the students for their overall development. Our future plans include developing our department as a lead department under Shivaji university. We are planning to start new certificate courses such as Latex, Vedic Mathematics, Geogebra, Mathematics for Insurance and Finance. Further, we would like to develop a Mathematics laboratory and Mathematics prototype model center.
