Karnataka Lingayat Education (KLE) Society situated in Belagavi, Karnataka, India, is the parent society of KLE Academy of Higher Education and Research (KAHER), 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 Academy of Higher Education and Research (KAHER) 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 Academy of Higher Education and Research (KAHER) 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 Academy of Higher Education and Research (KAHER) 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.
