Arjuni/Morgaon is a taluka place. It was part of the Bhandara District. The district of Bhandara was divided in 1999 on 1st of May and the district of Gondia was Created. Thus the said taluka because part of Gondia. It was a rural populace. The tribal people reside here at large scale. It is under naxalites influences. Although a place of taluka there was no higher education institution until 1990. The poverty stricken parents could not afford higher education to their wards. Mainly, girls were drastically wanting of higher education opportunities. Shri Shivprasad Sadanand Jaiswal dreamt of availing higher education to the deprived of the taluka. After his demise in an accident, the college was established in his name in Arjuni.
Shivprasad Sadanand Jaiswal Arts and Commerce college was started in the session 1990-91. There were seven teachers and two non-teaching members with 135 students at its maiden year. Our college has today completed its full-fledged 21 Years and in witnessing its 22nd glorious year.
By completing the last decade of the twentieth century as well as the first decade of the twenty fist century, we have slipped in the second decade of the twenty first century. During those two decades the college has built up its unique identity. I am witness to all event and I am really proud of it.
Since its opening in 1990 -91, the college had two programmes i.e. Arts and Commerce. The college initiated the departments of Geography and Home-Economics in the years 1995 and 1997 respectively. The college received permanent affiliation from the Rastrasant Tukadoji Maharaj Nagpur University , Nagpur in the Year 200-01. It came under 2(f) and 12(b) of the university grant commission New Delhi in 2001. The college received different kinds of financial aid and grants under the X th plan (2002-2007). The NAAC Bangalore assessed the college in 2003-04 and was accredited with ‘B’ there was no science programme till available there for students
The institution initiated the move towards this direction. Thus college started government recognized science programme from the year 2008-09. Besides it, post Graduate programme in English, Marathi and Commerce were introduced in the college from the Year 2009-10. Until now, own college has received gold medal is Marathi and Computer Application and bronze medal in Home Economics.

The college has received grants from the UGC under the 11th Plan (2007-12). The college utilized there grants so as to facilitate to the augmenting needs of the students. We really feel better to make our students knowledgeable instead of simple examinees. For it, availability and flexibility of courses subject related activities, teaching -learning are taken care of.
