Sri Venkateswara University, Tirupati , is established in 1954 in the world famous holy temple town of Tirupati on the sprawling campus of 1000 acres with a panoramic and pleasant hill view. The University stands as a testimony to the wisdom and foresight of great visionaries Late Sri Tanguturi Prakasam Pantulu, the then Chief Minister of Andhra and Late Sri Neelam Sanjiva Reddy, to cater the educational needs and aspirations of the people of Rayalaseema area. With a great wisdom, the founder of this University have rightly coined the motto Wisdom lies in proper perspective for it.
Today, no institution can afford to function in isolation of the competitive and competing forces unleashed by the forces of liberalization, privatization and globalization. The Universities are no exception to this newly emerging phenomenon. Our young students today are attracted towards foreign Universities opening their off-campus centers in India , specially designing academic courses to suit Indian market requirements. Universities within India have reached saturation with many traditional courses becoming dormant and least preferred. It is high time for the Universities to have a sound vision to prevent this trend and offer courses in the emerging areas to suit the present day market demands. To catch up with this new scenario, the University administration under the inspiring leadership of the present Vice-Chancellor is very keen to have a vision to transform the University into a role model for excellence.
The "Mission" is to develop qualified and competent citizens through teaching and training, expand the horizons of knowledge through research, to lend knowledge and support to various organizations for their effective functioning, to contribute to the creation of a happy and healthy society through fruitful interaction with it, and to participate in the development of the society.
