Andhra University is not just one of the oldest educational institutions in the country, but is also the first to be conceived as a residential and teaching-cum-affiliating University, mainly devoted to post-graduate teaching and research.
The people of the State have an emotional attachment to the institution, since it came into being after a prolonged and collective struggle of the Telugu elite for a University in the educationally backward northern Circars and Ceded districts of the erstwhile Madras Presidency.
Andhra University was constituted in the year 1926 by the Madras Act of 1926. The 97 years old institution is fortunate to have Sir C.R. Reddy as its founder Vice-Chancellor, as the steps taken by this visionary proved to be fruitful in the long run.Know More

The Vice Chancellor office works collaboratively across the University Constituent and affiliated Colleges to ensure that every student has the best possible education and experience. In the journey, there will be tough times and there will be easier ones, but we shall work hard with no regrets, and be victorious. The University faculty are here to be the mentors and facilitators to help the students in all round progress. The parents are here to understand the strength and weaknesses of their wards and encourage them, in choosing a study of their passion. The students are here to understand that the rules and regulations in the university are put in a place to help them in achieving dreams.
There must be an aspiration to excel and serve the society, and hence there must be measuring standards. We the faculty and students as a University must excel and set standards to impact society and future generations.
Let’s move ahead with a clear line of action to excel in academics, fortify our research initiatives through quality publications, strengthened industry – institute interactions, product development, Start-Up ventures and honestly contributing for the upliftment and growth of people and humanity at large.
Our challenge is to help to generate ideas that will benefit society, and to educate and train people to work in fields where they will be valued both for their knowledge, and for their ability to research, communicate and solve problems. I offer my best wishes to all students, faculty and staff to grow and excel in this challenging and competitive era and the pinnacle of success.
