Former election commissioner N Gopalaswami who heads the Empowered Expert Committee (EEC) has recommended the prestigious 'Andhra University's' name for the 'Institution of Eminence' tag under the University Grants Commission.
The Andhra University will now be one among the 12 public and 12 private institutions that are named by the committee. The IoE tag adds a feather in the university's cap.
This would enable the university to have a greater autonomy and a grant of 1,000 crores for the next five years by the central government.
The announcement of the recommendation came while the university was preparing for a grand alumni meet today, to honor the founder of the University C.R. Reddy.
Professor C.R. Reddy was a Vice-Chancellor when he founded the university in 1926, it is a 92 years old university.
Prof. Reddy was later succeeded by Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan in 1931. The University is accreditated by NAAC ( National Assessment and Accreditation Council) with an A grade.
The IoE tag gives the University the authority to recruit and admit foreign faculty. The University offers 313 different courses currently.
The other public and private institutes which already received the IoE tag were IIT-Bombay. IIT-Delhi. Manipal University, Jio University etc.
