Sri Venkateswara College was the visionary realization of the spirited vision and dream of three stalwarts in the public domain Smt. Durga Bai Deshmukh, Dr. K.L. Rao and Dr. C. Anna Rao. Fired with the zeal of promoting the cause of education, the college was set up at New Delhi under the benign auspices of Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (T.T.D.) in 1961.
The foundation stone for the construction of a full fledged college building in the spacious site of nearly 15 acres provided at Dhaula Kuan, New Delhi, was laid on 20th August'1961 appropriately and auspiciously by Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, India's outstanding teacher, scholar and statesman.
Sri Venkateswara College couples sound academic achievement with an extensive, vibrant co-curricular programme that includes the fine arts, sports, and leadership training programmes. We try to inculcate the love of knowledge in our students and help them develop the skills and demeanour of lifelong 'learning', essential for making responsible global citizens, capable of facing the future with resilience and optimism. We offer a wide range of university and add-on courses that prepares the students for employment and higher education. We try to instil the values of respect and trust in relationships that are the foundation of real success.
We believe that 'education' is a wholesome, holistic exercise. We care for the mind, we care for the person—the accent is on the all round development of personality. Above all, we care for the nurture of good human beings, well-equipped to meet the challenges of the world.
