ABOUT US :
Siddhartha College‚ later renamed as‚ Parvathaneni Brahmayya Siddhartha College of Arts & Science‚ is the first institution to have been started by the Academy in 1975‚ with 200 students and 15 faculty members. The UGC and Acharya Nagarjuna University‚ the Parent University in the jurisdiction of which the college operates granted ‘autonomy’ to undergraduate courses in the year 1988. From the modest beginning‚ the college has emerged as one of the premier institutions of higher learning in the State‚ with a present strength of 2148 students and 114 faculty members. The College was accredited at the ‘A’ level by the NAAC. The UGC has granted the institution the status “College with Potential for Excellence” in 2010. University Grants Commission has conferred the prestigious “College with Potential for Excellence” on our college‚ under the XI Plan. UGC has recognized a few colleges with potential abilities to attain high standards in teaching‚ research and extension activities leading to excellence. This facilitates the college to design‚ develop and deliver the chosen academic programmes. Students trained in this college will be outstanding in their abilities – curricular‚ extracurricular activities and ethical values. The holistic education imparted in this institution enhances the academic abilities along with character, making every student perfect. In its long journey of forty years, a number of restructured, vocational and post-graduate courses were started and thousands of students graduated in Arts, science, commerce and management. It is always believed-knowing oneself is the greatest skill in the path of perfection. Excellence does not mean perfection. It is only a cause in the perfection.
Following this tenet‚ it is thought that introspection is a necessity and hence the college went for the re-accreditation by the NAAC, since the journey for perfection should go on farther and forever.
Ours is the first college in the jurisdiction of Acharya Nagarjuna University to get accreditation at ‘A’ level by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council, Bangalore. The college has been shifted to The Jurisdiction of Krishna University, Machilipatnam in the academic year 2009–10.
