Vice-Chancellor of Sri Venkateswara University


Until his retirement from service in September 2011, Prof. V.V.N. Rajendra Prasad served Sri Krishnadevaraya University, Ananthapuramu, for more than thirty-four years and earned a good name as a teacher and researcher. Joining university service in 1977, Prof. Prasad succeeded in shaping his identity as a teacher and researcher pursuing two complementary directions: (1) study of and research in Indian English Literature, and (2) study of the English Language.

His PhD is on the Indian Novel in English. When the thesis was brought out in a book form, it was well received both in India and in other countries. Further, from the beginning of his university service till his retirement, Prof. Prasad taught the History of the English Language, Phonetics, and Modern English Grammar. His consistent pursuit of grammar teaching enabled me to bring out a textbook on English grammar, usage, and composition. He has also coedited two books: an anthology of prose and poetry and a collection of essays on English Language Teaching.

Prof. Prasad has been serving the cause of higher education in Andhra Pradesh. His sessions on English Phonetics at the “Train the Trainer” programme organized by Andhra Pradesh State Council of Higher Education made him popular among degree college teachers throughout Andhra Pradesh. He was also member of the External Faculty, School of Distance Education, CIEFL (Now, The EFL University), Hyderabad. He has given plenary talks as a resource person at national and international seminars and conferences. Prof. Prasad organized three national seminars on English Language Teaching and one UGC-Sponsored Refresher Course for degree college and university teachers. In addition, he was member of the Department of English and Comparative Literature, Sri Krishnadevaraya University, which organized 13 seminars/conferences/workshops.

While there has been greater accent in his pedagogical endeavours on English Language Teaching, he has also diversified his interests to include American and British fiction for MPhil and PhD level supervision. He has so far guided 21 PhDs and 30 MPhils.

Prof. Prasad was member of SK University Senate and SK University Academic Council. As member of many committees, he prepared reports of different types and contributed a great deal to the success of various academic and administrative programmes at Sri Krishnadevaraya University.

After retirement from Sri Krishnadevaraya University, Prof. Prasad joined Rayalaseema University in September 2012 as Professor on Contract. As member of the committee for the preparation of proposal for recognition of the University under 12B of the UGC Act, 1956, he played a significant role in Rayalaseema University becoming eligible to receive financial support from the University Grants Commission. He was also member of the committee for preparation of SSR submitted to NAAC.

After serving Rayalaseema University for six academic years, Prof. Rajendra Prasad joined the newly-established Central University of Andhra Pradesh as Visiting Professor of English. And on 3 February 2019, he was appointed Vice Chancellor of Sri Venkateswara University, Tirupati.
