DRC - Profile

District Resource Center, NTR KRISHNA

Coordinator (NTR KRISHNA District)

In Andhra Pradesh majority of the Government Degree Colleges are located in rural and semi-urban areas, and they primarily serve students from low-income and underprivileged backgrounds. Students attending universities in rural locations confront challenges such as a lack of infrastructure and teachers, a lack of exposure to a modern educational environment, and inadequate background support. To address these issues Government Degree Colleges in the district were networked with a designated Government Degree College in the district, known as the District Resource Centre (DRC), to help primarily rural students. The SRR & CVR Government Degree College (A) in Vijayawada has been selected as a prospective centre in the NTR KRISHNA District. Since its inauguration in 2008, the District Resource Centre has been operational and effective.
