Dravidian University, Kuppam, Andhra Pradesh, India

The Dravidian University, Kuppam, Chittoor district, Andhra Pradesh, India. The Dravidian University was founded on October 20, 1997 by the Government of Andhra Pradesh, with the initial support extended by the governments of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Kerala for an integrated development of Dravidian languages. which is only 4 kms away from Karnataka, 8 kms from Tamil Nadu and of course very close to Kerala border, which is less than 4.5 hrs drive.  The principle objective of the establishment of the Dravidian University is to promote integrated studies on the common heritage of the Dravidian speakers facilitating a strong perception of oneness among them.

The University which had functioned with only 5 Departments, 3 P.G and 5 U.G. courses upto 2004 has in 2006 obtained U.G.C. 12B recognition for grants with the successful starting of five more Departments in addition to 6 courses under self financing scheme. The budget too looked up from 2.8 crores to 6 crores. The 21st Century Gurukulam was another feather in the cap. An extra 3 crores were spent on new buildings. Separate hostels for men and women students too came up. Now we have 17 Departments and 6 Centres. The Courses are enhanced to 24. U.G.C generously granted 1.38 crores at the near closing of its 10th Plan.
