Faculty survey on Emory's engagement with India closes June 5

Emory Report | June 1, 2015

The Office of Global Strategy and Initiatives is seeking input on ways to strengthen the university’s engagement with India. Faculty with India-related interests or expertise are invited to complete a brief online survey by Friday, June 5.

India is one of five countries identified as geographic priorities in Emory’s recently announced global strategy. The others are Brazil, China, Ethiopia and South Korea.

“An India initiative will create clearer focus around a range of activities, from developing in-country student opportunities, to establishing collaborative institutional partnerships, to providing administrative support for faculty working in India,” Philip Wainwright, vice provost for global strategy and initiatives, wrote in an email to faculty. “These activities will help make India a signature strength at Emory.”

Wainwright says the survey is a first step toward the development of an India initiative at Emory. Faculty who are interested in discussing the initiative with GSI staff in person should email Kevin Kelly, assistant director of GSI.
