International Academic Partnership Program

India

In summer 2011, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, was selected by the Institute of International Education as one of 11 U.S. colleges and universities to participate in the 2012 India initiative of the International Academic Partnership Program (IAPP). The IAPP is funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education. The program is designed to support universities in deepening and broadening their relationships with universities in a single country.

Over the next year, 2011-2012, Rutgers faculty and staff will engage in a series of strategic discussions on how to establish and sustain long-term partnerships with institutions in India. Given India’s significance in global society and the fact that New Jersey is the home of almost 300,000 Asian Indians, Rutgers intends to expand its range of collaborations with Indian universities.

Faculty and staff at Rutgers are currently active in many partnership programs in India, including: a collaboration between the Rutgers Office of Technology Commercialization, the U.S. Commercial Service, technical colleges in India, and a partnership with the Tata Institute of Social Sciences. Rutgers faculty connections with Indian colleagues include collaborations in sociology, engineering, languages and literatures, history, geography, social work, business, and animal science, as well as agriculture and food.

The South Asian Studies Program at Rutgers offers more than 80 courses and brings together more than 30 faculty members with expertise and interest in India. Numerous student organizations (27) engage students in wide-ranging co-curricular activities across Rutgers' three campuses.
