The Rutgers India Initiative

In 2013, the Rutgers Global launched an ambitious new effort to increase the profile of India at Rutgers through the University-wide India Initiative. Hosted by SASP, the India Initiative organizes colloquia on India and the Indian diaspora; forges institutional ties between Rutgers faculty and research and educational institutions in India; pursues collaborations with business, community and non-profit organizations in the US; and enhances outreach to the Indian-American community. The India Initiative has also established a joint seminar series between SASP and the South Asia Total Health Initiative (SATHI) in the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School titled “Global Cross Roads: Seminars in South Asian Culture, Ecology and Health.”
