India Initiatives Group

The India Initiative Group is a steering committee for UNT's engagements with India.

The group recommends strategies to academic affairs and the university at-large that aid in setting, refining, and achieving UNT’s goals in India and that contribute to UNT retaining Tier One status. The group's philosophy is to enhance UNT’s successful engagements and visibility in India beyond individual UNT faculty/staff relationships.
