UNT established the India Initiative Group (IIG) in 2015 as a steering committee for the University’s engagements with India.
The IIG 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 attaining Tier One status. The philosophy of the IIG is to enhance UNT’s successful engagements and visibility and India beyond individual UNT faculty/staff relationships.
The IIG identified four thrust areas for furthering UNT’s engagements in India, including:
- Student Engagement (Ila Manuj)
- Research Engagement (STEM – Raj Banerjee, Humanities/Social Sciences – Pankaj Jain)
- Local Community Engagement – (Niranjan Tripathy)
- Marketing (Pankaj Jain)
