      Auburn University China - India Interest Group was started as a voluteer group in the Spring of 2009 with the goals described below. Anyone may join the group by sending an e-mail to the facilitators and by attending monthly meetings (3rd Friday at 11 a.m, venue TBA) during the Fall and the Spring semesters.

Goals

  • To increase the number and quality of graduate students at AU from the two countries with the world’s biggest populations and the most students studying abroad.
  • To increase the number of visiting scholars from universities in these countries to AU and vice-versa so as to increase teaching and research opportunities for AU faculty.
  • To advance and promote the name of AU in the academic and non-academic communities in these increasingly important countries.
  • To bring a more accurate appreciation throughout AU for the academic programs in these countries and the extent to which they are becoming more competitive in academic circles.
  • To increase the amount of collaborative and sponsored research between the AU faculty and the faculties in these countries, where academic research support is continually increasing.
  • To increase the number of available graduate fellowships at AU for promising graduate students from these countries.
  • To bring graduate students funded by their own countries. Such students seek better known researchers, scholars, and universities.
