Reception launches India Initiative

On October 11, the Division of International Studies in collaboration with the Center for South Asia, the Wisconsin Alumni Association and the UW Foundation launched the India Initiative with an evening reception at the Pyle Center.

Faculty, alumni, and friends came to celebrate this unique project aimed to support, enhance, and increase awareness about India’s arts, cultures, economy, history, religions and society.

Through collaboration with diverse departments and programs, and with support from alumni and friends, the India Initiative highlights scholarship and outreach efforts and facilitates new programs to help us better understand and engage with India’s rising global prominence in such diverse fields as medicine, journalism, economy and industry, engineering, biotechnology and law.

Recognizing the importance of India to the economic and political future of Wisconsin and the United States, this enhanced collaboration with and dissemination about India will benefit Wisconsin’s businesses and citizens as a whole.
