Yale’s Engagement in South Asia
As the pace of globalization and innovation has accelerated, the need for more robust global engagement, new partnerships, and leadership to address collective global challenges has become increasingly urgent. South Asia continues to be an important area of engagement for Yale because of the region’s size – both population and economy – its growth potential, and our historic and more recent ties to the area.
Yale’s global strategy articulates the following high-level aspirations:
- Be the university that best prepares students for global citizenship and leadership
- Be a worldwide research leader on matters of global import
- Be the university with the most effective global networks
To achieve these goals and broader aspirations in South Asia, the university is developing coordinated strategies and tactics that build on the strengths of faculty at Yale to engage with the educational landscape emerging in the region. The increased use of video conferencing, the hiring of several new senior faculty who work in this region, the recent affiliation to Yale of the Evidence for Policy Design (EPoD India) initiative, and the launch of the Yale Research Initiative on Innovation and Scale (Y-RISE), combine to present us with new opportunities to amplify Yale’s South Asia network and its impact.
