Objectives and Priorities

From 2014-18, Center activities will be guided by the following three objectives:

  1. Identifying 21st century global skills and implementing these into area studies and disciplinary curricula
  2. Expanding our institutional network of affiliated faculty and its impact on the study of South Asia in K-16 education, with particular attention to increasing the number from area community colleges and minority-serving institutions
  3. Improving capacity to produce South Asia expertise in Penn’s professional schools, including in STEM fields through enhanced linkages with Indian educational institutions, and in the Graduate School of Education (GSE)
