The University of Chicago opened a major new academic center in Delhi to support and expand opportunities for collaboration among scholars and students from India and Chicago across academic disciplines. The Center in Delhi is a home for research and education for University of Chicago faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates working in India and throughout South Asia, as well as Indian researchers and students representing a wide array of institutions, and scholars from around the world.
The Center promotes scholarship and teaching under three broad umbrellas: business, economics, law, and policy; science, energy, medicine, and public health; and culture, society, religion, and the arts. It represents all parts of the University, including the College, the academic divisions, the professional schools, and the University’s affiliated laboratories.
Located in the vibrant cultural and commercial district of Connaught Place, the 17,000-square-foot Center provides space for seminars and conferences, as well as faculty offices and study areas.
