Carleton Signs MOU to renew India studies chair

June 17, 2016

Carleton University President Roseann O’Reilly Runte has signed an MOU with the High Commissioner of India to Canada to renew a visiting chair focused on India-related studies at Carleton. Valid for five years, the agreement will see Carleton host a visiting professor who will serve as a chair for a four-month semester each academic year. “The India Chair has proven to be a wonderful experience,” said Runte. “It’s an opportunity for us to build bridges of culture and understanding, and to have our students exposed to different forms of teaching. It’s very significant that the Indian government is doing this with Carleton. India has such a rich culture to share.” Carleton
