UNT, like many U.S. universities, is turning to international partnerships as a means to build research in STEM - science, technology, engineering, and mathematics - and other disciplines. Indian universities offer opportunities for such exchange.
Buoyed by a thriving economy and technology foundation, in the last two decades India has invested significant resources and planning into improving its higher education sector, research infrastructure, talent base and economy.
In January 2012, a 15-member cross-disciplinary delegation of faculty and administrators traveled with Vish Prasad, vice president for research and economic development, and Warren Burggren, provost and vice president for academic affairs, to meet with scholars and administrators at more than 20 Indian universities. UNT delegations have visited India since 2007. As a result of these meetings, UNT has 11 agreements with institutions in India, with others pending.
