The ACU is excited to announce a series of in-person roundtables in India from 27 March to 31 March 2023.

Each roundtable will focus on a theme relevant to higher education in India, and will be hosted in partnership with three of our prestigious member universities:

  • CHRIST (Deemed to be University), Bengaluru
  • Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai
  • Amity University Uttar Pradesh, Noida (Delhi NCR) 

The roundtables bring universities together to discuss topics of common relevance, such as digitalisation, internationalisation, and sustainable partnerships. They will also highlight the important role higher education plays in addressing global challenges.

We invite members, honourable vice-chancellors and higher education industry experts to attend and share best practice, establish partnerships, and discuss issues crucial to the evolution of higher education and work in India.

The roundtables will offer the opportunity to build connections and deepen relationships with universities from India and across the Commonwealth. The events will also stimulate discussion on developing sustainable projects and partnerships between attendees.

Further Details

The roundtables will be hosted at our partner universities in the three cities of Bengaluru, Mumbai and Delhi, on the 27, 29 and 31 of March respectively.
