According to the University, the India Alumni Network and Ambassadors program will provide new opportunities for local alumni to connect with one another, expand their networks, and grow community engagement initiatives across several cities in India.
The University of Melbourne takes great pride in the strong partnerships developed in India, and it has been my privilege to see for myself the mutual benefit, capability development, and impact we are creating together,” said Professor Phillips, the University’s standing deputy Vice-Chancellor and Chief Academic Officer, in a media release.
According to the press release, Nick Blinco, Vice-President Advancement, Communications, and Marketing, stated during the launch of the Ambassadors Program and addressing a large cohort of India-based University alumni that the Australia-India connection is one of the most important international relationships for the University of Melbourne, which is committed to supporting India’s education agenda.
The University of Melbourne has many long-term collaborations with prestigious Indian universities. “The University’s ambition has been to partner across the learning lifecycle and co-design and pilot programs that enable a scalable approach to providing education opportunities to as many Indian students as possible,” said the University.
The University of Melbourne will also expand its presence in India next year, with the establishment of a Global Centre in Delhi to build on existing engagements in the country. The facility will allow the institution to display its entire range of educational courses and research programs, as well as host events such as lecture series, cultural performances, and exhibitions.
