Cornell University of the US has signed an agreement with O.P. Jindal Global University to build a global hub in India, and to expand its existing collaboration in law studies to other areas too.
Located across the world, the global hubs connect all of Cornell with strong international peer institutions. Hubs are broad-reaching partnerships that combine research, learning, and engagement, and bring together faculty, students, alumni, businesses, and the public and private sector. Faculty and students across the global hubs join a network of transnational research and educational opportunities.
No two hubs are identical, but all share Cornell’s academic distinction, educational verve, and civic responsibility. Each hub is unique, but all are grounded in partnerships with strong local universities.
“JGU and Cornell have been working closely in the field of law for over a decade,” said Dr. C. Raj Kumar, founding vice chancellor of O.P. Jindal Global University. “The new reimagined and expanded collaboration has immense potential to provide an outstanding platform for students and faculty members of both institutions across all domains of mutual expertise.” Added Dr Wendy Wolford, vice provost for international Affairs, Cornell: “Hubs build the kind of strong, long-term international relationships that create understanding and meaningful change. We’re excited to have O. P. Jindal Global University as a global hubs partner.”
Cornell University, an ivy league institution, is known for its excellence in quality higher education and research across domains, with 61 Nobel laureates, four Turing Award winners and one Fields medalist having been affiliated to it. O.P. Jindal Global University, having received the tag of an Institution of Eminence has been judged India’s first ranked private university third time in a row by the QS World Universities Rankings.
