Ashoka University, Cornell University Inks MoA

The partnership seeks to facilitate international academic exchange and develop scientific relationships

Ashoka University has entered into a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) with Cornell University, Ithaca, New York, USA, which provides a broad framework for cooperative programmes between the two universities. It seeks to facilitate international academic exchange, develop scientific relationships and support collaborative research activities in addition to developing student exchange and related programmes in separate project agreements.

Ashoka University has engaged with Cornell Global Hubs’ as a partner that connects Cornell to all its partners across the globe. Senior leaders and faculty from Ashoka participated in the Global Grand Challenges Symposium held on 16-17, November 2022. The Symposium brought the Cornell community and its international partners to discuss the most urgent challenges around the world and how to work together to address these. Vanita Shastri, Dean of Global Education and Strategic Partnerships was part of two forums. The first was a panel on Knowledge: What Counts, for Whom and to What Ends, that discussed innovations in higher education, social media, new forms of knowledge production and inequalities in access and security, privacy, disinformation and the role of knowledge in democracies. The second session was on Building Collaborative Research: Models, Ideas and Impact that discussed how research across partners can be best done and what are its challenges.
