CMC recently became an institutional member of the American Institute of Indian Studies (AIIS), which is headquartered at the University of Chicago and has several academic centers spread around India. Established in 1961, AIIS is dedicated to the advancement of knowledge about India and the promotion of intellectual engagement with India in American institutions of higher education.
Aleta Wenger (Executive Director for International Programs) says, "CMC's institutional membership in AIIS will strengthen and expand opportunities for CMC students and faculty in India, as we will be able to utilize its centers, resource libraries, and other facilities in India."
Associate Professor of Religious Studies Cynthia Humes will visit AIIS in India during a faculty research trip to India in July, 2012.
