AIP supports interdisciplinary exchange among Indian and US faculty, staff and students. One way the project achieves this goal is through the participation of AIP collaborative partners from US and Indian universities in Cornell’s International Agricultural and Rural Development (IARD) 4020 and 6020 courses. In IARD 4020, students are exposed to a series of classroom lectures, e-lectures and online discussions that establish a global and regional context for sustainable agricultural development, with focus on specific developmental challenges in India. IARD 6020 begins with a 2-week-long field-study trip to India where US and Indian students and faculty come together to observe agricultural development challenges and methods discussed in IARD 4020. Participants have included students and faculty from the University of California, Davis; University of Georgia; Tuskegee University; Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel University of Agriculture & Technology; Bihar Agricultural University; Central Agricultural University; Assam Agricultural University; and Banaras Hindu University.
