Welcome to the South Asia Center
Syracuse University has a well established and extensive involvement in teaching and research on the South Asian region: the nations of Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. The South Asia Center of Syracuse University, a part of the Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs, is a United States Department of Education National Resource Center.
The Center participates in collaboration with Cornell University to form a consortium with a focus on the research and scholarship of the countries in the South Asia region.
