A Young University in India Focuses on Real-World Industry and Sustainability

Chronicle of Higher Education, v55 n18 pA20 Jan 2009
A small, relatively new Indian university is making a name for itself--nationally and internationally--in the rapidly growing field of sustainable development. TERI University, the creation of one of India's leading environmentalists, has won praise from industry executives and academics alike. They say the institution is tackling some of the world's most pressing environmental problems, including poverty and pollution, and has the intellectual brainpower to make a difference. TERI's strengths lie in its close relationship with its research-institute parent, the Energy and Resources Institute, founded by Rajendra Pachauri in 1974.
