The South Asia program is the result of efforts by faculty involved in the South Asia Project. Starting with existing courses, the program has expanded to include new ones, either with completely South Asian content or revised to include at least 25% South Asian content. The project includes all colleges with undergraduate programs, including the professional, technical and applied fields. Faculty are also building linkages with South Asian universities and other institutions for faculty/curriculum development and to create opportunities for K-State students in South Asia.
