On November 10, 2022 Trinity Western University President Dr. Mark Husbands signed an Expression of Interest with Dr. John Varghese, Principal of St. Stephen’s College in Delhi, India.
Widely regarded as among the oldest and most prestigious liberal arts and sciences institutions in India, St. Stephen’s College—a constituent college of the University of Delhi—has been on the forefront of Indian education since its founding by the Cambridge Mission to Delhi over 140 years ago, in 1881.
This signing highlights the first day of activity in TWU President Mark Husbands’ his first goodwill tour of India.
The parties agreed to schedule further discussions about collaborations in humanities, communication, leadership and sport. The members of the delegation from Canada include Dr. Phil Laird, Vice President of Innovation, Global and Academic Partnerships, and Mr. Sushil Rajaratnam, Project Manager for FAR Centres and Innovation Series Strategist.
Joining Dr. Varghese from St. Stephen's College is Dr. Sanil Unnikrishnan, Dean of International Relations.
The goodwill tour represents TWU’s first visit to India since the pandemic. Dr. Laird specifies the purpose of the goodwill tour: “to strengthen our partnerships through conferences and collaborative discussions and to develop a deeper understanding of the background and circumstances of TWU students who originate from India.”
