Notre Dame, Balkh University faculty meet for the first time

For the past week, several University of Notre Dame faculty have spent time in Mumbai, India, getting to know faculty from Balkh University in Afghanistan. Among other things, the group enjoyed a walking tour of the Fort Heritage area (pictured above). Additionally, Notre Dame faculty were given a beautiful handwoven rug from their Balkh counterparts as a parting gift. Notre Dame is assisting the College of Economics at Balkh University with implementing a new Master of Science in Finance and Accounting and will continue to do so following the conclusion of this kick-off meeting.
