We hope to build a community and resource pool for sharing expertise and making connections between the colleges of ASIANetwork and the All India Association for Christian Higher Education (AIACHE). Your responses will become part of an online database and networking space in a password-protected area of the ASIANetwork website. Through this database and a corresponding one of AIACHE members, we will invite faculty from member institutions of our two consortia to meet each other, learn of each others’ complementary interests and skills, and take their relationships in whatever directions they choose.
