International Knowledge Center

In order to provide on-the-ground support for existing and future activities in India, the University of Iowa has partnered with GenNext Education to benefit from office space and staff support at their International Knowledge Center (IKC) in Bangalore, India. The IKC functions as the UI’s India liaison office, providing support in south India and throughout the country for linkages with businesses and educational institutions, study abroad partnerships, service-learning and internship programs, recruitment efforts to bring highly-qualified Indian students to Iowa, and to strengthen connections to friends and alumni.

The IKC occupies the entire second floor of an office building that is centrally located in Bangalore, and is equipped with a large display and meeting area for presentations. There are also several workstations available with high-speed internet access. The IKC can provide UI faculty with individual and group meeting space, and with staff support to help UI departments work with their partners in India.

For more information and to discuss ways in which the IKC can help support research and training projects, departmental and collegiate activities, targeted recruitment efforts, industry partnerships, alumni relations, or other activities, please contact Downing Thomas at
