IIT Gandhinagar has developed a reputation for thinking outside traditional disciplinary boundaries, experimenting with various facets of education and fostering a culture of free inquiry and innovation. Exposing students to the diverse forms of India's cultural expressions is one of the distinctive features of an IIT Gandhinagar education.
In an effort to institutionalize some of the most successful curricular and extracurricular initiatives on cultural expression, IIT Gandhinagar has established Maulana Abul Kalam Azad Chair in Urdu.
The Chair will enable teaching of language and literature courses on Urdu through a full-time instructor. In addition, eminent scholars of Urdu will be invited to the Institute as visiting professors or scholars-in-residence for lectures, seminars and other scholarly endeavours.
