Until Recently, Dr. Singh was the President of AIU, and continues to be council member of ACU. Elected as a board member from Asia and South-Asia region, Dr. Singh will serve a period of four years in his personal capacity notwithstanding his position as the Vice-Chancellor of NLU, Delhi.

We will conduct programs in India as well, in collaboration with the IAU. This will allow us to get recognition at a global level, which will benefit NLU Delhi and other higher educational institutions in the country.
