Prof. Jagadish Shukla

“My mother said to me, this is great that you travel the world, but what have you done for the village? So my wife and I said, let’s start a college in the village, because most of the girls were unable to travel to the city to get an education. We named it Gandhi College. We have about 800 students. Seventy to eighty percent are women.” — Prof. Jagadish Shukla

Professor Jagadish Shukla’s Gift is the Latest Step in A Remarkable Life Journey

The remarkable journey that has brought Jagadish Shukla from his childhood in a rural village in India to world prominence at George Mason University continues to find new paths for impact.

Shukla, a professor of climate dynamics at Mason since 1994, has made his mark in both the United States and India not only as a scholar and researcher, but as an institution-builder, benefactor of education and social justice, and philanthropist.

Epitomizing his dedication to Mason and his chosen field, Shukla and his wife recently made a generous pledge to provide lasting support for doctoral fellowships in the College of Science.
