Nilgiris Field Learning Center

Life Histories of Healers presentation, NFLC, Tamil Nadu, India

The Nilgiris Field Learning Center (NFLC) is a unique partnership between the Indian NGO, Keystone Foundation, and Cornell University. It aligns Cornell faculty and students with practitioners and community members in the Nilgiris, the “blue hills” of southern India.

Since 2015, the NFLC learning community has explored a range of issues and projects around sustainability, conservation, livelihoods, and education in a region recognized for its biodiversity. Students from Cornell and the indigenous communities of the Nilgiris develop leadership and research skills in a collaborative, cross-cultural, field-based learning environment.
