The trip to Mumbai and New Delhi will be Coleman's fifth trip abroad intended to promote the university and strengthen its international ties, according to The Michigan Daily.
The trip will take place in November and last about a week, according to the Daily. Since becoming president in 2002, Coleman has traveled to South Africa, China, Ghana and, most recently, Brazil.
During the Brazil trip U-M's delegation included Coleman, six faculty members and Mark Tessler, the university's vice provost for international affairs.
“We are taking full advantage of these trips to try to make ourselves more accessible to these countries, as well as to have more impact," Coleman told the Daily.
