Partners with India: Building Agricultural Universities.
U.S. land grant universities assisted, under the aegis of AID (Agency for International Development), in the development of Indian agricultural universities. Part 1 of this document establishes the historical setting for the partnership of the American-Indian project. It reviews the origin of the U.S. land grant universities, relates this origin to the strikingly similar needs of India after her independence, and traces the creation and early progress of the AID-university technical assistance efforts in India. Part 2 recounts how the six involved universities helped nine states in India build their new agricultural universities. Part 3 summarizes the dimensions of the U.S. university efforts in India, analyzes the progress made by the nine assisted Indian agricultural universities, and presents the author's views on some aspects of the Indo-American experience.
