Cornell Courts a Subcontinent
Selingo, Jeffrey
Chronicle of Higher Education, v53 n26 pA38 Mar 2007
India is increasingly showing up on the travel schedules of college presidents nationwide. Like American corporations that began coming to India more than a decade ago to tap the brain power of its millions of inexpensive, well-educated engineers, software writers, and medical technicians, American higher-education institutions are flocking here to recruit Indian students, set up academic and research ventures, and raise money, largely through their rapidly expanding alumni bases. The most ambitious among them are considering joint-degree programs or full-fledged campuses. In this article, the author features the visit of Cornell University's delegation to India. The trip was designed to extend university-partnerships that would greatly improve the quality of higher-education in both countries and universities. The visit was also organized to help Indian universities foster linkages and global access to topnotch research universities that could help them solve universal problems.
