Indian Delegation Visits VCU to Discuss Collaboration

Date: 14th June 2012

RICHMOND, VA (June 8, 2012)?Virginia Commonwealth University welcomed a delegation of Indian educators on Thursday, led by Dr. Sankaran Raghunathan, Dean of The National Management School in Chennai, India. The group’s visit was part of the Indo-American Chamber of Commerce’s (IACC) Indo US Education Forum, a two-week visit to the U.S. that enables Indian universities to discuss collaboration opportunities with U.S. institutions of higher education.



According to the IACC, the purpose of the forum is to provide a platform for Indian universities to interact and establish long term relationships with U.S. universities and to collaborate in key areas such as twinning programs, joint certifications, dual degrees, research, faculty exchanges and study abroad programs.

“Education trends are constantly changing and forums like this allow us to look at the many ways we can develop partnerships,” said Raghunathan. “In addition to identifying potential areas of future collaboration, we want to gain a better understanding of the physical learning environments that are created in U.S. universities.”

After touring the VCU campus, the delegation met with Dr. Michael Rao, Provost Beverly Warren, and representatives from VCU’s School of Engineering and School of Business. “These institutions are some of the world’s leaders in innovation,” said Provost Warren. “We are always looking for ways to develop strategic partnerships in innovation and to think about education in ways we’ve never thought before.”

VCU’s Global Education Office hosted the delegation’s visit. “The fact that VCU was one of the selected destinations for this delegation speaks to the increasingly visible role we play on the world stage both as a university and a city,” said GEO Executive Director McKenna Brown. “These kinds of linkages provide our students with the global connections they’ll need to be competitive.”

The visit was one in a long list of VCU collaborations with universities in India, including the university’s ongoing partnership with the Indian Institute of Technology, the Christ University-VCU MBA/MS Program and the recent campaign to establish the India Chair in Democracy and Civil Society.

VCU was one of thirteen universities visited by the delegation and many of the arrangements were made by the U.S. Department of Commerce, according to Raghunathan. George Mason University was the only other Virginia university visited since the group arrived in the U.S. on May 28th. 

In addition to Raghunathan, delegates who took part in the visit included Dr. H. D. Maheshappa, U. K. Ashoke Rao, and Dr. C. Vijaykumar of Acharya School of Management; Pradeep Alexandar of American University of India; Dr. Jyoti R. Dandekar of Bharti Vidyapeeth University; Mini Juneja and Dr. O. B. Vijayan of EIILM University; Nathalie Poirier of ICMI Studies Pvt Ltd.; A. Damodaram, Rameshwara Rao and M. Anji Reddy of Jawaharlal Nehru Technology University; Sila Singh Ghosh of JIS College of Engineering; Dr. Rajneesh Arora of Punjab Technical University; M. G. Gopal of Govt of Andhra Pradhesh; Sapna Samtani of Indo American Chamber of Commerce; and Dr. Indira J Parikh of the Foundation for Liberal and Management Education.
