Brihan Maharashtra Mandal education meet in US to promote joint initiatives

Source : Times of India
July 30, 2012

PUNE: The Brihan Maharashtra Mandal (BMM), an apex body of 42 Marathi community organizations in the US, plans to hold an education conference for promoting joint academic initiatives between Indian and US higher education institutions, as part of its biennial convention scheduled for July next year in Boston, US.

 

A day-long brainstorming session, involving the heads and representatives of 30 prominent higher education institutions from Pune and Mumbai, was conducted by the BMM on Saturday to identify the priority areas for deliberation during the education conference. Symbiosis International University vice-chancellor Bhushan Patwardhan and MIT group of institution's executive director Sunil Karad were among the prominent figures, who attended the session.

 

"We (BMM) have been holding our convention every two years in US and the same regularly features talented artists and socially influential people. For the next convention, we decided to include education and allied issues as part of this event," BMM's convenor Bal Mahale, who is also an alumnus of Fergusson College, told reporters after the session. "The opportunities of collaboration between Indian and US institutions of higher learning have increased exponentially in the last one decade. However, there is no proper forum where representatives from either countries can engage in a fruitful discussion resulting in materialization of such collaborations, " said Mahale.

 

"The BMM aims at utilizing the expertise, influence and services of non-resident Indians based in the US to serve as a bridge between the universities and institutions in India and US," he said. "Today's session was primarily aimed at seeking a feedback on the expectations from Indian institutions," Mahale said.

 

Mahale said some of the key areas identified for deliberations include the need to promote India as a higher education destination for students in the US, enhancing faculty-student exchange programmes, collaborations in research and entrepreneurship for generation of revenue from research at the university level and exchange of ideas for joint academic projects.

 

"We plan to conduct a delegation of 50 to 60 representatives of Indian higher education institutions for the Boston event next year. The idea is to get these representatives to engage in a dialogue with some of the leading institutions in Boston as well as representatives of the US government," he said.
