Higher Education Foundation, USA
As an entrepreneur and innovator, I understand the critical role that higher education plays in shaping the future of our society. Consortium for Advancing Indian Tertiary Education (CITE) is a wonderful platform thanks to the vision and leadership of several American and Indian leaders in higher education. CITE has the potential to transform the higher education ecosystem in India by positively impacting teaching, learning, research, faculty development, industry collaboration, government engagement, internationalization and global branding of our universities and institutes of higher education.
CITE is a proper platform to discuss and deliberate with Government (both stage and central) on policy matters and an opportunity to learn from the developed country universities in global accreditation and ranking. Coordinate with industry experts for raising funds for research under CSR.
I founded Higher Education Foundation (HEF) in US to support CITE in its activities with US participants for fund raising and collaboration with various universities and philanthropists. I am strong believer that academics are integrated with industry and societal expectation then only the education have the value.
As a founding member, I extend my support to CITE and will collaborate with all its members, advisors, and the leadership team to organize regional, national, and international conferences and training programmes which is to strengthen India’s position in global higher education.
