Many Indian students often wonder at the number and choice of subjects offered at colleges abroad. While most also harbour dreams of availing of 'better' education in other countries, only a few can actually do so. United States-based Cayuga Community College is trying to make more Indian students get this opportunity. Having already signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with North Maharashtra University, Jalgaon, where their first batch would begin in the coming academic year, the New York-based college has now approached Nagpur University for a similar agreement.
"We wish to provide bright Indian students who may otherwise not get the chance to study in a foreign country, the same kind of education in their own universities," said Daniel P Larson, president of Cayuga Community College. Agreed dean of enrollment of the college Cheryl Anderson saying there was stress on affordability and accessibility while providing the best provisions of education systems from across the world. "The aim is to incorporate the best educational practices from all countries and overcome the difficulties. We would also try to make use of all possible tools like online, distance and hybrid education," she said. Nikhil Bodhankar, who is an international adviser for the college, said that the aim was to integrate the great intellectual capacities that Indians were known for with the flexible system and personal touch that were the hallmarks of education in US. "We will initially focus only at undergraduate level, beginning with offering one course and then move to bigger things," he said. The professor emeritus of philosophy in the college, Jeffery Delbel said he believed the college would also prove to be a boon for students who wished to pursue an education along with work. "We would follow the credit system, where completion of a particular area of study is more important than doing so within a particular time. This would make it easier for students to study at their own speed and convenience," he said.
