India and U.S. discuss working together on higher ed goals

India and the United States are putting aside any rivalry in the worldwide race to have the most college graduates to talk about higher education partnerships at a conference today and tomorrow in Washington, D.C. We wrote about the summit over the summer when it was announced. Now, the U.S. Department of State has posted an agenda for the meeting. Among the things leaders and educators from the two countries will be talking about: student and faculty exchanges, research partnerships, quality assurance—a major problem in India, and the responsibility of higher education in developing the workforce—something institutions in both countries are grappling with.
