Press Release, Mar 12, 2021, 6:52 PM IST

Manipal: Manipal Academy of Higher Education (MAHE), along with the US Consulate General in Chennai, in partnership with EducationUSA Bangalore, organized a virtual presentation as part of the US Mission to India’s 100-in-100 campaign on Thursday, March 11.

Commemorating the first 100 days of a new US presidential administration has been a tradition of the American political system since 1930. Every presidential administration since then has taken the opportunity to articulate a bold agenda for its first 100 days in office.

The US Mission to India is using the first 100 days of the Biden administration to engage robustly with youth across India through meaningful conversations about the future of the US-India relationship.

Vice-chancellor of MAHE, Lieutenanat General (Dr) MD Venkatesh inaugurated the program, which is a part of the 100 in 100 campaign, in a high-profile virtual event attended by the students and teaching staff of Manipal Institute of Technology, Manipal Institute of Communication, and the department of geopolitics and international relations.

The vice-chancellor in his address emphasized the significance of enhancing bilateral partnership for education and building a more prosperous and sustainable world.

He stated that the two countries cooperating on reforms of higher education would improve student and faculty exchanges, thus promoting equity and access in education.

Cori Bickel, press officer, US Consulate General in Chennai, in her presentation on US-India relations stated that the two largest democracies in the world share mutual interests in many areas, and the shared ideals should bring India and America closer.

Education is one of many such shared interests.

The United States is the top global destination for international students, attracting students from almost every country across the globe. Indian students in the United States are a huge success story for our relationship. Indian students enrich our universities and colleges, diversify our campuses, contribute to the American economy, and build lifelong bonds with Americans.

Anita Bose Natarajan, advisor, EducationUSA Bangalore at Yashna Trust presented graduate opportunities in the US primarily for students seeking a Master’s and/or PhD degree in the US.

She underlined the importance of building skills outside the academic offerings, which will contribute to overall personality development and building the institution as a whole.

Dr Raghu Radhakrishnan, director, International Collaboration concluded the meeting expressing his gratitude to the US consulate general in Chennai, and EducationUSA Bangalore at Yashna Trust.

He lauded the efforts of the US Mission to India for engaging students at 100 secondary schools and universities throughout the country in the first 100 days of the new administration.
