EPSI - Education Promotion Society for India, a National body representing wide spectrum of education sector and education service providers has organised its 4thIndia Pavilion at the 70th Edition of NAFSA Annual Conference and Expo, at Philadelphia, USA from 28th May to 1st June, 2018. From India 20 leading educational institutions have taken booth at India Pavilion and 45 Indian delegates are attending the Expo & Conference. The Government of India, Ministry of HRD nominated Prof. Anil Dattatraya Sahasrabudhe, Chairman, AICTE to lead the delegation and inaugurate the India Pavilion. Mrs. Usha Natesan, Advisor, AICTE was also present on the occasion.
While delivering his inaugural address Prof. Sahasrabudhe, shared with the delegates how the Government and private sector can work together. He emphasized that it is not necessary that the Quality assurance should come by means of regulation of the Government. On the contrary, it has to come on its own. All should wilfully avail the Accreditation and NIRF and this will give healthy competition. AICTE Chairman insisted that self introspection is necessary. Simultaneously he informed that we cannot expect all from every institution as each and every one will have its own strength and the same has to be strengthened well. Every institution will have their best practices, so each other should follow and understand their strength and weaknesses. Accordingly they have to correct themselves.
Prof Sahasrabudhe also expressed that this is a good platform for the Institutions where they could meet the world class institutions at one place and understand the best practices being followed by them, as there are about 120 countries participating in such a huge event. While appreciating the efforts made by EPSI, he also suggested Mr. Palanivel, Executive Secretary, EPSI that EPSI should initiate similar type of Expo & Conference at India like this and invite all international diaspro to show case them at India, as India is having all kinds of education and delivering quality education. Indian institutions also would have an opportunity to meet the international educational institutions. He wished EPSI that in future they should bring more Indian institutions, and even if they are 80 institutions from India participating in this huge conference, the Indian Pavilion should become the bigger one than anyone else. This will attract the international community and show case Indian education in better way.
Mrs. Usha Natesan, Advisor, AICTE, while delivering her address thanked all the Indian institutions who are participating and show casing them in the huge expo. In her view this is really a good opportunity for the institutions to meet the international diaspro and make several collaborations with them.
Before this inauguration, EPSI also organized Indo-Canadian Meet. Prof. Anil Sahasrabuddhe led the Indian delegation. Ms. Nadia Scipio Del Campo led on behalf of Canadian delegation. In her address, Nadia informed about the Canadian education and showed keen interest to tie up with the Indian educational institutions. Prof. Anil Sahasrabuddhe made presentation about Indian education. He informed the Canadian delegation that India is having 840+ Universities, 40,000 colleges and the regulation system also. He has assured that whatever support the Canadian Institutions needed, it is available in India with good delivery. There are about 50 Canadian delegates attended. The Indian Institutions could have one-to-one interaction with them.
