Mumbai University hunts for US campus siteTNN.
Vice-chancellor Sanjay Deshmukh, who recently went scouting in the United States to set up an international campus, has identified a few viable options. He's either looking at buying a building on 24th Street, Manhattan or purchasing a university in Houston, Texas. If neither works out, there's an option to set up a facility within the University of Akron in Ohio.
"We are creating history," said Deshmukh. "A physical campus of Mumbai University in America is not far away." The objective is to create an offshore facility which will design new courses in areas of emerging interest such as international politics, leadership and life coaching. The US campus would benefit from tie-ups with foreign partners and complement the intellectual resources of the existing Mumbai campus.
