CHANDIGARH, India, Sept. 27, 2021 — American people are learning from Indians by allying with India in various fields, and the people of both countries benefit from multiple alliances. Michael Rosenthal, Director, North India Office (NIO), US Embassy, said. He was speaking during the inaugural ceremony of the US Studies Center at Chandigarh University. Chandigarh University has set up a US Study Center on the campus to create opportunities for students to study in leading academic institutions of America. The study center will prove to be an essential factor in providing long-term and short-term programs to university students, joint research programs, preparation for visa interviews, USA in-house degree programs, and promoting cultural and social exchange between the two countries.

The US has always welcomed students from all over the world, including India. Indian students bring so many skills, ideas, and enthusiasm which helps the people and society of the US, Michael Rosenthal said. He further added, “The collaboration between the US and Indian educational institutions has been growing over the last few years. Students and faculty from both countries are learning from each other through Joint Research and Exchange Program. It reflects the strong academic ties between the US and India.” The relations between India and the USA are not merely ties between two governments, but this relationship is people-driven and people-centric, added Michael Rosenthal.

While speaking on the Indo-US relationship, Michael Rosenthal said, “The US is one of the top trading partners in terms of goods and services for India. The bilateral trade between India and the US has scaled to new heights and touched $ 150 billion in recent time. The United States and India have shared interests in promoting global security, stability, and economic prosperity through trade, investment, and connectivity”. The strong people-to-people ties, educational institutions tie-ups, and scientists of both the nations doing research together is a tremendous source of strength for the Indo-US partnership, added Mr. Rosenthal.

“US Study Center established at the campus of Chandigarh University is a symbol of further improving the relationship between the US and India. This center will facilitate more educational exchanges, more scientific research, and more study opportunities between the students of both the countries,” said Michael Rosenthal. While talking about the New Education Policy of India, Michael Rosenthal said, “India’s New Education Policy opens up new opportunities for collaboration with the foreign countries. India has great minds, faculty, institutions, and research facility. Therefore, many US universities, educational institutes, and individuals are interested in collaborating with Indian universities for various research programs.”

With this newly inaugurated US Study Center, students will enroll in universities in the US with exclusive scholarship facilities. The US Study Center, set up in the university campus, includes the coordination offices of the University of North Alabama and Arkansas State University. The newly inaugurated center will provide an in-house MBA program under the 1+1 plan. Students will study at Chandigarh University Campus for one year and complete the remaining study with scholarship facilities at the University of North Alabama. In addition, the center will offer training and preparation courses for the National Council Licensing Examination (NCLEX) for licensure of nurses in the US, Canada, and Australia. Furthermore, the campus-based center will organize joint conferences, seminars, workshops, and joint research activities in collaboration with partner universities in the US to provide students with world-class knowledge on research and innovation.

Chandigarh University Chancellor Satnam Singh Sandhu said, “To provide world-class employment and quality education to the students, the university has established academic alliances with more than 308 best universities in 68 countries including Canada, USA, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe.” Chandigarh University has tied up with 25 universities in the US so far, and more than 192 its students are already pursuing their studies in the US under various programs.”
