Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Indiana University President Michael McRobbie is helping lead a delegation of U.S. college officials and researchers to India to discuss development of an information network.

McRobbie and Internet2 chief executive H. David Lambert are leading the delegation to New Delhi this week aimed at establishing a partnership with India's National Knowledge Network.

The goal is to work together to promote research, education, Internet freedom and other interests.

Internet2 is a member-owned digital network founded by several U.S. universities in 1996 as an environment for research and education. Its network operating center is powered by Indiana University.

Internet2 serves more than 250 U.S. universities, 70 government agencies, and 38 regional and state education networks.

  • what value is he doing for Indiana
    Question, why should he be in India when he needs to focus on U.S. and Indiana interests in providing value to Indiana. He is a state employee after all. Is it in the best interests of IU to do this and the state of Indiana.
  • tighter ties with India
    Interesting, tighter ties with India can only mean more Indian students at IU and more H1B's and Green Cards in Indiana in Technology positions that should be taken by U.S./Indiana citizens.
