UMD President Loh and Gov. Martin O’Malley visit India

In just six days, university President Wallace Loh and a team of university officials visited eight Indian universities hoping to increase collaboration and create more opportunities abroad for students- and many said the trip was more successful than they had anticipated.

Gov. Martin O’Malley led the 100-person delegation Loh traveled with last week to foster a more globally connected institution and increase both the university’s and the state’s relationship with India. Loh met with the vice chancellor- the equivalent of a university president- of Delhi University and said the pair agreed to collaborate on innovation and entrepreneurship projects. Additionally, officials from the University of Hyderabad agreed to meet for a conference next year to discuss research endeavors, which may relate to cybersecurity, Loh said.
