NEW YORK -- What do you do, asked a fund raiser in the audience, when a prospective donor from Asia asks how much he has to give to get an honorary degree? From a scan of the room here at the Council for Advancement and Support of Education, it appeared that some were horrified that the question was asked and others were unfazed.

For U.S. universities, India remains a frontier of sorts. “Right now, we’re basically doing exploration of India, trying to figure out what the path forward is there,” said the president of Georgia State University, Mark P. Becker, who traveled to India this spring. Georgia State isn’t interested in opening a branch campus in India – one, because it doesn’t have the resources and two, because, Becker said, “it’s not exactly clear why we would want to do that at this point.” But the university – like many others in the U.S.

WASHINGTON – Given the influence of rapid globalization and the emergence of knowledge-based societies, the universities of the future will bear virtually no resemblance to those of today.
