Indian student recruitment a priority for uAlberta

February 6, 2009

University of Alberta president Indira Samarasekera says a major priority for the school is to attract more students and scholars from India, one of the world's most competitive recruitment markets, given that half of the country's one-billion population is under 25. The move would boost the university's international presence, and provide Alberta with connections to top young minds. On a recent trip to India, Samarasekera promoted Alberta's strengths in nanotechnology, oil and agriculture, as well as the university's new chair in ancient Indian history. Edmonton Journal
