The USC delegation’s marathon tour through India concluded with a special panel, the USC Forum on Globalization and Innovation, arranged by the USC Viterbi School of Engineering, examining issues surrounding globalization and innovation in the 21st century from the India perspective. President Nikias (see photo below) welcomed attendees to the gathering, offering perspective on conditions that promote the most beneficial forms of innovation.

As the marathon wound down, the USC delegation enjoyed a quiet dinner before packing their bags and catching a 3:30 a.m. flight back to Los Angeles!
“It was a phenomenal trip, and I’d say that everyone on the delegation felt that the end of the trip felt more like a beginning,” said Varun Soni, dean of religious life at USC. “With the bonds that were formed here, USC now has the opportunity to be a major player in connecting the United States to one of the fastest-growing cultures and economies of the coming decades.”
