Shoreline President Lee Lambert speaks Feb. 5, 2013 in New Delhi.

Shoreline Community College is joining the world in helping India embark on perhaps the biggest expansion of education ever.

Shoreline President Lee Lambert and Ann Garnsey-Harter, Shoreline’s virtual college director, are in New Delhi at the request of the Indian government and the U.S. State Department to present at an international conference on community colleges.

Why India? Because the government there has a goal of launching 300 new community colleges for 2013 academic year and adding thousands more in the coming years. 

“India is taking serious the challenge that the demographic dividend poses for them,” Lambert said from India. “As the youngest nation on the globe, with about 600 million individuals 25 and younger, the nation of India could have a positive global impact if they could educate more of their citizens.”

The conference, titled “Mainstreaming Skills Education: Creating Relevant Human Resource,” drew participants from the U.S., United Kingdom, Germany, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
