In this paper, we examine the necessity that has emerged in Indian universities for robust student support and quality assessment methodologies for the retention of high calibre students and faculty. Moreover, we illustrate the enormous demand from the west for these types of services to be offered in Indian private and public universities. In particular, many new innovative private and public university programs and infrastructures have developed that address the demands of cross circulation with western academic programs. Are such methodologies, modeled closely after those in the West, encountering success in higher education institutions in thriving, developing nations, like India? Should they be modified to coalesce with the current departmental and administrative structures within Indian institutions? We focus our attention in this article on India – which has one of the fastest growing higher education markets in the world.
