At the fundraiser Dr. Gurleen Grewal, Director of the Center for India Studies, introduced the Center to members of the community inviting ideas and participation. Also addressing the audience that evening were Dr. Maria Crummett, Dean of International Affairs; Dr. Tapas Das, Associate Provost at the University of South Florida; and Dr. Lynette Menezes, Director of International Affairs, College of Medicine.
