On August 9, 2002, India Abroad featured an article on the expansion plans for the Hindu University of America in Florida. The current President, Bhudev Sharma, says the university will be "' a broad-based, broad-minded university, which would be open not only to Hindus but to anybody who wants to come and learn true Indian studies'... Sharma said the need was primarily seen among Hindus living in the United States and desirous of a scholarly exposure to their culture and faith." The university plans to offer academic graduate programs in Hinduism and Indian Studies, following the model of American graduate degrees.
