Discussion Topic: “Balancing spiritual values and contemporary campus life”
Drawing from his work in university chaplaincy as well as his own experience as a second generation Hindu American who found his own faith calling in his youth, Mr. Chander will explore the challenges of retaining personal and spiritual values during college.
Vineet Chander has pioneered the work of Hindu chaplaincy in American higher education as the nation’s first full-time Hindu chaplain. Since 2008 he has served at Princeton University where he has built a robust Hindu Life program. Vineet earned his Juris Doctor degree from the George Washington University Law School. He has also served as an adjunct professor, attorney, and communications consultant. His areas of specialty include the Bhakti movement, models of pastoral counseling, and the Hindu-American diaspora community. His writing has appeared in many publications, and he is co-author of Hindu Chaplaincy (Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies, 2017).
A catered Indian dinner will be served.
