Chair in Hindu Studies

Established in 1989, the Chair in Hindu Studies is the first of its kind in North America, and also the first Chair endowed at Concordia University. Dedicated to the interdisciplinary study of Hinduism, the Chair supports dissemination of knowledge about the tradition through teaching and research, public lectures, conferences at the national and international levels, and other academic events. Previous chair, Professor T.S. Rukmani, was also involved in deepening knowledge of Hinduism through community outreach programs. Additionally, as Concordia's Hindu chaplain at inter-faith gatherings, she played a significant role in enhancing inter-religious dialogue and multicultural understanding.

Students may pursue Hindu Studies at Concordia through undergraduate and graduate degree programmes in the Department of Religion.
