AHIMSA Center Celebration 2.19.21
From Ana Domingo on February 25th, 2021
On behalf of the Cal Poly Pomona President Soraya M. Coley and Provost Sylvia Alva we invite you to a virtual celebration of the establishment of the Shri Shantinath Endowed Chair in Ahimsa Studies and the appointment of Tara Sethia, Professor of History, as the inaugural chair. The event will recognize the donors—Prem and Sandhya Jain, Jasvant and Meera Modi, and Bipin and Rekha Shah—for their generous gift and vision to advance the ideas of peace and nonviolence.
Ahimsa Center was established in 2003 by Dr. Tara Sethia in the College of Letters, Arts and Social Sciences. Under her leadership, the Center’s programs on our campus have included an interdisciplinary minor in Nonviolence Studies, a fellowship training program for K-12 educators, and numerous lectures, dialogues, conferences, and special events.
