MoU signed for Jain Studies

Today, Jain Education and Research Foundation ( signed an MoU to establish a Professorship in Jain Studies at the University of North Texas (UNT). This is the next major initiative after successful establishment of the Bhagwan Mahavir Professorship of Jain Studies at Florida International University (FIU) in Miami in 2010. The professorship at FIU has flourished in the past 6 years exposing thousands of students to Jain values through academic courses and other programs. The program at UNT aims to follow in the footsteps of FIU to create a perpetual center of Jain education and research. UNT is ideally suited for this endeavor with its many scholars of Jainism and other Asian cultures. UNT is also one of the largest Tier-1 US universities with student body of almost 40,000 from a diverse religious and ethnic backgrounds.
