Vineet Chander

Vineet Chander

Vineet Chander is the Coordinator for Hindu Life at Princeton University and Adjunct Professor at Farleigh Dickinson University, and a Religious Life Leader at the Lawrenceville School. He has also served as an adjunct professor, and 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 publications ranging from the Journal of Vaishnava Studies to the George Washington University International Law Review, and has written regularly for The Hufffington Post and Vineet lives in New Jersey with his wife and daughter.

As the nation's first and only full-time Hindu chaplain and program director, Vineet's work with Hindu-American students at one of the world's premier educational institutions affords him a unique vantage point and powerful experiences from which to draw.

Vineet's work with the Hindu-American community is also unapologetically autobiographical-- he is a second-generation Hindu American, who was born and raised in New York City and discovered his own faith calling in his youth.

To further his personal and professional goals, Vineet is pursuing graduate study at Rutgers University in Religion with a concentration in Hindu Studies and Contemplative Studies.
