Presidential Chair in Jain Studies

The Department of Religious Studies has received a generous gift from Mrs. Mohini Jain to establish The Mohini Jain Presidential Chair in Jain Studies. The holder of the Chair will be a scholar of the Jain tradition, who will help us build a robust, interdisciplinary and innovative program in the study of Indian Religions at UC Davis. 

The University celebrated Mrs. Mohini Jain's gift of 1.5 Million dollars on February 21st, 2017. To mark the occassion, Professor Laurie Patton, President of Middlebury College, and an eminent scholar of Indian Religions delivered a delightful and thoughtprovoking talk on Dialogue in the Indian Religious traditions.
