About the Vegan Studies Initiative

The Vegan Studies Initiative at Arihanta Institute is a groundbreaking online program focused on promoting and enacting veganism as an expression of multispecies nonviolence. The initiative is multipronged, interweaving: (1) Graduate-level academic training; (2) Live and Self-paced online learning courses; (3) Public conferences and guest speaker events; (4) Global partnerships with aligned organizations. Our mission is to educate, empower, and connect everyone—Jain and non-Jain—passionate about reimagining and co-creating a world in which our values and actions converge. Please join us in pursuing a future dedicated to compassion and consideration for all!
