Hindu Youth for Unity, Virtue, and Action (Hindu YUVA)

Founded at UT Southwestern in fall 2022, The mission of Hindu YUVA is to bring together both Hindu and non-Hindu students to raise awareness about Hindu culture. As a minority in the United States and one of the oldest cultures in the world, we believe it is necessary that there be an organization on campus to cater to the needs of the community present here. We hope to create a comfortable atmosphere where students, postdoctoral researchers, staff, and faculty can come to ether to celebrate, practice, and create awareness about our culture.
