Founder and Executive Director

Dr. Asha Samant

Dr. Asha Samant serves on the Board of Trustees as Faculty Senate Representative on Rutgers University, The State University of New Jersey. This is an elected position. This year was the 250th Anniversary of Rutgers University, during which the commencement guest was honorable President of the United States, Barack Obama. It was a historical event. Dr. Samant was fortunate to join the President on the stage along with other Rutgers staff and faculty. It was indeed a unique privilege for Dr. Asha and a memorable event for her. IDANA is proud that Asha is one of their founding members.
