Arul serves as the national director for South Asian InterVarsity.

Arul is a third-culture kid having grown up in Australia, South India and the U.S. He graduated from the University of Central Florida with a degree in molecular biology and instead of pursuing medical studies decided to join InterVarsity staff. Arul enjoys starting new things and shortly after coming on staff planted an SAIV movement at his alma mater. During his time there, he helped create the Faith and Chai event that has spread around the country and inspired a podcast. As InterVarsity increasingly serves South Asian students from various faith backgrounds Arul started the SAIV support network to aid them in their faith journeys. 

Arul is humbled to oversee the continued growth of the national SAIV movement and to see this generation of South Asian students passionately worshipping Jesus, embodying Him in their communities, and becoming a blessing to the world. Arul lives with his wife and sons in Orlando, FL.
