Islam: A Way of Life

With the rising number of Muslim students and the local Somali population matriculating at the University of St. Thomas, a series of lectures discussing Islam by subtopic is important for our community.

Interfaith dialogues on campus have brought major understanding between Islam and Catholicism, but discussing the root of the Islamic beliefs and values can bring a much greater understanding and appreciation of the diversity Muslim students bring to the university while breaking down stereotypes.

International Student Services will lead this effort in collaboration with the Saudi Club, Muslim Student Association, GMSA (Globally Minded Student Association), Campus Ministry, the Muslim/Christian Dialogue Center, the Women’s Center, SDIS, the Islamic Resource Group of Minneapolis, and the Department of Theology.

The lectures are free and open to students, faculty, staff and the public.
