Muslim Ally Zone Training

The last year has seen an increase in bias incidents across the country.  The socio-political climate has enabled anti-Muslim sentiment to be at an all-time high, felt even on our campus by many students.  In response to this, the Islamic Center at NYU has developed NYU’s newest Zone Training: Muslim Ally Zone.

The course, which runs approximately 2 hours, has been created primarily to educate different departments about the religion of Islam, understanding the challenges of Islamophobia, and most importantly, reflecting upon the Muslim student experience on campus.

The presentation hopes to create a conversation and dialogue about sensitivities, misunderstandings, and controversies while giving an opportunity for you and your department to ask questions and have a greater awareness about challenges faced by Muslim students and colleagues across the university.

Please join us on either Monday, October 30th or Monday, November 13th, from 10a-12p at CMEP Lounge, Kimmel Center Rooms 804/805 and share with your students, offices, staffs,  and other networks.
