April 6: Seminar: Islamophobia – An Insight

Posted by isulib on April 4, 2016

Islamophobia – An Insight (11:00 am – 1:00 pm) Events Area

The Islamic faith is one of the world’s largest religions and can be found in almost every country across the globe. Media coverage in the USA typically only focuses on the actions of extremists, creating a culture of violence, fear, and hostiles. ISU is currently attracting more international students every year, meaning that we are increasing the number of Muslim students on and around campus.

This seminar will explore practical information related to the safety, security, and wellbeing of both Muslim students and Muslim community members in and around the Terre Haute area.

Topics covered will include: creating an inclusive environment for all Muslim students, faculty, and administrators, and appropriate ways of discussing and handling incidents on campus swiftly and appropriately. Panel discussion will follow.
