Event Fosters Understanding of Islam, Opportunity to Meet Muslim Students

Contact: Jeff Murphy
WARRENSBURG, MO (March 6, 2017) – An event designed to help foster better understanding,  the University of Central Missouri will host the student-led program, “Discover Islam and Muslims,” from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 15, in Elliott Student Union, Room 240.

This is an opportunity for anyone who is interested to enjoy food while making connections with UCM’s Muslim students, who will share information about their faith. During the event, there will be eight different tables, each one hosted by two Muslim students who will discuss different topics related to Islam. Those attending can learn more about the five pillars of Islam, prophets, roles of Muslim women, and a whole lot more. Posters at these tables will provide additional information to help make this an educational and fun evening.

Those attending this free program have the opportunity to get to know UCM’s Muslim students of different ethnicities while also sampling a variety of different foods representative of their culture. All activities are free and open to the public.

The event is being sponsored by the Muslim Student Association, Saudi Students Club, and the UCM Center for Multiculturalism and Inclusivity. Anyone who has questions can contact the Center for Multiculturalism and Inclusivity at
