Wednesday Lunch Hour - Unapologetically Muslim: Supporting College Students' Identity

Wednesday, April 19, 2017
Noon - 12:50 pm
Genrich-Rusling Room, LeChase 215

Although Muslim students have a significant presence within American Higher education, they are generally ignored not only when it comes to campus policies and resources, but also within higher education literature. This presentation explores the history of Muslims in America and breaks down negative stereotypes that have hunted Muslim students in search of advanced educational opportunities. Participants will explore aspects of the Muslim identity development and factors that may hinder the students' development on campus. This presentation will provide recommendations that are aimed at informing practitioners in order to better understand and support this student population on campus.

Presented by Ayaa Elgoharry and Yasmin Elgoharry, Masters students in Higher Education at the Warner School of Education.

A light lunch will be served. Food will be available at 11:45 am. The program starts promptly at noon.
