One Community. One Family. One Ummah.

 

 

Who We Are

The Washington University in St. Louis Muslim Students Association (MSA) is a student group devoted to strengthening the Muslim community through education, service, and activism. We strive to educate both Muslims and people of other faiths about the religion of Islam, and facilitating a better environment for students on campus. We aim to create a strong, diverse network of students who are conscious of their Islamic identity and serve as a support group for Muslim students in regards to social and cultural issues occurring on campus and off campus. We strive to develop a diverse general body with members from a variety of cultures throughout the world. We also aim to remove stereotypes of Islam by holding events incorporating education and awareness to the Washington University student body.
