Parent Organization: Religious Organizations
The Muslim Student Association at The University of Vermont initiated primarily to bring together Muslims of diverse backgrounds and cultures under one unified, organized, proactive community. The MSA also reaches out to those who are not Muslims, primarily to educate them about the misconceptions regarding Islam and the Islamic way of life, and to include anyone willing to stand up for truth, justice, and peace. Aside from fostering a social community, the MSA encourages mental, physical, and spiritual development through an array of athletic programs, spiritual discussion, academic forums, and charity events. The ultimate goal of the MSA is to encourage both Muslims and non-Muslims to evolve intellectually, physically, and spiritually during their tenure at The University of Vermont and to become enlightened, responsible, and just individuals.
