Ivy Muslims Conference 2021 - A Virtual Gathering

Event time: 
Friday, March 5, 2021 - 7:00pm to Saturday, March 6, 2021 - 12:30pm
Event description: 
Come celebrate community, conversation and culture at this year’s IMC! 
The Ivy League is a consortium of universities that share unique social, intellectual and professional opportunities and challenges. In the midst of contemporary American academic life, Muslims at these institutions grapple with these opportunities and challenges, as well as issues of identity and purpose. Thus, the Ivy Muslims Conference invites Muslims to explore, interrogate and discuss these issues, especially as they relate to their intellectual and spiritual lives, by bringing together hundreds of Muslim students from across the Ivy League for a weekend of networking, fellowship, and unique conversations about the intellectual and spiritual opportunities as well as challenges of being Muslim today. 
We invite students from the Ivies and beyond!
