The Muslim student community here at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is in urgent need of a Muslim center on campus. As you may recall, Chapel Hill was where the tragic shooting of the three young Muslim college students occurred. Following this heinous act, we have realized the need to establish a center on our campus that will promote and increase religious tolerance, interfaith dialogue, and general discussion about Islam.
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is the oldest public university in the nation and has had an organized Muslim student presence for over 40 years. Even though we are one of the largest organizations on campus, we do not have a permanent facility. In addition, there is no functional Muslim institution or mosque in the University or surrounding area. Because of all this, we have to hold our five daily prayers, our Friday sermon, and even our Ramadan iftar dinners and Eid prayers in a constantly-changing room provided by the University. As students, we organize and manage all of these services by ourselves and with no outside assistance.
We need to solidify our presence in our community and establish a Muslim center that will serve as a safe and stable home for the various religious, community service, and outreach activities we hold. We are working with University officials on this project and any help you provide will go a long way towards helping us reach this goal.
