In the current climate where educational institutions nationally have been confronting a number of intense issues that are impacting students profoundly, we would like to acknowledge the unfortunate and hateful rhetoric that has been circulating through different media platforms, and the impact of cultural battle fatigue that it may be causing students and colleagues of the Muslim faith.
We know the students are also dealing with all of this in tandem with a stressful academic schedule with finals approaching.
We would like to provide some support for the Muslim students and professionals at Teachers College by hosting a meeting to bring everyone together in solidarity, and to provide a forum in which we can offer our support. The agenda primarily will be to express our care and concern and to assess how we can be most supportive.
Imam Shair Abdul-Mani, Special Advisor to the Columbia University Chaplain will facilitate.
