The Center for Muslim Life (CML) at Duke provides a welcoming environment for students to explore Muslim identity, celebrate Muslim cultures, build community, and engage with Islam in spiritual, social, and intellectual ways. Through the combined efforts of their staff, which includes an Office Coordinator, Student Development Coordinator, Muslim Chaplain, and Program Associate, the CML strives to attend to the needs of the diverse racial, ethnic, and religious community of Muslim students at Duke. Muslim Life at Duke aims to create a space where Muslims from marginalized communities feel welcome and are cared for.
In addition to programming that deals with issues in Muslim communities, the CML organize a variety of activities and events related to interfaith, community service, and social activism. CML’s programming creates spaces for students, staff, faculty, and community members to discuss issues related to faith, identity, spirituality, and activism.
CML staff serve as advisors to Duke’s very active undergraduate Muslim Student Association and Graduate Muslim Student Association. The CML provides a home away from home for students, staff, faculty, and community members who seek a Muslim community at Duke.
