On Tuesday, November 15, American Islamic College welcomed students from Northwestern University’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute for an interfaith dialogue luncheon. President Daoud Casewit welcomed the group and introduced the College – its history, mission, and degree programs.
Along with President Casewit, Jawad Qureshi, Asst. Professor of Arabic & Islamic Studies at AIC, led the group in discussions about Islam and Muslims related to early Islamic history, Islam and Muslims in America, as well as, contemporary socio-political issues in the Muslim world.
Dr. Kathleen O’Brien, Vice President of Academic Affairs at AIC joined the dialogue. It was a great opportunity for the students to engage in thoughtful conversation over a shared meal. We wish the students much success in their studies and welcome further discussion and engagement.
